As life expectancy in the developed world increases and populations age, the incidence and associated morbidity of chronic and acute pain is increasing and placing a higher level of emphasis on pain management as a quality-of-life issue for patients and their families. Responding to this trend, drug developers are increasingly turning to alternative formulations of pain management drugs. Because it has the potential to improve drug therapy compliance, transmucosal immediate release pain management addresses a key healthcare issue – one that is particularly problematic in aging populations and developing economies. We expect this market to experience healthy growth through 2020 as absorbable solid dosage technology is applied to existing drugs, and as similar formulations become an important route of administration for novel pain drugs. Immediate Release Pain Management to 2020 is a comprehensive analysis of this evolving product segment.
