Chronic pain, defined as pain that lasts longer than six months and about 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain that could be mild or agonizing, episodic or continuous, merely inconvenient or totally incapacitating.
The US chronic pain therapy market is expected to experience slow pace of growth in the near future. The major opioids used for medication in chronic pain are Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, Fentanyl, Methadone, Morphine, Hydromorphone and Dihydrocodeine. Compared to other opioids, hydrocodone products, the most commonly prescribed opioid and the most commonly prescribed pharmaceutical products in the United States, are growing at a substantial pace in the overall chronic pain therapy market. In the oxycodone business domain, the expected launch of Egalet 002 in the second quarter of 2015 by the leading player Egalet will change the dynamics of this domain as currently Oxycotin dominates the oxycodone market.
