Market Dynamics:

The growth of the dyspareunia treatment market is majorly driven by the increasing research and development activities for developing novel therapies to treat dyspareunia. For instance, in August 2019, researchers from University of FlorenceFlorence, Italy tested the use of fractional carbon dioxide laser therapy for the treatment of provoked vestibulodynia, which is a form of dyspareunia. The results showed that carbon dioxide laser therapy reduced pain during intercourse and increased sexual function and satisfaction. Moreover, growing adoption of minimally invasive procedures for the treatment of dyspareunia is also expected to aid in the market growth over the forecast period. For instance, procedures such as pulsed radiofrequency treatment, botox injection, and radiofrequency coagulation are gaining traction owing to benefits such as less pain, faster recovery time, and lower risks of complication associated with them.

Market Trends:

Growing adoption of hormonal therapy is one of the key trends being witnessed in the dyspareunia treatment market. Estrogen plays an important role in regulation of vaginal tissues, and low estrogen levels caused due to menopause can cause thinning, dryness, and inflammations of vaginal tissues leading to pain during intercourse. Therefore, local estrogen therapies through creams, rings, and tablets are widely used for management of dyspareunia caused due to low estrogen levels. Furthermore, increasing preference for alternative therapies for the treatment of dyspareunia is another major trend in the market. Alternative therapies including acupuncture, massage, capsaicin cream, alpha blockers, and nerve blocks are gaining acceptance owing to lesser side effects and advantage of combination therapies.

The selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) segment is expected to dominate the drug type segment owing to the minimal side effects associated with its usage. SERMs help reduce dyspareunia and vaginal dryness in postmenopausal women by blocking the effects of estrogen in tissues like the breast and uterine lining while having estrogenic effects in other tissues like bone and vagina. Drugs like ospemifene help relieve pain during sexual intercourse and treat moderate to severe dyspareunia through selective action at estrogen receptors in the vagina and other tissues.

Within the route of administration segment, oral route is anticipated to hold the major share due to higher patient adherence. The oral route provides instant relief through easy intake of tablets and capsules. Drugs taken orally get absorbed quickly through the gastrointestinal tract into the bloodstream and provide relief from symptoms within a short period. The non-invasive nature and convenience of oral drugs boost their demand over other administration routes.

Key Market Takeaways:

The global dyspareunia treatment market is anticipated to witness a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period 2024-2031, driven by the rising prevalence of postmenopausal symptoms and associated painful sex.

On the basis of drug type, selective estrogen receptor modulators segment is expected to hold a dominant position owing to the minimal side effects of SERM drugs.

On the basis of route of administration, oral segment is expected to hold a dominant position over the forecast period due to higher patient adherence resulting from easy intake.

By region, North America is expected to hold a dominant position over the forecast period due to the increasing research on women’s health issues and growing healthcare expenditure in the region.
