The global attention deficit hyperactivity disorder market size was valued at USD 16.4 billion in 2018 and is estimated to exhibit a CAGR of 6.4% over the forecast period. Product launches across the globe, approval of new drugs, and increased research and development activities are likely to drive the market.
Increase in awareness about mental health among the general population and governments is expected to propel the ADHD market. Rising number of people suffering from a host of mental health disorders, including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, has caught the attention of governments around the world, forcing them to take necessary steps to address this condition. In 2016, the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services awarded up to USD 54 million to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) for the next four years to address the needs of individuals with serious mental illnesses.
Similarly, NHS England set up a five-year plan for mental health in 2016. The government committed to implementing this plan by 2020–2021, investing USD 1.27 billion into the project. Therefore, government support, along with growing awareness among various parties, is anticipated to boost the market.
Approval and commercialization of new drugs by market players is also expected to play a crucial role in driving market growth over the coming years. For instance, in August 2017, Shire launched FDA-approved MYDAYIS for the treatment of ADHD patients of the age 13 and older.

By type of drug, the market has been segmented into stimulant and non-stimulant drugs. Stimulant drugs include Amphetamine, Methylphenidate, Lisdexamfetamine, Dexmethylphenidate. Non-stimulant drugs include Atomoxetine, Guanfacine, Clonidine, and Bupropion.
The stimulant segment accounted for the largest share in the ADHD market in 2018 and is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period. This can be attributed to high demand for these drugs due to their effectiveness in treating symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, ongoing clinical trials, and government support for the use of stimulants in the treatment of mental health disorders. In April 2016, Tris Pharma, Inc. announced the launch of its FDA-approved liquid ADHD medication Dyanavel XR (amphetamine), which is used to treat patients over the age of six.
Non-stimulants are expected to exhibit the fastest growth rate during the forecast period due to their long-lasting effect compared to stimulants. The fact that these drugs present no risk of substance abuse is also a key factor boosting segment growth. Furthermore, an increasing number of market players have been investing in the development of non-stimulant drugs for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, which is driving the segment.
Demographic Insights
On the basis of demographics, the attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) market has been bifurcated into children (2-17 years of age) and adults (aged 18 and above). The adult segment held the largest share in the market in 2018 and this can be attributed to a large patient population. According to ADD Health and Wellness Centers, Inc., attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder affects more than 4.0% of the adult population in U.S. According to the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), in 2015, there were 17.2 million individuals who used stimulants, of which 1.8 million were youth (age 12-17) and 4.9 million were adults (age 18-25).
Distribution Channel Insights
Based on distribution channel of ADHD drugs, the market has been segmented into hospital and retail pharmacies. In 2018, retail pharmacy accounted for the maximum market share. Increasing number of prescriptions and rise in patient care initiatives by retail pharmacies have driven the segment.
