The length of pain ranges from acute pain for short term to chronic pain for long term. Acute pain is a sudden onset of pain while chronic pain is caused by aged bone & joint conditions, nerve damage, or injury. Pain management involves reducing or treating pain by using a given range of medications. There are several medicines available that provide pain relief through a variety of physiological mechanisms such as targeting nociceptors. 

Rise in geriatric population is the major factor that drives growth of the LATAM pain management market, as aged people are more prone to suffer from joint pain and other chronic conditions. Moreover, surge in prevalence of chronic diseases, such as cancer, diabetic neuropathy, and osteoarthritis propels market growth in Latin America. Furthermore, rise in number of surgical procedures and rise in healthcare expenditure are expected to fuel growth of the LATAM pain management drugs market. However, drug exploitation, patent expiration of prescription pain medication drugs, and availability of substitutes such as pain relief devices restrain the market growth in Latin America.

On the basis of drug class, the market is categorized into nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), anesthetics, anticonvulsants, antimigraine agents, antidepressants, opioids, and nonnarcotic analgesics.

Segment review

By indication, the neuropathic pain segment accounted for a majority of the LATAM pain management drugs market share in 2019, and is expected to exhibit a prominent growth rate during the forecast period. In addition, increase in presence of large patient population is the major factor that increases demand for drugs for this segment. Cancer pain and chronic back pain segments are expected to grow at the highest rate throughout the forecast period, owing to increase in number of surgeries in Latin America and rise in prevalence of chronic diseases that lead to back pain. 

Brazil accounted for majority of the LATAM pain management drugs market share in 2019, and is expected to remain dominant throughout the forecast period. This was attributed to large number of aging population and favorable regulatory conditions. Rise in number of drug abuse cases and addictive nature of opioids has decreased use of prescriptions for opioids in the region, leading to decline in opioid consumption for pain management. On the other hand, Argentina is expected to experience highest growth rate during the forecast period, mainly attributable to presence of larger patient pool and increase in healthcare expenditure in the region.
