    Market Overview:

  • – Opioids are considered as some of the most effective drugs for the management of pain.

Due to an increase in the incidence of medical ailments, the market studied is expected to grow over the forecast period.

Additionally, according to a recent study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine in 2017, it was estimated that 15% to 20% of physician visits in the United States involve an opioid prescription.
  • – Therefore, opioid therapy is the mainstay of orthopedic treatment of patients with moderate to severe pain, and this drives the growth of the opioid market.

    Key Market Trends:

    Strong Agonists are Expected to Hold the Largest Market Share in the Receptor Binding Segment

    In the receptor binding segment of the opioids market, the strong agonist category is expected to have the largest market size. This segment is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.02% in the forecast period. An agonist is a drug that triggers certain receptors in the brain. Methadone (strong) agonist therapy is an effective treatment for addiction to opioid drugs (such as heroin). Strong agonist opioids activate opioid receptors, and after binding tightly, undergo significant conformational changes. Strong agonists include codeine, fentanyl, heroin, hydrocodone, methadone, morphine, and oxycodone. As per the US Department of Health and Human Services and National Institutes of Health, in 2015, 25.4 million Americans adults experienced pain daily. This statistic indicates the importance of pain management and impacts the opioid market positively.

    North America Dominates the Market and is Expected to Continue to Dominate in the Forecast Period

    North America currently dominates the market for opioids and is expected to continue its strong hold for a few more years. Codeine and morphine are the most commonly prescribed opioids for cancer patients to relieve pain. However, illegal use of fentanyl to relieve pain is rising across the United States. Recently, in 2018, despite the escalating trade war between the United States and China, medical and law enforcement officials and politicians tried to stop illegally mailed fentanyl from China to the United States. Some of the major companies in the United States market include Teva, Janssen, Insys, and Mylan. However, some of these companies have been involved in legal actions instituted against them for persuading doctors to influence sales of opioids to boost the market.

    In the past two years, initiatives and campaigns have been initiated under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Federal government to fight the opioid epidemic. Due to these actions, growth of the studied market is expected to steadily slow down over the forecast period.
