High-volume Yet Low-value Sales Projected in Benzodiazepine Drugs Market

Branded medications such as Xanax continue to witness a diminishing impact in the benzodiazepine drugs market, on the back of growing popularity of generic drugs. High capital requirements for the development of quality branded drugs are increasing the penetration of generic drugs in the benzodiazepine drugs market.

The trend of developing generic drugs holds relevance for prominent players such as Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. and Mylan N.V., who generate a sizeable revenue (around 58% market share) through the sales of generic products.

Benzodiazepine drugs are a single panacea to numerous disorders such as anxiety, insomnia, and seizures, which continues to catalyse sales through multiple applications. Growing awareness about the side-effects of psychoactive drugs, in turn, increases the adoption of relatively safe benzodiazepine drugs.

That being said, the benzodiazepine drugs market is expected to record a pedestrian CAGR of around 2.7% during the forecast period (2020-2026).

North American Benzodiazepine Drugs Market Growing in Proportion to Increasing Prevalence of Anxiety Disorders

North America is a key benzodiazepine drugs market, with high consumption of these drugs for the treatment of anxiety disorders.

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association, anxiety disorders affect around 40 million adults in the U.S., every year, which is likely to increase adoption, as consciousness regarding quality treatment grows among individuals.

Application of benzodiazepine drugs for the treatment of anxiety alone is projected to account for over 53% share in the market by 2026, while drug consumption for the treatment of seizures is likely to record a CAGR of around 2.4% during the forecast period.

However, the impact of stringent regulations against drug abuse is such that, sales of benzodiazepine drugs receive closure through retail and hospital pharmacies, as these drugs require a proper prescription.

This, when compared to relatively lenient regulations in Asia Pacific and Latin America, sales of benzodiazepine drugs through online pharmacies are projected to witness a CAGR of around 3.5% and 3.4%, respectively.
