The increasing incidence of allergic responses and allergies worldwide is a significant element fueling the market’s expansion for antihistamine medications. Antihistamines are used to treat seasonal allergies, motion sickness, nausea, cold and cough, and anxiety. They are also employed to treat urticaria, a skin allergy. The increase in healthcare spending, which helps to improve its infrastructure, is a crucial element influencing the growth rate of the antihistamine medicine market. The antihistamine medications market will also grow due to growing public and private activities to raise awareness about how to treat diverse allergic reactions. Additionally, the antihistamine medications market will grow due to increased disposable income and changing consumer lifestyles. Along with this, the market’s growth rate will be accelerated by the growing elderly population and the development of novel medication therapies for the treatment of allergic illnesses.

Second-generation antihistamines expected to retain its market dominance during the forecast period

Second-generation antihistamines such as acrivastine, cetirizine, desloratadine, fexofenadine, levocetirizine, and loratadine are preferred as first-line of treatment in diseases such as allergic rhinitis, urticaria, and atopic dermatitis. The key factors assisting the growth of second-generation antihistamines are rising prevalence of allergies, increasing awareness related to early diagnosis & treatment of allergies, and overall development in the treatment technology. However, the main reason for prescribing second-generation antihistamines is there are very few second-generation antihistamines that cross blood-brain barrier and have sedating effect. Cetirizine causes drowsiness that may lead to accidents with people driving car or handling heavy machinery. Thus, levocetirizine is now preferred over cetirizine due to its non-sedating effect. Second-generation antihistamines possess a longer duration of action and plasma half-life compared to first generation drugs, which makes it easy to decrease the number of daily intakes.
