COVID-19 scenario-

1) Due to the global pandemic all over the world, the medical devices manufacturers are majorly focusing on essential medical devices production including ventilators and diagnostics.

2) However, due to the precautionary measures taken by governments in various regions, the supply chain has been hampered. Which may result in shortage of devices in certain locations.

3) Food and Drugs Administration (FDA), on the other hand, shared a COVID-19 guidance with medical device manufacturers to notify the agency about changes that could affect availability of their products.

The opioid market growth is majorly driven by surge in consumption of these drugs to combat pain and rise in geriatric population that are more prone to orthopedic pain. In addition, upsurge in disposable income in developing economies such as India, China, and others contribute to the growth of the market. However, surge in opioid addiction (opioid crisis) across the globe and implementation of stringent government regulation for opioid prescription are the factors anticipated to hamper the market growth. In addition, increase in death rates owing to the overdose of these drugs is a major factor restraining the market growth. For instance, according to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, more than 130 people in the U.S. die daily on overdosing of opioids.

Based on opioid market analysis, the oxycodone segment accounted for 23% of the share in 2018 and is expected to exhibit a prominent growth rate in the near future, owing to its increased intake across the globe for pain management. By application, the pain management segment dominated the opioid market in 2018 and is anticipated to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This is attributed to increase in incidence of migraine, back pain, cancer pain, and others, which in turn fuels the adoption of opioids drugs.

North America accounted for the majority global opioid market share in 2018 and is anticipated to continue this trend during the forecast period. This is attributed to vigorous use and ease of availability of opioid analgesics in this region. However, Asia-Pacific is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period, owing to the presence of key players such as Teva Pharmaceuticals, Janssen Pharmaceuticals, Inc., and others in the region.
