The growing legalisation of cannabis and favourable government policies is driving the demand for marijuana in different parts of the world. Different research studies have found the potential benefits of cannabis in various treatments, including cancer and neurological disorders, thus increasing its demand in the medical sector. Due to the increasing prevalence of chronic pain, the demand for the product is expected to grow as it helps to relieve pain symptoms with less risk of overdose and side effects as compared to opioids. The growing geriatric population is also expected to contribute to the growth of the medical marijuana market.
Moreover, owing to the rising disposable incomes, the consumers are ready to spend more for recreational purposes. Adults are in favour of some form of legal marijuana usage, and adult-use sales are expected to drive the growth of the industry in regions like the United States and Canada.
The increasing cannabis-related research and development activities and clinical trials, coupled with the rising applications of marijuana in the pharmaceutical sector, are expected to aid the overall industry growth significantly.
