Non-opioid medications are antipyretic, analgesic, and anti-inflammatory in nature. These medications help decrease the development of pain in the peripheral nervous system by releasing the enzyme cyclooxygenase at the site of injury, which in turn blocks the production of prostaglandins. As per the stats provided by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, almost 25 to 35 million people were abused by opioid globally. Due to rise in the rate of severe side-effects and addiction related to the prolonged use of opioid medication there has been an increased demand for the use of non-opioid therapeutics globally.


Increasing Prevalence of Osteoarthritis

The global rise in osteoarthritis prevalence is driving a growing demand for non-opioid pain treatment patches. Several key factors contribute to this trend:

  1. Ageing Population: The incidence of osteoarthritis increases significantly with age. As the global population continues to age, there is a higher need for effective pain management solutions for older adults.

  2. Joint Injuries: Osteoarthritis often develops following joint injuries from accidents, sports, or repetitive stress. Individuals with joint injuries require effective, non-invasive pain management options.

  3. Obesity: Excess weight places additional stress on weight-bearing joints like the knees and hips, heightening the risk of osteoarthritis. With global obesity rates on the rise, more people are susceptible to this condition.

  4. Repeated Stress on Joints: Occupations and activities involving repetitive joint movements or overuse can lead to osteoarthritis, underscoring the need for accessible pain management solutions for those in physically demanding jobs.

  5. Genetics: A genetic predisposition can make some individuals more likely to develop osteoarthritis.

  6. Metabolic Illnesses: Conditions such as diabetes and hyperlipidemia can contribute to osteoarthritis, highlighting the importance of effective pain management for patients with these comorbidities.

  7. Bone Abnormalities: Congenital or acquired bone deformities can increase the risk of developing osteoarthritis, necessitating specialized pain management solutions.

Osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis, primarily affecting the knees, hips, and hands. These joints are essential for daily mobility and function, making effective pain management crucial for maintaining quality of life. The increasing prevalence of osteoarthritis is thus fueling the demand for non-opioid pain treatment patches, providing a safe and effective means of managing the chronic pain associated with this condition.
