Ranitidine is a histamine type 2 (H2) receptor blocker drug available by prescription as well as over-the-counter (OTC). Ranitidine is used in treatment of intestinal & stomach ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and erosive esophagitis, and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. Stomach ulcer or peptide ulcer causes open sores in the inner lining of stomach and upper portion of small intestine. Ranitidine helps to reduce excessive acid production in patient’s stomach. Increasing prevalence of risk factors to cause peptide ulcers in patients such as use of pain relievers, use of certain medications (steroids, low-dose aspirin, combination of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) with pain relievers), smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, untreated stress and easting of spicy foods; greatly increases the chance of developing ulcers.

Ranitidine market is expected to witness growth during the forecast period, owing to growing prevalence of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and stomach and intestinal ulcers, worldwide. For instance, a review study published in the Gut Journal in June 2014, estimated the range of GERD prevalence in global population, in 2014. This study reported GERD prevalence as 18%- 28% in North America, 9%-26% in Europe, 3%-8% in East Asia, 9%-33% in Middle East, 12% in Australia, and 23% in Latin America. According to this statistics, North America and Middle East are at higher risk to develop GERD disease.

Furthermore, higher efficacy and tolerability of ranitidine in suppression of stomach & intestinal ulcers is increasing the adoption of ranitidine-based medication in the market.
