GBI Research's latest report, "Opioids Overview to 2021 - An Assessment of Pain Management and Dependence" discusses the use of opioids as potent analgesics for the treatment of cancer and non-cancer pain and examines the management of opioid dependence in the US, the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Australia, Japan, India and China.

Analysis pertaining to the prescribed opioid users, treatment patterns, and market revenues confirms that the use of weak opioids has fallen dramatically in most markets, while the use of strong opioids has increased. The total market size in the countries covered in this report was $15.7 billion in 2014, of which the US accounted for the highest share, followed by Japan and Germany. The global prevalence of chronic pain was 20-30% in the same year, although most of the prevalence population received inadequate treatment due to the high potential for opioid abuse or misuse.

The report also discusses each country's regulatory restrictions, as well as the treatments available for opioid dependence such as withdrawal management, maintenance, and psychosocial support. In addition, it examines dependence treatment settings, trends, and patient referral pathways. Patient access and cost of treatment remain the key barriers to effectively managing opioid dependence in most countries.

  • Which areas need to be improved to address the unmet need in opioid dependence treatment?

Key Reasons to Purchase

This report will allow you to -

  • Identify users of prescribed opioids and associated revenues through 2021, as well as key pain management trends and the most frequently used opioids in the analyzed countries.
  • Determine the drivers and restraints for opioid use in each country, examine patient/prescriber reasons for reluctance to use opioids for pain relief, and the initiatives being taken or recommended to facilitate appropriate use.
  • Gain an understanding of the narcotic guidelines and regulations specific to each country, and determine the prescribing authorities and licenses required to posses/prescribe controlled drugs, the maximum length of time for which an opioid can be prescribed, and recent amendments.
  • Analyze substance abuse and dependence trends, prescribing authorities, treatment usage patterns, and government funding for opioid dependence by examining the percentage of people receiving treatment for opioid misuse, the percentage of dependents receiving treatment, and usage trends associated with medications.
