Cough is a prevalent symptom of various upper and lower respiratory tract infections. It is a reflex response to mechanical, chemical, or inflammatory irritation of the tracheobronchial tree, which is conveyed by sensory neurons in the airways reflexly through neurons present in the brainstem. Antitussives, also known as cough suppressants, are widely used to relieve the symptoms of cough. The cough suppressant works by reducing the activity of cough reflex and suppresses the urge to cough. Dextromethorphan and Codeine are the two most common cough suppressant drugs widely used in the treatment of cough.


The cough suppressants market has shown a significant evolution over the forecast period. The rise of the cough suppressants market is majorly driven by the vulnerable indoor and outdoor allergens and improvement in treatment. High cases of cough hypersensitivity syndrome associated with Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) also act as a positive indicator for the rise in market growth. Moreover, according to the data published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information in 2014, cough is the most common reason for visits to primary care physicians globally, accounting for around 8% of all consultations. According to the same source, the annual prevalence of cough in the general population is approximately 10-33% globally. However, some stringent regulations against cough suppressant drugs are expected to hinder the global cough suppressants market growth during the forecast period. For instance, in January 2020, the FDA introduced a regulation that inhibits the use of codeine-based cough suppressant drugs in children less than 18 years of age.
