In recent years, non-opioid pain patches have gained huge attention of leading industry players due to the addictive risk and safety concerns of alternative opioid pain analgesics. In addition, governments and regulatory bodies are encouraging non-addictive alternative therapies for acute and chronic pain treatment.

Leading industry players in the non-opioid pain patches market are tapping this opportunity by allocating significant investments towards the R&D of novel transdermal non-opioid pain technologies. Continuous innovation in these novel drugs is expected to drive the non-opioid pain patches market in the decade ahead.

Key manufacturers operating in the market are offering a wide range of products such as lidocaine patches, diclofenac patches, methyl salicylate patches, capsaicin patches, ketoprofen patches, and others. Owing to the non-addictiveness of non-opioid pain therapeutics, there has been increasing demand for non-opioid pain patches, creating opportunity for the growth of the non-opioid pain patches market.

FMI – a well-established name in the market research domain – forecasts that, the non-opioid pain patches market will experience a major upturn post 2025, crossing the US$ 4 Bn mark by 2029.

That being said, the market is likely to witness decline in the near term due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The impact of the pandemic has been prominent in China, where the virus originated, and Europe – Spain, Italy, and France. Consequently, governments in these regions have imposed total lockdowns, leading to logistic nightmares, and gradual exhausting of existing non-opioid pain patches.

“Rising demand for safe and alternative chronic pain therapeutics, and supportive government policies, are anticipated to shape the future of long-term acting transdermal non-opioid analgesic patches.”
