“The market revenue from drug-delivery technologies in the pain management market is US$1.9billion, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% to reach US$2.6billion by the end of 2012.” [‘Pain Market Outlook Report’ - Business Insights] - Dr Emanuele Sher, Research Advisor, Pain Migraine Team Leader, Eli Lilly & Co - Dr Mark Field, Global Research & Development, Pfizer - Dr Adnan Al-Kaisy, Senior Physician, Pain Management Clinic London - Professor Peter McNaughton, Professor of Pharmacology, University of Cambridge - Professor Praveen Anand, Professor of Clinical Neurology, Imperial College London - Dr Dic Williams, Research Fellow, Pain Therapeutics, Pfizer - Dr John Connell, Leader in Clinical Pharmacodynamics & Project Manager, Icon Development Solutions - Professor Anthony Jones, Professor of Neuro-Rheumatology, University of Manchester - Professor Anthony Dickenson, Specialist in Pain Mechanisms, Professor of Neuro-Pharmacology, UCL - Professor Martin Koltzenburg, Professor Neuro-Physiology, UCL This expected growth rate of 6.5% can be realised by addressing innovation within the industry - where drug-discovery can be developed through the utilisation of novel methods in drug-applications for the management of pain. Speciality Pharma business-models have arisen to catalyse this growth and recent breakthroughs by several companies within the sector - specifically through clinical trials, reflect the realisation of this potential. The next stage for such companies will be to capture niche markets in pain management in order to develop their portfolio of products which include a combination of formulated active entities working through conventional oral administration or in conjunction with novel or improved drug-specific technologies e.g. drug-delivery systems, or drug-specific devices.
