The global over-the-counter pain medication market is anticipated to have rapid expansion over the next ten years, reaching a valuation of US$ 35,090.10 million by 2034. A growing number of people in their senior years and a growing consumer desire for safer pain management options are expected to accelerate this upward trend.

In an effort to spend less overall on over-the-counter (OTC) or non-prescription painkillers, many customers are switching to generic medications. Several regulatory agencies, including the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), have imposed strict guidelines and labeling requirements to guarantee the efficacy and safety of over-the-counter painkillers.

According to the FMI report, demand for acetaminophen will stay strong in the future years due to its reputation as a safer pain reliever than other medications.

A recent study on the abuse of over-the-counter combination medications containing acetaminophen was released by the American trade body Consumer Healthcare medications body (CHPA). According to the study, exposures related to therapeutic abuse of over-the-counter combo medications including acetaminophen decreased by 28%.
