Analgesics, also known as painkillers, are used to treat and reduce pain in the body. Typically, they are used when the pain is severe and becomes unbearable for the patient. Non-opioids, opioids, and compound analgesics (a combination of both opioids and non-opioids) are the major analgesic products used globally. The emergence of analgesics is mainly attributed to the increase in acute and chronic diseases, as well as the rising incidence of cancer worldwide.
Opioid drugs are the strongest types of analgesics, which are derived from opium. They are chiefly used for the treatment of moderate to severe pain and are mostly available through prescription. On the other hand, non-opioid drugs are not derived from opium but include acetaminophen. They also include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and are majorly used for the treatment of mild to moderate pain. In addition, non-opioid drugs are sometimes used alongside stronger painkillers. They are mostly available over-the-counter (OTC); however, some NSAIDs, such as Celebrex, Cataflam, and Motrin, are available through prescription only.
The world analgesics market is expected to achieve moderate growth in the near future, majorly because of factors such as increase in cardiovascular disease, cancer, and arthritis and growing geriatric population. Recurring pain and aches experienced by the ageing population is another factor the helps the market growth. In addition, increasing investments in R&D by the public and private sector, with key emphasis on the classes of compounds for formulating new therapeutics, are further expected to drive the market. However, factors such as uncontrolled prescription of opioids, drug abuse, and unregulated government policies are likely to restrain the growth of the market.
