Erectile Dysfunction (ED) Drugs Market (Drug: Viagra, Cialis, Staxyn/Levitra, Stendra/Spedra, and Others; and Distribution Channel: Hospital Pharmacies, Retail Pharmacies, and Online Pharmacies)- Global Industry Analysis, Share, Growth, Regional Outlook and Forecasts, 2022-2030

According to Nova one advisor, the global Erectile Dysfunction (ED) Drugs market size is expected to hit around USD 4.40 billion by 2030 from valued at USD 2.50 billion in 2021 and growing at a CAGR of 8.11% from 2022 to 2030.

The increasing prevalence of erectile dysfunction is expected to contribute to market growth. According to the European Association of Urology, the overall prevalence of ED was found to be around 52% in the European male population aged 40-70 years in 2020. In addition, according to the Boston University School of Medicine, approximately 22.9% of 40 years aged male population and 49.4% by age of 70 years are affected by erectile dysfunction. Thus, the increasing geriatric population is anticipated to increase the prevalence of ED over the forecast period and is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities in the market.

Eli Lilly and Company is supporting ED patients by offering medicine at low cost through Lilly Patient Support Program (LPSP). This program provides financial assistance to eligible ED uninsured patients in Canada who may require registration for this program. Thus, the presence of such supportive programs for a branded version of Cialis may increase the affordability of the lower-income patient population and also aid in generating increased revenue. Moreover, companies have undertaken initiatives such as collaboration and partnership for the manufacturing and commercialization of products in the overseas market. For instance, in January 2022, Petros Pharmaceuticals Inc. partnered with a global Contract Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) for the commercial production of Avanafil tablets. This partnership was formed with an aim to replace the existing agreement with Vivus Inc. and continue product supply.

Furthermore, according to the National Library of Medicine (2021), a phase 3 clinical trial was conducted by Sichuan Haisco Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd. to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Stendra in patients with ED in mainland China. The results of the clinical trial showed improvement in Chinese ED patients after administration of two doses of Stendra 100 mg & 200 mg. Such proven clinical effectiveness may strengthen Strenda’s (Avanafil) position in the market. However, lack of awareness about erectile dysfunction, shame about treatment, false-positive beliefs, social stigma pertaining to the disease, and lack of discretion may restrain the market growth. As per the survey conducted by the European Association of Urology (EAU), only 18% of the Spanish population heard about ED treatment, whereas 68.0% of the population believes the treatment benefits.

Increase in Awareness and Patient Education: Key Driver

  • Educating patients on the appropriate use of erectile dysfunction drugs can be effective through initial education and focusing on the method of administration of drugs. For instance, sildenafil and vardenafil should be taken an hour before intercourse, and food and alcohol intake should be avoided, thereby maintaining the speed and extent of drug absorption. Both the drugs are active for four to six hours. Tadalafil has an advantage of long duration of action i.e., for up to 36 hours. The absorption of tadalafil is unaffected by food and alcohol and the intake of tadalafil is advised several hours before sexual activity. Moreover, adequate sexual stimulation, ideally with a partner, is required.
  • Promotional and awareness campaigns for ED drugs should be extensively conducted to help minimize the stigma of impotence by bringing it out onto open discussion forums
  • Companies are working on educating the general population and people at risk, and advocating lifestyle changes
  • Pharmacists assess the needs of patients and identify drug problems to manage medication therapy

Narrowing of Insurance Coverage for Erectile Dysfunction Treatment

  • Development of pharmaceutical and branded drugs incurs large investments and longer duration of time in R&D activities and making them available to the patients for the treatment
  • Modifications in the healthcare insurance coverage can significantly affect the drug market. If an insurance program changes its policies and removes coverage for a certain treatment, sales of related drugs are likely to decrease. In general, insurance programs are more likely to cover essential expenses, such as heart disease medication, and are less likely to cover nonessential expenses, such as cosmetic surgery. The type of treatment prescribed for erectile dysfunction decides the possibility of insurance coverage. A person with a documented medical condition responsible for the cause of erectile dysfunction could incur insurance benefits. However, sex therapies and medications that have not been approved by the FDA have not been covered under insurance.
  • Due to low dynamic nature, the trend of switching to new drugs or automatic substitution is not prevalent in the erectile dysfunction drugs market, thereby creating further hurdles for players willing to enter the market

Regional Insights

North America dominated the erectile dysfunction drugs market and accounted for a revenue share of 52.2% in 2021 due to the high burden of disease, strong healthcare infrastructure, and approval of new products for treatment. In March 2022, Lupin received the U.S. FDA approval for its ANDA for sildenafil (10 mg/mL oral suspension) to market a generic equivalent to Revatio of Viatris Specialty LLC. The accessibility of affordable generic products may increase patient compliance, consequently, increasing the consumer base and revenue for the market

In Asia Pacific, the market for erectile dysfunction drugs is expected to witness fast growth during the forecast period. The growth of the region is attributable to the entry of new products into the region. For instance, in May 2020, iX Biopharma announced the supply of Wafesil and Silcap through telemedicine in Australia for the treatment of an adult patient with erectile dysfunction.
