The U.S. insomnia market is categorised into pharmacological treatments and non-pharmacological treatments. The U.S. insomnia pharmacological treatment market is projected to reach USD 4.24 Billion by 2021 from USD 3.38 Billion in 2016, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2016 to 2021. The duration of insomnia can be from a day to years. Based on duration, insomnia is divided into three major categories, namely, transient insomnia (less than a month), short term insomnia (between 1 month and 6 months), and chronic insomnia (more than 6 months).
In 2016, the prescription sleep aids segment is expected to account for the largest share of the U.S. insomnia pharmacological treatment market. The launch of Belsomra (Merck & Co., Inc) in 2014 in the U.S. and the anticipated launch of E-2006 (Eisai Co., Ltd.) is expected to drive the growth of the market during the forecast years.

In 2016, the zolpidem segment is expected to account for the largest share of the non-benzodaizepines prescription sleep aids market. However, higher adoption of generic products that are available are cheaper price is negatively affecting the growth of the market.
The over-the-counter sleep aids segment of the U.S. insomnia pharmacological treatment market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Reasons attributing to the growth of this market include easier availability, low prices, and publicity regarding the side effects of the prescription sleep aids has also steered the patients towards OTC sleep aid.
