Viberzi (eluxadoline) assists in controlling bowel contractions thus containing diarrhea, whereas Xifaxan (rifaximin) is an antibiotic that treats diarrhea by altering the gut flora. Xifaxan had been used off label for treating IBS-D, thus direct approval for treating IBS-D will lead to growth in demand for Xifaxan during the forecast period. Drugs such as loperamide will experience a slack in demand due to the introduction of the said novel drugs.

Geographically, North America is the largest market for IBS-D drugs. Higher awareness about the disease, expected prompt availability of the newly approved drugs, better reimbursement system, and higher IBS prevalence are the prime factors that drive the IBS-D drugs market in North America. On the other hand, Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market for IBS-D drugs. It is estimated that the Asia Pacific market will progress at a CAGR of approximately 17% during the forecast period 2016-2022. Japan with its largest pool of geriatric population and with the anticipated approval for Xifaxan in 2018 makes the country the largest national market in the Asia Pacific region. In addition, it is also estimated that due to factors such as moderate purchasing power in the patient population, lower diagnosis rates, and poor disease awareness will contribute to sustained demand for OTC IBS-D drugs in the region. Regions such as Latin America and MENA are believed to follow the trends in Europe and North America market.
