Technavio’s research analysts categorize the global mouth ulcer market into the following segments by drug type. They are:

  • Corticosteroid and analgesic drugs
  • Antibacterial drugs
  • Antihistamine drugs
  • Others

The top three drug type segments for the global mouth ulcer market are discussed below:

Corticosteroid and analgesic drugs

Corticosteroids are generally used for the treatment of any inflammation, redness, allergic reaction, and itching in the body. They reduce the redness and pain caused due to various types of ulcers.

According to Amber Chourasia, a lead health and wellness research analyst from Technavio, “Corticosteroid and analgesic drugs are preferred by medical practitioners and have a high demand in the market due to their chemical properties and importance in the first line of treatment. These drugs are priced in the premium range, generating high revenue for manufacturers and suppliers, due to the high demand and the use of specialty chemicals.”

Antibacterial drugs

Antibacterial drugs, generally known as antibiotics, are the most commonly used products for health disorders. These drugs are preferred as the second line of treatment for mouth ulcers. Antibacterial drugs are used for the treatment of minor aphthous ulcers and major aphthous ulcers.

Antibacterial drugs are used in the case of stomatitis and inflammation of the mucous lining of any soft tissue such as cheeks, gums, tongue, lips, and palate. Stomatitis is caused due to several reasons such as poor oral hygiene, burns from hot foods and drinks, and side effects from other medications,” says Amber.

Antihistamine drugs

Histamine is a chemical released by the immune system during any allergic reaction. Antihistamine drugs are used in various formulations to block the allergic reaction. The preferred form for the use of antihistamines is oral tablets. These drugs are available both in OTC form and as prescribed medicines.

The supply and availability of antihistamine drugs are limited. They are predominantly used as a second line of treatment for mouth ulcers. The lower product penetration and limited availability of the products through the online platform is a challenge for the market growth for this segment.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s research analysts in this report are:

  • Church & Dwight
  • Novartis Pharmaceuticals
  • Valeant Pharmaceuticals
