The market research analysis categorizes the global antiemetic drugs
market into three major application segments. They are:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Surgery
  • Gastroenteritis


Chemotherapy is a major segment for antiemetic drugs. The treatment of
nausea and vomiting caused due to debilitating side effects of
chemotherapy occupies the major market. This side effect is known as
chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV).

This ever-increasing chemotherapy population need to be treated with
better therapeutics to control emetic sensations, and hence, improved
quality of life. The data estimated that eight out of 10 people are
undergoing chemotherapy encounter with nausea and vomiting as side
effects during the treatment. This increasing need is substantiated with
the impressive pipeline as most of the pipeline molecules are indicated
for CINV. This will fuel the overall market in the forecast period.


Post-operative nausea and vomiting (PONV) is a widespread problem after
surgery. The reasons for PONV include usage of anesthesia and side
effects associated with opioid analgesics. The global antiemetic surgery
treatment market is growing at a high rate compared with other segments,
owing to greater acceptance of surgical procedures in recent years due
to higher technical advancement making the procedures safe and effective.

“The data estimates that four out of five people undergoing surgery
face the issue of PONV. Such high instances of PONV among individuals
undergoing surgeries will fuel the antiemetic drugs market growth,”


Gastroenteritis is an infectious disease causing inflammation of the
gut. It is more common in children than adults and older people. Much of
the pediatric population below five years of age have more than one
episodes of gastroenteritis in a year. The severity of disease ranges
from GI upset for 1-2 days with mild-to-severe diarrhea with emesis.
Many viruses, bacteria, and other microbes are responsible for causing
this disease. Rotavirus and norovirus are the major causative agents.

Though the cost of treatment is not so high when compared with other
diseases, the overall economic burden of the disease is high. As per the
CDC, the global burden of disease is around USD 60 billion, which is
mainly contributed by the loss of productivity and hospitalization
charges along with various other expenses.
