Analgesics: The Evolving Self-Care Market for Pain Relief
Published: October 10, 2017 Content info: 359 Pages
Description

With global sales of $16.5bn in 2016, the combined categories of Systemic analgesics, Topical analgesics and Mouth & dental analgesics grew by 5.0% on the previous year, significantly outpacing the global over-the-counter market (+4.3%). Topicals (+7.4%) continue to outpace systemics (+4.2%), driven by high levels of innovation and low levels of private label competition.

Driving growth are higher-dose NSAIDs despite some reverse-switches and restrictions on pack sizes), new ingredient combinations and fast-acting products. A trend for smaller packs is intended to attract low-income or on-the-go consumers, while TENS and similar devices offer new options for chronic pain.

Despite high growth, the analgesics market faces challenges. Global calls for restrictions on NSAIDs such as diclofenac, owing to risks of cardiovascular events, have led to pack size restrictions and reviews of classification. Other regulatory hurdles include tighter regulations on codeine (e.g. label warnings, smaller pack sizes, etc.), with the ingredient reverse switched in systemic analgesics in several countries such as Australia, Belgium, Canada, Russia and most recently France.
