US Back Pain Market Approaches $23 Billion in 2018 - Anticipated Long-Acting, Abuse-Resistant Opioids Drive Value
Date:3/23/2009

SAN FRANCISCO, March 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The US back pain market for drug treatment will be valued at almost $23 billion in 2018, according to US Back Pain, a report released today by WWMR, Inc. Growth in this market will be driven largely by the opioid agonist products that are currently in development. Many of these are long-acting, abuse-resistant formulations that are highly anticipated in the clinical community. If pipeline products deliver on efficacy and safety, uptake is likely to be considerable and at premium prices.

In 2008 an estimated 91 million people in the US suffered from either acute, chronic neuropathic or chronic non-neuropathic back pain, including pain in the neck/upper back or lower back. In the report WWMR provides prevalent US patient pool estimates (2008) and projections (2013 and 2018) for each of these five types of back pain.

WWMR also provides market value estimates for 2008 and projections to 2018 by drug class, which takes into consideration the five major causes of back pain: mechanical disorders; rheumatic disorders; spinal metabolic disorders; spinals tumors; and failed back surgery (post-laminectomy) syndrome. Interviews with primary care physicians and pain clinicians, as well as data from WWMR's US Pain Clinic Monitor provide additional perspective on the back pain market. WWMR's US Pain Clinic Monitor is an audit of mo
