Pediatric electrolyte solution, also known as oral rehydration solution, is used to manage excessive body water due to diarrhea and vomiting. The solution comprises salt, water, and sugar, which replace fluids and electrolytes that are lost from the body. It also helps the intestines absorb water to prevent further dehydration. Moreover, increasing worldwide cases of diarrhea is expected to boost the market growth. For instance, according to an article published by the Global Burden of Disease in November 2019, diarrheal disease was the cause of every 10 children’s death in 2017 and more than half a million of the 5.4 million children that died in 2017 died due to diarrheal disease.

The global pediatric electrolyte solution market is estimated to be valued at US$ 987.7 million in 2020 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period (2020-2027).
