Panic attacks are abrupt feelings of intense fear or discomfort that reach a peak within minutes. Common physical symptoms include chest pain, heart palpitations, sweating, and feelings of choking or smothering. These symptoms often mimic those of a heart attack. Panic attacks usually result from a complex interaction between genetic vulnerabilities and life experiences. Treatment options include medications, psychotherapy, support groups, and self-help methods.
Panic attacks can be effectively managed and treated with a comprehensive treatment plan. Two main drivers that are boosting the panic attack treatment market include –
Firstly, the increasing prevalence of anxiety disorders across the globe is a key growth factor. According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America’s report, around 6.8 million adults experience a panic disorder every year in the US alone. Effective treatment options help address this vast patient pool.
Secondly, pharmaceutical companies have a strong product pipeline to develop safer and more efficacious therapeutic options for panic disorder treatment. For example, in 2020 GlaxoSmithKline received FDA approval for its antidepressant Luvox CR, indicated for both obsessive-compulsive disorder and panic disorder. Such pipeline advances aid market revenues over the stipulated period.
The global panic attack treatment market is dominated by antidepressant drugs segment, which accounts for over 40% of the total market share. Antidepressant drugs such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are increasingly being used for treatment of panic attacks as they are highly effective in reducing the symptoms. Antidepressant medications work by balancing natural chemicals in the brain that are linked with mood. Within antidepressant drugs, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors sub-segment generates the highest revenue due to drugs like escitalopram and sertraline being the first line of medications prescribed by doctors to patients experiencing panic attacks.
