The 12-month prevalent cases of major depressive disorder (MDD) is expected to increase from 53.37 million cases in 2019 to 55.36 million cases in 2029, at an annual growth rate (AGR) of 0.37% across the eight major markets *8MM. Out of the 8MM, Spain is expected to grow at an annual growth rate (AGR) of 1.23% (2019–2029), followed by Italy (0.73%) and the US (0.53%).
GlobalData’s latest report notes that the major drivers for the upward trend of 12-month total prevalent cases of MDD in the 8MM over the next decade may be driven by changes in the population demographics of these markets, rather than an increase or decrease in the 12-month total prevalence of MDD.
Suneedh Manthri, Associate Project Manager of Epidemiology at GlobalData, comments: “MDD is widely recognized as a mood disorder that may lead to a variety of emotional and physical problems. Little is known about the etiology of MDD; however, research suggests that there may be combinations of genetic, biological, environmental and psychological factors that potentially increase the risk of MDD.”
In Spain and Italy, the elderly population are at a higher risk for MDD compared to that in the rest of the 8MM. Therefore, the aging population in Spain and Italy contribute to the increase in the 12-month prevalent cases of MDD in these markets.
The guidelines for MDD diagnosis have changed over time and are becoming broader and more inclusive, so some persons who would not have been diagnosed under the previous guidelines would now be diagnosed with MDD. This epidemiology analysis used the DSM-5 as the diagnostic criteria for 12-month total prevalence of MDD.
*8MM: The US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, Japan, and Canada.
Major depressive disorder (MDD) Epidemiology Report and Model provide an overview of the risk factors and the global and historical trends for MDD in the eight major markets (8MM: US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Japan, and Canada).
The report includes a 10-year epidemiological forecast for the 12-month total prevalent cases of MDD based on the American Psychiatric Association’s (APA) Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders Fifth Edition (DSM-5) criteria. The 12-month total prevalent cases of MDD (including diagnosed and undiagnosed) are further segmented by age, sex, and severity (mild, moderate, and severe).
This epidemiology forecast for MDD is supported by historical data obtained from peer-reviewed articles and population-based studies. The forecast methodology was kept consistent across the 8MM to allow for a meaningful comparison of the forecast total prevalent cases of MDD across these markets.
The MDD epidemiology report and model were written and developed by Masters- and PhD-level epidemiologists.
The Epidemiology Report is in-depth, high quality, transparent and market-driven, providing expert analysis of disease trends in the 8MM.
The Epidemiology Model is easy to navigate, interactive with dashboards, and epidemiology-based with transparent and consistent methodologies. Moreover, the model supports data presented in the report and showcases disease trends over a 10-year forecast period using reputable sources.
