Loss of Patents to Restrain Global Market

Depression is an indication where a patient feels down in the dumps, miserable, unhappy, blue, or sad. For short period of time, many people may feel this way at a time or another. True clinical depression is when a patient feels frustrated, angry, lost, and sad on a daily basis for a long period of time. Increase in prevalence of major depression disorders is projected to drive the market during the forecast period. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), the U.S. adult population of approximately 10.3 million had at least one major depressive disorder episode with huge impairment. The population accounts for 4.3% of all adults in the country. Higher prevalence was observed among female adults at 8.5% as compared to 4.8% among male adults. The highest prevalence of major depression disorder episode was observed among people aged 18 to 25 at 10.9%.

Atypical Antipsychotics to Lose Market Share

The global depression drugs market has been segmented based on drug class, disease type, distribution channel, and region. In terms of drug class, the market has been categorized into atypical antipsychotics, serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, central nervous system (CNS) stimulant, and others. The atypical antipsychotics segment leads the market and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period, followed by serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor.

Based on disease type, the global depression drugs market has been classified into major depressive disorders, schizophrenia and bipolar I disorder, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor induced, and others.

Online Pharmacies to Gain Market Share

Based on distribution channel, the global depression drugs market has been segmented into online pharmacies, hospital pharmacies, and retail pharmacies. The retail pharmacies segment held significant market share in 2017, and is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period. This large market share is attributed to rise in prevalence of major depression disorders across the world and increase in preference of depressed patients to purchase from retail pharmacies. However, the hospital pharmacies and retail pharmacies segments are anticipated to lose market share during the forecast period owing to exclusivity expiry of depression drugs.
