The global erectile dysfunction drugs market will decline in the coming few years due to the growing threat of counterfeit drugs. Expiration of patents of many blockbuster drugs will further impede the growth of the global ED drugs market. The global erectile dysfunction drugs market will also be suppressed by the narrowing of insurance coverage for erectile dysfunction treatment. The rising prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases among ED drug users will further challenge the market. On the other hand, factors such as the rising geriatric population and growing awareness and patient education will fuel the global erectile dysfunction drugs market.
By brand, the global erectile dysfunction drugs market is segmented into Cialis (tadalafil), Viagra (sildenafil citrate), Stendra/Spedra (avanafil), Levitra/Staxyn (vardenafil), Zydena (udenafil), Mvix (mirodenafil), MUSE (medicated urethral system for erection), and Helleva (lodenafil carbonate). The Viagra segment held the largest share in the global erectile dysfunction drugs market; this segment held a 45% share in the global erectile dysfunction drugs market. Nevertheless, the patent expiration of Viagra, particularly outside U.S. in 2013, has led to a substantial decline in the sales of this drug.
