Antidepressant Market Analysis, Size, Growth, Trends, Demand and Forecast Report

Anti Depressant Market Overview:

The major factors for the growth of the global antidepressant market include rising cases of depression, increasing awareness of depression, and the emergence of new biologics. Overall, depression affects more than 300 million people across all age groups, and this amount is growing at a rapid rate. The increase in the number of young adults affected by some form of depression is as high as 8%. Depression due to factors such as social isolation and stressful job environment has contributed the most to increasing the number of people suffering from depression. It is expected that the number of people falling prey to depression and associated disorders will continue to increase as a result of improper eating habits, stressful job schedule, growing isolation from family and loved ones due to technology, and the failure to adapt to the fast speed at which the world is moving forward. In countries such as the United Kingdom and the United States, which are characterized by their fast-paced economies, the proportion of the affected population in each age group is quite large. In addition, increasing aged population globally enhances the potential of the market studied over the forecast period. According to WHO estimates, 322 million individuals suffered from depression in 2015, globally, and nearly half of these people belong to the Southeast Asian region and the Western Pacific region. Thus, increasing cases of depression globally are anticipated to drive the general market growth studied over the forecast period.

According to information released by the National Institute of Mental Health, approximately 16.2 million adults in the United States had at least one major depressive episode.
