ASEAN Dysphagia Diet Thickening Agents Market 2022- Upcoming Trends, Growth Drivers to forecast year 2032

Posted by Steve Sharma on June 30th, 2022

With recorded sales worth of US$ 19.9 Mn in 2021, the ASEAN dysphagia diet thickening agents market is expected to experience high growth over the forecast period owing to rising ageing population and increasing number of swallowing disorders in the ASEAN region. The dysphagia diet thickening agents market is estimated to expand at a value CAGR of nearly 5.3% from 2022 to 2032.

Dysphagia is a disorder that makes it hard to swallow, owing to the loss of muscle control. It could be caused by many conditions and diseases that affect the muscles or nerves in the chest, head, abdomen, or neck.

The most common causes are Parkinson’s disease and stroke; however, it may also be caused from oral cancer surgery, brain injury (such as traumatic brain injury), or other medical conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

In addition, dysphagia is one of the major side effects of smoking cigarettes for prolonged durations. In 2020, the highest prevalence of tobacco use in the world was reported in South East Asian region at 27.9%. It has been estimated by WHO that smoking kills around 6 Mn people each year.

The smoking rate for men in Asian countries is significantly higher at 35% than the OECD average of 24. This fuels dysphagia slowly through reduction in food consumption and leads to rising incidence of oropharyngeal cancer. Dysphagia is also prevalent among the elderly population.

Thus, rising prevalence of dysphagia and growing need for dysphagia diets in the elder population are boosting demand growth of dysphagia diet thickening agents. Furthermore, dysphagia treatment and awareness surrounding it has increased, owing to practical swallowing problems encountered by patients suffering from dysphagia, and this is projected to drive market growth going forward.
