Throat Lozenges

As per industry analysis on throat lozenges by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the global market is expected to increase at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2022 to 2026.

The World Health Organization (WHO) predicts that by 2050, over 2 billion people would be in the geriatric population bracket. Older individuals frequently suffer from throat infections, which increases the sales of throat lozenges.

Vitamins and herbal products are often used by people over the age of 50. The aging population is at higher risk of catching diseases and becoming sick. This is driving demand for a variety of items that improve overall body health and immunity while being cost-effective when compared to pharmaceutical treatment.

HIV patients are at higher risk of contracting infections, and increasing HIV cases is a major market growth driver. Reduced immunity in people as a result of dietary changes and sedentary lifestyles also drives demand for lozenges, as these factors contribute to a rise in throat infections.

Throat lozenge manufacturers are working on variations enhanced with natural herbs and chemicals that boost immunity. Other market variables, such as increasing consumer expenditure capacities and considerable growth in the pharmaceutical business, are expected to propel the market forward.
