Key Market Insights 

Close to 60 abuse deterrent formulation technologies are currently available / under development 
Nearly half of the technologies that we came across are based on the physical / chemical barriers approach; these are followed by the technologies that use agonist / antagonist combinations (11%) and prodrug approach (11%). 

Opioids are presently the primary target drug class for abuse deterrent product development 
Over 75% of technology providers claim to be focused on developing tools to formulate safer and abuse proof versions of prescription pain medication. Other drug classes that represent likely candidates for tamper proofing include central nervous system (CNS) depressants and stimulants.

Over 8,000 patents have been filed / granted, since 2000
Of these, close to 5,000 patents related to abuse deterrent formulations and technologies were filed / granted in the US alone. Other key regions with significant intellectual capital include (in decreasing order of number of patents filed / granted) Australia, Europe, Canada, Mexico and China.

The partnership activity between drug and technology developers is anticipated to increase in the mid long term
Majority of the agreements (24%) established in the past were observed to have been focused on licensing and commercialization of abuse deterrent products. This was followed by agreements signed for the development of abuse deterrent formulations (22%), in the period 2013-2019 (till March). 

North America and Europe are anticipated to capture over 95% of the market share by 2030
The abuse deterrent formulation technologies market is anticipated to witness rapid growth over the next decade. Further, the market for technologies targeting opioids is expected to capture the majority share in the coming years.
