Based on the wide application range of opioid drugs, this market is categorized as below:

  • Pain Management

  • Cough Suppressant

  • Diarrhea

  • Anesthesia

The World Health Organization stated that, 80% of cancer or AIDS patients and around 67% of patients suffering from pulmonary disease and cardiovascular diseases need medical intervention for relieving pain and this high trend drives the opioid drugs market. The opioid codeine is used as 'gold standard' for cough suppression. However, strict FDA regulation on the usage of opioid drugs in pediatric patients has negative impact on the global opioid drugs market. Opioid drugs are effective for treating chronic diarrhea by lengthening time to pass stool from gut, moreover severe side effects of opioid drug in inducing constipation might hinder the demand for opioid drugs. Opioid drugs are largely used as an anesthetic agent especially in cardiovascular surgical procedures and with increasing number of surgical interventions, the market of opioid drugs is expected to witness major growth.

Based on the drug types, the global market of opioid drugs has been classified as below:

  • Morphine

  • Methadone

  • Codeine

  • Oxycodone

  • Meperidine

  • Fentanyl

  • Other Opioid Drugs

Morphine is enormously used in pain management for treating moderate to severe pain. Rising prevalence of cancer, arthritis, chronic pain and increasing recreational use of morphine are largely driving the global market of opioid drugs; however, the side effects and risks associated with this drug may affect the growth of opioid drugs market. Surging demand for codeine in pain relief and cough suppression fuel the growth of opioid drugs market; nonetheless, strict action against illegal practice of over-the-counter codeine drugs is expected to impact global opioid drugs market over the coming years. Methadone is gaining popularity due to its effective treatment of opioid-addiction by reducing withdrawal symptoms and diminishing cravings thus supporting the market growth. Fentanyl is more potent in terms of treatment of severe pain; the demand of this drug in treating surgical pain and increasing addiction to this drug have driven the global sales of opioids drugs.

Geographically, the global opioid drugs market is cumulative to North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, and Latin America.

North America region is predicted to experience the largest growth due to continuous increasing demand for opioid drugs followed by Europe. The National Institutes of Health has reported that in the year 2015 around 50 million Americans were suffering from severe chronic pain. Such high prevalence of acute and chronic pain acts as the major driver of opioid drugs market in North America. According to the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP), 80% of global opioid drugs are being consumed in the United States; such high consumption rate and the overall increment in retail sales the since last two decades have driven the opioid drugs market in this region. Increasing illicit usage of opioid drugs like heroine fuels the growth of opioid drugs market in terms of commercial aspect. As per the recorded data in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 28,000 deaths were caused in 2014 due to opioid overdose in the United States. To fight against this epidemic, several initiatives have been taken by government to prevent opioid overdose and dependence which is expected to affect the overall growth of opioid drugs market. Europe is expected to experience steady growth as a result of lower non-medical usage of opioids than United States, and strict vigilance of opioid abuse.

Furthermore, rapid development in healthcare expenditure and attention to palliative care for therapy is expected to promote the growth of opioid drugs market in Asia Pacific. Booming market of opioids in China is owing to increasing rate of cancer cases and rising surgical interventions.
