The global anti-inflammatory drugs market constitutes various products such as oral and parenteral corticosteroids, NSAIDs, anti-inflammatory biologics, and immunosuppressants that are used for the treatment of inflammatory diseases including arthritis, spondylitis, colitis, and various other related conditions. Anti-inflammatory drugs act by blocking key inflammatory pathways in the body to inhibit inflammation progression and related symptoms. NSAIDs are among the most commonly prescribed anti-inflammatory medications and are available as prescription medicines as well as over-the-counter formulations. Biologics such as TNF inhibitors have revolutionized the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune disorders.
The global Anti-Inflammatory Drugs Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 102248.44 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.6% over the forecast period from 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
The rising prevalence of inflammatory diseases due to growing geriatric population and changing lifestyle factors is expected to drive the demand for anti-inflammatory drugs over the forecast period. It is estimated that by 2040, over 1.5 billion people will suffer from some form of arthritis globally. Moreover, factors such as increasing consumption of alcohol, tobacco, fast food, and physical inactivity have contributed significantly to the rising incidence of inflammatory diseases in recent years. This presents a lucrative growth opportunity for anti-inflammatory drug manufacturers.
The growing preference for biologics and targeted therapies over conventional drug options also acts as a key driver for the anti-inflammatory drugs market. Biologics have fewer side effects compared to corticosteroids and are highly effective for managing chronic inflammation, prompting more patients and physicians to opt for these newer treatment choices. This trend is expected to positively influence the demand for anti-inflammatory biologics in the coming years.
The anti-inflammatory drugs market can be segmented into corticosteroids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and other drugs. The NSAIDs segment currently dominates the market and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period due to its affordability and easy availability over-the-counter (OTC). NSAIDs like ibuprofen and naproxen sodium are preferred for mild to moderate pain relief and are also effective in reducing inflammation and fever.
Political: Government agencies regularly monitor the safety and efficacy of anti-inflammatory drugs. Changes in healthcare policies and regulations can impact market dynamics.
Economic: Rising disposable incomes in developing nations are increasing healthcare expenditure and boosting market growth. However, pricing pressures and patent expiries are challenges.
Social: Growing geriatric population and increasing awareness about arthritis and other inflammatory conditions are driving demand. However, concerns remain regarding side effects of long-term usage.
