Peptic ulcer disease represents a group of ulcerative disorders such as gastritis, gastric ulcers, and duodenal ulcers or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Treatment of peptic ulcers is achieved through drugs such as proton pump inhibitors (PPI), potassium-competitive acid blockers (P-CAB), antacid, H2-antagonist, antibiotics, and ulcer protective drugs such as sucralfate. Increasing usage of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin due to increasing inflammatory conditions is the major factor driving the growth of the global peptic ulcer drugs market. However, side effects of long-term use of PPIs, changing government policies, loss of market exclusivity of a majority of peptic ulcer drugs, and limited R&D efforts in the field of peptic ulcer drugs are factors expected to hamper the growth of peptic ulcer drugs market, globally.
