There are a large number of people using opioid medication as painkillers. As per the statistics by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, almost 26.4 to 36 million people abused opioid globally in 2012. Due to an increase in the rate of addiction and severe side-effects associated with the prolonged use of opioid medication there has been an increased demand for the use of non-opioid therapeutics. The mode of action of non-opioid medications are analgesic, antipyretic, and anti-inflammatory. These medications decrease the development of pain mediators in the peripheral nervous system by preventing the enzyme cyclooxygenase at the site of injury, which in turn blocks the production of prostaglandins.
The rise in the incidence of pain disorders has increased the demand for different approaches for pain management. In addition, an increase in costs-associated with the treatment and growing number of people with chronic and acute pain are some of the major driving factors for the market growth. Moreover, the growing awareness regarding the side-effects related with frequent opioid use has further boosted the demand for non-opioid medication. A rise in the abuse of opioid medication has also increased the R&D to develop non-opioid medication, which will further fuel the market growth. However, side-effects with prolonged and excessive use of non-opioid medication such as damage to the liver or kidneys can hamper the market growth.
