The global Non-Opioid Pain Patch Market was valued at US$ 3.7 Bn in 2015, expected to reach US$ 4.9 Bn by 2024, registering a CAGR of 3.3% during 2016-2024.  Non-opioid pain patches offer efficient transdermal drug delivery option for the treatment of various pain conditions for a prolonged period of time. These include highly popular prescription drug classes such as Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), counter-irritant analgesics that block the pain sensation by inhibiting the prostaglandins, especially for nociceptive pain. However, the non-opioid pain patches overcome the systemic side effects, mainly gastrointestinal, associated with these drug classes, through their topical action on pain. The construction of patches is done through different technologies including but not limited to dot – matrix patches, hydrohesive or gel reservoir patches, and yet to be introduced TEPI patches. Several manufacturers are focused in introduction of new and effective drugs by conversion of therapeutics into transdermal patches, especially some natural extract products like capsaicin, menthol, and camphor.

The increasing incidence rate of various pain conditions, especially in the Asia Pacific region, and adoption of transdermal drug delivery method are expected to steer the growth of patch type segment. Several new product launches such as ibuprofen patch are expected to change the dynamics of the global non-opioid pain patch market.
