Market Outlook

Attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) affects over 40 million people—children, adolescents, and adults—across the major pharmaceutical markets. The key treatment goals for both pediatric and adult ADHD include controlling the core symptoms of the condition—inattention and/or hyperactivity/impulsivity—as well improving patients’ overall functioning and quality of life. Psychostimulants are the predominant drug class prescribed for both pediatric and adult ADHD, though nonstimulant therapies serve as alternative or later-line options. Shortcomings in existing therapies, however, represent potential areas of opportunity for emerging therapies to be differentiated from competitors. Furthermore, recognition and diagnosis of adult ADHD continues to grow, particularly in the United States, but this population remains underdetected and undertreated, representing a sizable market opportunity.


  • What is the current state of treatment for pediatric and adult ADHD across the G7, and what needs are left unfulfilled by current ADHD therapies?
  • How has the entrance of generic competition to key drugs (e.g., Eli Lilly’s Strattera [atomoxetine]) modified the ADHD treatment landscape?
  • How have newer-to-market and brand-only agents (e.g., Shire’s Mydayis, Neos Therapeutics’ Adzenys ER) been incorporated into medical practice? What are physicians’ perception of these therapies?
  • What emerging therapies do ADHD thought leaders consider the most promising for pediatric ADHD and adult ADHD?
