Global Drug Overdose Market: Overview

The global drug overdose market is expected to witness decent growth, owing to the rapid rise in taking up of drugs by people in the age group 15-64 years. Drug overdose deaths comprise almost a third and a half of all the drug-related deaths, which are attributable in most cases to opioids. Lifetime prevalence of witnessed overdose among drug users is around 70%.

Drug overdoses can be either accidental or intentional. Such incidents occur when a person takes more dose than what has been medically recommended. However, some people may be more sensitive to particular medications, so the low end of a drug may be dangerous for them; a dose that is still within the range of acceptable medical use could be too much for their bodies to adjust.

Amongst them, around 34 million people took opioids and about 19 million used opiates. Nearly 27 million people suffered from opioid use disorders in 2016.

The cause of a drug overdose is either by intentional misuse or by accidental overuse. Accidental overdoses come from an adult either with impaired mental abilities or young child swallowing a medication left within their grasp. Adults, particularly seniors or people who take many medications, can mistakenly take the wrong dose of a medication or ingest the incorrect medication. Purposeful overdoses are for a desired effect, either to harm oneself or get high.
