The global depression drugs market reached a value of US$ 12.7 Billion in 2020. Depression is a mental disorder characterized by the absence of positive emotions, constant low mood and numerous cognitive, physical, behavioral and emotional symptoms. It is diagnosed by identifying the symptoms and checking the medical history of the patient. It is then treated using depression drugs, which balance the functioning of neurotransmitters, such as serotonin, in the brain and controlling the mood and emotions of the patient. These drugs can assist in relieving the signs of anxiety, seasonal affective disorder and dysthymia.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), depression is one of the leading causes of disability and has impacted more than 264 million people across the globe. The increasing prevalence of mental disorders, such as social anxiety and depression, represents one of the key factors propelling the depression drugs market growth. Apart from this, with the surge in the cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), there is a considerable degree of fear, worry and concern in the population. Moreover, as governments of various countries have imposed complete lockdown and are promoting the adoption of social distancing measures, the everyday routine of a significant portion of the population has been altered, which, in turn, has negatively impacted the mental health of individuals. This trend has emerged as another major growth-inducing factor boosting the sales of depression drugs. Furthermore, the emergence of novel techniques for the development of antidepressants with minimal side-effects and long-term results, in confluence with the increasing acceptance of new medications, is anticipated to impel the market growth in the upcoming years.
