Key Factors Contributing Towards Growth of the Benzodiazepine Drugs Market 2020 to 2026

Drug Abuse Issues Continue to Plague Benzodiazepine Drugs Industry

Benzodiazepine drugs are medications which are commonly used to treat lifestyle based ailments such as chronic back pain, insomnia, and anxiety. These are a type of psychoactive drugs, which comprise a fusion of diazepine and benzene rings. Benzodiazepine drugs are widely considered to be short and intermediate term drugs for the treatment of anxiety.

The global benzodiazepine market is expected to witness a sluggish CAGR of 2.7 per cent through the end of the forecast period in 2026. However, while benzodiazepines are expected to witness a demand for high volumes of these drugs, the contribution of such sales will remain moderate in value in terms of market share.

Generic Products to Maintain Rise

North America is set to become the key contributor to the benzodiazepine drugs market, owing to the high rates of consumption for the treatment of anxiety disorders in this region, as anxiety ailments affect around 40 million adults in the United States alone, for every year.

Benzodiazepine drugs are primarily used for anxiety issues, and this accounts for more than 50 per cent of the overall sales figures. This trend is expected to contribute towards increasing adoption rates, even as the consciousness among patients for treatment options increases.

Further branded medications are continuing to witness diminishing returns owing to the rising popularity of generic variants. The high capital needs for the development of high quality standards for branded drugs, are also bolstering the penetration for generic drugs in the benzodiazepine industry.

Deaths and Side Effects from Drug Abuse are Key Restraints for Industry

Some of the major restraints in the industry, is the abuse of these drugs by patients and a number of cases involving overdoses, which have even led to death.
