Over-the-counter (OTC) drugs are medicines readily available without a prescription provided by a healthcare professional. These drugs are safe, effective, and well-tolerated when the consumer follows the directions of use on the label or as suggested by a physician. OTC drugs are used for treating conditions such as pain, cough, cold, diarrhea, constipation, acne, recurring migraine, and allergies that do not require direct consultation with a doctor. They also include dietary supplements that provide nutrient and non-nutrient chemicals in the human body. As a result, they are widely available in pharmacies, convenience stores, supermarkets, and gas stations.

Over the Counter (OTC) Drugs Market Trends and Drivers:

The global OTC drugs market is primarily driven by the significant growth of the healthcare industry. Governments across various countries are undertaking initiatives to create awareness among the population about using OTC drugs to treat minor health issues.

In addition, OTC drugs also help build a diverse product portfolio for pharmaceutical companies. Furthermore, the recent COVID-19 pandemic outbreak has shifted the importance toward self-care, which is propelling the demand for OTC drugs.

Furthermore, factors such as the rising geriatric population, along with the increasing approvals from regulatory bodies for switching prescription drugs to OTC drugs, are anticipated to facilitate the market growth in the upcoming years.
