Additionally, GAD is caused by various factors, including genetics, brain chemistry, and environmental factors such as trauma and stressful events, family history, and life experiences. The disorder develops gradually and can occur anytime during one's life, though the risk is most significant between childhood and middle age. GAD is diagnosed when a person has three or more symptoms and has been worrying excessively about everyday problems for more than six months. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), anxiety disorders affect more than 15% of the European population. Moreover, according to the CDC, women are more likely than men to have a condition. Psychotherapy, which teaches a person different ways of reacting and thinking in different life situations, is generally preferred by GAD patients over medication.

Global General Anxiety Disorder Market Dynamics

DriversEconomic Burden of Mental Disorders

Mental disorders are becoming more common in adults and children due to the enormous financial and emotional burden they place on individuals, families, and society as a whole. According to the WHO, in 2017, anxiety disorders hold a 3.4% share of the global population with various diseases, around 264 million people. This will eventually have a financial impact. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the cost of mental health problems in developed countries is estimated to be between 3% and 4% of GNP. As a result, the government's strategy to reduce the economic burden of such disorders is likely to drive product demand, ensuring timely anxiety and depression treatment.

RestraintsSide effects of medications

Side effects from medications, such as habit formation, dry mouth, and nausea, may limit the market growth. Treatment of affected neurological cells with high drug doses generally causes harm to normal body cells. Weight gain, blurred vision, dizziness, nausea, and other side effects are common among patients. As a result, the adverse side effects of drugs for general anxiety disorders limit the market's growth. Another factor impeding market expansion is the widening gap between the demand for treatment and the available resources. According to the WHO report, between 44 percent and 70 percent of patients in developed countries do not receive treatment. At the same time, the gap is even wider in developing countries, at close to 90 percent.

OpportunitiesThe rising pipeline drugs in the market

In the coming years, the rising pipeline drugs in the GAD market will create a lucrative opportunity for market growth. Globally, research and development for advanced patient care for mental health disorders are speeding up. For instance, Vilazodone, an Abbvie drug, is a new antidepressant with a selective serotonin (5-HT) reuptake inhibitor and partial agonist profile for the 5-HT1A receptor, so it's referred to as a serotonin partial agonist-reuptake inhibitor (SPARI). Vilazodone's SPARI properties have been speculated to have three potential benefits, including a faster onset of action, greater efficacy, and better tolerability. Innovative experiments that resulted in combination therapies with new or existing drug molecules have increased the number of GAD treatment candidates in the pipeline.
