As per the World Gastroenterology Organization, the prevalence rate of GERD is growing rapidly across the world. It was valued at approximately 2.5%-6.6% in South East Asia and almost 13.8%-25.8% in North America. In the geriatric population, acidic complications are recurrent, which provides a unique challenge, for both, the primary care providers and gastroenterologists. Thus, rising cases of GERD the market is expected to witness high demand.
Scope of the Report
As per the scope of this report, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) covers various diagnostic and treatment of GERD.

Key Market Trends
Proton Pump Inhibitors is the Segment by Drug Type expected to Hold Largest Market Share over the Forecast Period
The Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPI) characterize the maximum potency in inhibiting gastric acid secretion, primarily by blocking the acid pump. These inhibitors are well-known, for both, therapeutic effects and good safety profiles. Heartburn and regurgitation are the most common acid reflux-related symptoms in Canadian patients, and many individuals self-diagnose and self-treat these symptoms. PPIs are the most successful short-term treatment for recurrent or severe heartburns. The OTC status of some PPI drugs is expected to augment their sales. There is an abundance of PPIs drugs, in both, branded and generic segments. Thus, owing to the all above-mentioned factors the market is expected to witness high growth.
North America is Expected to Hold Largest Market Share over the Forecast Period
The United States is expected to be the largest market owing to the presence of better healthcare infrastructure and the rising prevalence of GERD. In the United States, tablet (chewable form) and liquid forms are most widely used. There is a rising prevalence of GERD across the world, although there are marked differences in the reported prevalence, ranging from 14% to 26% in North America. However, it can be correlated with the rising prevalence of obesity, along with other dietary factors, in many countries. GERD can be associated with the impact on the quality of life and reduction in personal and work-related productivity. In the United States, major selling drugs include omeprazole, Pantoprazole Sodium, and Nexium. Thus, owing to the lifestyle change and rising cases of GERD the market is expected to grow.
