Global Erectile Dysfunction Drugs Market To Grow At A CAGR Of 6.9% During The Projection Period.

21-Jun-2022 | Zion Market Research

The global erectile dysfunction drugs market reached nearly USD 3.64 billion in 2021 and is projected to expand with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 6.9 percent over the forecast period to grow by about USD 5.94 billion by 2028.

Erectile dysfunction is the disorderly functioning of the male sex organ and occurs when a man is not able to hold a complete erection during sexual intercourse. As per reports, around 30m men can be affected by erectile dysfunction. Some of the major causes of ED is the limited blood flow toward the male sex organ if there is some harm caused to the nerves, due to rising stress or hormonal levels, and it also acts as an early warning towards more serious diseases like atherosclerosis or heart issues.

Patients who suffer from ED should first be evaluated by certified professionals to determine the exact underlying cause or psychological conditions. In case the treatment of underlying causes is not enough, additional medication or helping devices like pumps can be provided to the patient. Some of the medicines present in the global erectile dysfunction drugs market are vardenafil (Levitra, Staxyn), avanafil (Stendra), Sildenafil (Viagra), and tadalafil (Cialis). These are oral medications and should be consumed only in prescribed dosages to avoid any adverse effects on the body. These drugs act by adding to the effects of nitric oxide which is a natural muscle relaxant.

Covid-19 had a positive impact on the global market as the demand for these drugs increased significantly owing to increased cases of ED amongst men. As per a report published by the University of Miami - Miller School of Science, Florida in 2020, Covid-19 induced endothelial dysfunction led to erectile dysfunction as well.

With advancements in generating awareness about different medical conditions and creating a healthy discussion around topics that were earlier considered taboo, or led to the shaming of patients, there is a rising acceptance of understanding the main causes behind erectile dysfunction and treatment measures. This is also assisted by the increased advertising and marketing campaigns run by private players to generate wakefulness amongst the population. This has caused many ED-affected patients to come out and undergo proper medical consultation and overcome the problem. The rising awareness and general acceptance of the disease are anticipated to aid the global erectile dysfunction drugs market. There is a significant change in lifestyle amongst the population with increasing consumption of alcohol, drugs, frequent smoking habits, surging stress levels, etc. All of these reasons along with growth in obesity index and patients suffering from high blood pressure are leading causes of the increasing ED cases and are anticipated to aid the global market growth in the coming years.

Some of the adverse side effects associated with ED drugs are expected to hinder the global market growth whereas increased pharmaceutical manufacturing in emerging countries is likely to offer better growth opportunities for global market expansion. An increase in the availability of counterfeit erectile dysfunction medicines poses a major challenge for the global market growth.
