The global opioids market size is estimated to reach USD 34.96 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., exhibiting a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period. Growing geriatric population, coupled with increasing focus on palliative care, is estimated to boost the market. Moreover, increasing number of acquisitions and collaborations by market players is expected to drive growth.
Furthermore, rising prevalence of disease conditions with chronic pain, such as cancer, lower back pain, arthritis, and fibromyalgia is driving the market. Substantial rise in road accidents and trauma, coupled with constantly increasing cases of surgical procedures, is also driving demand for opioid-based pain management solutions.
North America is leading the opioids market with a share of over 56.0% in 2016. One of the major reasons for its dominance is rising geriatric population with terminal conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis. However, opioid abuse in U.S. has been rising at an alarming rate. Overdose of opioids has killed over 28,000 people in 2014 alone. Almost half of those deaths were caused by prescription opioids. Hence, opioid abuse has been declared a "public health emergency" in U.S., and this is likely to limit the growth of opioids in North America.
