Advancement in market

December 2022 – A new neuromodulation technique with the disruptive potential to treat major depression is low-intensity focused ultrasound (LIFU), which enables millimetre-level precision non-invasive stimulation of the entire brain. This technique is based on the creation of focused ultrasonic waves, which are acoustic waves with a frequency higher than the 20 kHz threshold of human hearing. An ultrasonic beam can be delivered through the skull and concentrated in a specific brain area by attaching a pulse generator to an ultrasound transducer and an acoustic lens. The ultrasonic frequency is often chosen between 500 kHz and 1 MHz, which sets the spatial resolution to the millimetre range, similar to the ultrasound wavelength, to reduce attenuation through the skull. Even though MDD is still relatively new, early results are encouraging, particularly in reducing depression patients’ anxiety and low mood. Further technological advancements must strengthen the potential of LIFU for treating MDD.

Market Dynamics

Driver: increasing incidence of depression

Lack of access to fundamental human needs, including food, clean water, a place to live, sanitation, economic stability, and healthcare, are just a few examples of circumstances that raise the possibility of physical and mental health problems. Aside from that, modern life has become stressful due to fierce competition and packed schedules. The prevalence of anxiety and depressive illnesses has increased due to the contemporary lifestyle. Numerous elements have influenced this pattern. People are now more willing to identify and address their mental health openly due to increased awareness, infrastructure development that provides therapy, and a platform for sharing experiences. The rise in the number of unemployed will also impact the rising number of persons seeking to better their mental wellness.

Restraint: depression treatment is inaccessible and unaffordable for the majority of the population

The cost of medications has increased, owing the imbalance between supply and demand in the global depression treatment market -. The world’s wealthy people have access to and can afford these medicines. Even though they know their mental health, most people who need mental health services cannot afford the medications and therapies. The adverse side effects of several pharmaceuticals have made a sizable populace sceptical of the treatments, which will impede the market’s expansion.

Opportunities: increasing government expenditure on promoting mental well-being

Lack of access, cost, ignorance, and social limitations are contributing factors that have restricted the growth of the depression treatment market. Each of these factors is the focus of a multi-pronged strategy by the government to address these issues. The government initiatives aim to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness by raising awareness. The government collaborates with influential individuals who garner a massive following in the country to broaden its influence. As part of their programmes for mental wellness, they provide free consultations via toll-free phones and websites. The government provides subsidized or free medications, therapies, and other treatments to make therapies accessible and inexpensive. By providing telemedicine, they are utilizing technology to go the extra mile. Such a thorough and all-encompassing strategy will present rewarding prospects and propel the market’s growth.

Challenge: inadequate number of skilled professionals

The increase in individuals seeking treatment exceeds the number of qualified and trained professionals needed to identify and treat depression. The inadequately allocated healthcare funds are directed towards developing emergency and trauma care healthcare services that are not necessarily devoted to mental health, which explains the lack of human resources. Therefore, the private sector has filled this market gap in the mental health sector, and the costs of treatments are high, making it widely unavailable to the most-needy people. The most disadvantaged and marginalized demographic segment cannot afford the prices, which are outrageous given their income. Therefore, the lack of specialized mental health infrastructure, the dominance of profit-driven private businesses, the shortage of experienced specialists, the difficulty of accessing depression treatment, and its high cost will restrain the market’s expansion.
