They are used to treat common health problems, such as allergies, constipation, dermatitis, obesity, cold and flu, headaches, heartburn, dental caries, nausea, and musculoskeletal pain.

United States Over the Counter (OTC) Drugs Market Trends and Drivers:

The market is primarily driven by the rising health consciousness among the masses due to the increasing lifestyle-related diseases and rising consumption of junk food.

Along with this, the sudden outbreak of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic has resulted in awareness regarding self-care, eventually escalating the demand for minerals, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and weight-loss OTC drugs.

This, coupled with the rising adoption of OTC drugs due to their cost-effectiveness, easy availability, and the rising trend of self-medication among individuals, is positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, the growing mergers and acquisitions (M&A) between OTC manufacturers, private labels, and e-commerce companies and rising investment in research and development (R&D) activities to incorporate new OTC drugs for various health conditions are further propelling the market growth.

Furthermore, the rising number of retail stores offering OTC products and favorable initiatives undertaken by the US Government to promote the usage of OTC drugs are also creating a positive market outlook across the country.
