Summary

Table of Contents

Opioids are naturally occurring opiates and synthetic and semi-synthetic drugs that act on opioid receptors in the brain and can cause dependence due to their euphoric effects. Opioids are majorly categorized into natural and synthetic opioids that are used to treat moderate to severe pain caused due to various physical conditions.

Increasing usage of opioids in non-cancer conditions, unregulated prescription by physicians, lack of regulatory policies to curb the abusive consumption, increasing the prevalence of terminal conditions and favorable reimbursement for palliative care in developed countries are some of the factors promoting the growth of the global opioids market. However, chronic side effects, high prices of opioids in developing countries, over the regulated opioid prescription environment in Asia Pacific and limited availability in Asia Pacific, Africa and some parts of Europe are expected to hinder the growth of the opioids market, globally.
