Recent studies have stated that antipsychotics are one of the top-selling and most widely prescribed drugs for managing psychotic conditions in the United States.

Global estimates suggest that over 1.25% of the global population suffers from psychosis and related disorders. This translates into a potential market of about 7.5 mn people as target consumers for antipsychotic drugs. Although the potential consumer base for the market is relatively much smaller than that for diseases such as cancer and diabetes, the high costs of antipsychotic drugs make the market one with promising returns. The market holds immense growth promise for future years as the patient pool of psychotic conditions rises at an alarming rate across the globe. The introduction of newer antipsychotic compounds and the vast funds poured in for research and development activities are also expected to have a significant positive impact on the overall development of the market in the near future.
However, the market is expected to bear the brunt of the concerning rise in cases of over prescription of these drugs even for routine complaints such as insomnia and the increased awareness regarding the severe drawbacks as well as chances of addiction associated with these drugs. The issues have been known to be more intense in developed economies such as North America and a significant rise in strict regulations observing stronger control on the prescription of these drugs and misleading advertisements has been seen in the past few years. The impending patent expirations of several blockbuster drugs and the threat of cheap generics is also adding to worries of companies operating in the global antipsychotic drugs market.
