Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) refers to a chronic medical condition that affects the large intestine. It is usually caused by severe infection, stressful lifestyle, changes in gut microbes, muscle contractions in the intestine, and abnormalities in the nervous system. It can be characterized by gas, diarrhea, cramping, bloating, constipation, weight loss, vomiting, abdominal pain, and difficulty in swallowing.

Several medications are currently available to relieve mild symptoms of IBS, including rifaximin, loperamide, laxatives, antispasmodics, fiber supplements, and coated peppermint oil capsules. Doctors also recommend probiotics and mental health therapies, such as cognitive behavioral-therapy (CBT), gut-directed hypnotherapy, and relaxation training, to treat certain patients.

Several factors increase the risk of IBS diseases, including food intolerances or sensitivities, bacterial infections in the digestive tract, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, and mental disorders like anxiety, depression, and somatic symptom. This, along with improving diagnostic modalities and easy access to healthcare services, represents one of the key factors bolstering the growth of the market.

Furthermore, IBS is one of the most common functional gastrointestinal disorders among the elderly. In confluence with this, the rising geriatric population across the globe is influencing the market positively. Besides this, several clinical trials, such as fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT), are being conducted to improve the treatment of IBS, which is contributing to market growth.

In addition to this, as part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), governing agencies of various countries have pledged to substantially increase spending on research and development (R&D) projects and the number of researchers by 2030. This, in turn, is projected to expand the number of potential treatment options for IBS in the future.
