MARKET DRIVERS:

The world is experiencing a significant increase in incidences of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular pain, nerve damage, depression, epilepsy, bone or joint pain, etc. Mainly, the increase in the prevalence of arthritis boosts the growth of the pain management therapeutics market. For instance, about 44.0% (25.7 million) of the 58.5 million adults with doctor-diagnosed arthritis had limitations in their usual activities due to their arthritis. There is an increase in the growth of the market to treat these diseases, which cause severe to moderate pain. Hence, this can be considered the key driving factor. The increase in the geriatric population also helps drive the market. This is due to elderly people being more susceptible to these chronic diseases, difficulty and pain while walking, etc. To treat and relieve them from the pain, they seek pain management therapeutics, which help to boost the market.

Over the forecasting period, the market for pain management drugs is expected to expand as a result of an increase in product approvals and new product launches. For instance, Anglo-French Drugs & Industries Ltd. declared the arrival of AFD-NP, a brand-new medication for the management of mild to severe neuropathic pain, in 2023. Additionally, In June 2022, the FDA approved Alnylam Pharmaceuticals: Amvuttra [vutrisiran], which treats polyneuropathy. The increase in the development of health infrastructure and advancement in the industry helps to boost market growth.

The increase in awareness regarding the high availability of different medications for pain management. The increase in usage and adoption of pain management drugs boost the market growth. Many options are cost-effective and easy to administer, and high awareness about these medications helps to grow the market. The increase in healthcare expenditure, rise in awareness about chronic diseases, and increase in research and development activities positively affect the market. These are the factors that help to increase the growth of the pain management therapeutics market.

The increase in research and development in the pharmaceutical industry regarding opioids helps to boost the market in the forecasting period. Additionally, there is an increase in incidences of cancer patients. Cancer patients suffer from severe pain, and to get relief from the pain, they seek pain management. For instance, according to the World Health Organization, Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for nearly 10 million deaths in 2020. The increase in the use of VR in pain management is also anticipated to boost the market. For instance, a clinical trial is being conducted with HTC Corporation's HTC VIVE VR system to see how well it might reduce acute pain.

MARKET RESTRAINTS:

The strict rules and regulations by government authorities hinder market growth. Additionally, prescription drug abuse is increased, which decreases the market growth. For instance, according to the National Health Statistical Report, Prescription opioid use increased with age before declining among adults aged 65 and over, with the highest prevalence observed among adults aged 45–64 (25.9%). The lack of awareness among patients and healthcare professionals regarding pain management decreases market growth. Furthermore, the high cost associated with pain management to treat various diseases hinders market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the pain management therapeutics market:

The nervous system uses pain as a warning sign when something might not be right. An unpleasant sensation, such as a prick, tingle, sting, burn, or aching, is called pain. The level of pain can vary from acute to chronic. It could be continual or intermittent. There are times when pain is localized and affects one portion of the body. Or it could be more generalized, like the widespread body aches brought on by the flu. Multiple sclerosis, arthritis, and diabetic neuropathy can all lead to pain. Medications, physical treatments, psychological therapies, acupuncture, injections, exercise and others are all methods of pain management. A doctor might suggest a single strategy or a mix of many. Plans for managing pain assist those who have chronic (persistent) pain in feeling better and enhancing their quality of life.

Numerous healthcare facilities are greatly impacted by Covid-19. COVID-19 has had a significant impact on the pain management therapeutics market. The pandemic led to restrictions and lockdowns, resulting in delays or cancelation of elective or non-urgent treatments. Additionally, there were fewer outpatient visits to the hospitals. According to the Indian Journal of Anaesthesia 2020, the pandemic negatively affected pain clinics. The guidelines on anesthesia and intensive care practices by the Indian Society of Anaesthesiologists. The shutdown of pain services due to the lockdown and restrictions by governments has affected chronic pain management. This led to an additional impact on the patient's psychological health. Numerous challenges have emerged during COVID-19 for physicians in treating patients. These problems were in terms of both risk of harm from undertreatment and risks of harm from inappropriate treatment because the interaction between pain medication and the immune system must be considered. Treating patients with chronic pain was difficult as they were not able to visit the hospital because of the pandemic. This led to a negative impact on the market. But post-pandemic, due to no lockdown and restrictions, the market is expected to grow.
