Gastrointestinal Bleeding Treatment Market Size

Gastrointestinal Bleeding Treatment Market size was valued at USD 808 million in 2023 and is expected to reach USD 1.6 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 7.9% over the analysis period. One of the primary drivers is rising cases of gastrointestinal disorders such as peptic ulcers, gastritis, and colorectal cancer, which lead to bleeding in the digestive tract.

Gastrointestinal Bleeding Treatment Market

Additionally, the rising geriatric population, who are more prone to gastrointestinal bleeding due to age-related changes in the digestive system, is contributing to market growth. For instance, studies have shown that the rate of admission for acute upper GI bleeding increases significantly with age, with a 30-fold increase between the third and ninth decades of life. Moreover, technological advancements in endoscopy procedures and diagnostic imaging techniques have further fuelled market expansion by increasing the diagnosis and treatment adoption of gastrointestinal bleeding.

Gastrointestinal bleeding, also known as GI bleeding, refers to any bleeding that occurs in the gastrointestinal tract, which includes the oesophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine (colon), rectum, and anus. Gastrointestinal bleeding treatment refers to the medical interventions aimed at stopping or managing bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract. This can include various approaches depending on the cause and severity of the bleeding, such as endoscopic procedures, surgery, and supportive care. The goal is to stabilize the patient, control bleeding, and prevent complications.

Gastrointestinal Bleeding Treatment Market Trends

  • Increasing incidence of gastrointestinal bleeding (GIB) is a significant driver of the market.
  • Several factors such as rising aging population coupled with increasing prevalence of gastrointestinal disorders such as peptic ulcers, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), as well as the growing use of NSAID’s is contribution to the increasing cases of GI tract bleeding.
  • For instance, as per the National Institute of Health (NIH), peptic ulcer disease (PUD) affects four million people worldwide annually and has an estimated lifetime prevalence of 5−10% in the general population.
  • Additionally, lifestyle factors such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and poor dietary habits also play a role in the development of GI bleeding.
  • Thus, as the incidence of GI bleeding continues to rise, there is a growing need for effective treatments to manage this condition and its complications, driving the growth of the market.

Gastrointestinal Bleeding Treatment Market Analysis

  • Moreover, advancements in endoscopic technology, including improved device designs and better visualization capabilities, enhance the efficacy and safety of these devices, further boosting their market share.


Gastrointestinal Bleeding Treatment  Market, By GI Tract Division (2023)

Based on GI tract division, the gastrointestinal bleeding treatment market is segmented into upper GI tract and lower GI tract. The upper GI tract segment held a dominant market share of 72.4% in 2023.

  • Higher market share of upper GI tract bleeding can be attributed to the high incidence of peptic ulcers that develop in the stomach or the upper part of the small intestine (duodenum).
  • Additionally, rising cases of gastritis, esophagitis, Mallory-Weiss tears (tears in the mucous membrane at the junction of the esophagus and stomach), and certain cancers contribute to upper GI bleeding, further enhancing the segment expansion.

Based on onset, the gastrointestinal bleeding treatment market is classified into acute and chronic. The acute segment is expected to reach USD 1.1 billion by 2032.

  • Acute GI tract bleeding, characterized by the sudden onset of bleeding in the GI tract, often requires immediate medical attention and intervention.
  • Additionally, the rising prevalence of risk factors such as NSAID use, alcohol consumption, and Helicobacter pylori infection has led to a higher incidence of acute GI bleeding cases.
  • Furthermore, the availability of innovative hemostatic agents and the growing adoption of minimally invasive surgical procedures have further expanded the market for acute GI bleeding treatments.

Based on end-use, the gastrointestinal bleeding treatment market is classified into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and other end-users. The hospitals segment dominated the market in 2023 and is anticipated to grow at 7.8% CAGR between 2024- 2032.

  • The hospitals segment holds a substantial share in the market, driven by its pivotal role as a primary healthcare provider for acute and chronic conditions.
  • Hospitals offer a comprehensive range of treatment options, including endoscopic interventions and surgical procedures, making them a prominent end-user of GI tract bleeding treatments.
  • Further, their advanced infrastructure, specialized medical staff, and access to cutting-edge technologies contribute significantly to their dominance in the market.
  • Additionally, hospitals often serve as referral centers for complex cases, further solidifying their position in the gastrointestinal bleeding treatment landscape.
