A rapidly ageing population is driving the need for effective pain management therapies for acute and chronic pain.

The significant recall of Vioxx and Bextra from the market, coupled with the robust demand for pain management therapies, is creating substantial opportunities for novel therapies in the opioid and non-opioid pain management markets. However, there have been no blockbuster drugs to fill the gap created by their exit and non-opioid therapies have extensively available generics.
Despite the lack of major breakthrough therapies, specialty pharma and drug delivery companies have successfully engaged in lifecycle management partnerships to relaunch older therapies in newer formulations.
“Noting the remarkable market potential, several “Big Pharma”, specialty pharmaceutical, and drug delivery companies have been planning for market expansion, thereby driving market growth,” says Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Barath Shankar S.
To sustain this growth momentum, market participants must pay attention to the increasing apprehensions regarding the safety profile of opioid and non-opioid therapies. The escalating regulatory and media scrutiny on opioid therapies have compelled drug companies to address the issue of potential drug abuse.
“The collaborations between pharmaceuticals and drug delivery companies have ensured that next-generation drugs have abuse- and tamper-resistant formulations,” notes Shankar. “Market participants can promote this benefit to not only expand their customer base but also meet the increasingly stringent regulatory norms.”
