Pregnancy Medication Market size is poised to surpass USD 112 billion by 2032, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Increased awareness about the benefits of dietary supplements in pregnancy and healthy childbirth is a crucial factor positively influencing the industry landscape. Gynecologists globally recommend consuming dietary supplements such as iron, calcium, folic acid, vitamins, minerals, and other micronutrients to support maternal health and improve birth outcomes.

Health conditions such as folate deficiency, anemia, etc., caused due to improper nutrition have become quite predominant in expecting mothers and lead to severe health consequences such as neural tube defects (NTDs). These intricacies, coupled with the increasing focus on ensuring mother and fetal health, may drive the industry revenues.

Growing incidences of acidity and heartburn to increase the share of antacids

Pregnancy medication market from antacids segment is projected to witness more than 11% CAGR from 2023 to 2032. The escalating hormonal changes and growing baby pressing against the stomach can lead to conditions such as heartburn, acid reflux, or indigestion. Antacids help neutralize the acid in the stomach and do not cause any harm to the unborn. The increased severity of vomiting and nausea during the pregnancy and the easy over-the-counter availability of these medications will bolster the segment progression.
