Global Cetirizine Hydrochloride Market to Surpass US$ 1.4 Billion by 2026 - Coherent Market Insights


Seattle, Aug. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- According to Coherent Market Insights, the global cetirizine hydrochloride market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1,100 million in 2017 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.2% over the forecast period (2018–2026).

Key Trends and Analysis of the Cetirizine Hydrochloride Market:

The global cetirizine hydrochloride market is expected to be driven by increasing incidence of allergic conditions including allergic rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, and eczema. According to the National Health Interview Survey (NHIS), 2014, around 8.4% of U.S. children under age 18 suffered from hay fever, 10% from respiratory allergies, 5.4% from food allergies, and 11.6% from skin allergies. Furthermore, market players are actively investing into research for developing innovative products, thus bolstering the market growth. For instance, in May 2017, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the ophthalmic solution named Zerviate developed by Aciex Therapeutics, Inc., acquired by Nicox S.A. Zerviate is a second-generation histamine-1 (H1) receptor antagonist used for topical application in treating ocular itching associated with allergic conjunctivitis.

Moreover, market players are focused on mergers and acquisition agreements to expand the product offerings. For instance, in September 2017, Nicox Ophthalmics, Inc., a subsidiary of Nicox S.A., entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with Eyevance Pharmaceuticals LLC, for the commercialization of Zerviatetm (cetirizine ophthalmic solution) 0.24%, in the US, thereby pursuing the expansion of the product into additional markets. However, adverse effects caused by the drug such as drowsiness, diarrhea, vomiting and excessive tiredness are expected to hinder the market growth.
