Insomnia Treatment Market - Growth, Trends, and Forecast (2020 - 2025)
In a study published in PMC in 2015 by “Hindawi Journal” (by Timothy Fitzgerald and Jeffrey Vietri), it was revealed that approximately 25% of US adults have conveyed discontent regarding their sleep, of which 10 to 15% claim to experienced insomnia symptoms and 6–10% suffer from insomnia. The study also shows that approximately 70% of patients suffering from partial stages of insomnia also end up reporting insomnia disorder within one year, and 50% of that population continues to suffer from the symptoms for the next three years. The study suggests that insomnia has become one of the most prevalent disorders being reported in the primary care setup. Also, a high comorbidity rate has been observed between insomnia and medical or some psychiatric disorders. These statistics are a direct consequence of the increasing stress due to the current lifestyle of the urban population.
The other factors such as side effects due to certain OTC and prescription medication, arthritis, high usage of media devices before sleep, are driving the number of people suffering from insomnia, thus boosting the market growth prospects. 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.
