Topical preparations for pain relief are generally available in the form of liquids, gels, powders, creams, semisolids, emulsions, patches, foams, or aerosols. They are applied on or around the site of pain or inflammation in case of strains, sprains, tendinopathy, muscle aches, and osteoarthritis. They gradually enter the bloodstream and keep the blood levels relatively constant for a certain period. At present, pharmaceutical companies around the world are focusing on developing new routes of drug administration for providing personalized treatments to patients without decreasing the efficacy of topical analgesic or pain-relieving drugs.
Topical Pain Relief Market Trends:
The increasing prevalence of chronic pain on account of diabetic neuropathy, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, and shingles represents one of the significant factors escalating the demand for topical pain relief medications across the globe. Apart from this, the rising number of individuals participating in sports activities is also positively influencing the sales of topical pain relief medications worldwide. Moreover, the growing number of cancer patients is resulting in the increasing sales of topical pain relievers via e-commerce platforms. Furthermore, leading pharmaceutical companies are introducing topical painkillers or analgesics for managing the pain of cancer patients. They are also focusing on the development of medications that simplify treatment and reduce adverse effects. This is anticipated to expand the applications of topical pain relief medications amongst elderly and pediatric populations, as well as individuals who are intolerant to other routes of administration.
