By Drug Type, the global cough suppressant drugs market is segmented into dextromethorphan, codeine, noscapine, butamirate, benzonatate, pholcodine, and others. Codeine and Dextromethorphan are the most common and widely used cough suppressant in the market. However, the changing of safety labels to prevent addiction to Codeine may hinder its market. For instance, in January 2018, the U.S. FDA made safety label changes to limit the use of prescription containing codeine in cough and cold medicines for children younger than 18 years. Consequently, these products will no longer be prescribed for the pediatric population in the treatment of cough. February 2018, the Therapeutic Goods Administration in Australia, relabeled codeine as prescription-only medicine as regular use of codeine-containing medications may lead to its addiction. Previously, it was available as an over-the-counter medication.
North America is the dominant share in the global Cough Suppressant Drugs market, and it is primarily attributed to factors such as various approvals to novel drugs by the FDA. Moreover, its broad base of the patient population and the established healthcare infrastructure and the rising disposable income and higher investment in R&D activities contribute to the growth of North America’s share.
