Global Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Therapeutics Market: Drivers and Restraints
The rising prevalence of PTSD is the primary factor driving the global PTSD therapeutics market. Globally, there are increasing cases of cross-border tensions and violence. To control such situations, military troops and police forces are deployed at sights of violence. This is leading to the development of PTSD among military personnel, which in turn is driving the demand for therapeutics for the treatment of this disorder. In addition, the increasing emphasis on rehabilitation programs for injured military personnel is working in favor of the growth of the market. Moreover, the growing number of road accidents, particularly in developing countries, is augmenting the market.
On the flip side, the serious side effects of certain drugs are leading to bad publicity and several lawsuits, which in turn is adversely affecting the growth of the market. Consumption of Zoloft and Paxil by pregnant women led to septal heart defects, miscarriage, delayed development, cranial defect, and persistent pulmonary hypertension (PPHN). However, the increasing research and development activities for understanding the mechanisms underlying PTSD is likely to pave way for new and safe therapeutics.
