Global Psychedelic Drugs Market to Witness Double-digit Revenue Growth as Mental Health becomes Priority

The global psychedelic drugs market is all set to exhibit robust revenue growth during the forecast years from 2021 to 2026. The market is poised to benefit from the high prevalence of mental health diseases and conditions that are on the rise and a growing pool of patients with unmet treatment needs. Fairfield Market Research indicates that the global psychedelic drugs market revenue is anticipated to rise at a healthy pace of 14.5% CAGR during the period as the market reaches US$6330.0 Mn by 2026 from US$3210.0 Mn in 2021.

Mental health disorders result in thousands of deaths, creating a severe economic and productivity loss worldwide. Reported deaths in the U.S. due to drug overdose reached almost 72,000 in 2019 wherein opioids accounted for more than two-thirds of deaths. As per a 2011 Harvard study, the global cost of mental health conditions in 2010 was estimated at US$2.5 trillion and the cost is projected to surge to US$6.0 trillion by 2030. According to Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, Canadian direct and indirect economic costs of mental disorders is C$51 Bn.

Positive Evidence of Psychedelic Drugs Affecting Mental Health Helps Market in Greater Ways 

Mental diseases viz. depression, PTSD, anxiety, schizophrenia, and drug and alcohol dependence have become a global concern. Globally, 971 million people suffer from a mental or substance use disorder. The U.S. alone witnesses more than 80,000 emergency department psychiatric drug adverse events per year. According to December 2020 WHO statistics, more than 264 million people of all ages suffer from depression. A 2007 Harvard Medical School study found that 19.1% of adults in the U.S. had an anxiety disorder as of 2001-2003. Data further suggest that specific phobias are the most commonly occurring anxiety disorders that affect more than 19 million adults in the U.S. These statistics put together are expected to generate a demand for psychedelic drugs as diagnosis, therapy, and mental health awareness programmes gain emphasis at individual and institutional levels.

Since 2015, seven new neuropsychiatric drugs have been approved, which is less than 10% as compared to the field of oncology. Superior methods of clinical trial and exceptional evidence gathering for a wide range of psychological disorders have trumped traditional treatments for mental health conditions such as depression. Psychedelic medicines seem to act fast and with precision to affect depression with the desired outcome. Furthermore, as these drugs are well-tolerated, analysts anticipate they will be in a greater demand to treat patients.

On the flip side, inadequate treatment options with poor uptake and adverse events are hindering psychedelic drugs adoption. Existing medicines have limited benefits, are ineffective with intolerable side effects, which sometimes leads to relapses.

Clinical Trials and Capital Investments Augment Psychedelic Drugs Market

Positive clinical outcomes coupled with capital investment is expected to present lucrative commercial opportunities to the global psychedelic drugs market. In various clinical trials, psychedelics are demonstrating both safety and efficacy across geographies. In one of the Phase II trials of 107 patients who had PTSD for an average of over 17 years, 56% showed no signs of the affliction after one session of MDMA-assisted therapy. A combination of psilocybin and cognitive therapy has helped 80% of another study’s participants to abstain from cigarettes for at least six months. The therapy looks promising as compared to 35% for the most effective available smoking-cessation drug, varenicline.

There are over 200 biotech companies in North America and Europe focused on the psychedelic space. MindMed, Compass Pathways, and Atai Life Sciences were recently listed on a major U.S. stock exchange. Osmind, a health data and analytics platform for mental health providers offering psychedelic treatments picked up US$2 Mn in seed funding led by General Catalyst. Thus, the global psychedelic drugs market is witnessing massive investments to aid research, which will shape market growth.

Psychedelic Drugs Offer Exceptional Response to Mental Health Crisis due to COVID-19 Pandemic  

Incidence of mental diseases has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic worldwide. A PEW Research Centre, U.S., conducted a survey of adults in February 2021, revealing that 21% of the U.S. adults are experiencing high levels of psychological distress, including 32% aged 18-29 and 31% with low incomes. Percentage of the U.S. adults experiencing symptoms of depression and anxiety rose from 11% in 2019 to 42% end of 2020. Forrester estimated consumers to make around 480 million virtual visits for healthcare in 2020 with almost 38% for mental healthcare. Demand for virtual mental healthcare such as therapy and counselling is estimated to total 138 million visits by end of 2021.

High Cost and Complicated Reimbursement Processes Hinders Market Growth

Many of the existing clinical trials involve both a drug and drug combination and a component of therapy. This bundled treatment option pushes prices in the upper direction. In the U.S., it is likely that this will be regulated through the FDA’s Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategies (REMS) system, which forces specific requirements in drug administration. It has a significant cost implication for the strictly regulated therapy component.

On the other hand, some therapies require skilled and experienced therapists, such as COMPASS, which needs a five-tier therapist training program. The expense of training and the accreditation of therapists is at a premium. The length of therapy sessions varies between different providers and by the type of psychedelic; from four to six hours. It is significantly longer than typical analogous talking therapies lasting for one hour per session. So, the cost of administering these sessions, in specially designed rooms, is much higher.

While drug reimbursement pathways worldwide are well laid out and sufficiently funded, mental wellness therapies are the bone of contention. For drug plus therapy combinations, the processes of receiving reimbursement are complicated and equally fragmented in many countries. This typically is due to the different sources of funding and reimbursement codes, for both the drug and the services.

North America to Retain Market Dominance till the End of Forecast Period

The global psychedelic drugs market study by Fairfield Market Research finds that North America remains the largest contributor in value terms due to an upswing in successful clinical trials, positive regulatory approvals, capital investment inflow and growing public awareness in the region. North America contributes to half of the global psychedelic drugs market revenue and will reach US$3184.0 Mn in 2026.

Also, biopharmaceutical giants that have largely scaled-down psychiatric R&D expenditure may explore organic (new product development) or inorganic (partnering, acquisition, licensing) avenues to re-enter the space. Recent IPOs and notable results from clinical trials are anticipated to create tailwinds for the psychedelics market growth in the region.
