Mucus hypersecretion is a clinical feature of respiratory diseases such as COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), asthma, and cystic fibrosis. Mucolytics decrease mucous and sputum viscosity. Mucoactive agent or drugs are the medication of choice for the treatment of respiratory disease. Mucolytic drugs classified as an expectorant, mucokinetics, mucoregulators, and mucolytics based on their mechanism of action. Mucolytic medication class acts by reducing the irritation of cough receptors due to mucus accumulation. Mucolytics are inhaled that help thin the mucous in the airways. Mucolytics drugs are used to treat the output of bronchial secretion and enhance the clearance of bronchial exudate. Common cold may lead to developing bronchitis or respiratory disease and mucolytic becomes important to enhance their immunity along with treatment.
Least chance of side effects with the use of Mucolytic remedies even in patients who are allergic to drugs is the significant driving factor in the market. The cost-effectiveness of mucolytic cold remedies as compared to other drugs in the developing world further expected to drive the growth of Mucolytics market. The patient who has other chronic health condition can prefer mucolytics medicines to minimize the adverse drug interaction enhancing the revenue generation in the mucolytic market. The major factors favoring the growth of the market are constant medical advances, increasing awareness. However, ignorance towards treatment in hamlets along with improper hygiene are some of the factors that might restrain the growth of the market. Mucolytics are considered safe and associated with low risk of an adverse event of people with the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The use of Mucolytics is high in the industrialized economies as compared to developing economies.
The Global Mucolytics market is segmented on the basis of Agent Type, Drug Type and by Distribution channel

Rapidly increasing prevalence rate of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is the major driver in the Mucolytics market. The global Mucolytics market by Drug type is expected to be dominated by Classic mucolytics depolymerize mucin glycoproteins and Peptides mucolytics, the cause of higher adoption by patients and due to relatively superior ability in improving immune system as well as cold. Dorsha alpha is an inhaled medication and referred to as a mucolytic to improve lung function and reduce exacerbations and lung infection. By distribution channel, pharmacies expected to dominate the Mucolytic market due to higher patient footfall. The manufacturers in the global Mucolytic drug market are focusing on increasing their product footprints in the different regions and updating their marketing strategy majorly based on the advantages of medicines. Lung-related problems are the most common cause of Mucolytics. Unhealthy lifestyle leading to various lifestyle-related disorders like Asthma and cough could also lead to Mucolytics.
Over the globe, North America followed by Europe is anticipated to offer lucrative market opportunities to the new market players in Mucolytics industry. This is due to the presence of a large patient pool for Chronic lungs disorders majorly chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in both regions. North America and Europe cumulatively hold a significant market share in terms of value in Mucolytics market. However, due to the growing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and asthma patient pool, growing adoption of mucolytic drugs, high diagnostic rate followed by treatment rate for lungs disorders, along with the strong presence of domestic players allows South Asia and East Asia region cumulatively to register third largest market value in global Mucolytics market. Whereas, the Middle East and Africa is anticipated to be the least lucrative Mucolytics market growing at a sluggish rate.
Examples of some of the market participants in the global Mucolytics market identified are: Bayer HealthCare AG, GlaxoSmithKline plc., Novartis AG, AstraZeneca plc., Procter & Gamble, Sun Pharmaceuticals Ltd., Pfize, Atley Pharmaceuticals, Vertical Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Toray Industries and others.
