DelveInsight’s ‘Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)- Epidemiology Forecast to 2030’ report delivers an in-depth understanding of the disease, historical and forecasted GAD epidemiology in the 7MM, i.e., the United States, EU5 (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, and the United Kingdom), and Japan.
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) Understanding
Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) is characterized by persistent and exaggerated anxiety and worry about everyday life events with no obvious reasons for worry. People with GAD may anticipate disaster and may be overly concerned about money, health, family, work, or other issues. Individuals with GAD find it difficult to control their worry. They may worry more than seems warranted about actual events or may expect the worst even when there is no apparent reason for concern. According to Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA), GAD affects around 6.8 million adults or 3.1% of the US adult population in any given year and the criteria used for diagnosis was based on DSM-IV. However, latest DSM-V yielded an influx of new GAD cases which give rise to the prevalence rate as well in adult population (i.e., 12-month prevalence rate is 4% in the US adult population). Women are twice as likely to be affected. GAD can begin at any point in the life cycle but usually develops between childhood and middle age. People with GAD experience a combination of emotional, behavioral, and physical symptoms that often fluctuate, becoming worse at times of stress. The anxiety is often associated with physical symptoms, such as sleep disturbance, restlessness, muscle tension, gastrointestinal symptoms, and chronic headaches and others. It also includes several psychological symptoms.

Study Period: 2017–2030
Total ptevalent cases of GAD in the United States was assessed to be 11,113,727 in 2017, and are expected to decline during the study period. The severity of GAD Is divided into mild, moderate, or severe based on the number of criteria symptoms such as a functional disability in work role performance, household maintenance, social life, and intimate relationships with the severity of the symptoms. According to DelveInsight’s analysts, the age-specific data in adults, 18–29 is normally reported with the initiation of the anxiety symptoms, thus then increased with middle age group (30–44) and to 45–59 years, while older (60+) age group are the least affected. This may be often associated with societal responsibilities and personal satisfaction levels.
