Pharmaceutical end-use surpassed USD 45 million in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 80 million up to 2027. Increasing technological advancement, increase in the geriatric population and growing research & development spending by pharmaceutical companies should augment market share. Increasing consumer preference for preventive healthcare especially with the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic which boosted the demand for respiratory drugs should accelerate the erdosteine market growth.

Significant economic growth in emerging nations such as China, Brazil and India resulted in increased expenditure on healthcare and favorable government policies boosted foreign direct investment (FDI) which should trigger erdosteiene market growth. Moreover, the high prevalence of respiratory diseases such as asthma and lung disease primarily in Germany, UK and France have overburdened the healthcare systems and should drive product demand in pharmaceutical sector.

Rising adoption of e-cigarettes should augment the business growth in North America

Erdosteine Market by Region

North America should grow at a CAGR of over 8% to surpass USD 80 million by 2027 pertaining to the substantial prevalence of cigarette and tobacco smoking. The region has witnessed a growing adoption of e-cigarettes on account of increasing anti-smoking campaigns, rising cigarette prices and rising consumer preference for alternatives to combustible cigarettes. The high incidence of smoking has led to a rise in COPD cases, owing to weakening of lungs.

North America has witnessed a significant increase in mental health disorders such as anxiety, restlessness and suicidal thoughts primarily in young adults which is associated with a rise in smoking, drugs and alcohol consumption. The low perceived harm of e-cigarettes, desirable flavours, and rising curiosity among youth should drive e-cigarette adoption in the region which is likely to boost COPD prevalence and stimulate the erdosteine market share.

Mergers & acquisitions and research & development activities should drive market competitiveness

Global erdosteine industry share is consolidated, and the key players include Reipharm AB, Hanmi Pharmaceutical, Hikma Pharmaceuticals, Shandong Luoxin Pharmaceutical and Zhejiang Kangle Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. Various manufacturers are primarily focusing on strategic initiatives such as acquisitions, partnerships and joint ventures to expand product portfolio and achieve market growth. Leading companies are also engaged in significant research & development activities to expand the application potential of their products and gain additional customers.

For instance, Recipharm, a leading pharmaceutical company announced in 2020 that it was conducting research on its erdosteine product to investigate if it improved the recovery rate of COVID-19 patients after discharge from hospital. Various clinical studies were conducted to verify if the product enhances respiratory symptoms and reduces the time required to achieve a negative COVID-19 test result.
