Postpartum Depression Treatment Market - Growth, Future Prospects, And Competitive Analysis, 2018-2026

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists states that around 5%–25% of pregnant women experience postpartum depression in America. This growing prevalence is what primarily contributes to the lucrativeness of this market. Rising awareness among women with respect to postpartum depression has further catalyzed the market's growth. Growing research activities among leading industries in developing suitable pharmacological treatment options increases the market's attractiveness and the inclination of women toward timely treatment.

Antidepressants are prescribed for this condition at controlled dosages. No targeted therapy for postpartum depression has yet been approved owing to its complexity associated with lactating mothers. SAGE-547 (brexanolone), a phase 3 molecule, and SAGE-217, a phase 2 molecule, of SAGE Therapeutics, Inc. (Hummingbird Program), are being developed for the treatment of postpartum depression. In its phase, three trials, SAGE-547 (brexanolone) achieved positive primary results of a reduction in the HAM-D (Hamilton Depression Rating Scale) score compared to the placebo. A reduction in depressive symptoms within 30 days was observed during this trial. Approval of brexanolone would catalyze the overall postpartum depression treatment market in the forecast period from 2018 to 2026, as it would be the first approved targeted drug therapy for postpartum depression.

North America accounted for the largest market share in 2017 and continues its dominance through 2026 as well. North America witnessed a high number of teenage pregnancy cases, which is one of the primary reasons causing postpartum depression. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a birth rate of 22.3 per 1000 women aged 15–19 years was reported. This growing incidence facilitates the overall market growth in North America. Asia Pacific projects sluggish growth in the postpartum depression treatment market during the forecast period due to a lack of awareness about the condition and lower patient acceptance of psychiatric conditions.

Suitable diagnosis for postpartum depression is one of the major unmet needs which could restrain the overall market growth. Additionally, the unacceptance and negligence of postpartum depression among patients could also have a negative impact on the market's growth.
