Opioid Withdrawal Treatment Market Scenario


The opioid withdrawal treatment market is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period. The market held a market value of USD 1.8 billion in 2020 and is projected to register a CAGR of 9.70% over the forecast period. Opioids are drugs such as heroin, opium, morphine, codeine, and methadone that are used in cases of severe, postsurgical, or chronic pain.


In some cases, usage of opioids causes addiction, and opioid withdrawal syndrome is a life-threatening condition resulting from opioid dependence. These drugs can also cause severe health problems and sometimes even result in overdose and loss of life. Hence this opioid dependence requires treatment, which is known as opioids withdrawal treatment. The rising use of opioids for the management of pain, large healthcare expenditure, and rising chronic disorders is driving the growth of the market. 


Recent FDA approval of first non-opioid treatment for the management of opioid withdrawal symptoms in adults is propelling the opioid withdrawal treatment market.


Additionally, the rising population affected with chronic disorders, along with favorable reimbursement scenarios, is driving the growth of the market. For instance, according to the United Nations, the older population is likely to reach 425 million by 2050. Additionally, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 201, more than 17.7 million people died from cardiovascular diseases contributing to 31% of all the global deaths. This rise in the aging population will lead to a rise in cardiovascular disorders as this population is highly prone to various heart disorders and is at a higher risk of developing complications which are also likely to drive the market.


However, the stringent regulatory scenario is limiting the growth of the market.

The Americas is the market leader and has an attractive market for opioid withdrawal treatment owing to the increasing prevalence of chronic disorders and rising adoption of opioids for the management of pain. Additionally, the rising geriatric population is a major trigger factor that drives the opioid withdrawal treatment market. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention in2016, health care providers across the US wrote more than 214 million prescriptions for opioid pain medication, which is 66.5 prescriptions per 100 people.


Additionally, the CDC stated that drug overdoses claimed the lives of nearly 64,000 Americans in 2016. Nearly two-thirds of these deaths (66%) involved a prescription or illicit opioid. This overuse of opioids is driving the growth of the opioid withdrawal treatment market.


Moreover, according to the US Census Bureau, in 2016, around 49.2 million residents were aged 65 and above. This huge older population led to over 15.2% of the total population, which is likely to drive the market.

Moreover, due to lower cost of clinical trials, research key players have been setting up their regional headquarters and manufacturing plants in Singapore, China, Japan, Korea, and Australia which make a positive growth curve in opioid withdrawal treatment market in future.
