Oral Rehydration Salts are the mixture of electrolytes (salts) and carbohydrates (in the form of sugar) which are dissolved in the water. Such salts are recommended for the remedial of dehydration or water loss and salts inside the body caused by diarrhoea, vomiting, or gastroenteritis.
The rising prevalence of diarrhea and the increasing population of children below 5 years are the factors augmenting the demand for oral rehydration salts in the global market. Such salts are available in the form of tablets, liquid, or powder and are vented by key players across the globe. According to the report of WHO, each year nearly 500,000 children suffer from diarrhea and 1.7 billion cases of diarrhea was recorded every year. Diarrhea is the second leading cause of death among children below the age of five. The rise of such cases is augmenting the demand for oral rehydration salts during the forecast period. Zinc and oral rehydration salts (ORS) have been endorsed by the UNICEF and WHO as the prime treatment and preventive method for curing diarrhea among children. Economies like India initiated a community awareness campaign on hygiene and the promotion of ORS and Zinc therapy was conducted which covers nearly 120 million children below 5 years across the nation.
However, preference for homemade alternatives, and oral rehydration salts (ORS) wastage from the sachet is restraining the global market rise. In addition, unchecked side effects associated with the overconsumption of oral rehydration salts also face a challenge for boosting market growth. Furthermore, newer product innovation in respect of nutrition value & flavor, shelf availability, and building global brand value is expected to boost the global oral rehydration salts market during the forecast period.
