The global Mexico Medical Cannabis market size was valued at US$ 47.9 million in 2020 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 27.10% during forecast period 2021 to 2028.

Growth Factors

Rising adoption of medicinal marijuana for the treatment of chronic conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, arthritis, anxiety, and epilepsy is one of the key factors propelling the Mexican medical cannabis market. Furthermore, approval of CBD derivatives for medicinal use is also expected to drive demand in the coming years.

The cannabis industry is booming due to its increasing adoption for medicinal application and imminent legalization for recreational use. In Mexico, marijuana is only legalized for medicinal use and is anticipated to be legalized for recreational purposes in an effort to abolish illicit drug trade and generate tax revenue.

Competition among existing players is moderately high as very few companies have the technology, financial resources, and legal clearance to venture into large-scale manufacturing of marijuana. Medical marijuana has been legalized in Mexico since June 2017. Health licenses for cultivation, harvesting, and production of marijuana in the country are exclusively limited to medicinal and research purposes. Laws pertaining to marijuana are not that well-regulated in the nation and go through a secondary regulation by Federal Commission for the Protection against Health Risks.

Report Highlights

marijuana buds emerged as the largest segment, accounting for 47.6% of the revenue owing to their low price and easy availability. Moreover, with the legalization of cannabis for recreational use, this segment is anticipated to remain dominant in the coming years. However, with growing indigenous production and expansion in availability and drop in price, the oil segment is expected to emerge as the fastest growing segment by the end of 2025, toppling the buds segment.

Marijuana oil is used for treatment of diseases and conditions such as cancer and nausea, and can also be used for improving sleep and alleviating stress and anxiety. Due to its high potential in medical use, it has been legalized in the country. Marijuana oil is available in various forms: edibles, vapes, topicals, and other products. The demand for smoking cannabis is decreasing owing to increasing social stigma regarding its smoking. Moreover, doctors are not comfortable with patients smoking, as it has potentially harmful components—particles, tar, and other chemicals. Thus, the adoption of oil is anticipated to witness robust growth.

Tinctures are expected to emerge as the second fastest growing segment in the Mexico medical cannabis market by product type. Marijuana tinctures are made by dissolving the drug in alcohol and are intended to be consumed sublingually. They exhibit a more rapid onset of action compared to oils. The onset of action of oils and other forms of cannabis medications is around 45 minutes, while tinctures show effect in around 15 min. In the case of patients suffering from severe pain, waiting for 15 minutes is a viable option compared to 45 minutes. Due to this advantage of tinctures, their demand is expected to increase over the forecast period.

Chronic pain is anticipated to emerge as the largest segment by revenue in the Mexico market. Pain that persists for 6 months or longer is termed as chronic pain, which is a major concern for a large number of patients in Mexico. Common diseases that include chronic pain as a symptom include neurogenic, arthritic, cancer, lower back associated disorders, neck and face pain, as well as headache.

The elderly population group, in particular, is more susceptible to chronic as well as acute pain, raising the demand for pain management medication. For instance, according to the National Institute of Statistics and Geography (INEGI) in 2017, the Mexican population consisted of 13 million geriatric individuals, which indicates a massive potential customer pool. Moreover, research studies indicate that relieves chronic pain in elderly patients. Therefore, increasing awareness regarding the medical benefits of cannabis and growing geriatric population are expected to drive the market for chronic pain management. However, there are dosages and route of administration concerns related to pain management in case of marijuana.

Marijuana is majorly used for treatment of mental disorders that do not respond to other alternative treatment options. Mental disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety disorders, depression, bipolar disorder, multiple sclerosis, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease are all presumed to be effectively treated by medical marijuana, owing to higher therapeutic effects. Due to the legalization of cannabis for medical use in Mexico, demand for the same has increased.
