Datamonitor Healthcare CNS Disease Analysis: Depression

December 16, 2020

The drug market for depression is projected to expand in the next 10 years, propelled by a growing patient caseload and uptake of new products approved for indications beyond major depressive disorder (MDD), including post-partum depression (PPD), treatment-resistant depression (TRD), and suicidal ideation.

The primary distinguishing factor in the depression market is a drug’s ability to satisfy unmet needs. The latest market entrants, Spravato and Zulresso, have appeared highly attractive in their capacity to fulfill needs through their approvals for difficult-to-treat patient populations coupled with their refreshing first-in-class mechanisms. Novelty in mechanism of action is a key differentiator that has finally reached the depression market after decades of stagnated innovation, since long-standing standard-of-care drug classes have been inadequate in treating depression. Traditional therapies may take four to six weeks to produce clinically meaningful effects, and refractory depression persists.
