Narcolepsy is a sleep disorder which is characterized by extreme daytime sleepiness and unexpected attacks of sleep.

The usual indications of narcolepsy include daytime sleepiness, sleep paralysis, hallucinations, fragmented sleep & insomnia.

  • The growing prevalence of narcolepsy and the rising obese population are the factors primarily driving the business spectrum.
  • The Asia Pacific region is expected to emerge as a strong contender over the forecast duration.
  • The global market is susceptible to some hindrance over the forecast period owing to lack of awareness in middle- and lower-income economies and low per capita healthcare spending.

According to the report, increasing cases of narcolepsy and growing overweight population are key factors projected to drive the global narcolepsy therapeutics market growth. Numbers by the Sleep Science journal 2017 report suggested that around 1 in every 2,000 people globally are affected by narcolepsy disorder. Additionally, the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare states that nearly 63% of Australians over the age of 18 years were expected to be obese or overweight. Additionally, factors like increasing R&D activities and demands for effective narcolepsy treatments are also expected to drive market growth in the coming years.

With regards to the product landscape, the market is segmented into central nervous system stimulants, tricyclic antidepressants, sodium oxybate, and selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor. As per the report, the sodium oxybate segment dominated the market in 2017. This development was observed on account of favorable repayment guidelines, the rising awareness concerning diagnosis and associated treatments of the disorder and the high cost of this drug.  Based on the type, the global narcolepsy therapeutics market is bifurcated into narcolepsy without cataplexy, narcolepsy with cataplexy, and secondary narcolepsy. The narcolepsy with cataplexy segment dominated the market in 2017. The dominance was credited to the growing prevalence of cataplexy as a major sign in patients.
