Major Depressive Disorder Market Worth $8.1 Billion by 2020 (US, UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and Canada)


Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/01/2014 -- Research, the leading business intelligence provider, has released its latest research, ‘Major Depressive Disorder Therapeutics in Major Developed Markets to 2020 – New Launches and Modest Uptake of New Adjunctive Treatments to Offset Patent Expiries’, which provides insights into Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) in the major developed markets of the US, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and Canada. The report provides an estimation of market size for 2013, along with market forecast until 2020. It also covers disease epidemiology, treatment algorithms, treatment use patterns, in-depth analysis of the pipeline, clinical trial failure rate and deal analysis for MDD. The report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research and in-house analysis carried out by GBI Research’s team of industry experts. In 2013, the value of the MDD therapeutics market in major developed countries amounted to an estimated $8.7 billion. The market is forecast to decline at a negative Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 1.1% between 2013 and 2020 to reach $8.1 billion. The decline is due to key patent expiries of blockbuster drugs such as Lexapro, Cymbalta, Abilify, and Seroquel XR during the forecast period. The expected launch of few promising pipeline molecules such as brexpiprazole, cariprazine, ALKS-5461, GLYX-13 is likely to offset the key patent expiries. Recently launched Brintellix which has a novel multimodal mechanism of action and is the only drug which can provide improvements in cognitive function is expected to lead the market by the end of forecasting period.


The report analyzes treatment use patterns, market characterization, pipeline analysis and key licensing and co-development deals MDD in the major developed markets of the US, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Japan and Canada.
