Opioids are effective for treating and managing pain, but using them frequently can lead to constipation. This can affect comfort, health, and quality of life. According to an article in the BMJ, among people who use opioids for pain relief, constipation affects 52 % of those with advanced cancer and 87 % of those with a terminal illness.

Market Dynamics

The major driving forces used constipation, recent drug approvals and robust pipeline, and rising opioids for chronic pain.

The rising prevalence of opioid-induced constipation is expected to drive market growth.

The rising prevalence of opioid-induced constipation is expected to boost the market. For instance, in a study carried out in Spain with 317 ambulatory patients undergoing treatment with different opioids for chronic pain, whether caused by cancer or not, 94.6% of patients reported at least one symptom of Opioid-induced bowel dysfunction and constipation. The most frequent symptom was constipation (91.6%). Although opioids are highly efficacious for treating acute and chronic pain, they can also cause several significant side effects. One of the most commonly reported side effects of opioid use is opioid-induced constipation. According to the National Institute of Health, 40–80% who were prescribed opioid drugs experienced constipation due to drug consumption. Thus, the increasing prevalence of opioid-induced constipation is driving the market.

The low diagnosis rate and stiff competition from standard laxatives are restraining the market's growth.

The low diagnosis rate is likely to hamper the market. For instance, clinicians lack awareness about opioid-induced constipation in patients on opioid therapy in Spain, one of the major factors hampering the growth of the opioid-induced constipation market. Even if the clinicians are aware, they do not ask patients about constipation. Usually, patients might feel ashamed to disclose their constipation-related symptoms to clinicians. The major restraint hampering the market's growth is the absence of universal diagnostic criteria for opioid-induced constipation.
