Market Synopsis

A multifunctional serotonin agonist and antagonist pharmacodynamic profile increase the popularity of flibanserin for treating HSDD.

Hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) is the absence of sexual thoughts and fantasies that causes low libido and sex drive in the female population worldwide. The neurochemical basis associated with HSDD is not fully understood, but low sexual desire has been associated with hyperfunction inhibition, hypofunctional excitation, or a combination of both regulated by neuromodulators. Fluctuating sex hormones during the menstrual cycle are also a chief contributing factor to the occurrence of HSDD in the female population worldwide.

The diagnosis of HSDD is challenging, and physicians rely on pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy for its treatment. The PLISSIT model (Permission, Limited Information, Specific Suggestions, and Intensive Therapy) aids in the initial screening of HSDD. Cognitive behavior therapy is offered to patients responding to counseling sessions with a sexual therapist. In pharmacotherapy, antidepressants such as bupropion and buspirone have been used as off-label treatments for HSDD in women showing low sexual drive associated with anxiety and depression.

Testosterone transdermal patches are used as an off-label treatment for premenopausal and postmenopausal women with HSDD. Flibanserin is currently the only drug approved by the USFDA for treating HSDD in premenopausal women by decreasing serotonin activity and increasing norepinephrine and dopamine activity simultaneously.

Increasing stress and fluctuating hormones are responsible for low sexual drive in the female population in the North American region.

North America, with a share of 38.5%, is currently the clear leader in the regional segment of the hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) treatment market. The chief contributing factors for the growing incidence of low sex drive in the female population in the North American region are increasing stress in daily life and fluctuating hormones associated with the menstrual cycle.

The presence of pharmaceutical companies engaged in drug development for treating HSDD, such as Allergan, Plc., AMAG Pharmaceuticals, S1 Biopharma, Inc., Sprout Pharmaceuticals, Inc., etc., further bolsters market growth in the region. Europe accounts for 32.4% of the market share owing to favorable reimbursement scenarios for drugs prescribed for the treatment of HSDD. Asia Pacific represents a 15.2% market share and is ready to register faster growth during the forecast period, primarily due to the rising incidence of stress in the working women population and developing healthcare infrastructure.
