Regional Outlook

Geographically, the global analgesics market is expected to be dominated by North America due to increasing burden of pain management and adoption of premium-priced opioids. The growing number of surgeries and prevalence of cancer coupled with penetration of effective pain management medications are the other factors expected to fuel the growth of the analgesics market in the region.

By country, the U.S. is expected to be the most lucrative analgesics market followed by China. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 30% of Americans are living with some form of chronic or severe pain. The reimbursement scenario for pain management medications in the U.S. is further expected to fuel the growth of the analgesics market. Higher penetration of analgesics drugs for pain management coupled with higher treatment seeking rate is expected to drive the growth of the U.S. analgesics market over the forecast period. China is expected to be second large market for analgesics due to increasing number of surgical procedures as well as prevalence of cancer and neuropathic pain. Usually, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are used in China for pain management, but from the last decade the adoption of opioids for pain management has increased at a significant rate. Besides, extended efforts are been made by various analgesics manufacturers to increase their market footprints by undergoing collaborations, partnerships, mergers and acquisitions with local analgesics drug manufacturers, e.g., Purdue Pharma L.P. and Mundipharma International extended their opioid product portfolio in China in 2014 and 2018, respectively.

In terms of revenue share, Canada, Germany and France stand at the third, fourth and fifth place, respectively, in the analgesics market. By region, Western Europe is expected to be the second large analgesics market due to high penetration of analgesics for pain management. Asia Pacific is expected to witness fastest CAGR of 8.0% (2018-2028) owing to increasing adoption of advanced pain care drugs, government initiatives to spread awareness and various welfare schemes. Less availability and affordability of high efficacy drugs, such as opioid analgesics, is expected to hamper the growth of analgesics market in Asia Pacific. The Middle East and Africa is the least lucrative analgesics market due to low adoption of pain management medications. Latin America is experiencing a steady growth, but is expected to be less lucrative analgesics market due to undertreatment of pain.
