The prevalence of hemorrhoids is found particularly between the age of 45 and 65, both in men and women. However, only a small percentage of the affected population seek any form of medical treatment like medication or surgery and instead opt for relief pills purchased from pharmacies.
Hemorrhoid is a highly uncomfortable disorder which is also known as piles. The condition is so subtle yet dangerous that most people under the age of fifty are unaware of the same. Hemorrhoids are inflamed, swollen veins situated in the anal canal and causes a strong sense of irritation in the form of both pain and itchiness. Patients who suffer from the same condition seek relief from a variety of products, boasting both negatives and positives. Direct products like wipes, creams, pads, and suppositories are highly effective at offering temporary period of relief. However, it is not effective enough for permanent treatments.
According to the latest report by the team of Market Research Future (MRFR), the global hemorrhoids treatment market size is expected to grow at a decent rate of 7.1% during the forecast period of 2018 to 2023. The market growth is influenced by numerous factors like the increasing prevalence of lifestyle-based diseases, growing demand for treatment, an increasing demand for reducing infections & complications relating to hemorrhoids, and an increasing number of surgeries. The growing old-age population is also one of the key contributors to the global demand for hemorrhoids treatment. However, lack of awareness and hesitancy towards medical treatment due to the feeling of embarrassment stands out as a key constraint to the growth of the global market.
