Published On : May 10, 2019

Global Fibromyalgia Treatment Market Size, by Drug Class (Antidepressants (Milnacipran (Savella and Other Generics), Duloxetine (Cymbalta and Other Generics), and Others), Antiepileptics (Pregabalin (Lyrica and Other Generics), and Others), Muscle Relaxants, Analgesics, and Others (Including Pipeline Drugs)), by Distribution Channel (Hospital Pharmacies, Retail Pharmacies, and Online Pharmacies), and by Region (North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa), was valued at US$ 2,778.6 Mn in 2018 and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 3.3% during the forecast period (2018–2026), as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights. Robust pipeline and high prevalence of fibromyalgia is expected to support the fibromyalgia treatment market growth over the forecast period.

Approval of drugs such as Lyrica (2007 first drug for treating fibromyalgia), Cymbalta (2008), and Savella (2009) in the past propelled growth of the market, when medications such as muscle relaxants, analgesics, opioids, and other medications were mainly used as an off label treatment.

Subsequently, generic versions of Cymbalta (patent loss in 2013) and Lyrica (in the U.K. after Pfizer lost patent litigation case against Actavis & Mylan in 2015) were made available by generic manufacturers in the market. Launch of generic versions of branded drugs indicated for treatment of fibromyalgia is expected to increase its affordability and support fibromyalgia treatment market growth over the forecast period.

Moreover, increasing penetration of generic fibromyalgia treatment drugs globally, coupled with launches of novel pipeline drugs is expected to support growth of the fibromyalgia treatment market over the forecast period.

For instance, Intec Pharma Ltd. announced the initiation of a Phase I clinical trial of AP-CBD/THC, its Accordion Pill platform with two primary cannabinoids contained in Cannabis sativa, cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), for various indications, including low back pain and fibromyalgia, in 2017.

Furthermore, high prevalence of fibromyalgia across the globe is expected to be a major factor driving the global fibromyalgia treatment market growth over the forecast period.

For instance, according to National Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Association, 2014, an estimated 210 million people in 2015 were affected with fibromyalgia syndrome, accounting for 2-4% of the total world population. According to the National Fibromyalgia Association, 2015, fibromyalgia affects an estimated 10 million people in the U.S., thus driving organizations and manufacturers to launch efficient therapies. This, in turn, is expected to bolster the global fibromyalgia treatment market growth over the forecast period.
