Market Trends of Global Local Anesthesia Drugs Industry

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Local Anesthesia Drugs Market according to our research experts:

Bupivacaine Expected to Register Significant Growth over the Forecast Period

By drug type, bipuvicane is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. Bupivacaine is a prescription medication used as a local anesthetic to block the nerve impulses that send pain signals to the brain. This injection is used as an anesthetic for local and regional anesthesia for several procedures, such as surgery and diagnostic, therapeutic, and obstetrical procedures. Thus, the growing number of surgeries globally will fuel the demand for bipuvicane in the near future.

Furthermore, several market players are engaged in implementing strategic initiatives, thereby contributing to market growth. For instance, in March 2021, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a supplemental new drug application (sNDA) submitted by Pacira BioSciences Inc. for the expanded use of its Exparel (Bupivacaine Liposome Injectable Suspension) in pediatric patients. Hence, the increasing number of surgeries and product developments is augmenting the demand for bipuvicane, and it is expected to propel the segment's growth over the forecast period.

North America Dominates the Market and Expected to Continue Dominance over the Forecast Period

Within North America, the US holds the major share of the market. This can be attributed to the increasing number of surgeries, the rising aging population suffering from chronic conditions, the growing use of local anesthetics in post-operative pain, and advancements in anesthesia administration. For instance, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), in 2020, about 768,000 total cosmetic procedures were performed in people aged 10-29 years, and 6.1 million total cosmetic procedures were performed among the age group of 40-54-year-olds. These statistics indicate that surgical procedures are constantly increasing in the region, ultimately driving the demand for anesthesia drugs.

Moreover, several market players are also engaged in implementing strategic initiatives, which are contributing to market growth. For instance, in December 2021, Hikma Pharmaceuticals PLC (Hikma) launched Bupivacaine HCl Injection USP through its US affiliate Hikma Pharmaceuticals USA Inc. The company launched 0.25%, 0.5%, and 0.75% in 10 milliliter and 30 milliliter doses.

Such developments coupled with growth in the number of surgeries using anesthesia drugs are anticipated to bolster market growth in the region.
