The global Antacids market is anticipated to grow at a lucrative CAGR of 4.1% and anticipated to reach USD 9.24 Billion by 2029.

Antacids are a category of drugs which has been in the market for several years.

Furthermore, growing awareness about GERD is anticipated to fuel the growth of global antacids market.

Furthermore, the presence of developed economies within the region is fueling the growth of North America antacids market.
