ASEAN Dysphagia Diet Thickening Agents Market Expected to Grow at a CAGR of 5.3% through 2032: Persistence Market Research

Dysphagia is a disorder that makes swallowing difficult, due to loss of muscle control. It can 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 can also be caused by oral cancer surgery, brain injury (such as traumatic brain injury), or other medical conditions such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

Moreover, dysphagia is one of the main side effects of prolonged smoking. In 2020, the highest smoking prevalence in the world was reported in the Southeast Asia region at 27.9%. The WHO has estimated that smoking kills about 6 million people each year. Male smoking rate in Asian countries is significantly higher at 35% than the OECD average of 24. This slowly fuels dysphagia through reduced food intake and leads to increased incidence of cancer of the oropharynx. Dysphagia is also prevalent among the elderly population.

In addition, dysphagia treatment and awareness about it has increased, due to practical swallowing problems experienced by dysphagia patients, which is expected to drive the market growth in the future.
