Occupational medicines market growth is driven by the ability to reduce the burden of healthcare expenditure and increase productivity, surge in awareness, favorable regulatory environment and increasing awareness programs organized by governments and increasing chronic diseases among working population.

Increasing awareness programs organized by governments and increasing chronic diseases among working population is expected to hold the largest share in this market segment

The governments are paying a significant attention towards occupational health across the world. New laws and policies have been framed or some existing policies have been renewed to in accordance with the health level of all workers. For instance, in September 2020, the Indian government passed occupational health and safety act in India to consolidate and amend the laws regulating the occupational safety, health. This act will also amend the working conditions of the persons employed in an establishment and for matters connected. These government activities are focused on creating awareness among working groups regarding occupational health and safety, hence, driving the growth of the studied market.

Increasing adaptation of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation across industries is expected hamper the market growth

The increasing adoption of AI has been a new growth driver for semiconductor chipset manufacturers in recent years. GPU/CPU manufacturers, such as Nvidia, AMD, Intel, Qualcomm, Huawei, and Samsung, have significantly invested in this field for the development of chipsets that are compatible with AI-based technologies and solutions. Apart from CPUs and GPUs, application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are being developed for AI applications. For instance, Google has built a new ASIC called tensor processing unit (TPU).

COVID-19 Impact Analysis:

While the sudden outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted most of the business sectors negatively. The strict lockdowns and shutdowns across global industry sectors have led to reduced occupational injuries and fatalities. The manufacturing and production industries and construction sites remained closed following strict regulations. This led to fewer fatalities and occupational injuries. Hence, impacted the market negatively. However, the effect of the pandemic on the psychology of the working population had a drastic impact. The other health conditions such as work-related backache and stress have increased. These work-related illnesses increased by the time pandemic was at its peak. Hence, driving the growth of the studied market.

Segment Analysis

By Application:
Respiratory Diseases
Chemical Poisoning
Skin Disorders
Musculoskeletal Disorders

The respiratory diseases segment is expected to hold the largest share in this market segment

The respiratory diseases by application segment are expected to grow over the forecast period among other segments. An increasing number of respiratory illnesses such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and silicosis globally are poised to drive the growth of the studied segment.

Work-related respiratory diseases are several illnesses that are caused by breathing in hazardous substances that damage the lungs such as dust, fumes, and gases. Occupational lung disease has been adding to respiratory distress. People who work in drug manufacturing, and antibiotics manufacturing factories complain about breathing issues and work-related asthma is more prevalent among this target population. In an article published in September 2021, titled "Dealing with Respiratory Hazards in A Pharmaceutical Workplace" it is mentioned that even though the pharmaceutical factories are generally clean and well-maintained workspaces, air contamination through chemical hazards or pharmaceutical ingredients have been a significant occupational health and safety (OHS) issue within the pharma industry. This sometimes leads to acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term) respiratory effects among the workers. Hence, with the increasing drug development and manufacturing, the risk of occupational respiratory diseases is increasing. Hence, it is anticipated to drive the growth of the segment over the forecast period.

Furthermore, in 2019, an estimated 174 new cases of occupational asthma were reported by doctors who participated in the SWORD (Surveillance of Work-Related & Occupational Respiratory Diseases) scheme within the Health and Occupation Reporting (THOR) network, United Kingdom. Additionally, as per United States Bureau of Labor Statistics data updated in November 2021, Employer-reported respiratory illnesses increased nearly 4,000 percent in 2020 in the United States, which was estimated that employer-reported respiratory illness cases in 2020 increased to 428,700, which increased from 10,800 in 2019. Therefore, the work-related respiratory diseases segment is anticipated to grow over the forecast period globally.
