Global Motion Sickness Drugs Market: Overview

Availability of over-the-counter (OTC) drugs

The global motion sickness drugs market is predominantly served by the use of generic drugs that are available both as prescription and OTC drugs. Anticholinergics and antihistamines have been regarded as first-line therapy for suppressing and preventing the symptoms associated with motion sickness. Several antihistamines are available as OTC drugs and can be used by pediatric patients. The availability of these medicines OTC increases their accessibility and affordability and provides patients with the freedom of self-medication for the treatment of symptoms associated with minor illnesses. In addition, the availability of OTC drugs reduces the financial burden associated with medication treatment by eliminating the need for a prescription for the purchase of these drugs. This demand for over-the-counter (OTC) will lead to the expansion of the global motion sickness drugs market at a CAGR of almost 4% during the forecast period.

The advent of nauseogenic information technology

The nauseogenic information technology involves the use of nauseogenic vehicles that help in analyzing an individual’s postural stability and can reveal the underlying neural or sensory-motor processes that help in achieving successful body stability. This technology revealed that motion sickness often occurs for a narrow band of frequencies of the imposed oscillation. The frequency band obtained in patients with motion sickness is similar to that produced by postural sway during the natural stance. Further advances in nauseogenic information technology are anticipated to have a positive impact on market growth.
