General Anesthesia Drugs Market Statistics - 2031

The global general anesthesia drugs market size was valued at $5.4 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $7.7 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 3.5% from 2022 to 2031. The general anesthesia drug is the induction and maintenance of state of unconsciousness with the absence of pain sensation. It is basically induced state of unconsciousness accompanied by partial or complete loss of protective reflexes. It is administered in combination with medication through intravenous or inhalation route. Propofol, etiomide, ketamine are some intravenous general anesthetic drugs and sevoflurane desflurane are inhalation anesthesia drugs. General anesthesia is used in various cardiac surgeries, hip and knee replacement surgeries, cancer surgeries, and gastro-intestinal surgeries.

The growth of the global general anesthesia drugs market share is majorly driven by increase in prevalence of chronic disease such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, osteoarthritis; rise in demand for inhalation anesthesia; increase in funding from private & government organizations for development of pharmaceutical manufacturing segments; and rise in R&D activities for formulation of general anesthesia drug. In addition, according to World Health Organization, in 2022, it was reported that cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death, across the globe. Patients with coronary heart disease, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, are more prone to open heart surgery procedure. The open heart surgery is conducted under general anesthesia. This factor propels the growth of the market.

Furthermore, increase in number of approval for general anesthesia drug drives growth of the market. For instance, in September 2020, U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the approval for propofol injectable emulsion. It is a general intravenous anesthesia and sedation drugs, used before surgical procedure.  In addition, increase in number of surgical procedure is anticipated to contribute toward growth of the general anesthesia drugs market. According to the Canadian Joint Replacement Registry (CJRR), it was reported that more than 75,000 knee replacement and 63,000 hip replacement surgeries were performed in Canada from 2019 to 2020.  Moreover, increase in prevalence of geriatric population, who are more susceptible to chronic diseases, due to hormonal change and aging effect propel the growth of the market. According to the Interactive cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, in April 2022, it was reported that around 227,442 population above 70 years undergo cardiovascular procedure.

Furthermore, R&D activities in the pharmaceutical industry to formulate novel general anesthesia drug is expected to provide remunerative opportunities for expansion of the global general anesthesia drugs market during the general anesthesia drugs market forecast period. Moreover, presence of key manufacturing companies to manufacture and distribute general anesthesia drugs products and rise in expenditure on healthcare products propel the growth of the general anesthesia drugs market. For instance, in April 2020, Hikma pharmaceutical Plc, a pharmaceutical company, announced the launch of vecuronium Bromide for Injection, which is a new general anesthesia drug. Initiatives taken by government and private organizations to develop pharmaceutical industry propel the growth of the market. However, the side effect associated with general surgery such as nausea, vomiting, and allergy reaction, is expected to restrict the general anesthesia drugs market growth during the forecast period.
