Anxiety and Depression Treatment Market Overview

The global market for anxiety and depression treatment products was valued at $17,770.9 million in 2020, which is projected to progress at a CAGR of 3.3% during the forecast period (2021–2030). The major factors responsible for the growth of the market include growing geriatric population, rising awareness about mental diseases and their treatment, and increasing number of product approvals.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, governments of several countries, worldwide, have implemented strong measures, such as lockdowns and social distancing, to ensure health threats. Quite evidently, manufacturers across the world, including those of anxiety and depression treatment products, have been negatively impacted by the economic crisis triggered by the pandemic. Additionally, the supply of raw materials has been severely affected, with the restrictions imposed by the governments on domestic and international trade, which leads to the disruption in the supply chain. Thus, it has further affected the production of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and raw materials for such drugs and devices, which has hampered the growth of the anxiety and depression treatment market.

Anxiety and Depression Treatment Market Outlook

Due to Increasing Product Launches, Drugs Category Dominated the Market

Based on product type, the drugs category held larger share in the anxiety and depression treatment market in 2020, and it is also expected to retain its position in upcoming years. This is majorly due to the increasing number of product launches, initiatives taken by private and public health institutions to spread awareness about mental diseases, and research projects for mental disorders.

Major Depressive Disorder Category To Witness Fastest Growth, Owing to Large Number of Depressive Disorder Cases

Based on disorder type, the major depressive disorder category is expected to witness the fastest growth during forecast period in the market for anxiety and depression drugs. This can be mainly attributed to the rise in number of major depressive disorder cases, coupled with growth in public awareness on this issue, and surge in frequency of screening by individuals for better mental health.

Due to High Patient Influx, Hospital Pharmacies Category Led the Market

Based on distribution channel, the hospital pharmacies category held the largest share in the anxiety and depression drugs market in 2020, and it is expected to maintain the lead in the coming years. The high sales of anxiety and depression treatment products via this channel are mainly due to the increasing patients visits to look for professional help for their degrading mental health.

North America Accounted for Largest Market Share, Owing to Rising Incidence of Mental Disorders

Anxiety and Depression Treatment Market Drivers

Increasing Aging Population Is Boosting the Market Growth

With the growing age, individuals go through a number of stress conditions. Some of which are common to all age groups, while some are old-age specific such as loss in capabilities to function properly. In addition, the elder people experience reduced socioeconomic status with retirement, which worsen the situation as it leads to isolation and loneliness. Thus, the older people are more vulnerable toward mental disorders, such as anxiety and depression. Thus, the rising cases of anxiety and depression in elderly population, across the world, would help the anxiety and depression treatment market growth.

Growing Awareness About Mental Diseases and their Treatment Driving the Market

The awareness about mental diseases has increased across the world, owing to the increased initiatives taken by private and public healthcare institutions. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared 10th October as the World Mental Health Day, in order to increase awareness, lessen the stigma, provide access to services, offer different treatment options, and support for mental health and related problems. Similarly, the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), a mental health organization involved in treatment, support, research, and awareness about mental illness, was established in 1979 in the U.S., to provide support and psycho education to improve the lives of people suffering from mental illnesses. Thus, such initiatives are propelling the demand for anxiety and depression treatment products.
