The "Global Antidepressant Drugs Market Forecast up to 2018-2024" report has been added to's offering.

Depression is a serious mental illness affecting more than 350 million people globally. This is also known as major depression disorder or unipolar depression. According to a report by the Psychiatric Association, nearly 14.8 million adults in the US are suffering from depression. An ageing population and the increasing prevalence of depression are the primary factors driving the global antidepressant drugs market growth. Supportive initiatives from the government and other organizations and increasing clinical trials will provide an opportunity for the market growth in the future.

At the global level, over 300 million people are estimated to suffer from depression, which is equivalent to 4.4% of the world's total population. Only less than 10% of the affected people are treated although there is the availability of branded and effective treatments for depression. The challenges for effective care include lack of capitals, unavailability of qualified health-care providers, and public stigma associated with mental disorders. Along with these, imprecise assessment of the condition is also a challenge faced globally.

The regions covered in the report are North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World (ROW). North America accounts for the largest share of the antidepressant drugs market, followed by Europe, Asia Pacific, and Rest of the World. North America alone occupies more than 30% of the market, with a significant contribution from the US to market growth.

Based on the drug class, the market is segmented into selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), norepinephrine-dopamine reuptake inhibitors (NDRI), serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), and others.
