Some of the other factors propelling growth in this market include rising prevalence of diseases that cause chronic pain, such as cancer, lower back pain arthritis, fibromyalgia and postsurgical pain, interest toward extended-release formulations from the immediate release of opioids, and increasing focus on the abuse-deterrent formulation (ADF) by generic manufacturers.

In addition, in countries such as the United Kingdom, the National Health Service runs various public and privately funded programs for treatment of Opioid use disorder. Moreover, several companies adopt the strategies of merger and acquisition to bolster their market presence in new geographies or add new products and services or both to existing platforms, which helps the industry to grow.
