Case in point is the usage of tricyclic antidepressants which has declined over the years due to the higher incidence of side effects compared to other drugs used for the treatment of bipolar disorder.
Besides, various government bodies of numerous nations are providing funds for research in the field of bipolar disorder, in addition to launching awareness campaigns for the elimination of the stigma associated with the condition. These campaigns also help improve the treatment as well as the adherence rates amongst the general populace. Moreover, scientific bodies along with medical institutions are also actively conducting research studies coupled with developing novel drugs and treatments for bipolar disorder. For instance, the John Hopkins University of Medicine and Salk Institute for Biological Studies in 2016, launched an initiative worth USD 15.4 million for the development of new studies and drug screening methods for bipolar disorder as well as schizophrenia.
But many drugs used for treating bipolar disorder have been associated with various side effects including addiction of the body to the drug. This factor could hinder the market growth to some extent in the coming years. However, advancement in technology is aiding the market growth, with the increasing use of smartphones, wearable devices and smartwatches, facilitating accurate detection of a patient’s mood and mental state. These devices also capture the behavioral, physiological, and environmental data accurately and effectively.
With the employment of product differentiation, there has been a favorable product differentiation scenario which augments the market position. In addition, a number of players in the market are striving to establish numerous USPs which could enable them to capture a more sizeable share of the market.
To illustrate, in December 2018, a voice analysis company named Cogito created Companion Mx; which was created to bring emotion-tracking technology to health care professionals.
