Market Report Description

The North America Antacids Market would witness market growth of 2.5% CAGR during the forecast period (2023-2029).

Antacids may be used to alleviate some of the symptoms brought on by stomach ulcers and duodenal ulcers in the gut. These may also be used when neutralizing stomach acid is beneficial in other circumstances, such as sporadic episodes of dyspepsia. It functions by counteracting the acid produced in the stomach. They do this because antacids include bases (also known as alkalis), which are the chemical opposites of acids. Neutralization refers to the reaction between a base and an acid. The stomach contents are less caustic as a result of this neutralization. This may lessen ulcer-related pain as well as the burning that comes with acid reflux.

When antacids neutralize stomach acid, gas can be produced that may result in wind (flatulence). Simethicone, an ingredient frequently found in antacid medicines, helps prevent this foaming effect. Alginates are present in a large number of popular antacids. Most alginates function by creating a gel that floats over the stomach contents. By serving as a barrier, the gel stops stomach acid from aggravating the esophagus.

The rising incidence of gastro-esophageal illnesses and the aging population are increasing the demand in the region. Due to changes in lifestyle and other factors, the majority of Americans experience gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). In addition, over 60 million people in North America report having heartburn every once a month, resulting in heartburn becoming a common problem. Similarly, there are millions of antacid users in Canada. Antacids are explicitly advised for usage by Canadians by Health Canada. The FDA requested that manufacturers conduct more studies and testing on each antacid pill, as well as on how much of it to use and any potential side effects. These factors collectively propel the antacid market in this region forward.
