New York, April 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- announces the release of the report "Antidepressants Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Implications And Growth To 2030" -

The global antidepressants market is expected to decline from $26.25 billion in 2020 to $15.87 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -39.5%.

The market is expected to reach $21.28 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 7.6%.

The antidepressants market consists of sales of antidepressants and related services that are used in retail pharmacies, hospitals and clinics.Antidepressants are drugs that can help to alleviate depressive symptoms, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or moderate persistent depressive, as well as other conditions.

The antidepressant medications available include the antagonists of SSRIs or selective serotonin reuptake, MAOIs or monoamine oxidase inhibitors, tricyclic antidepressants, tetracyclic antidepressants and others.

Globally, rising cases of mental health disorders are the key factor in the growth of the antidepressant drug industry, as many customers rely on these medications to counter depression, anxiety disorder and other mental diseases.Antidepressant medications are used in conditions such as depression, OCD, childhood enuresis, major depressive disorder, severe anxiety disorder, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and social anxiety disorder.

Globally, the percentage of people with depression varies from 2% to 6% and the elderly are at greater risk of depression compared to other age groups.According to WHO, in 2020, about 264 million people of all ages worldwide suffered from depression.

Therefore, rising cases of mental health disorders is expected to drive the growth of the antidepressant market.

The side-effects of antidepressant drugs is a key factor hampering the growth of the antidepressant market.For instance, the antidepressants Lexapro (escitalopram) and Celexa (citalopram), both are used to treat depression and Lexapro also helps for treating anxiety.

Lexapro and Celexa can cause side effects common to others which include nausea, sleeplessness, sweating, dry mouth and drowsiness.Celexa and Lexapro are both at risk for even more serious side effects including excessive bleeding, seizures and vision issues.

Therefore, the side-effects of antidepressant drugs is expected to limit the growth of the antidepressant market.

The antidepressants market has also surged during the covid-19 outbreak.The increasing number of cases and fatalities is affecting the mental health by elevating anxiety worldwide.

It makes the brain more adaptable and capable of developing new pathways and helps people to create more optimistic thoughts and behaviors.In 2019, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a new ketamine depression drug esketamine which is one half of the ketamine compound.

The drug must be administered as a nasal spray and patients must be taking another antidepressant at the same time. Also, the drugs can be prescribed to only those patients who have (unsuccessfully) tried two antidepressants before.
