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


The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists states that around 5%-25% pregnant women experience postpartum depression in America. This growing prevalence primarily contribute to the lucrativeness of this market. Rising awareness among women with respect to postpartum depression has further catalysed the market growth. Growing research activities among leading industries in developing suitable pharmacological treatment option increases the market attractiveness and inclination of women towards 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) is being developed for the treatment of postpartum depression. SAGE-547 (brexanolone) achieved positive primary results of reduction in HAM-D (Hamilton Depression Rating Scale) score compared to placebo in its phase 3 trials. A reduction in depressive symptoms within 30 days was observed during this trial. Approval of brexanolone would catalyse 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 largest market share in 2017 and continues its dominancy through 2026 as well. North America witnessed 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 postpartum depression treatment market during the forecast period due to lack of awareness on the condition and lower patient acceptance on psychiatric conditions.

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