Major Depressive Disorder Market Analysis, Forecast and Market Assessment to 2025

Press release   •   Feb 01, 2017 05:20 EST

Major depressive disorder (MDD) is one of the most common psychiatric diseases worldwide. It is characterized by single or recurrent major depressive episodes (MDEs), where patients can typically experience periods of depressed mood, loss of energy, abnormal cognition, anxiety and suicidal ideation. Similar to other neuropsychiatric disorders, MDD has a multifaceted and varied etiology, and remains poorly understood. The MDD market is crowded and competitive, with more than 30 products available for the treatment of patients, the majority of which are now available as inexpensive generics. The MDD market is therefore in a dynamic phase where patent expiries for historically top-selling products such as Eli Lillys Cymbalta and Otsuka/BMS Abilify have occurred, and recent launches of Lundbeck/Takedas Trintellix and Otsuka/Lundbecks Rexulti will be a significant driver of growth in the 7MM. Growth in the MDD market is also expected to be driven by the potential introduction of six promising late-stage pipeline products into the market during the forecast period, all of which are directed towards treatment-resistant patients, a significant unmet need.

The recent launch of Lundbeck/Takedas Trintellix (in 2014) will be the main driver of growth in these markets, as well as the release of four late-stage pipeline drugs during the forecast period. The pipeline drugs will expand the 5EU MDD market substantially from 2018 onwards. Increases in diagnosed prevalent cases of MDD will also drive market growth throughout the 5EU, driven by increased public awareness of depressive disorders, and an increase in the routine screening for depressive disorders.
