According to Technavio analysts, one of the key factors contributing to the growth of the global antacids market is the rising geriatric population:

Global antacids market: Rising geriatric population

The occurrence of acidity and heartburn among geriatric population increases with rising age. There is a valve at the lower end of the esophagus that is designed to keep acid in the stomach but with age, the valve or sphincter in the lower esophagus tends to relax, which allows acid to reflux or flow backward, causing heartburn. Also, heartburn and acidity are caused when the digestive system tends to slow down among the geriatric population with increasing age. Age is directly related to the increase in various disorders, including GERD, thus, the rising geriatric population is a major driving factor for the antacids market.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio, “The US census bureau says, in 2015, people aged 65 years and above were approximately 617 million, and the number is expected to reach 1,566 million by 2050. Also, as per data collected by the world bank and the NIH, the percentage of the geriatric population is expected to grow from 8.48% in 2016 to approximately 17% by 2050. Thus, the demand for antacid is expected to increase with the rising population, thereby driving the market.”
