The report provides an in-depth analysis of regional data and an accurate projection of the market size and share of the Top 10 market players across the globe.

Global Narcolepsy Market is expected to grow at an approximate CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period.

Market Scenario:

Narcolepsy is a medical condition which is characterized by overwhelming daytime drowsiness and sudden attacks of sleep. Sometimes, this chronic sleep disorder can lead to a sudden loss of muscle tone (cataplexy), leading to weakness and loss of muscle control. Sleep paralysis, hallucinations, daytime sleepiness, fragmented sleep & insomnia, besides others are some of the most common symptoms of the disease. Increasing prevalence of narcolepsy and growing obese population are the major drivers of market growth during the forecast period. According to the Sleep Science journal in 2017, it was estimated that approximately 1 in every 2,000 people across the worldwide lives with narcolepsy. Moreover, from 2014-2015, the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare stated that approximately two-thirds, i.e., 63% of the Australian population which aged 18 years or more was estimated to be overweight or obese. Additionally, increasing demands for effective treatment of the disease followed by increasing research and development boost the market growth. However, lack of awareness and low per capita healthcare expenditure within the regional boundaries of middle and low-income countries is estimated to restrain the global narcolepsy market during the forecast period.
