Global Opioid Tolerance Treatment Market - Snapshot

Opioids are effective analgesics prescribed to people with chronic cancer and severe pain. These opioids are generally used for short period of time. If these opioids are prescribed or taken for a longer period of time or more frequent daily doses, they create opioid tolerance in patients and hence, analgesia or desired therapeutic response is not received. In such conditions, higher doses of opioids are required to treating patients.

Opioid tolerant patients can be treated with other treatment options for opioid tolerance such as NMDA antagonists and alpha2-adrenoceptor agonists. These drugs provide the required therapeutic response to opioid tolerant patients or to treat opioid tolerance.

  • The global opioid tolerance treatment market was valued at around US $1,500 Mn in 2018. It is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of around 3.5% from 2019 to 2027. The alpha2-adrenoceptor agonists segment dominates the global opioid tolerance treatment market in terms of value and is expected to continue this trend during the forecast period.
  • The opioid tolerance treatment market is expanding at a significant pace due to rise in consumption of opioids for medical & non-medical purposes and rise in number of opioid prescriptions for therapeutic purpose, which leads opioid tolerance if taken for a long duration of time.
