Chronic pain is one of the most common health concerns registered around the world. Due to the debilitating effect of chronic pain, the demand for pain management therapeutics has always remained significantly high. Several methods of pain management such as physiotherapy, chiropractor therapy, and minimally invasive procedures of pain management are easily available to patents.

Pharmaceuticals such as painkillers and analgesics, constitute the initial treatment prescribed by physicians. This encompasses drugs belonging to a combination of therapeutic classes such as anti-migraine agents, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), opioids, antidepressants, anticonvulsants, and others. The report indicates that while demand for pain management is growing, the impending patent expiry of blockbuster drugs will adversely impact the development of the pain management therapeutics market.

Patent expiration of blockbuster drugs such as Lyrica of Pfizer, Inc. and Cymbalta of Eli Lilly & Co. was a major setback for the market. The loss of market exclusivity of blockbuster drugs has drastically reduced the revenue generated in the pain management therapeutics market, thereby creating an opportunity for generic drug manufacturers to rise to the market's forefront. While consumers would hope that leading manufacturers would invest in the production of novel drugs, insufficiency in novel drug discovery will further weaken the growth prospects of the pain management therapeutics market.
