According to the latest report by IMARC Group titled, "Analgesics Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2019-2024", the market reached a value of US$ 44.3 Billion in 2018. Looking forward, the market is expected to reach a value of US$ 56.8 Billion by 2024, exhibiting a CAGR of around 4% during 2019-2024.

Analgesics, also known as pain killers or pain relievers, are drugs created specifically to reduce and treat pain in the body. These drugs act on the central and peripheral nervous systems for relieving pain caused by a wide range of conditions like appendicitis, cancer, fibromyalgia and headaches. They are generally categorized as opioids and NSAIDs (Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Opioids are used for both short- and long-term relief of severe pain, whereas NSAIDs are used for short-term pain relief caused by headache, bruising or arthritis.

A major factor catalyzing the demand for analgesics is the continuous growth in the geriatric population. Due to the rising older people, and the consequent increase in the cases of chronic and lifestyle diseases, there has been a rise in the requirement of pain management drugs. Moreover, the growing number of surgeries and increasing incidence of cardiovascular diseases and arthritis have further fueled the growth of the analgesic market globally. Some of the other factors that are catalyzing the market include the development of innovative drugs, rising awareness of pain-relieving treatments among patients and changing lifestyles.
