Market Overview

Europe oral rehydration salt (ORS) market size was valued at USD 2,446.08 million in 2018, growing at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period of 2019–2026.

Oral rehydration salt (ORS) is a glucose-based salt solution used in oral rehydration therapy to prevent or treat dehydration from diarrhea in individuals. In many developing countries, diarrhea is one of the most common causes of mortality in infants and the mortality can be reduced to a great extent using ORS.  The prevalence of diarrhea in developed regions such as Europe is continuously decreasing. However, the demand for sports ORS preparations is constantly increasing for retaining and recovering water and salt loss due to heavy exercises.

Moreover, unpredictable immigration in the European countries due to various natural and unsustainable conditions is expected to increase the demand for ORS. For instance, immigrants from developing countries such as Africa and Syria in Europe have almost doubled in 2015. Availability of different dosage forms can fulfill different demands from a variety of consumer. For instance, ORS tablet and liquid are used by sports persons and travelers, as they are more convenient and easier for consumption.
