Opioids are drugs used to control persistent and severe pain among patients suffering from chronic headaches and backaches. They interact with proteins in the brain, spinal cord, gut, and other parts of the body to block pain signals. They are either extracted from the poppy seeds or synthesized in the laboratory. They are generally available in the form of pills or as lozenges. They can also be administered into the vein via an intravenous (IV) injection or infusion and taken through oral and transdermal routes, wherein active ingredients are delivered across the skin for systemic distribution.

The rising prevalence of cancer on account of excessive tobacco and alcohol consumption and the occurrence of obesity, human papillomavirus (HPV), and multiple sunburns worldwide represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. This can also be attributed to the increasing geriatric population and the growing risk of developing cancer with age.

Moreover, the rising number of individuals undergoing surgical interventions is positively influencing the sales of opioids across the globe as they help control post-surgical pain, speed recovery, and reduce the chances of complications, such as pneumonia and blood clots.

Apart from this, the growing participation of children in professional sports and physical activities has led to an increase in the incidents of severe injuries. This, in confluence with the rising awareness among parents about the physical health of their children, is escalating the demand for opioids to manage severe pain. Furthermore, increasing investments in research and development (R&D) activities to assess the efficacy and safety of opioids in new diseases are projected to drive the market.
