The global demand for such drugs is very high; in the year 2011, the global pain management therapeutics market had a net worth of US$ 40.93 billion. However, patent expiries of bestselling drugs such as Pfizer, Inc.’s Lyrica (pregabalin) and Eli Lilly & Co.’s Cymbalta (duloxetine) in the near future could lead to a drastic downward trend to the global pain therapeutics market. Declining at a year-on-year rate of 5.5% in the next few years, this market could reach a net worth of US$ 29.47 billion by 2018.

Other than significant reduction in revenues, the loss of market exclusivity of these major revenue-grossing drugs will allow generic drug companies to launch their own versions of these drugs. The global pain management therapeutics market is also affected by the lack of novel drug formulations, which would further account for the declining position of this market.

Other key brands such as Lidoderm (lidocaine), OxyContin (oxycodone), and Cymbalta (duloxetine) are scheduled to lose patent exclusivity in 2013, adding to the negative impact on the growth of the global pain management therapeutics market. However, the market will continue to cater to a large portion of its end users through the segment of OTC drugs, triggered at common body pain conditions.


Amongst the various drug segments covered by the pain management therapeutics market, the segment of NSAIDs is the major revenue generator of the market. Owing to the presence of most popular over the counter painkillers such as ibuprofen, aspirin and diclofenac in this class of drugs, NSAIDs grossed the maximum industry shares of the global pain management therapeutics market in 2011.

By indication, the segments of neuropathic pain and cancer pain earned the leading positions in the global pain management therapeutics market.

As compared to branded formulations, the demand for generic drugs was high in the overall pain management therapeutics market in 2011.

North America stood as the largest regional market of the global pain management therapeutics market due to the presence of one or more branded drugs in the market. However, patent expiries of these brands could suppress growth of this regional market in the near future.
