The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in an increase in the demand for paracetamol-based drugs for the symptomatic treatment of fever in patients. The absence of direct drugs for the treatment of COVID-19 has led medical practitioners to opt for such symptomatic treatments. Paracetamol, owing to its widespread availability, has been recommended by various healthcare authorities across the world, such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), the National Health Service (NHS), the CDC, and the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHFW) of the Government of India, for managing fever in adults and children with COVID-19.

Technavio's custom research reports offer detailed insights on the impact of COVID-19 at an industry level, a regional level, and subsequent supply chain operations. This customized report will also help clients keep up with new product launches in direct & indirect COVID-19 related markets, upcoming vaccines and pipeline analysis, and significant developments in vendor operations and government regulations.

The market is driven by the use of paracetamol as OTC drugs. In addition, the growing number of approvals for paracetamol-based combinations is anticipated to boost the growth of the paracetamol market.

Patients with cough, common cold, and slight allergies often prefer self-medication with OTC drugs. Paracetamol/acetaminophen is one of the most common APIs used across a variety of OTC drugs offered in the form of syrups, tablets, injections, and suppositories. Paracetamol is combined with other formulations in about 600 OTC medications used for the treatment of various health conditions, such as allergies, common cold, sleeping disorders, and pain. The US, China, and the European Union (EU) countries are among the major consumers of paracetamol-based OTC drugs. Thus, the increasing use of paracetamol as an API in the OTC drugs will drive the growth of the market during the forecast period.
