ADHD: immature adult market continues to offer greatest commercial potential

The ADHD market was valued at $3.85 billion in 2007, and is set to increase in value over the next 10 years at a CAGR of 1.2%. With an estimated patient population of 25 million across the seven major markets in 2008, the highly prevalent, yet largely untapped, adult ADHD population continues to represent an attractive target patient subgroup. Manufacturers would benefit from lobbying national medical agencies into developing much-needed diagnostic and treatment guidelines, in order to increase the awareness of proper diagnostic practices and increase the diagnosis rates of ADHD in adults.
