At its core, ADHD is a disorder that makes it difficult for the person to pay attention, keep still, and control one’s impulses. While it is normal for children to have difficulty paying attention and staying still, people with ADHD never grow out of these symptoms and remain in that state well into adulthood. This can cause difficulty in school, as an inability to pay attention can result in the person falling behind in schoolwork, as well as at home, as people with ADHD tend to be very impulsive and forgetful. Daydreaming excessively, forgetting things, and making careless mistakes that could have been avoided simply by paying attention are considered to be classic symptoms of ADHD. Increasing awareness regarding ADHD is the primary driver for the global ADHD therapeutics market over the forecast period, as many parents still remain unaware of the condition, let alone of the possibility of curing it through medication.
The growth of the ADHD Therapeutics Market primarily driven by the increasing usage of additives and preservatives in children’s diet, evolving lifestyles and changing value systems impact the quality of births, growing adoption of diagnostic guidelines with minimal threshold for diagnosis of ADHD in regions like South America and Europe, and prevalence of the disorder among children between the age group of 4 to 17 years.

Geographically, the global ADHD therapeutics market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and Rest of the World. Of these, North America and Europe are likely to be the two largest regional markets for ADHD therapeutics over the forecast period. The presence of a highly developed neurological research network and easy availability of advanced therapeutics are the key drivers for the North America and Europe markets for ADHD therapeutics. The APAC ADHD therapeutics market has been a distant third in the global charts, as children with ADHD in APAC countries are often not treated for the same due to the absence of awareness about ADHD. However, this situation is changing, resulting in steady growth of the APAC ADHD therapeutics market
