What is the Competition Scenario of the Postoperative Pain Market?

The main strategy used by major suppliers of postoperative pain medications for the development of new product lines of pain medications is the collaboration and acquisition of other pharmaceutical companies. As important stakeholders place more attention on the development of abuse-deterrent opioid medications and the introduction of extended-release non-opioid therapies for post-surgery pain, the demand for painkiller pharmaceuticals is rising. Similar to this, increased efforts to identify and commercialize non-narcotic drugs as well as raising public awareness of postoperative pain management are promoting market expansion.
