Musculoskeletal Disorders Drugs Market Research, 2032

The global musculoskeletal disorders drugs market size was valued at $83.5 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $126 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 4.2% from 2023 to 2032. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are injuries and disorders that affect the human body's movement or musculoskeletal system, which includes bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves, discs, and blood vessels. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) can affect many different parts of the body, including the upper and lower back, neck, shoulders, and extremities such as the arms, legs, hands, and feet. These disorders can manifest in a variety of ways, such as pain, stiffness, swelling, weakness, and limited range of motion. The symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders include stiff joints, swelling, dull aches, and recurrent pain. Musculoskeletal disorders drugs include a range of medications such as analgesics, corticosteroids, and disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs). These drugs work in different ways to manage pain, inflammation, and other symptoms associated with these conditions. 

Musculoskeletal Disorders Drugs Market

“The musculoskeletal disorder drugs market was decreased during the lockdown period owing to decline in sales of musculoskeletal disorder drugs such as analgesics. In addition, many clinical trials for musculoskeletal disorder drugs had delayed or postponed. This has resulted in a slowdown in the development of new drugs, which ultimately negatively impacted the growth of the musculoskeletal disorders drugs market size.”

Market Dynamics 

Rise in incidences and prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders is due to various factors, such as aging population, sedentary lifestyles, obesity, and a higher incidence of work-related injuries. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 1.71 billion people have musculoskeletal conditions worldwide in 2022. Thus, rise in prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders has increased the demand for treatment options and support the growth musculoskeletal disorders drugs market share. In addition, increase in awareness among patients about importance of early diagnosis and treatment of MSDs which is driving the demand for musculoskeletal disorder drugs. Rise in product launches for musculoskeletal disorder drugs by various key players across the globe is set to affect the market growth positively. For instance, in May 2020, Teva and Celltrion Healthcare announce the launch of TRUXIMA (rituximab-abbs) injection for rheumatoid arthritis, the only biosimilar to Rituxan (rituximab) available in the U.S.  

The demand for musculoskeletal disorder drugs is not only limited to developed countries but is also being witnessed in the developing countries, such as China, Brazil, and India, which fuel the growth of the musculoskeletal disorders drugs market share. Factor such as increase in awareness toward early diagnosis and treatment further drive the growth of the market. Moreover, increase in promotional activities by manufacturers is expected to fuel their adoption in the near future. 

Furthermore, growing geriatric population is particularly susceptible to musculoskeletal disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. As the number of older adults increases globally, led to increase in demand for musculoskeletal disorder drugs and further drive the musculoskeletal disorders drugs market growth. 

Moreover, improved healthcare expenditure, and surge in demand for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis drugs. Furthermore, the healthcare industry in emerging economies is developing at a significant rate, owing to rise in demand for enhanced healthcare services, and significant investments by government to improve healthcare infrastructure. E-commerce (electronic commerce) has become a vital tool for small and large businesses globally, due to rise in preference of consumers for online shopping over traditional purchasing methods. This is further supports market growth.  

Lack of access to treatment for rheumatoid arthritis is a significant restraining factor for the musculoskeletal disorders drugs market. In emerging countries access to healthcare providers and specialty clinics may be limited. This can make it difficult for patients to receive timely diagnosis and treatment for their musculoskeletal conditions, leading to delays in care and increased risk of disability. 

The global musculoskeletal disorder drugs market experienced a decline in 2020 due to global economic recession led by COVID-19. The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant impact on the musculoskeletal disorders drugs market, as it has disrupted supply chains and caused delays in clinical trials and drug development. The pandemic led to a decrease in patient visits to healthcare providers, which has affected the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders. In addition, the COVID-19 outbreak disrupted the supply chain across various end-user industries like food & beverage, healthcare, and industrial. However, the market is anticipated to witness recovery in 2021, and show stable growth for musculoskeletal disorder drugs market in the coming future. This is attributed to the increase in prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders drugs, wide availability of drugs options, continuous approval of drugs for musculoskeletal drugs.
