Additionally, the market is expanding due to the rising incidence of gastrointestinal ailments such as reflux and other stomach problems. As per the NCBI study 2020, it was estimated that 1.03 billion individuals worldwide, or around 13.98% of the total population, suffer from GERD. The necessity for appropriate therapy is being driven by the condition's increasing occurrence. A larger risk may apply to those who use over-the-counter medications to address unknown conditions. Here, Esomeprazole plays an important role in treatment. Thus, the increasing prevalence of gastrointestinal ailments is projected to drive market growth.

One isomeric version of omeprazole is esomeprazole, which is usually taken as a magnesium salt. It is marketed under the brand name Nexium and is used to treat a number of ailments, including peptic ulcers, esophagitis, and GERD. It also lowers the production of stomach acid. It is also applied to Zollinger-Ellison syndrome sufferers. However, it has a number of negative effects, some of which are common and include headache, constipation, dry mouth, and stomach discomfort, despite its potential effectiveness, which may impede market growth.

The benefits offered by capsules over other dose forms, namely their quick-acting nature and propensity to degrade faster than tablets, boost their prescription rate. Furthermore, the patient population may readily get and afford capsules since they are available in both branded and generic versions. The research and development of safe and effective Esomeprazole medicine is expected to drive market growth.
