The Atropine Market is expected to promise high growth owing to increasing demand in the Asian market in recent years. Increasing demand from applications including gastrointestinal, ophthalmology, neurology, nephrology, and others are expected to drive the growth of the market.

Atropine is synthesized by reducing phenylalanine. Atropine is used as a medication to treat conditions such as pesticide poisoning and nerve agents. It is mainly utilized during surgeries if the heart rate falls suddenly to anaerobic levels or the patient experiences reduced salivary secretions resulting in dry mouth. It is required in high dosages if the patient is antibiotic-resistant. Atropine in high amounts can cause drowsiness, convulsions, coma, and stupor.

Segment Analysis: 

The atropine market is divided into small segments globally with only a few countries producing it while the others procuring it. The atropine market is oligopolistic in nature. Countries such as the US and China are the leaders in global atropine production. Both the US and China combined are responsible for 67%-69% of the global atropine supply.

Due to the low cost of production, less profit margin, and a relatively leaner demand, the global atropine market experienced negative growth between 2013 and 2017. This led to a shortage of atropine supply globally. Many companies shut down the production of atropine due to losses.

The C2 PHARMA is the leading manufacturer of atropine accounting for approximately 10% of the total market share.
