Calcitriol is an active form of vitamin D, which is found in the human body. It is normally produced in the kidneys through the conversion of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol into 25-hydroxyvitamin D-1 a-hydroxylase. Sometimes, the formation of vitamin D in the body is very low compared to the required quantity, which leads to various health conditions, such as Osteoporosis, renal osteodystrophy, etc. To prevent such conditions, vitamin D is taken externally in the form of Calcitriol drug that regulates the normal functioning of the human body. It maintains the calcium level in the body by increasing the absorption of phosphate and calcium in the gastrointestinal tract. Calcitriol is generally used in the treatment of osteoporosis and hypocalcemia. It does not have any side effects like other medicines, but dry-mouth, vomiting, constipation, headache, minor abnormalities in kidney, abdominal pain, nausea, muscle pain, etc. can be observed in the patients.

There are various factors driving the growth of the calcitriol market, which includes the increased prevalence of osteoporosis and other bone-related diseases, increase in renal osteodystrophy, etc. As per the International Osteoporosis Foundation report, annually, osteoporosis cause more than 8.9 million fractures globally and affects around 75 million people in Europe, the U.S., and Japan. Furthermore, growing healthcare facilities and increasing expenditure related to advanced and developing healthcare facilities are also likely to promote the growth of the calcitriol market over the forecast time period. Moreover, the patent expiry of branded drugs, increase in the use of generics, and growth in the investments related to R&D by major market players are expected to create new opportunities in the calcitriol market over the forecast time period. However, the stringent regulatory process and intellectual property rights might inhibit the growth of the calcitriol market over the forecast time period.
