Over the counter (OTC) drugs & dietary supplements are non-prescription medicines that can be availed from any pharmacy, health store, or via online channel. OTC drugs are not regulated based on the active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) rather than the end product.  Dietary supplements are for those individuals who have a lack of appetite or those who suffer from deficiency disorders, such as vitamin and mineral deficiency, among other deficiency disorders. Hence, OTC drugs have revolutionized the healthcare and pharmaceutical sectors, as several prescription medicines have switched to OTC medicines. This switch from prescription to non-prescription drugs is more convenient for individuals especially in the developing economies for easy accessibility of medicines as per their requirement.

Common ailments, such as cold & cough, allergies, dermal infections, lung diseases, and others have high incidence rates across the globe. Thus, advertisements and endorsements by several OTC drug manufacturing giants have increased for the treatment of related ailments in the recent years. These OTC drugs are cost-effective, and are available in a variety of forms such as powder, tablets, capsules, ointments, and others.

The factors, such as increase in awareness about the advancements in pharmaceutical industry and general health concerns coupled with rising trend among individuals for self-management of medication boost the market growth. However, stringent regulations by FDA and other governing bodies have delayed the drug approval, which further impede the market growth. In addition, lack of seamless reclassification of drugs from prescription to OTC restricts the market growth. Moreover, various key players have undertaken R&D activities to enhance OTC drugs for the treatment of various ailments, such as laxatives, oral antiseptics, analgesics, and anti-smoking products, thereby creating more opportunities for market players.
