Key Trends and Analysis of the Omeprazole Market:

Market players are actively investing in research for developing novel medications for treating duodenal or gastric ulcers, and chronic heartburn thus bolstering the market growth. For instance, on December 11, 2018, Dr. Reddy’s Laboratories launched omeprazole delayed-release tablets, which are store-brand equivalent of Prilosec OTC tablets in the U.S. market.

Furthermore, market players are focused on developing innovative technologies to offer treatment for heartburn. For instance, in April 2018, Perrigo Company plc. and its partner Dexcel Pharma Technologies, Ltd., launched Omeprazole delayed release orally disintegrating tablets (ODT) 20mg, with innovative MelTech melt-in-your-mouth technology for treating frequent heartburn. An innovative technology provides an affordable option in the OTC category.

However, increasing adoption of alternative proton pump inhibitor drugs such as lansoprazole, rabeprazole, pantoprazole, and esomeprazole to treat heartburn, gastric, and duodenal ulcers and other conditions are expected to hinder the market growth.
