Opioids Market To Reach USD 29.6 Billion By 2032 Report By DataHorizzon Research

It is anticipated that the demand for the opioid will experience an upswing over the projected period, owing to the significant expansion of the market.

Fort Collins, Colorado, Feb. 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Opioids Market was valued at USD 23.4 Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach USD 29.6 Billion by 2032 at a CAGR of 2.5%.

Opioids are medications that target the nervous system to ease pain, commonly prescribed for moderate to severe chronic illnesses. They are particularly useful in managing pain among cancer patients and those with terminal illnesses. The market for opioids is expected to expand due to several factors, such as an increase in orthopedic diseases, a rise in chronic illnesses such as cancer, and a growth in disposable income. The surge in the geriatric population is also expected to contribute to this growth.

As people live longer, the elderly population grows. This is due to a decrease in fertility and mortality rates. Unfortunately, chronic pain tends to worsen with age, and it is most severe in individuals aged 65 and older. Consequently, it is projected that there will be an increased demand for opioid medications to manage chronic pain as the geriatric population expands. As a result, the market is expected to grow even more during the forecast period, thanks to the rising geriatric population.

Numerous laws have been put in place by the government to manage the use of opioids in a responsible and regulated manner, preventing their misuse. The prescription and dosage of opioids for different medical conditions have been clearly defined, and any violation of these regulations will result in strict legal action. Doctors primarily prescribe opioids to alleviate moderate to severe pain resulting from injuries. Although they may be used to treat diarrhea and cough, these medications are typically available only with a prescription. Commonly prescribed opioid drugs include oxycodone, morphine, hydrocodone, codeine, methadone, fentanyl, and others. Some opioid medications are used to manage severe pain in cancer patients and chronic pain in individuals with terminal illnesses.
