Sexual dysfunction drugs market in Americas

The sexual dysfunction drugs market in the Americas is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 2% during the forecast period owing to increasing cases of prostate cancer, Parkinson's disease, CVDs, and diabetes along with the adoption of sedentary lifestyles, which gradually causes the development of sexual dysfunctions, particularly erectile dysfunction (ED) among men aged 40 years and above.

The high performance of pioneer sexual dysfunction drugs offered by major US pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer and Eli Lilly generates high revenue, making the country the largest contributor. The success of these drugs can be attributed to their efficacy, which has boosted their use among end-users. Furthermore, several pipeline drugs, which are under different stages of development and waiting for approval to be introduced into the market will fuel a huge demand in the market in the coming years.

Sexual dysfunction drugs market in EMEA

EMEA has experienced a high number of sexual dysfunction cases owing to factors such as sedentary lifestyles, sleep disorders, alcohol consumption, smoking, use of recreational drugs, obesity, depression, and CVDs. These factors are highly prevalent in major countries such as the UK, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain, which are the highest revenue contributors in the market.

Also, these countries have a high number of diabetes and prostate cancer cases that cause sexual dysfunction, which, in turn, increases demand for the drugs. Further, an increase in the number of men affected with Peyronie's disease is another major cause of sexual dysfunction in men. All these disease-related factors help in maintaining a steady demand for sexual dysfunction drugs, thus bolstering the market growth in this region.

Sexual dysfunction drugs market in APAC

Sexual dysfunction is common among older adults, resulting in decreased sexual functioning. The occurrence rate of ED is higher in older men as erection levels drop due to weakened penile muscles leading to an unsatisfactory sex life. This increases the demand for sexual dysfunction drugs, thereby bolstering the market growth.

APAC is witnessing an increasing trend of high disposable income among people, leading to the increased affordability of sexual dysfunction drugs, especially in countries such as China, India, and the Philippines. Also, the region is witnessing increasing cases of lifestyle diseases such as hypertension, CVDs, and diabetes that may gradually lead to sexual dysfunction.

“China and India offer huge opportunities for leading players in this market, as these countries account for a significantly large pool of under-served patients, who are being educated on sexual dysfunctions through awareness campaigns led by global bodies, thus ensuring an increase in demand for sexual dysfunction drugs in the coming years,” says Sapna.

The top vendors in the global sexual dysfunction drugs market as highlighted in this market research analysis are:

  • AbbVie
  • Bayer
  • Eli Lilly
  • Pfizer
