The global postpartum depression market size reached USD 5.10 Billion in 2021 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 30.4% during the forecast period, according to latest analysis by Emergen Research. The rising awareness about the condition and its potential consequences on mothers and babies is expected to be a key factor driving the growth of the market. In addition, the increasing number of government initiatives to create awareness about postpartum depression is expected to support market growth. For instance, in May 2019, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched a national campaign, “Depression: Let’s Talk,” to raise awareness about depression and its importance in seeking help.

The high cost of treatment is expected to be a key challenge for market growth. In addition, the lack of awareness about postpartum depression in low- and middle-income countries is expected to restraint market growth.

Postpartum Depression (PPD) is a medical condition that can affect a woman after she gives birth. It is also commonly referred to as postnatal depression or perinatal depression. Symptoms of PPD can include feeling sad, anxious, hopeless, worthless, and guilty. Many women with PPD also have trouble sleeping and eating.

PPD affects up to 20% of women who give birth each year. It can occur anytime during the first year after childbirth, but is most common during the first three months postpartum. While PPD can happen to any woman, there are certain risk factors that may make a woman more likely to experience it. These include a history of depression or anxiety, lack of social support, stressful life events, and a difficult delivery.

Some Key Highlights From the Report

  • Hospitals segment accounted for a significantly revenue share in 2021 owing to rising number of initiatives by government and nongovernmental organizations to create awareness among people about the importance of early diagnosis and treatment of postpartum depression. According to National Institute of Mental Health, in 2017, around 15% of women in the U.S. suffer from postpartum depression which is likely to fuel the demand for postpartum depression treatments in hospitals.
  • Hormonal therapy segment is expected to register steady revenue CAGR during the forecast period due to  the wide range of therapeutic benefits associated with this type of treatment and its ability to control the chemical messengers in the brain.
  • According to WHO, prevalence of postpartum depression was 10.9% in high-income countries, 7.4% in middle-income countries, and 5.8% in low & middle-income countries in 2015. This indicates higher prevalence of postpartum depression in low & middle-income countries as compared to high-income countries.

  • According to National Institute of Mental Health, in 2015, prevalence of postpartum depression was estimated to be 15.9% in U.S. Therefore, high incidence rate of postpartum depression in U.S. is expected to support the market growth during the forecast period.
