Throat Lozenges Market Statistics 2028 -

A throat lozenge, also known as troche, cachou cough drop, or cough sweet, is a small, medicated tablet that is intended to slowly dissolve in the mouth. It helps stop cough by lubricating and soothing irritated throat tissues. In addition, it helps soothe a sore throat or strep throat. Throat lozenges may contain eucalyptus oil or benzocaine, an anesthetic. However, non-menthol throat lozenges have either pectin or zinc gluconate glycine as an oral demulcent. Several brands of throat lozenges contain dextromethorphan. The key purpose of throat lozenges is to calm the throat irritating that occurs while breathing, swallowing, or drinking certain fluids.


COVID-19 Impact Analysis

COVID-19 is an infectious disease that originated in the Hubei province of the Wuhan city in China in late December. The highly contagious disease, caused by a virus, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is transmitted from human to human. Since the outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to almost 213 countries around the globe with the World Health Organization declaring it a public health emergency on March 11, 2020.

Pharmaceutical and biotech companies together with governments around the globe are working to address the COVID-19 outbreak, from supporting the development of vaccines to planning for medicine supply chain challenges. Currently, around 115 vaccine candidates and 155 molecules are in the R&D pipeline. Moreover, commonly used drugs such as hydroxychloroquine have witnessed a dramatic surge in demand for the management of COVID-19. Such high demand for these drugs has presented huge opportunities for manufacturers of COVID-19 management drugs, as many developed countries are facing a shortage of these drugs. Thus, the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries are expected to witness significant growth in the future, owing to the demand for vaccines and treatment drugs for COVID-19. This, in turn, is expected to have a significant impact on the throat lozenges market.

Top Impacting Factors

The growth of the throat lozenges market is expected to be driven by increase in the geriatric population. This population is always at a higher risk of developing infections due to low immunity. The most common types of infections can induce a cough or sore throat. Throat lozenges help relieve these symptoms.

In addition, cold and cough is a common disease across the world, and throat lozenges are often considered as the first-line treatment of cough and cold. Hence, this serves as one of the key factors that drive the growth of the throat lozenges market.

Increase in number of HIV patients leads to market growth, as HIV patients are always at a higher risk of throat infections. In addition, changes in dietary habits and a sedentary lifestyle fuel market growth, as they lead to a decreased immunity.

However, throat lozenges only offer short-term relief and need to be used several times of the day. This is one of the factors that can impede the throat lozenges market growth.
