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.

The antidepressants market covered in this report is segmented by product into selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI); serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI); tricyclic antidepressant (TCA); monoamine oxidase inhibitor (MAOI); other products. It is also segmented by drug class into monoamine oxidase inhibitors; serotonin antagonist and reuptake inhibitors; serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors; selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors; tricyclic antidepressants; others and by depressive disorder into major depressive disorder; obsessive-compulsive disorder; generalized anxiety disorder; panic disorder; others.

In May 2018, Allergan, an Ireland based company, focused on developing, manufacturing and commercializing branded pharmaceutical, device, biologic, surgical and regenerative medicine products for patients around the world acquired Aptinyx for an unclosed amount. Through this acquisition Allergan gained important insights into NMDA receptor modulation as a potential therapeutic approach for depression. Aptinyx, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company focused on the discovery and development of transformative therapies for challenging neurologic disorders.

The side-effects and patent expiry of antidepressant drugs is a key factor hampering the growth of the antidepressant market. The antidepressants are Lexapro (escitalopram) and Celexa (citalopram), both of which are used to treat depression, Lexapro also helps for anxiety. Lexapro and Celexa can cause side effects common to others which includes 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. In 2018 the labels of the medications contained a black box warning for an increased suicide risk. Therefore, the side-effects and patent expiry of antidepressant drugs is expected to limit the growth of the antidepressant market.

The treatment for resistant depression is a key trend in the antidepressant market. Ketamine is the new treatment that is used for anesthesia during surgery, stimulates the development of glutamate, and prompts the brain to form new neural connections. It makes the brain more adaptable and capable of developing new pathways and helps people to create more optimistic thoughts and behaviours. In 2018, Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved ketamine, an anesthetic that has made waves for its surprising antidepressant effect. Since treatment with esketamine may be of great benefit to patients with treatment-resistant depression (meaning conventional therapies have not benefited them), the FDA has speeded up the approval process to make it available more rapidly.

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 etc. 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), social anxiety disorder, etc. Globally, the percentage of people with depression varies from 2% to 6% and the elderly are at greater risk of depression relative to other age groups. According to WHO, in 2020, about 264 million people of all ages worldwide suffer from depression. Therefore, rising cases of mental health disorders is expected to drive the growth of the antidepressant market.
