Laxatives Market Regional Analysis:

The global laxatives market, by region, has been segmented into Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa (MEA). Among these regional segments, North America has been projected to account for the maximum share of the market through the review period. The U.S, and Canada are expected to contribute remarkably towards the development of the regional laxatives market in the forthcoming years. One of the primary factors inducing market growth is the sedentary lifestyle adopted by the population in the region. It is also expected to increase the burden of obesity, which is projected to have a favorable impact on the rising patient population of constipation. The food pattern of the region is also highly unhealthy. This, in turn, is likely to catapult the laxatives market on its growth trajectory.

Europe is forecasted to maintain its stand at the second spot over the next couple of years. Europe is anticipated to benefit from the increasing cases of irritable bowel syndromes witnessed in the region. This, in turn, is anticipated to boost the sales of laxatives in the years to come. The region has also been observing a drastic change in the lifestyle of the people. The dependency on an unhealthy diet, in conjunction with a physically inactive lifestyle, is expected to favor the expansion of the laxatives market over the next few years. In addition, the availability of laxatives without prescription over the OTC counters is poised to optimize the growth of the market in the region across the review period.

Asia Pacific is prognosticated to exhibit rapid developments over the next few years. The growth of the regional segment can be ascribed to the exponentially increasing population. A drastic rise in the patient population is expected owing to increasing population, which is projected to drive the growth of the region in the years to come. Also, the advancements in the healthcare industry are likely to boost the expansion of the industry over the next few years. The Middle East & Africa is projected to exhibit developmental opportunities. However, lack of access to standard medical services in certain regions, especially in Africa, is poised to restrict the growth of the regional segment.
