Growth Insights

Growth of the global market is attributed to factors such as the growing prevalence of cancer, diabetes and other chronic diseases; a strong product regulatory scenario; and strong investment in research and development activities by key market players including Hisamitsu Pharmaceutical Co. Inc., Mylan, Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. and Novartis AG, among others. The increasing incidence of acute and chronic pain and rising geriatric population with osteoporosis-related issues are the major factors likely to fuel major markets for pain management patches.

According to the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016, the high prominence of pain and pain-related diseases is the leading cause of disability and disease burden globally. The burden of chronic pain is likely to drive the market for pain management patches during the forecast period.

Reasons for Doing This Study

Pain associated with chronic diseases is the leading causes of death worldwide. There has been a rise in acute and chronic pain incidence rates among patients suffering from chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, pancreatitis, spine disease, arthritis and autoimmune diseases. The quick implementation of new designs for pain management patches - which overcome pain by supplying an adequate dosage of drugs to the surface of body - by regulatory agencies in recent years is likely to have a profound effect on the market growth of pain management patches.

Pharmaceutical companies pursued new launches for pain treatments, as many of them looked beyond currently available therapies. These new pain management patches, with novel mechanisms of action or improved delivery systems, will provide powerful new alternatives for currently prescribed pain management patches. But despite increasing demand for quick pain recovery, high costs and side effects from opioids are severely impacting the sales revenue of branded pain management patches.

The report is designed to provide the reader with a background on pain management patches and current factors influencing the market, as well as offering decision-makers the tools to make informed choices regarding expansion and penetration in this market.
