SEATTLE, April 01, 2021, (PHARMIWEB) — Global Diclofenac Patches Market

Diclofenac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), which helps in reducing the effect of hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body. NSAIDs are the most widely used therapeutic class of analgesic compounds, indicated for use in relieving post-extraction pain. Diclofenac sodium is a commonly prescribed NSAID, which exhibits anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-pyretic properties. Transdermal diclofenac patches are used to provide temporary relief from minor aches and pains of the muscle and joints. These patches are found to be more effective as compared to diclofenac tablets, owing to their once-daily application and lesser frequency of systemic adverse effects. Transdermal patches have been developed to offer an innovative drug delivery system for diclofenac, with reduced incidence of systemic adverse effects, due to lower plasma concentrations. Diclofenac patches are designed to treat pain associated with conditions, such as gout, migraine, rheumatoid arthritis, sprains of muscles and joints, and mild-to-moderate fever in some cases.

Moreover, rising prevalence of pain and increasing prevalence of diseases, such as cancer, are supplementing the global market growth. As reported by the National Cancer Institute in 2018, around 1,735,350 new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed in the U.S. in the near future. Additionally, India, China and other Eastern and Central Asian countries accounted for nearly half of the new cancer cases and deaths reported worldwide in 2017.

Growing research developments in the NSAIDs to increase its effectiveness pain management and to extend its application in various areas of medical field, will drive the diclofenac patches market. For instance, a study published in the International Journal of Ophthalmology: April 2018, stated that, application of prophylactic non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in pre- and post-cataract surgery may help to reduce the severity and frequency of the development of cystoid macular edema (CME) in the eyes of diabetic patients. Furthermore, in November 2017, researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad have developed a novel skin patch which releases diclofenac at the target site in a controlled way in such way that, there will be constant release of the drug for as long as 12 hours. In addition, the drug has low half-life of one–two hours and therefor constant release for up to 12 hours offers consistent efficiency of diclofenac for a longer period.
