Market Report Focus On Japan Insomnia Market Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2023

Press Release   •   Oct 18, 2016 06:05 EDT

Insomnia is the most common sleep disorder and is believed to affect approximately 35% of the global population. The condition can be defined as patient-reported difficultly with sleep initiation or sleep maintenance which can include frequent awakenings, difficulty returning to sleep after awakenings, or awakening too early with inability to return to sleep. Cases of insomnia can be classified on the basis of etiology into primary and secondary (or comorbid) subtypes. The insomnia market is widely genericized creating a competitive environment for new products. As such, the treatment algorithm centers on the generically available nonbenzodiazepines and low-dose sedating antidepressants, despite the launch of numerous novel agents. The value of the insomnia market is set to further decline following the loss of exclusivity for Sunovion/Dainippon Sumitomos Lunesta, the top selling insomnia drug, in April 2014. However, GlobalData expects the launch of two pipeline products from a novel class of drugs to provide growth in the insomnia market as they may address some of the unmet need.

GlobalData estimates the drug sales for insomnia in 2013 were approximately $380.4m in Japan. Aside from some year-to-year fluctuation, the value of the insomnia market in Japan is expected to follow a growth trend over the 10-year forecast period, reaching $432.4m by 2023. This growth can be attributed to the launch of the orexin receptor antagonists Belsomra and E-2006, and the continued uptake of Lunesta and Rozerem prior to their respective patent expiries.
