These drugs help reduce the activity of cough reflex and suppresses the urge to cough.

Increasing launches and approvals of new suppressants is expected to propel the growth of the global cough suppressant drugs market. For example, in 2017, Aurobindo Pharma received final nod from the US health regulator for its Guaifenesin extended-release tablets used as expectorant. According to the company, these tablets help to loosen phlegm, and thin bronchial secretions to rid bronchial passageways of bothersome mucus and make coughs more productive.


Stringent rules and regulations regarding the use of cough suppressant drugs are expected to hinder growth of the market during the forecast period. For example, in January 2018, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) changed labels on such medication to limit their use and provide additional safety information. According to the new regulations, children under 18 should not use prescription cough and cold medicines containing codeine or hydrocodone.

Moreover, the Colorado and Health Canada banned the sales of non-prescription drugs containing the cough suppressant dextromethorphan and codeine, respectively.
