Increasing Demand for Non-Opioids to Augment the Topical Pain Relief Industry Growth

Based on class, the non-opioids segment accounts for a significant share in the topical pain relief industry and is expected to grow rapidly over the forecast period due to the increased preference for non-opioids over opioid drugs to treat mild to moderate pain. Non-opioids are often used to treat acute or persistent pain because they have fewer side effects as compared to opioids and do not cause addiction. While non-opioid drugs are particularly suitable for pain in musculoskeletal conditions, opioid analgesics are considered more suitable for treating moderate to severe pain, especially of visceral origin. The growth of this segment is primarily driven by the increasing awareness pertaining to the negative effects of long-term opioid therapy, which may adversely affect pain sensitivity, widespread concerns about opioid misuse and iatrogenic addiction, and an increase in the prevalence of arthritis and other joint problems.

 

North America to Provide Enhanced Growth Opportunities to the Topical Pain Relief Industry

Region-wise, North America accounts for a significant market share and is expected to witness a robust growth over the forecast period. This is due to the region's early legalisation of topical pain relievers and high acceptance of over-the-counter pain relievers. Moreover, due to the presence of some of the leading industry players in the region, the market is expected to grow in the forecast period.

 

Topical Pain Relief: Market Segmentation

Muscle pains, sprains, and strains are treated with topical painkillers. They can also help in providing relief from painful arthritis. Since topical analgesics have fewer side effects than oral painkillers, they are often prescribed instead of oral painkillers.
