Global Chronic Idiopathic Constipation (CIC) Treatment Market Dynamics

Increasing number of clinical trials and approval of drug candidates introduced by pharmaceutical companies to fulfil the unmet medical needs of the CIC treatment are significant factors driving the global market growth. For instance, March 2018, Shire Plc received a new drug application from the U.S. FDA for its drug candidate, SHP555 (prucalopride) for the indication of chronic idiopathic constipation in adults. Moreover, in 2015, SHP555 (prucalopride) received approval from the European Commission for the symptomatic treatment of chronic constipation in adults, with failure of laxative treatment. Furthermore, Renexxion is conducting the Phase 2 clinical trial for Naronapride (ATI-7505) for the treatment of multiple gastrointestinal disorders, which include CIC.  However, around 50% of patients with chronic constipation are said to be dissatisfied with their current treatment, primarily due to lack of efficacy, which highlights a continued medical need for more effective and safer therapeutic agents.

The use of alternate therapy such as home-based remedies and herbal medications, such as herbal laxatives, probiotic foods, etc., are however, predicted to restrain the global market growth.
