Global Antacids Market is valued approximately USD XXX billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow with a healthy growth rate of more than XX% over the forecast period 2023-2030. Antacid is a sort of medicine that aids to reduce stomach acid and alleviates symptoms associated to excess acid. These over-the-counter medications have sodium bicarbonate, calcium, magnesium, or aluminum as active ingredients. They function by combining with stomach acid to create neutral chemicals that can lessen the acidity of the stomach contents. Antacids can therefore be used to treat symptoms including indigestion, heartburn, and acid reflux. Antacids are frequently used to treat symptoms brought on by excessive stomach acid. They aid in balancing the acid that is responsible for the burning in the chest or stomach. The key factor driving the market growth is rising prevalence of acid reflux and GERD, easy availability of OTC antacids, and rise in the demand for antacids among geriatric population that anticipated to support the market growth during forecast period.

Moreover, the rising geriatric population is one of the factors contributing to the growth of the antacids market. As people age, they are more prone to developing gastrointestinal problems such as acid reflux, heartburn, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). These conditions can cause discomfort and pain in the chest and throat and can also lead to other health complications. Thus, the rising geriatric population is anticipated to support the market growth. According to The World Bank, in 2015, the number of people aged 65 and above in India was 74.61 million and the number reached 95.75 million in 2021. Also, according to the same source, in 2016, the 22% of total population ages 65 and above in Italy and the number is reached 24% in 2021. As a result, the rising geriatric population in the region is anticipated to create a lucrative demand for the market. Additionally, rapidly changing lifestyle of global population is anticipated to create the lucrative opportunity for the market during forecast period. However, the growing number of alternatives in the market for antacids may stifles market growth throughout the forecast period of 2023-2030.
