Codeine is an opioid medication that is commonly used to treat and manage mild to moderate pain, severe discomfort, dry annoying cough, diarrhea, and cold and flu symptoms (when combined with antihistamines and decongestants).

Regional Insights

Due to the high presence of important companies in the area and their approval and introduction of innovative products in the territory, the North American codeine market is projected to keep a leading position in the global codeine market and contribute the largest market share during the forecast period.

Tris Pharma, Inc. got FDA permission and released Tuzistra XR (codeine polistirex and chlorpheniramine polistirex), a prolonged oral suspension, CIII (DEA Schedule III) in the United States in 2015. Tuzistra XR is used to cure and relieve cough and other symptoms caused by upper respiratory allergies or a common cold in individuals over the age of 18.


In the coming years, strict rules in key areas for codeine formulation are projected to be a major factor limiting the global codeine market's growth. In February 2018, Australia's Therapeutic Goods Administration categorized codeine, which was formerly accessible over-the-counter, as a prescription-only pharmaceutical. The reason for this categorization was that long-term usage of codeine-containing medications can lead to addiction.

In 2017, Health Canada suggested banning the sale of non-prescription codeine. Codeine's reclassification as a prescription medicine is projected to stifle its sales and uptake, limiting the global codeine market's growth during the forecast period.
