Increasing Prevalence of Chronic Pain to Promote Global Market Share of Narcotics Analgesics

According to a report by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), chronic pain affects an estimated 20% of adults in the United States, which is approximately 50 million people. This rising prevalence of chronic pain is driving the demand for narcotics analgesics. With the increasing number of surgical procedures being performed globally, the demand for pain management medications, including narcotics analgesics, is expected to rise.

Treatment for chronic pain often involves a combination of approaches, including medications, physical therapy, psychological counseling, and lifestyle changes. Narcotics analgesics, also known as opioid analgesics, are commonly used to manage chronic pain, but they come with risks such as addiction, dependence, and overdose. Therefore, their use must be carefully monitored by healthcare professionals.
