Analgesics Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024

The global analgesics market was worth US$ 44.3 Billion in 2018. Pain currently represents a major global health challenge. Worldwide, it has been estimated that 1 out of every 5 adults suffers from pain and that another 1 in in every 10 adults are diagnosed with chronic pain each year. Analgesics (also known as painkillers or pain relievers) are drugs that are taken to relieve pain. They may be taken to relieve pain that arises from a wide range of conditions, such as appendicitis, surgery, infection, headaches, mensuration, cancer, pain syndromes, sprains, strains, toothache, etc. The two major categories of analgesics that are used to treat pain include Opioids and NSAIDs. Majority of the analgesics are taken orally. They may, however, also be taken through other delivery routes such as parenteral, topical, transdermal, rectal, etc.

The global analgesics market is expected to exhibit moderate growth over the next five years. A major factor catalyzing this demand is the strong growth in the geriatric population. In 2017, between 950 Million-1000 Million people were over the age of 60. We expect these numbers to reach 2100 Million by 2050 accounting for 21% of the total global population. The rising older population is expected to increase the incidence of pain arising from a number of chronic and lifestyle diseases. The market for analgesics is also expected to be catalyzed by a strong drug pipeline and high unmet needs. We expect a number of new drugs to be launched in the coming years. Other major factors catalyzing the analgesics market include changing lifestyles, rising prevalence of obesity and overweight, rising prevalence of chronic diseases, etc. Looking forward, the global analgesics market is expected to reach a revenue of US$ 56.8 Billion by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of around 4% during 2019-2024.
