The global market for Fibromyalgia Therapeutics is projected to reach US$1.8 billion by 2022, driven by the rise in incidence and diagnosis of fibromyalgia syndrome and the expected launch of new drugs that are currently in research stage. Growing awareness among the medical community and the expected decline in widespread misdiagnosis and misunderstanding of the disease is forecast to benefit growth in the market in the coming years. Improving diagnostic criteria supported by continuous R&D efforts; and launch of newer, and more potent premium higher priced therapies are expected to accelerate value growth of the market. The United States represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide supported by incidence rates as high as 3-5% of the total population; growing awareness and overall understanding of the disease as a result of high profile awareness campaigns. The country's dominance in the global market is also due to the fact that it is the only country to have approved three fibromyalgia drugs namely Cymbalta, Lyrica and Savella.
