TRULANCE was already approved as a medicine for treating chronic idiopathic constipation (CIC) in adults.

Likewise, in November 2018, EA Pharma Co., Ltd. in Japan has launched its MOVICOL in powdered form.

Thus, due to the number of product launches in the market, the constipation treatment market will flourish during the forecast period.
