Naltrexone Market: Rise in alcohol & opioid dependence to drive the market

Naltrexone Market: Introduction

  • Naltrexone is an opioid blocker that acts by preventing the symptoms of opioids from both inside and outside the body. Naltrexone is a drug that is commonly used to treat alcohol or opioid use disorder by reducing cravings and symptoms of euphoria associated with the disorder. A person who is addicted to opioids should not be given naltrexone before detoxification. Naltrexone is administered orally or by injection into a muscle, and its effects are felt within 30 minutes. A reduction in the appetite for opioids, on the other hand, might take a few weeks.

  • According to the World Health Organization (WHO), substance abuse is usage of psychoactive substances, including alcohol and illicit drugs. Use of psychoactive substances could escalate to dependence syndrome (combination of behavioral, cognitive, and psychological phenomenon, which forces an individual to use alcohol, nicotine, and illicit drugs). According to the WHO, in 2016, around 275 million people had utilized drugs at least once in their lifetime. According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, over 6% of the adult population suffered from alcohol use disorder in the U.S. in 2015. Naltrexone, commercialized under several brands such as Revia and Vivitrol, is primarily employed to control opioid or alcohol dependence. However, all drugs are not available in all countries. For instance, the brand formulation of “Revia” had been discontinued in the U.S.; however, the generic Revia has been commercialized in the country.

  • The naltrexone market in Asia Pacific is projected to expand at a rapid pace in next few years. According to the China National Narcotics Control Commission 2015 report, heroin was the most abused drug in China. Therefore, the Government of China initiated various programs to spread awareness about drug addiction and its ill effects on society and personal life. According to a 2016 WHO report, there has been a substantial increase in treatment for abuse of other prescription drugs in Asia Pacific. These factors are likely to augment the naltrexone market in Asia Pacific during the forecast period.
