Gabapentin Market Trends



  • Increasing usage as a pain management drug is driving the market growth


The growing use of gabapentin as a painkiller, especially for neuropathic pain, is one of the main factors driving the demand for the medicine. The increasing prevalence of chronic pain problems including diabetic neuropathy, shingles, and spinal cord injuries, which are challenging to treat with traditional opioids, is what is driving this market. The medicine was initially created and prescribed for epilepsy and seizures, but in recent years, the number of doctors who are prescribing gabapentin "off-label" for both acute and chronic pain has increased five-fold. While some prescribe it in addition to opioids, others even prescribe it in instead of them.


The sector is being driven by the rising demand for generic medicine formulations, which are less expensive than name-brand medications. Due to their accessibility and affordability, generic medications are growing in popularity, especially in developing nations with constrained healthcare budgets. Where there is a significant need for accessible healthcare, this trend is anticipated to fuel the market expansion of the gabapentin in the Asia Pacific region.


The market's growth is further fueled by awareness efforts like National Epilepsy Awareness Month in November, which work to raise knowledge and encourage action to comprehend and control the illness. Furthermore, medical professionals prefer to prescribe gabapentin over opioids in order to significantly reduce drug addiction. It is anticipated that this will increase the demand for the medicine.


The market of gabapentin is expanding because to gabapentin's expanding availability in a variety of dosage forms and formulations. It is offered as topical gels and creams, oral capsules, pills, and solutions. To increase the drug's efficacy and safety, manufacturers are also creating novel formulations and delivery systems. Thus, driving the Gabapentin market revenue.


Gabapentin Market Segment Insights


Gabapentin Dosage Form Insights


The Market segments of Gabapentin, based on Dosage Form includes tablet, capsule, and oral solution. The market for gabapentin was dominated by the capsule category in 2022. The quicker mechanism of action and greater acceptance of the dose form are credited with the segment's domination. Additionally, the market is expanding due to the high incidence of prescriptions for capsules and the accessibility of well-known brands in the industry, such Neurontin and Gralise. The most common dosages of these capsules are 100 mg, 300 mg, and 500 mg. Due to its high consumption rate and widespread availability of tablets, the tablet category is anticipated to exhibit a profitable CAGR during the projection period. Major products like Horizant and Neurontin are present, which boosts revenue generating.


Gabapentin Type Insights


The Gabapentin Market segmentation, based on Type, includes generic and branded. Due to low market entry barriers that encouraged more people to enter the market and increased consumer preference for generics, the generic segment had the greatest revenue share in 2022. Zydus Lifesciences got FDA approval in February 2023 for 300 mg and 600 mg gabapentin tablets, suggesting a market with a favorable regulatory environment for generics. However, the company's Indian facility is anticipated to produce the product. The sale of generic versions of the medication is the primary emphasis of major generic producers including Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., and Aurobindo Pharma.


Gabapentin Application Insights


The Market segmentation of Gabapentin, based on Application, includes epilepsy, neuropathic pain, restless legs syndrome, and others. The biggest revenue share was held by the epilepsy segment in 2022, and it is projected that it would continue to dominate during the forecast period. The global rise in the prevalence of active epilepsy, which necessitates ongoing pharmaceutical assistance for seizure treatment, is blamed for the domination. The adoption of gabapentin is anticipated to be hampered in middle- and lower-income countries, where over 80% of the 50 million people who suffer from epilepsy reside and lack access to basic treatments. Due to the increased prevalence of the ailment and the rising acceptance of therapies, the neuropathic pain category is anticipated to experience the quickest CAGR throughout the projection period.

These pharmacies, which do not have the authority to dispense medication, work to lower total costs by encouraging the use of generics.

By Region, the study provides the market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. North America held the biggest market revenue share of gabapentin in 2022, and it is anticipated that it will continue to hold this position during the forecast period. The high incidence of neurological diseases and ailments characterized by persistent discomfort in the area may be to blame for the dominance.
