Global Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) Treatment Market

Major depressive disorder (MDD), also known as clinical depression, is a mental health disorder which affects mood, behavior, as well as appetite and sleep. The exact cause of MDD is not known; however, several factors that can potentially increase its risk include a combination of genes and stress that affect the brain’s chemistry and reduce its ability to maintain mood stability. Hormonal imbalance, alcohol or drug abuse, certain medical conditions such as cancer or hypothyroidism, and some adverse side effects of medications such as steroids, can also lead to MDD. Changing lifestyles, work pressure, alcohol abuse, and other similar aspects have resulted in an increased prevalence of MDD, which is expected to drive the global market growth during the forecast period. According to an article published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information in 2015, MDD is the most common psychiatric disorder found in India and the lifetime prevalence of MDD is around 10% to 25% in women, and 5% to 12% in men.

Increasing FDA approvals for new drugs is expected to drive the global MDD treatment market growth

Major depressive disorder treatment market is witnessing a dynamic change, where patents for drugs such as Cymbalta and Abilify has expired recently, and revenue generated from these drugs plummeted with the introduction of generics. Therefore, approval of new drugs such as Levomilnacipran, Brintellix, and Rexulti (brexpiprazole) is a primary driver for this market growth. FDA approved Levomilnacipran — a new serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) — for major depressive disorder (MDD) in adults in 2013. In the same year, Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited and H. Lundbeck A/S announced the FDA approval for Brintellix (vortioxetine) for the treatment of adults with major depressive disorder (MDD). Rexulti (brexpiprazole) tablets received approval from FDA as an add-on treatment to an antidepressant medication to treat adults with major depressive disorder (MDD) in July, 2015. These approvals are expected to provide more option to patients suffering from MDD, and this is expected to support the major depressive disorder treatment market growth.
