BlueWeave Consulting, a leading strategic consulting and market research firm, in its recent study, estimated United States dry mouth relief consumption market size to grow at a steady CAGR of 7.04% during the forecast period between 2023 and 2029. Major growth drivers for the United States dry mouth relief consumption market include an increasing occurrence of dry mouth and its related ailments like Sjogren’s syndrome. The causes of dry mouth are receiving increased recognition, and there is a growing awareness about them. The adverse effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy are becoming more pronounced in terms of inducing dry mouth. The market for dry mouth relief products has witnessed further boost due to an increasing need for mouthwashes, sugar-free chewing gums, saliva substitute gels, and dry mouth-specific lozenges. This surge in demand has had a favorable impact on the overall growth of the market. Another notable factor, the rising consumption of dehydrating beverages like caffeinated and alcoholic drinks has emerged as a prominent driver for market expansion. Also, there is a rise in the prevalence of dry mouth among the elderly population. The United States has a large aging population, and older individuals are more likely to experience dry mouth due to factors such as medication use and medical conditions. As the population ages, the demand for dry mouth relief products is expected to rise during the forecast period. However, inadequate insurance coverage for dry mouth relief products and high cost of dry mouth relief products are anticipated to restrain the growth of overall market during the period in analysis.
United States Dry Mouth Relief Consumption Market– Overview
Dry mouth, known as xerostomia or hyposalivation, refers to a condition characterized by insufficient salivary gland function, resulting in a dry sensation in the mouth. Common symptoms include reduced saliva production, mouth dryness, frequent thirst, and halitosis (bad breath). Dehydration is a prevalent cause of dry mouth, although it frequently arises as a side effect of medications such as antihypertensives, antidepressants, antipsychotics, antispasmodics, and sedatives. Medical professionals often prescribe drugs like pilocarpine (Salagen), cevimeline (Evoxac), amifostine (Ethyol), as well as saliva substitutes or stimulants like Aquoral, Caphosol, and NeutraSal to stimulate saliva secretion and alleviate dry mouth. Additionally, there are several home remedies that can provide relief. Maintaining improved oral hygiene, increasing water consumption, and avoiding caffeine and alcohol, which contribute to dehydration, are effective strategies in managing this condition.
