New improved medication with lesser side effects will drive the insomnia therapeutics market growth globally

Benzodiazepines (BZP) such as temazepam and diazepam are the commonly prescribed medication for insomnia. Though these medications are effective, prolonged use of these drugs may cause cognitive impairment, dependency and addiction. The launch of novel drugs such as Intermezzo (2014), tasimelteon (2014) have created a meteoric growth in G7 countries in the insomnia therapeutics and is expected market over the forecast period.

Intermezzo (2014), are used in small doses and administered under the tongue for faster absorption. Tesimelton approved by FDA in 2014 is the only drug approved by FDA for Non-24-Hour Sleep-Wake Rhythm Disorder and it lacks abuse potential. These products are expected to drive the insomnia therapeutics market over the forecast period.

Increasing awareness and treatment seeking rates for insomnia are expected to further contribute to the growth of the market. However, the loss of exclusivity of the drugs led the market more genericized, creating a competitive environment for new entrants. For instance, non-benzodiazepines and low dose sedating anti-depressants, still considered as a first line of medication for the insomnia, are facing stiff competition from the generics.

According to a report by Sleep Research Society, 2012, 20% of the general adult population in Canada and U.S is suffering from insomnia and this number is expected to increase in the near future. Problems like daytime sleepiness, and fatigue is affecting larger number of population and imposing a considerable burden on these regions. These factors all together will trigger the total insomnia therapeutics market demand in the future period.
