Increasing Prevalence of Menopause 

This increase in the aging population has led to a higher prevalence of menopause, a natural and permanent cessation of menstruation, resulting from declining ovarian function. Menopause occurs in most women between the ages of 45 and 55, with an average age of 51. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the global female population aged 50 years and over is estimated to reach 1.2 billion by 2030. The prevalence of menopause varies by country, with an overall prevalence of around 45% worldwide. In developed countries, such as the United States, Japan, and Europe, the prevalence is higher, at around 70% among women aged between 45 and 55 years. In developing countries, such as Africa and Asia, the prevalence is lower, at around 30% among women aged over 50 years. 

The increase in the prevalence of menopause has resulted in a high demand for treatment options to manage the symptoms, which includes hot flashes, vaginal dryness, sleep disturbances, and mood changes. Hormone replacement therapy (HRT), which is considered as an ideal treatment option for menopausal symptoms and has been a first line of treatment for women for many years. However, the potential risks associated with HRT, such as breast cancer and cardiovascular diseases, have led to a decline in its use. This has resulted in the development of alternative treatment options, including non-hormonal therapies, and plant-based supplements. However, due to lack of awareness, side effects & safety concerns are anticipated to challenge industry participants.

The pandemic had a significant negative impact on the menopause market, resulting in decreased sales, a lack of innovation, and reduced access to treatment for women. The pandemic disrupted the production and supply chain of many healthcare products, including hormone replacement therapies (HRT) and other menopause treatments. This has affected the availability of these products, resulting in a decrease in sales and revenue for companies in the menopause market. Many clinical trials for new menopause treatments had been cancelled or delayed due to the pandemic.

Pfizer's has an approved drug named Duavee, for use in postmenopausal women with an intact uterus and helps in treatment of hot flashes and vaginal dryness. 

In recent years, there have been several drug launches, such as Brisdelle by Noven Pharmaceuticals, a non-hormonal option for the treatment of hot flashes, and Osphena by Shionogi, an estrogen agonist/antagonist for the treatment of vaginal atrophy. Such products launched, have provided a wide range of medications for women to manage their symptoms during menopause.
