Global Ketamine Treatment Market Research Report 2023-Competitive Analysis, Status and Outlook by Type, Downstream Industry, and Geography, Forecast to 2029

Ketamine is a powerful psychedelic substance with strong dissociative effects used as a general anesthetic in medicine. It has a long history as a party-drug, but more recently ketamine has been found to have therapeutic benefits, specifically when treating treatment-resistant depression, PTSD, and addiction. Ketamine, which was initially used as an anesthetic, is now used in treating depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Ketamine participates in the treatment process in the form of infusions and nasal sprays.

Market Overview:

The latest research study on the global Ketamine Treatment market finds that the global Ketamine Treatment market reached a value of USD 309.31 million in 2022. It’s expected that the market will achieve USD 2681.7 million by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of 43.33% during the forecast period.

Bring volatility in the short term

COVID-19 has just broken out, and major economies have responded positively by adopting policies such as suspension of work and production, and home isolation, which have had some negative impacts on Ketamine production and ketamine treatment. In the short term, Ketamine Treatment will be suppressed in the short term due to home isolation to prevent and control the epidemic.

Long-term positive impact

During COVID-19, people stay in isolation at home, socializing is blocked, and patients with depression continue to increase. The number of American adults reporting symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression during the pandemic has increased significantly. The demand for treatment for depression is increasing. At the same time, treatment is a rigid demand, and the demand for Ketamine, which acts as an anesthetic treatment or an analgesic, remains strong. With the gradual improvement of the epidemic, the treatment of other diseases such as surgery has returned to normal, people's demand for hospitals has recovered, and the demand for Ketamine Treatment is also increasing.

There are side effects

Ketamine taken under medical supervision is considered a relatively safe drug. Ketamine is not considered to be a physical addiction, but it may still cause psychological dependence. Patients with high blood pressure, thyroid disease, alcoholism, and aneurysms should use ketamine with caution, because ketamine can increase blood pressure. It has been found that frequent use of high doses can cause neurodegeneration, and frequent use of high doses of ketamine can cause liver and urinary system toxicity. Ketamine can cause increased blood pressure and intracranial pressure, or increased brain pressure. It can also cause loss of appetite, stomach upset, and vomiting. A certain degree of side effects, for certain people, such as coronary artery disease, thyroid disease, chronic alcohol addiction, etc., especially people over 65 years old, ketamine treatment will be limited. Ketamine is also not recommended for pediatric patients younger than 3 months. The existence of side effects has a certain degree of negative impact on the development of the industry.

Prosperity of clinical experimental research

Ketamine's recent breakthrough has cast a huge spotlight on all of the possible medical benefits of the substance. Here are a few current clinical trials: Emergency Ketamine Treatment of Suicidal Ideation; Ketamine Treatment for Pediatric-Refractory Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD); Open Label Ketamine Treatment for Major Depressive Disorder in Veterans; Ketamine Treatment Effects on Synaptic Plasticity in Depression; Investigation of Antidepressant Efficacy of Oral Ketamine Treatment, etc. With the development of clinical research, the emphasis on Ketamine Treatment will continue to increase, which will also promote the high-level development of the Ketamine Treatment market and bring development opportunities.
