  • According to a study published in Our World in Data, approximately 970 million people, globally, lived with a mental health disorder in 2018. This is marginally more than one in ten people, globally (10.7%). Increase in population suffering with psychological disorders is projected to fuel the global market during the forecast period.
  • According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the population of people aged 60 years and above is projected to rise from 900 million in 2015 to 2 billion in 2050. Usually, the geriatric population is at high risk of mental disorders. Hence, increase in geriatric population is anticipated to boost the global psychotropic drug market.
  • Government bodies and other public organizations are running programs to raise awareness about mental health. Furthermore, key players or manufacturers are actively focusing on the research and development of new psychological drugs for treatment in an effective and safe manner.
  • According to World Health Organization (WHO), nearly two-thirds of people with a known mental disorder never seek help from a health professional. Stigma, discrimination, and neglect prevent care and treatment from reaching people with mental disorders. This is estimated to restrain the psychotropic drugs market in the near future.
