Over-the-Counter Drugs Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

Over 90% of U.S. adults prefer to treat their minor ailments themselves before seeking professional care. So, over-the-counter (OTC) drug products play an increasingly vital role in America's healthcare system. OTC drugs are nonprescription, defined as drugs that are safe and effective for use by the general public without seeking treatment by a health professional. Among these products are analgesics, digestive remedies, and dermatologicals.

The FDA reviews OTC drugs, primarily handled by the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research Office of Drug Evaluation IV. Because there are over 300,000 marketed OTC drug products, FDA reviews the active ingredients and the labeling of over 80 therapeutic classes of drugs, for example analgesics or antacids, instead of individual drug products.

MarketResearch.com’s comprehensive market research and company reports on the OTC drug industry provide full coverage of OTC drugs, including the cough remedy, contraceptive and smoking cessation markets. Reports focus on consumer health trends and developments and include data on market segmentation, size and growth in the U.S., U.K., Europe, Asia, and global markets.
