Analgesics, often known as painkillers, are medications that are used to treat and alleviate pain. They're utilized when a patient's discomfort is overwhelming. The most often used topical analgesics worldwide are non-opioids, opioids, and compound analgesics (a combination of opioids and non-opioids). The most powerful painkillers are opioid medicines, which are made from opium. They're only provided with a prescription and are typically used to treat moderate to severe pain. Non-opioid drugs, on the other hand, contain acetaminophen rather than opium. NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medicines) are another form of pain reliever.

  • Analgesic Drugs' Side Effects


The COVID-19 epidemic had an influence on the global analgesics industry. The epidemic benefited the market because heightened attention to personal health boosted the purchasing of these treatments. COVID-19 was expected to increase demand for over-the-counter cold and cough treatments, as well as nutritional supplements, which were already in high demand. Moreover, the European Medicines Agency recommends using non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) such ibuprofen and paracetamol at the lowest possible dose possible to treat moderate COVID-19 symptoms. Furthermore, because geriatrics are more susceptible to infection due to weakened immune systems and the lack of a vaccine or treatment, the number of older people infected with COVID-19 was high. As a result, during the epidemic, all of these causes raised the need for analgesics.

By Type:

Due to the widespread use of non-opioid analgesics for pain relief, as well as lower adverse effects and government and private-sector initiatives to promote the use of non-opioids drugs as a painkiller, the non-opioids drugs segment was the leading contributor in 2021 and is expected to remain so throughout the forecast period. Because opioids contain analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic properties, the opioids medications segment is predicted to develop significantly during the forecast period. In addition, the opioid segment is predicted to develop due to an increase in the incidence of chronic diseases like tuberculosis (TB), cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and cancer over the forecast period.

By Route of Administration Type:

Due to the simple administration of analgesics by oral route, which is non-invasive in nature and effective when compared to other routes of administration, the oral administration segment dominated the market in 2020, and this pattern is supposed to go on during the anagesics market gauge period. Furthermore, the expansion of the oral administration segment is fueled by an increase in the number of FDA drug approvals in the United States and developments in pharmaceutical R&D activities. However, due to advancements in healthcare technology and an increase in the number of analgesics medications, the topical administration segment is likely to develop significantly throughout the projection period. Topical analgesics are applied to the skin over sore muscles or joints and massaged or sprayed on.

By Application type

Internal analgesics currently hold a significant market share. They are meant for internal usage and are either swallowed as pills or liquids, or put into the rectum as suppositories.

By Pain Type

Musculoskeletal pain currently accounts for the majority of the global market. An injury to the bones, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, or nerves is the most common cause.

By Drug type

Opioids are the most popular drugs on the market because they are commonly used to treat cancer pain and end-stage diseases that necessitate palliative care.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to compete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brain storming session to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Primary Research

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation.
