Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder is known as a brain disorder in which the patient is hyperactive, impulsive, and has an absence of attention. ADHD is not just a childhood disorder. Although the symptoms of ADHD begin in childhood, ADHD can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Even though hyperactivity tends to improve as a child becomes a teen, problems with inattention, disorganization, and poor impulse control often continue through the teen years and into adulthood.
As the newer generation is becoming more aware of mental health disorders, the rates of diagnosis and demand for treatment have significantly increased in the market. In 2015, the prevalence of ADHD in Fayooum City, Egypt, was 20.5%.
Commonly found in children, the market is driven by rising concern in the masses regarding mental illness and awareness among the population, especially the new generation parents. Given the lifestyle and activities that children and young adults engage in, there is also a surge in the cases of ADHD.
Children constitute about 41% of the total population of Egypt and gradually the rates of incidence are going up. In Arab countries, the incidence of ADHD is higher than in other regions, reaching 9.4–21.8% in Egypt. This spurt in disease incidence will boost the market growth for ADHD drugs.
The treatment modes for the disorder are also advancing and this is likely to boost the market growth for ADHD treatment in the forecast period.
