NEWARK, Del, Nov. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — According to the most recent industry data by Future Market Insights, the global antihistamine market was valued at approximately US$ 263.9 billion in 2022 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.6% over the forecast period. By 2033, the market is projected to grow to US$ 647.7 billion.

Antihistamines are medicines that are commonly used for relieving individuals experiencing common symptoms like running nose, sneezing, itchy throat, conjunctivitis, and others. These symptoms are very basic and common ones, so their prevalence is quite high, owing to the increase in the demand for the antihistamine drugs.

According to WHO, apparently, 262 million people were affected by asthma in 2019. It is a long-term condition affecting both children and adults. Even though it differs from person to person, it includes allergic reactions because of exposure to dust, tree pollen, animal fur, fumes or changes in weather. Antihistamines are certainly not the first-line treatment for asthma, but it helps in alleviating the pain and allergic symptoms that trigger asthma. Medications such as diphenhydramine (Benadryl) and cetirizine (Zyrtec) can be helpful in subsiding the allergic reaction back to its normal track, probably lessening breathing difficulties. This increasing demand would eventually have a positive impact on the growth of the antihistamines market.

The impact of climate change is very evident on human health. The changing temperatures and the pattern of rainfall contribute to various vector-borne diseases, which can develop certain symptoms that lead to swelling and itching. This further stimulates the demand for the antihistamine medications, which help in decreasing the effects of inflammation, owing to the growth of the market.

For instance:

In February 2022, TerSera Therapeutics LLC announced the FDA approval for QUZYTTIR as the first and only antihistamine injectable. It is a second-generation H1 antihistamine for the treatment of acute urticarial in children six months of age or above and adults as well.

“Increased availability of over-the-counter antihistamine drugs, as well as increased prevalence of the symptoms related to allergies, is set to propel the sales of antihistamines across the globe,” opines Sabyasachi Ghosh, Associate Vice President at Future Market Insights (FMI).
