Global Methenamine Hippurate Tablets Market Size

The methenamine hippurate tablets industry refers to the production and sale of methenamine hippurate tablets which are medicines used for the treatment of urinary tract infections (UTIs) that are caused by bacteria. The infection affects any part of the urinary system in human anatomy including the urethra, kidneys, ureters, and bladder. These UTI-treating tablets are also known as methenamine salts. The fraternity is responsible for the research, production, distribution, and sale of methenamine hippurate tablets. Currently, pharmaceutical companies are one of the leading contributors toward the research and development of medicines During the forecast period, the industry is expected to witness steady growth since in the last 3 years, there have been several breakthrough research activities conducted surrounding further application and development of the medication.

The global methenamine hippurate tablets market is projected to grow owing to the increasing female population, which is most prone to contracting UTIs mainly due to the anatomy of the female urinary system. With the growing female population, the chances of more women contracting the disease also increase leading to higher demand in the industry. In addition to this, the infection can also be caused by certain medical conditions like diabetes, kidney stones, and urinary tract abnormality along with some types of birth control agents like diaphragms. These factors are additional contributors to the growth in the target consumer group for the fraternity.

Furthermore, the growing healthcare expenditure observed across the globe is crucial during the forecast period. The healthcare-related expenses are growing due to the increasing demand for healthcare services, the aging population, and the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases. The ongoing research activities directed toward technological advancements also work in the favor of the market size. New technologies and drug delivery systems are crucial aspects of technological growth.

While the growth rate may be steady for the methenamine hippurate tablets industry, it is also expected to encounter certain growth restrictions, especially in terms of rising concerns over the adverse effects of the medicines. Some of the side effects include gastrointestinal disturbances, skin rashes, and allergic reactions. Unless market players can provide medicines with zero unwanted medical impact, the industry may not reach its true potential. Additionally, factors such as limited awareness amongst patients especially in underdeveloped economies, availability of alternative medicines, and patent expiry are other roadblocks against the market growth.

The growing demand for preventive care may provide growth opportunities while the limited availability in developing nations could challenge market growth.

Global Methenamine Hippurate Tablets Market

The global methenamine hippurate tablets market is segmented based on application, type, distribution channel, end-users, and region.

Based on application, the global market segments are healthcare-associated UTIs and uncomplicated UTIs. In 2022, the industry registered the highest growth in the uncomplicated UTIs segment. This is mainly because this type of infection is generally caused by bacteria which can be treated with methenamine hippurate tablets since the bacteria is susceptible to the medicines and can be treated with it alone. However, healthcare-associated UTIs are generally caused by more serious conditions and may be the result of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. In such cases, medical professionals may prescribe the tablet in combination with other antibiotics. In the United States, UTIs are estimated to be responsible for over 8.1 million medical visits every year.

Based on type, the methenamine hippurate tablets industry divisions are 6 tablets/ bottle and 20 tablets/bottle. In 2022, the industry witnessed the highest growth in the 20 tablets/bottle segment since this type of medication is more common in people who may be in need of long-term UTI prophylaxis. Since the number of tablets in this segment is more, the entire treatment plan may be more cost-effective as compared to bottles with a lesser number of tablets. The 6 tablets/bottle segment is more commonly used for patients who require shorter UTI prophylaxis or people who prefer smaller sizes for better portability. The average cost of these tablets with all dosages and packaging sizes combined is around $32 USD per 100 tablets.

Based on distribution channel, the industry divisions are online pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, and retail pharmacy.

North America is expected to lead the global methenamine hippurate tablets market owing to the high awareness rate amongst the population about the benefits of using the medication. Furthermore, the presence of key pharmaceutical industry players who are regularly investing in the development of new methenamine hippurate-based products is expected to work in the favor of the regional industry. In Europe, the growth may be driven by the rising demand for preventive care as well as the growing demand for over-the-counter medications. Africa may not register high CAGR mainly due to a lack of awareness and the absence of adequate medical architecture in the region along with a lack of financial assistance leading to many people not having proper access to medical treatments.
