Technological advancements in drug delivery, including improved formulations, are expanding the range of medications that are delivered via suppositories, which further drive pharmaceutical suppositories market growth. Furthermore, government initiatives promoting early diagnosis and the efforts of pharmaceutical companies to educate the public about suppository benefits are enhancing market growth and awareness.
