Pune, India, Jan 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Pune, India, Jan. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global opioid use disorder market is expected to experience exponential growth by reaching USD 4.87 billion by 2027 while exhibiting a CAGR of 8.7% between 2020 and 2027.

Increasing Government Focus to Create Awareness to Promote Growth

In 2017, the United States Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) declared the opioid crisis as a public health emergency. Since then, the government of several countries have actively focused on creating awareness regarding opioid use disorder treatments for the patients suffering from opioid dependency. Nowadays, buprenorphine treatment patches are adopted extensively that aid in significant reduction of pain and can be self-administered by the patient. These factors are likely to boost the global opioid use disorder market growth in the forthcoming years.

Buprenorphine Segment Held 81.1% Market Share in 2019

The buprenorphine segment, based on drug class, is expected to showcase considerable growth backed by the growing adoption of drugs that contain buprenorphine in developed countries such as the United States and France. The segment held a market share of about 81.1% in 2019.

Increasing Focus on COVID-19 Patients to Hamper Market Growth Prospects

The global pandemic has led to a massive shift in the healthcare sector. More precedence has been given to treating COVID-19 patients while other non-COVID procedures have either been halted or postponed. This is likely to hamper the growth prospects of the market. In 2018, around 128 people died due to opioid overdose and the novel coronavirus has brought forth several challenges to treat the disorder. To mitigate the adverse effect, the governments are taking efforts to address the issues of the people suffering from the disorder. Therefore, the introduction of telehealth treatment is expected to favor the market growth in the forthcoming years.

North America to Remain at Forefront; Increasing Number of Patients Suffering from Opioid Dependency to Aid Growth

On the other hand, Europe is expected to hold the second position in the market in the forthcoming years. This is ascribable to the increasing number of launches of opioid use disorder treatment solutions in the region between 2020 and 2027.
