A dopamine antagonist, also referred as an anti -dopaminergic or a dopamine receptor antagonist, is a medication that works by blocking dopamine receptors.

It is used in chemotherapy, motion sickness, gastroenteritis, general anaesthetics, opioid analgesics, dizziness, pregnancy, food poisoning, emotional stress, others and implemented in various sectors such as hospital, medical center, clinic, research institutes.

North America was the largest region in the drugs for antiemetics and antinauseants market in 2021. Middle East is expected to be the fastest growing region.

The antiemetics and antinauseants market is driven by the increase in the prevalence rate of cancer.Chemotherapy is one of the most recommended treatment to cure cancer, and chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV) are some of the side effects of the treatment.

Antiemetics can help prevent CINV in about 60% -70% of patients. According to the WHO reports, the incidence of cancer globally has risen to 18.1 million new cases and 9.6 million deaths. According to another report by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 650,000 cancer patients in the USA receive chemotherapy in an outpatient oncology clinic each year. The CINV caused by chemotherapy treatments is cured by using antiemetic and antinauseant drugs like Dolasetron (Anzemet), Ranitidine (Zantac) and other serotonin 5-HT3 receptor types of antagonists. Increase in the incidence of cancer will increase demand for antiemetics and antinauseants, thereby driving revenue for market.
