Bipolar disorder is related to mental health and can be characterized as drastic changes in mood, energy levels, and ability to perform daily tasks. The mood typically shows two types of episodes – manic and depression. There are four types of bipolar disorders: Bipolar I, Bipolar II, Cyclothymic, and other specified and non-specified bipolar and related disorders. All these types show similar symptoms but the severity varies. Bipolar disorder can be treated with treatments such as mood stabilizers, antipsychotics, antidepressants, and anticonvulsants.

Global Bipolar Disorders Treatment Market Drivers

Key players in the global bipolar disorder treatment market are focusing on research and development of novel drugs that aid in the treatment of bipolar disorders. This in turn is expected to drive the global bipolar disorder market growth. For instance, in February 2019, Otsuka Holdings Co. Ltd. reported Phase III clinical trial evaluation of brexpiprazole for the treatment of manic attacks in bipolar disorder I. The study was conducted to confirm the effectiveness of brexpiprazole for a duration of 2-3 weeks, in double-blind and placebo-controlled trials. It was found that the drug was well tolerated by the patients.

Furthermore, in July 2018, a team of researchers from Novartis International AG studied on digital measurement tools for bipolar disorders so that accurate drug can be given for an effective treatment. Until now, these disorders are identified by conventional methods and no definitive tool is available, which tests the spinal fluid present in the brain. According to the researchers, these digital measurement tools may help in diagnosis of bipolar disorder and will increase the efficacy of drugs.

Moreover, intervention of medical adherence tools (such as electronic adherence monitoring devices) to increase treatment adherence in patients with bipolar disorders may improve outcomes in the treatment of bipolar disorder patients. It ensures that medication is properly taken and it is done so by ways such as psychoeducational and family communication interventions, cognitive behavior therapy, manipulating the packaging of the drugs, simplifying a dosage regimen with pill boxes, medication organizers, blister packaging, or coordinating dosage times with the daily activities of patients.

Therefore, increasing research and development of novel tools for diagnosis of bipolar disorders is expected to support the global bipolar disorders treatment market growth over the forecast period.
