The growing impact of clinical trials and tests for erectile dysfunction drugs also contribute to the growth in this market. Some of the current trends in the market are innovative drug delivery, new test techniques, blockbuster patent expirations, and molecule combinations - all offering plenty of growth opportunities in the global erectile dysfunction drugs market. Although various merits are propelling the erectile dysfunction drugs market, some factors also impede the acceptance of these drugs all around the world. The growing threat from counterfeit drugs in the market, prevalence of sexually transmitted diseases with ED drug users, and narrowing of insurance coverage for erectile dysfunction treatment are some of the major market restraints.In the recent past, the market witnessed an end of patent exclusivities, which has further cut down the revenue of the global erectile dysfunction drugs market. The market will also experience a low growth rate due to the weak pipeline development in terms of new drug formulations. Overall, the market is on the verge of suffering a big setback before the end of the forecast period.

Based on brand, this study report divides the market into Stendra/Spedra, Viagra, Cialis, MUSE, Mvix, Levitra/Staxyn, Zydena, and Helleva. Viagra accounted for the largest share in the overall market. By revenue, Viagra held a 45% share of the total erectile dysfunction drugs market. However, due to expiration of patents of the Viagra drug, especially outside the U.S. in 2013, the availability of Viagra has declined.
