Market Highlights:

The growth of geriatric population also drives the market as constipation affects the old people disproportionately due to natural slowing of digestive mechanism. The other factors driving the market are availability of laxatives as over the counter medicines without prescription and the off label use of laxatives. Laxative abuse is also driving the market as it results in habitual compulsory use of laxatives as the body is unable to expel faces due to excessive stimulation by chronic use of laxatives.

The market restraints are the side effects associated with the medicines such as their habit forming potential, flatulence, abdominal cramps, dehydration, disturbance of electrolyte balance, hypotension, hypokalaemia, rhabdomyolysis, steatorrhoea, etc. The market also faces a threat due to plethora of substandard products with dubious claims which reduces the credibility of the market.
