Gastroparesis Treatment Market Analysis and In-depth Research

Gastroparesis, also known as delayed gastric emptying, can be defined as a disease of the stomach muscles or the nerves controlling these muscles that causes the stomach muscles to stop functioning. It affects the spontaneous movement of the stomach muscles. Impaired mobility of the stomach muscles leads to emptying of the stomach. Gastroparesis occurs due to damage to the vagus nerve either because of injury or illness. Gastroparesis that commonly occurs among people is known as idiopathic gastroparesis, indicating that the actual cause of the disease is unclear. Diabetes is other common cause of gastroparesis, as high blood sugar levels leads to slow damage of the vagus nerve causing gastroparesis. The common symptoms of the disease include nausea, feeling of fullness, gastroesophagial reflux, abdominal bloating, lack of appetite, and pain in the stomach area.

The global gastroparesis treatment market is anticipated to record moderate growth during the forecast period. Growth of the market can be attributed to increase in prevalence of diabetes mellitus among people, rise in number of surgeries being performed which could lead to post-operative gastroparesis, introduction of novel drugs, and focus of market players on research and development to launch specific drugs for the treatment of gastroparesis. Additionally, untapped opportunities in the emerging markets such as India and China are likely to fuel the growth of the market. However, usage of non-prescription drugs, side effects of available gastroparesis drugs, and stringent regulatory environment for the approval of new drugs are expected to restrain the market during the forecast period.
