Technavio Research
Posted on: 10 Oct 16

Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recentglobal erectile dysfunction treatment marketreport. This research report also lists 11 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The global erectile dysfunction (ED) treatment market is expected to display negative growth during the forecast period, primarily because of the patent expiration of major drugs, which include Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra/Staxyn, in major regions (counting Japan and China), and lack of products in the immediate pipeline.

Several low-cost herbal forms of Viagra such as Malenergex are being aggressively marketed by retailers, especially online; this trend has gradually taken over the market share of patented approved ED drugs.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global ED treatment market is oligopolistic in nature, as it is dominated by a few large companies around the world. The ED drug market is dominated by Eli Lilly, Pfizer, and Bayer, whereas the ED devices market is dominated by Coloplast and Boston Scientific (American Medical Systems). Boston Scientific is alone credited to have provided penile implants solution to more than 300,000 men.

The market currently has a broad range of solutions to treat ED, including ED drugs, ED devices or implants, intraurethral injections, and vacuum erection devices. The companies in the ED market are constantly competing for the top position, with occasional spurts of competition from local manufacturers in various countries, especially in China, which has many vendors offering low-priced counterfeit products,” says Amber Chourasia, a lead health and wellness analyst from Technavio.

The demand for ED solutions will be high in APAC countries such as China, South Korea, and Japan, which have growing older adult population. These countries will constitute the fastest growing market, with many local players having a considerable share in the market. The market which will witness many patent expirations will see players competing on various factors such as price, availability, brand, and variety.
