Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is unhealthy lifestyle. In the present world, people work for extra hours to meet the deliverables at their jobs. This change in lifestyle has resulted in people ignoring health measures such as diet and physical exercise. The major consequences arising from this imbalanced lifestyle are excessive stress, obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases. Mouth ulcers can occur in patients as a side effect of these imbalances. Antibiotics and other medicines used for the treatment of these diseases can cause a change in the inner mucus lining, leading to various kinds of mouth ulcers”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is availability of OTC medicines. OTC medicines can be purchased from any medical store without a prescription or consultation with a healthcare practitioner. Mouth ulcers have fewer complications in the initial stage and can be cured without medicines or preferably with OTC medicines, thereby preventing people from undergoing a medical diagnosis or consulting a doctor.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is threat from counterfeit products. The threat from counterfeit products is increasing globally. Counterfeit products are usually contaminated with petrochemicals, bacteria, and other harmful chemicals during the manufacturing process to reduce the production cost. Since they are cheap and fake, they affect the brand image and profit of the company.
