Top Drivers and Deterrents

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, the pandemic has shown no sign of stopping and a vaccine development is expected to take a long time. The efforts by government to try out drugs available in the market have prompted bulk purchases to curb the COVID-19 impact. The lockdown imposed for controlling the spread of the novel coronavirus has also dealt a significant blow on the global economy and the market, with manufacturing units closing down and workforce reduced to small numbers. However, a few studies have shown that medicinal marijuana has the potential to treat the symptoms of SARS-CoV-2, have anti-inflammatory characteristics, and can bring down anxiety and pain. A few other studies also reveal that cannabis extracts can decrease blood coagulation in animals; which is leading to a higher demand for medical marijuana worldwide.

Another approach that is being explored is in Israel, which focuses on developing a cell therapy treatment that makes use of medical marijuana/CBD-loaded exosomes for the treatment of SARS-CoV-2 patients. The technology could help target both the novel coronavirus and the central nervous system. The rapid mount in extensive research and development activities to understand the application scope of medical marijuana not only for treating COVID-19 but also for various other ailments can be favorable for the market growth in the years to come. The escalation in countries that are legalizing the use of medical marijuana can also bolster its therapeutic application scope in the ensuing years.

The surge in acquisitions and mergers between reputed firms in the medical marijuana industry is also a key growth attribute. To illustrate, in October 2020, 4Cable TV International Inc. announced its plan to acquire a Medical Marijuana and Hemp Company. The firm is on the verge to take over two CBD vendors in the market and will be making the final decision in the following weeks.

Since 2017, the Americas has been the ruling market and is also touted to expand at a significant rate of 34.0% over the evaluation period. The medical marijuana is extensively used in the region, given the high prevalence of cancer, the Alzheimer disease, and more. Also, the cannabis legalization for recreational purpose in states such as Maine, California, Massachusetts, Nevada and Arizona has helped bolster the market size in the region.

Europe, with a share of 5.5% in the global market is the second highest gainer, on account of the mounting number of states that are legalizing the use of medical marijuana along with the soaring preference for cannabis in recreational and medical applications. Extensive research and development activities in the region have also prompted significant market expansion within the region.

APAC is one of the fastest climbing markets in the global race, with a major boost given by Thailand’s recent acceptance of medical marijuana in February 2020 and a rising number of Southeast Asian nations jumping on the bandwagon. The APAC market is therefore said to be brimming with lucrative opportunities for global investors that are interested in expanding their base in the region. A growing number of countries in the region are softening their stance on the drug, with most of the major hospitals starting to adopt it for medical purposes.

These favorable developments in the regional market are expected to translate into considerable revenue generation in the following years.
