Post-Operative Pain Management Market Overview

The post-operative pain management market is anticipated to reach USD 4,550 Million by 2030 at 6.80% CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2030, reveals the latest Market Research Future (MRFR) report. Post-operative pain is unpleasant and annoying, which, if not treated correctly and on time, can result in chronic pain, which may last for months. Post-operative pain is a common adverse outcome owing to physical distress, prolonged hospital stays, and the growing incidence of readmissions of patients after surgery. Post-operative pain management helps in minimizing patient discomfort, facilitating early mobilization, functional recovery along with preventing acute pain turning into chronic pain. Besides, it also helps to lessen the possibility of pulmonary, cardiac, and neuropathic pain complications, low cost of care, and cut down the risk of thrombosis. 


The pain arising post-surgery due to tissue injury and muscle spasm in a patient requires special attention because such kind of pain is a symptom that indicates a patient’s undiagnosed discomforts after surgery. This acute post-operative pain often tends to transform into chronic pain if not managed properly. Dovepress, a pain research journal, states that around 80% patients in the United States receive the desirable postoperative pain treatment. Enhanced post-operative pain management contributes to a patient’s quick rehabilitation and hence, sooner hospital discharge thereby, reducing medical expenses of the patient. This increases patient’s satisfaction which is expected to contribute largely to the global Post-Operative Pain Management Market expansion. Increasing prevalence of diseases that require surgical attention, like laparoscopic cholecystectomy and rise in the number of patients afflicted with diseases like cancer are other factors impelling the market growth. The rise in necessity of providing effective pain management with minimum side effect is creating immense opportunity for the market key players to invest in research and development activities which are anticipated to positively impact the postoperative pain management market expansion.

Various factors are propelling the post-operative pain management market growth. These factors, as per the new Market Research Future (MRFR) report, include growing incidence of diseases that need surgical treatments, development of novel drugs for quick pain relief, increased R&D activities to develop high-quality post-operative pain management solutions with minimum side effects, increasing prevalence of various chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, renal diseases, cancer, and others, and increase in geriatric population. Additional factors pushing market growth include the increasing number of cancer patients and burgeoning demand for pain control devices and drugs.
