As per the report, the incidence of trauma and improving treatment-seeking rates for post-traumatic stress disorder are expected to be prime factors driving the growth of the market. People who have suffered abuse as children or who have had other previous traumatic experiences are more likely to develop. According to the Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health Services (ADAMHS) Board PTSD affects 3.5% of U.S. adults, and approximately 8 million people in the U.S. are suffering from PTSD. Around 37% of these patients show severe symptoms.
Rates of PTSD are found to be higher in women than in men. As per the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), study women are four times more likely to develop PTSD than men. The lifetime prevalence of PTSD ranges from 6.1 to 9.2 percent in national samples of the general adult population in the United States and Canada, with one-year prevalence rates of 3.5 to 4.7 percent. A World Health Organization study found a lifetime prevalence of PTSD in upper-middle-income and lower-middle-income countries of 2.3 and 2.1 percent respectively. About 30 percent of the men and women who have spent time in war zones experience PTSD.
Furthermore, Meridian Market Consultants (MMC) Study identifies that psychotherapy is expected to contribute to the highest market share in the post-traumatic stress disorder therapy market. Cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) is found to be the most effective psychotherapy for post-traumatic stress disorder. CBT for PTSD is trauma-focused, i.e. the trauma events are the center of the treatment. Trauma-focused CBT is recommended for children and young adults. CBT treatments traditionally occur over 12 to 16 weeks. Eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) is a relatively new treatment that is found to relieve symptoms of PTSD. Medication with antidepressants is most commonly prescribed along with psychotherapy.
Most commonly prescribed antidepressants for PTSD are paroxetine, mirtazapine, amitriptyline, paroxetine, phenelzine, etc. Of these medications, only paroxetine and sertraline are licensed specifically for the treatment of PTSD. Antidepressants are also prescribed to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, and sleeping problems. PTSD treatment helps regain a sense of control over a patient’s life.
