Opioids refer to drugs utilized for controlling persistent and intense pain among patients who are suffering from chronic headaches and backaches. They can be categorized into numerous product types, such as codeine, fentanyl, methadone oxycodone, morphine, hydrocodone, etc., which can be administered into the vein via an intravenous (IV) injection or taken through oral and transdermal routes. These opioids interact with proteins in the brain, gut, spinal cord, and other parts of the body to obstruct pain signals and mask discomfort, thereby offering a sense of relief. Consequently, they are extensively used in hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare establishments across countries.

The global opioids market reached a value of US$ 20.4 Billion in 2021. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 24.9 Billion by 2027, exhibiting at a CAGR of 3.3% during 2022-2027.

Opioids Market Trends:

The elevating prevalence of cancer, on account of the excessive consumption of alcohol and tobacco, is among the key factors driving the opioids market. In addition to this, the expanding geriatric population and the increasing number of individuals undergoing surgical interventions across the globe are also positively influencing the market growth. Moreover, the growing participation of children in physical activities and professional sports that has led to an increase in the incidents of severe injuries and the shifting preferences toward effective painkillers that help reduce post-surgical pain, facilitate speedy recovery, and lower the chances of complications, including pneumonia and blood clots are acting as another significant growth-inducing factor. Apart from this, the inflating investments by various leading market players in research and development (R&D) activities to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the drugs in several new diseases are expected to bolster the opioids market over the forecasted period.
