The authors estimate that the global chronic pain therapeutics market was valued at $18 billion in 2010, and is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7% over the next seven years, to reach $24.9 billion by 2017. This slow growth is primarily attributed to low treatment seeking behavior and disease awareness and the use of generic drugs Need for First-in-Class Drugs

The authors research indicates that the current treatment options are focused on offering relief from the various forms of chronic pain such as lower back pain, osteoarthritis pain, cancer pain, fibromyalgia and others. Although the current market is reasonably well served but the market needs novel therapies offering better results in terms of safety and efficacy. This is likely to fulfill the unmet need of the market. The chronic pain therapeutics pipeline is strong with disease modifying molecules such as Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), N-type calcium blockers, Glial cell regulators and so on in the various phases of clinical development. These products are likely to offer significantly better performance on safety and efficacy parameters.

Changing Future Landscape of the Chronic Pain Therapeutics Market

Pfizer Inc., Grunenthal GmbH, Cephalon Inc., SantoSolve AS, Transdel Pharmaceuticals, WEX Pharmaceuticals, Avanir Pharmaceuticals, Elite Pharmaceuticals, Horizon Therapeutics, Insys Therapeutics and Endo Pharmaceuticals are going to be the key players in future. GlobalData has profiled of all these companies as they hold important pipeline drugs in late stage development for chronic pain.

The existing market landscape remains competitive, because the treatment of chronic pain relies on established, older therapies like non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), opioids, and cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) inhibitors. The market scenario will change after the launch of new disease-modifying therapies such as NGF binders, transient receptor potential vanilloid (TRPV) antagonists, calcium channel blockers, non-peptide neurotoxins, alpha adrenergic receptors, p38 kinase inhibitors, fatty acid amides hydrolase inhibitors, alpha-2 delta ligands, bradykinin (B2) receptor, N-Methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) antagonists, sigma 1 agonists and so on.
