Top 5 Vendors in the Global Rickets Treatment Market 2019-2023 | Technavio

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Biotechnology–There is a growing preference for OTC drugs as they can be bought without a prescription. Additionally, the increasing penetration of the Internet has led to increased awareness about vitamin deficiencies, which is encouraging people to opt for OTC medicines. This preference for OTC drugs and their high-volume sales is inducing vendors to develop generic and OTC versions of the available drugs rather than developing new drugs for the treatment of rickets. Thus, the availability of therapeutics in the form of OTC drugs is one of the key drivers that will contribute to the growth of the rickets market. Furthermore, this industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by type (vitamin D-related rickets and minerals-related rickets) and geography (Asia, Europe, North America, and ROW).

Competitive vendor landscape

The global rickets treatment market is highly competitive with major vendors such as F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd, Merck KGaA, Novartis AG, Pfizer Inc., and Sanofi., competing based on price, quality, and product/service offerings.

“To gain higher market shares, companies as a key strategy are involved in acquisitions and partnerships along with effective product launches. Leading corporations are aggressively pursuing to enhance their capabilities to gain a competitive edge through joint ventures, MoUs, and agreements or acquisitions,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
