Insomnia is a sleeping disorder in which an individual has difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep. People with insomnia can feel dissatisfied with their sleep and experience symptoms such as fatigue, low energy, difficulty concentrating, mood disturbances, and decreased performance at work or at school. Insomnia disorder is an economic burden and public health concern affecting up to one-third of the population of the United States.

Market Dynamics

The global insomnia treatment market growth is driven by the increasing number of sleep disorders, affordable reimbursement scenarios for drugs prescribed in insomnia treatment, rising health awareness leading to effective insomnia treatment, and developing healthcare infrastructure.

The development of new technologies and the introduction of medical devices will drive the market growth    

The growth of the market is expected to be boosted by the development of new technologies and the introduction of medical devices. The market's major players have a significant impact on the market. For instance, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Eisai Co. Ltd's in-house discovered orexin receptor antagonist DAYVIGO (lemborexant) CIV for the treatment of adults with insomnia characterized by difficulties with sleep onset and/or sleep maintenance in the United States in June 2020.

According to the American Psychological Association's (APA) Stress in America survey, adults in 2020 rated their stress levels as 5.0 on a scale of 1 to 10, up from 4.9 in 2019. Furthermore, stress levels among Gen Z adults have been slightly rising over the last two years, rising from 5.6 in 2018 to 5.8 in 2019, and 6.1 in 2020. Insomnia rarely occurs on its own and is frequently associated with other illnesses. Rather than treating the primary disorder, where symptoms of insomnia may go unnoticed or untreated, there is currently a push to recognize chronic insomnia as a disorder that requires treatment. Patients with insomnia are more likely to develop psychiatric disorders, such as depression and anxiety, as well as increased healthcare utilization and costs, lower quality of life, drug or alcohol abuse, poor occupational performance, and accidents.

Moreover, the growth of psychological conditions and constantly increasing noise levels in the urban areas will also propel the insomnia treatment market, during the forecast period.

The misconceptions about the seriousness of insomnia will hamper the growth of the market  

However, the misconceptions about the seriousness of insomnia and patient non adherence to the treatment are some of the factors that are expected to restrain market growth over the forecast period.   

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has produced unprecedented changes in lives. For many people, it has caused significant stress, anxiety, and concerns about health, social isolation, employment, finances, and the challenge of balancing work and family obligations for many people. Such a significant life event is likely to disrupt sleep and has an impact on market growth. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted sleep, according to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine's (AASM) Sleep Prioritization Survey 2020, about a third of adults (33%) have noticed a change in their sleep quality, 30% have noticed a change in their ability to fall asleep, and 29% have noticed a change in their nightly amount of sleep. In addition, females were more likely to report that bedtimes (31%) are impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic than males (25%).

Furthermore, fear of the pandemic led to depression in some people globally. Thus, an increase in coronasomnia, stress, and depression associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, surges the demand for insomnia drugs and drives the growth of the market.

Segment Analysis

The orexin antagonist segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2029)        

The orexin antagonist tablets support the natural transition from sleeplessness to sleep by inhibiting the arousal system's wakefulness-promoting orexin neurons. Suvorexant advances sleep onset, as well as sleep maintenance. This distinctive alternative has advantageous permissibility and a restricted side-effect profile.

Suvorexant is a potent dual orexin receptor antagonist that blocks both receptors, i.e., OX1R and OX2R. It stimulates sleep through the binding inhibition of orexin-A and B, neuropeptides that promote wakefulness.

According to the study titled "Evolution of Orexin Neuropeptide System: Structure and Function" published in the Frontier in Neuroscience in July 2020, in the human brain, there are approximately 70,000 orexin neurons located in the perifornical lateral hypothalamus, which send signals throughout the brain and spinal cord. Suvorexant’s mechanism of action varies from that of benzodiazepines and non-benzodiazepines since it has no effect on Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA). As an alternative to promoting sleep, it inactivates wakefulness. Thus these factors are driving the growth of the segment in the forecast period.

Geographical Analysis

North America region holds the largest market share of the global insomnia treatment market

North America leads the insomnia treatment market. The growing need for sleep disorder treatment in the US and Canada coupled with the growing prevalence of sleep disorders is driving the market over the forecast period. Stress can cause adjustment insomnia, according to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine 2020, which affects up to 20% of people in the United States each year. Children with poor sleeping habits are more likely to develop behavioral insomnia, which affects 30% of children. Insomnia is caused by prescription drugs, substance abuse, medical disorders, and mental health conditions, and it affects about 3% of the population. Depression, drug withdrawal, obesity, and anemia are some of the specific causes.

Additionally, the presence of supportive organizations specific to insomnia in the country is also a major driving factor for the market. The Canadian Sleep Society is one such national organization committed to improving sleep for all Canadians through support for research, promotion of high-quality clinical care, education of professionals and the people, and advocacy for sleep and sleep disorders medicine.
