Rising number of drug-treated patients for ADHD therapy is expected to drive the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) treatment market


According to the National Institute of Health estimates in 2015, the prevalence of ADHD is higher by 30% in boys, with 5.1 million children being diagnosed with ADHD globally in 2013 and the number expected to rise to 18 million by 2020. Increasing awareness of ADHD symptoms among patients and physicians, opinion-based diagnosis owing to the absence of standard diagnostic tests is expected to boost the revenue growth of ADHD therapeutics market in the forecast period. Additionally, rise in the ADHD therapeutics market is driven by increasing use of additives and preservatives in diet, value systems impacting quality of births, and changing lifestyles. However, restricted availability of non-stimulants ADHD drugs and existence of multiple conditions like schizophrenia or depression in children leads to underdiagnoses of ADHD in various geographies including Middle East and Africa, thereby restraining the growth of the market over the forecast period.
