Naloxone spray refers to a substance that binds to opioid receptors and inhibits or reverses the actions of other opioids.Giving naloxone quickly undoes the effects of opioid medications, returning breathing to normal.

The main types of dosages involved in the naloxone spray include 2 mg/actuation and 4 mg actuation. 2 mg/actuation sprays naloxone is equivalent to 1.8 mg naloxone and is used for emergency medication of known or suspected opioid overdose, as demonstrated by respiratory and/or central nervous system depression. The 2mg dose is licensed for use in opioid-dependent individuals who are at risk of severe opioid withdrawal and who live in an environment with a low risk of accidental or purposeful opioid exposure by household contacts. Naloxone sprays are available in various distribution channels such as hospitals, clinics, retail pharmacies, online pharmacies, others.
The increasing prevalence of opioid overdoses is contributing to the growth of the naloxone spray market.Opioids include medicines such as morphine, fentanyl, and tramadol and are used for the treatment of pain.
However, due to their pharmacological effects, their non-medical use, prolonged use, misuse, and use without medical supervision can lead to opioid dependence, cause breathing difficulties, or even lead to death or other health problems. For instance, in February 2021, according to a report published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), opioids were involved in 49,860 overdose deaths (or 70.6% of all drug overdose deaths). According to the WHO, as of 2020, more than 70% of deaths are related to opioids, and of these, 30% of deaths are caused by overdose. As a part of emergency medical treatment, naloxone nasal spray is used to reverse the life-threatening effects of an opiate or opioid overdose. Therefore, the increasing prevalence of opioid overdoses drives the growth of the naloxone spray market.
The increase in product approvals is shaping the naloxone spray market.Major companies manufacturing naloxone sprays are focused on new product approvals to broaden their product portfolios and expand their naloxone spray business.
