Stress Management Industry Expands During COVID-19 Woes—But Not Pills

Industry Boosted by Global Uncertainty and Fear

June 18, 2020

The global market for stress management treatments should reach $20.6 billion by 2024, growing 3.7% annually, according to the latest report by BCC Research, Stress Management Industry: Global Trends.

Trends that started long before the present pandemic in the stress management market—stalling growth in antidepressant medications; diminished stigma surrounding mental health; accelerated growth in non-pharmaceutical treatments and devices—are surging due to worldwide uncertainty and fear.

 Report Highlights

  • The device and non-pharmaceutical segment of the stress management treatments market—while still dwarfed by pharmaceuticals—will grow at more than triple the CAGR of the traditional medicine segment, at 9.3% annually.
  • Treatments such as transcranial stimulation and electroconvulsive therapy, as well as cognitive therapy interventions, can be remarkably effective for large populations of patients.
  • The prime market to aim for now is the moderately impaired, well-informed patient population seeking non-pharmacologic interventions based on sound therapy, and increasingly, delivered via mobile and web platforms and devices.
