According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Insomnia Market is accounted for $5124.04 million in 2021 and is expected to reach $7807.44 million by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period. Insomnia is a common sleep disorder characterized by difficulties in sleep. Insomnia can exist as alone or conjugated with other psychiatric problems. The exact reason for the cause of insomnia is still unknown. It is most common in women and the severity may increase in conditions like postpartum, menopause and pregnancy. Insomnia disorder can be diagnosed in sleep laboratories using various diagnostic devices.

Market Dynamics:


Increasing Stress in Work Place

The work conditions are presently a lot of stress for the employees which is further resulting in tension, constant thinking, and loss of sleep. Also, the market is witnessing a huge demand for OTC drugs amongst the different age groups of patients that are suffering from insomnia. Also, owing to the rising incidence of insomnia amongst people due to numerous reasons like tension and stress is likely to act as major drivers for the global growth of the market.


Lack of Clinical Training 

Lack of in-depth clinical training in current medical curricula has resulted in delayed or misdiagnosed and improper treatment plans for patients. An increased understanding and screening of insomnia disorder by health care professionals could result in broader public knowledge of insomnia disorder and sleep health.


Development of New Technologies

The development of new technologies and the introduction of medical devices are anticipated to boost the market growth. The major market players are playing a significant role in the market. For instance, Eisai Co. Ltd received approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the firm launched its 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.


Strict Condition

As insomnia’s drugs can be prescribed by doctors only in special cases and under strict conditions, like morphine. These prescriptions are strictly determined by distribution and storage licenses and laws which act ac a major threat for the growth of the market.

Benzodiazepines segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

Benzodiazepines are a type of sedative medication. This means they slow down the body and brain's functions. They can be used to help with anxiety and insomnia (difficult getting to sleep or staying asleep) Benzodiazepines are a group of CNS depressants which induce feelings of calm (anxiolysis), drowsiness and sleep. They act by facilitating the binding of the inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA at various GABA receptors throughout the CNS.

The over-the-counter segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The over-the-counter sleep aids segment is going to have lucrative growth during the forecast period attributing to the growth of this market includes easier availability, low prices, and publicity regarding the side effects of the prescription sleep aids has also steered the patients towards over-the-counter sleep aid.

Region with highest share:

The North America is projected to hold the highest market share, owing to the growing need for sleep disorder treatment in the US and Canada coupled with the growing prevalence of sleep disorders is driving the market. According to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine 2020, stress can result in adjustment insomnia, which may affect up to 20% of people in the United States each year. Poor sleeping habits in children lead to behavioural insomnia of childhood, affecting 30% of children. Prescription drugs, substance abuse, medical disorders, and mental health conditions cause insomnia, with about 3% of the population having this type of sleep issue. Specific causes include depression, drug withdrawal, obesity, and anaemia.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR. The market expansion in this province can be highly attributed to increased stress level of working population along with shift-work related sleep disorders. Asia-Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ) will also remain a remunerative region for growth of the market Governments in the province are constantly focusing on improving their healthcare system along with the provision of favourable reimbursement policies, which in turn might impact the insomnia market.
