Saline Laxatives Market - Size, Share, Trends, and Forecast to 2026

Saline Laxatives Market - Size, Share, Trends, and Forecast to 2026

Saline laxatives are used to treat constipation or to cleanse the colon in preparation for a colonoscopy. Saline laxative work by absorbing water into the intestine, which softens the stool. These drugs rapidly increase the frequency of complete bowel actions, reduce constipation-associated symptoms and improve disease-related quality of life. Mild saline laxatives such as milk of magnesia and oral magnesium hydroxide have been used to treat constipation during pregnancy.
Market Dynamics
Increasing number of constipation incidences coupled with rising geriatric population base worldwide is the major factor driving the saline laxatives market growth. Low fluid and fibre diet intake may also play a major role in onset of constipation. According to the AGA Journal 2011 data, constipation affects 12% to 19% of Americans every year; its prevalence increases with age and it affects women more than men. Constipation causes psychological impairment, social distress, sexual dysfunction, altered interpersonal relationship, and impairment in quality of life. It has a major impact on social and economic burden. As per U.S. FDA, Americans spend more than US$ 700 million annually on over-the-counter laxatives.
Constipation during pregnancy is a common problem. According to the BMC journal 2012 data, the reported prevalence of constipation in pregnant women varies between 11 to 38% and occurs mostly during the third trimester, although symptoms can be present from 12 weeks gestation. However, most obstetricians advise avoiding laxatives during pregnancy and prescribe stool softeners instead due to its potential side effects.
Side effects associated with over dose of saline laxative including cathartic colon, intestinal paralysis, lazy or laxative gut, pancreatitis, irritable bowel syndrome can confine the saline laxative market growth during the forecast period. In 2014, the FDA issued a warning about the use of saline laxatives. Saline laxatives that contain the active ingredient sodium phosphate can lead to abnormal levels of electrolytes, dehydration, heart and kidney problems, and death.
