DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Global Narcolepsy Drugs Market (By Therapeutic Type, Disease Type, End User, Regional Analysis), Pipeline Analysis, Key Company Profiles and Recent Developments – Forecast to 2030” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.


The global narcolepsy drugs market was valued at US$ 3,596 Million in 2023 and is projected to reach US$ 6,138 Million by 2030.

According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) estimates, narcolepsy affects over 3 million people globally and about 135,000 to 200,000 people in the United States. The growing stress levels among individuals, and an upsurge in intake of alcohol, tobacco, and other dangerous addictive substances are likely to raise the number of patients with narcolepsy disorders.

Narcolepsy is a lifelong condition that cannot be cured, but medicines and lifestyle changes can help in managing the symptoms. Narcolepsy is currently treated with sodium oxybate, central nervous system stimulants, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), and other antidepressants, but these therapeutics only provide symptomatic treatment.

The global narcolepsy drugs market has witnessed significant growth in recent years owing to the rising prevalence of narcolepsy and increased awareness about the condition. The market is driven by the increasing demand for effective treatment options that can alleviate narcolepsy symptoms and improve the quality of life for affected individuals.

Pharmaceutical companies such as Jazz Pharmaceuticals, Takeda Pharmaceuticals, Teva Pharmaceuticals, Axsome Therapeutics Inc., NLS Pharmaceutics, and other companies are actively involved in research and development activities to introduce novel and more efficient drugs in the market. Moreover, governments in countries such as India, China, and South Africa are promoting the manufacturing of narcolepsy drugs due to the associated health benefits, which are projected to fuel the narcolepsy drugs market over the forecast period.

The increasing awareness programs conducted by various organizations such as Wake Up Narcolepsy, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, Narcolepsy UK, Narcolepsy Australia, and many others are increasing awareness levels about the disease and guiding people and healthcare professionals to improve the quality of life of patients with narcolepsy.
