Anxiety Disorders Therapeutics Market is Forecast to Show Steady Growth until 2017

GlobalData estimates that the global anxiety disorders therapeutics market was valued at $3,698m in 2010, and is forecast to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3% over the next seven years, to reach $5,689m by 2017. This steady growth is primarily attributed to only one product launch for generalized anxiety disorder, disease awareness and alternate treatment options other than pharmacotherapy.

Current Treatment Options are Moderately Successful in Meeting Market Demand

GlobalData’s research indicates that the current market is well served by FDA (Food and Drug Administration)-approved drugs, off label drugs and alternative therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy. Patients with the symptoms of anxiety disorders tend to depend more on alternative therapies such as cognitive behavioral therapy instead of medication. The current treatment options have moderate safety and efficacy. This indicates that the anxiety disorders therapeutics market has treatment options which are currently satisfying patients but that the treatment rates and awareness of anxiety disorders is low.

Strong Pipeline Candidates are Expected to Intensify Future Competition

GlobalData found that there are 54 products in the different stages of development. Lu AA21004, currently in Phase III, is the most promising products in the late stage pipeline. Drugs in the pipeline have shown encouraging response rates in pretreated patients and have great potential in the anxiety disorders therapeutics market. The pipeline candidates are mainly concentrated in Phase II of clinical development. These products are expected to meet some of the unmet needs of the market. They may also lead to an intensely competitive market. In summary, the global anxiety disorders therapeutics market is heading towards a highly competitive landscape.

Current Treatment Options Leave Moderate level of Unmet Need

The anxiety disorders therapeutics market has moderate unmet needs. This is due to lack of awareness among physicians and patients, and low diagnosis and treatment rates. The anxiety disorders therapeutics market has many FDA-approved therapies available for treatment. The therapies which are available for the treatment of anxiety have shown moderate efficacy and safety profiles, which lead to moderate unmet need. The market is wide open for novel entrants to fulfill the unmet need of the anxiety disorders therapeutics market.
