Laxatives are substances taken to bring about defecation in cases of bloating or constipation. These substances act on the muscles in the intestines to bring about stronger contractions, which allow for smoother movement of the feces through the guts. Laxatives also work on the principle of enhancing the movement of water towards the large intestine, which is a key factor enabling smooth bowel movements. The growing prevalence of constipation in the urban populace, which has easy access to over the counter medication, is likely to be a major driver for the global laxatives market over the forecast period. Other factors such as the growing prevalence of a sedentary lifestyle and obesity are also likely to play a key role in the growth of the laxatives market over the forecast period.
On the other hand, the risk of overuse and abuse of laxatives is the primary threat acting against the global laxatives market. Laxative overuse can, paradoxically, result in constipation, as the body’s muscles stop reacting to the constant stimulation provided by the laxatives. The product landscape of the laxatives market is also littered with a number of products that make unverifiable claims, leading to further customer dissatisfaction and health risks. This is likely to be a key restraint against the global laxatives market over the forecast period.
