CBD Patches Market Outlook (2023-2033)

The global CBD patches market is expected to reach US$ 124.6 million in 2023 and surge ahead at a CAGR of 18.7% to end up at a market size of US$ 691.9 million by 2033.

The market is still in the growing phase of PLC, which contributes around 12% share of the CBD topical market. However, the revealing benefits and adoption of transdermal drug delivery will uplift the sales of CBD patches over the coming years.

Over the 2018-2022 historical period, the global market for CBD patches registered a CAGR of 23.6%, according to Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider.

The presence of strict regulations against CBD (Cannabidiol) and its products restricted the growth of the market during the historical period to some extent. However, the rising use and benefits of CBD in industries such as food and beverages, recreational, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and personal care boosted the approvals of CBD products. This factor has opened the doors for the sales of CBD patches across regions.

Furthermore, research and survey studies on CBD patches have driven product acceptance in the past years. The emergence of new market players and ease of product availability from the manufacturers’ end has helped create a strong customer base in the market. Subsequently, the sale of CBD patches has observed upward growth.

The market will witness remarkable growth during the forecast period owing to a rise in product awareness and availability in developing and emerging economies. Apart from that, the growing prevalence of patients with anxiety, depression, and chronic pain will provide a substantial pace to market growth over the coming years.

The market will observe high growth in the near term owing to the lack of approvals and CBD acceptance in regions such as Asia Pacific. Additionally, the lack of product manufacturers across developed countries will also slow down product sales in the near future.

Lastly, it is projected that the market will see remarkable growth during the latter part of the forecast period due to growth in the trade of CBD products across the world.

Why is Demand for CBD Patches Surging across the World?

“Mounting Mental Health Issues & Rising Health-Conscious Population Pool’’

The global population is facing the increasing prevalence of various physical as well as mental disease conditions such as acute & chronic pain, anxiety, depression, osteoporosis, etc. For instance, in the U.K. in 2020, around 28 million people were affected by chronic pain (NHS), 6 million suffer from anxiety, and more than 80% of adults observed a high level of stress. In consideration of the aforementioned factor, there are various studies that have proved the anti-inflammatory, anti-seizure, and pain-reliving properties of Cannabidiol. This has helped elevate the acceptance of CBD patches as a reliable solution in many countries.

In addition, more than 30% of U.K. adults and around 50% of people aged 18-34 years are believed to use CBD over other prescription drugs to better their mental health. This indicates the rising interest in the use of CBD and CBD patches among the population. Thus, it is anticipated that the acceptance and demand for CBD patches will also increase in developing countries, which will further support overall market growth.

“Environment-friendly Hemp Farming and Emergence of CBD Patches as Natural Alternative”

As hemp contains more amounts of CBD, increasing hemp farming will support the manufacturing of CBD patches and promote market growth. Hemp farming is beneficial for the environment as it helps decrease toxicity, eradicate radioactive chemicals, and helps restore damaged soil.

Additionally, hemp farming also helps protect the environment through bioremediation; it consumes four times as much CO2 as trees. Hence, increasing hemp farming is directly proportional to the rise in the manufacturing of CBD products, which also include CBD patches.

How is Market Progress being Negatively Affected?

“Occurrence of Allergic Reaction Due to Use of CBD Patches”

CBD patches have several benefits over other medications but also have some drawbacks that hinder their acceptance in the market over other CBD topicals. CBD patches affect people with sensitive skin owing to the cause of irritation while adhesion.

Additionally, it has been seen that many companies use a chemical carrier for their patches to increase CBD penetration into the skin. This can generate an allergic reaction in some patients.

Moreover, strict licensing regulations for the manufacturing and sale of CBD products are an obstacle for market players who are looking to enter the marketplace. Apart from this, the complexity of the import-export of CBD products hinders global market expansion to some extent.
