Oxytocin is a hormone that is used to induce labor as well as to control bleeding post-delivery. It is also used to induce breast milk production. However, it is generally not recommended for induced labor unless there is a specific medical reason. Oxytocin is a prescription medication and is not available for sale over the counter.

For Antepartum applications, oxytocin is prescribed for induction of labor in patients with Rh issues, diabetes, preeclampsia. It may also be used at or near term, in cases when the delivery is in the best interests of mother and fetus or when membranes are prematurely ruptured. Oxytocin may also be used as an adjunct therapy for management of incomplete or inevitable abortion. In Postpartum conditions oxytocin is prescribed for uterine contractions during the third stage of labor as well as to control postpartum bleeding or hemorrhage. However, there are many contradictions on the use of oxytocin for Antepartum condition. Some of these include, presence of significant cephalopelvic disproportion or in unfavorable fetal positions among others.

Oxytocin is generally available in the form of 10ml multiple dose vials. The dosage of oxytocin that is required to be administered is determined by the uterine response. Thus dosage is recommended to be individualized. This is done by initiating administration of oxytocin at a very low level.

Oxytocin Market: Drivers and Restraints

Increasing prevalence of pregnancy complications, increasing age of women child bearing, are some of the key factors that drive the growth of the oxytocin market. Other factors include, rising number of births globally and rising awareness of induced labor and breast feeding. Factors such as frequently changing reimbursement rates, stringent regulations, and high cost of oxytocin drug are some of the factors that hinder the growth of the oxytocin market through the forecast period.

Oxytocin Market: Overview

Oxytocin is primarily used for inducing labor in case of delayed or complex pregnancy. Thus the Antepartum application of the oxytocin drugs holds the maximum share. However, rising number of cases for induced breast milk production through oxytocin will also drive the growth of the market. Hospital pharmacies is the primary distribution channel and accounts for the maximum share in the global market for Oxytocin.

Oxytocin Market: Regional Outlook

Increasing number of births in the APAC regions are the primary drivers of the growth of the oxytocin market globally. This is particularly true for countries such as India and China. However, the growth of the market in the region began to decline owing the ban of oxytocin in countries like India. The ban on Oxytocin was imposed due to the misuse of the drug by hospital staff to reduce the rush and demand for beds in the delivery wards of hospitals. North America is expected to offer lucrative growth opportunity for Oxytocin market owing to the rising demand of the product for conditions like preeclampsia, pregnancy with diabetes, and other similar complications whose prevalence is rising in the region.
