In terms of geographical distribution, North America captures over 40% share of the global industry revenue. US is the largest national industry for CIC drugs due to greater prevalence of lifestyle respective diseases, higher incidence of constipation, higher healthcare spending and rather greater adoption of pharmaceuticals for treating ailments. As per the National Institutes of Health (NIH) CIC affects approximately 63 Mn individuals in the US. On the other hand, growing awareness in the rapidly developing Asian countries such as China and India will create significant growth opportunities in the Asia Pacific industry.

In terms of industry segmentation by drug type, Lubiprostone drugs segment currently dominates the industry. However, the segment due to its relatively lower efficacy, patent loss and growing competition from Linaclotide will lose its dominance in the upcoming future. The Linaclotide drugs industry for CIC treatment is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 7.7% during 2016 – 2022.

Analyzing the symptoms, constipation is not considered as a disease but a condition, side effect or syndrome. This factor greatly contributes to the lesser visits from patients to address the issue. Thus over 65% of the CIC drugs industry is captured by OTC drugs segment. The OTC industry is expected to continue to dominate the industry at a CAGR of 6.6% during 2016 – 2022.
