In addition to the common risk factors prevalent among all age groups, chronic diseases, restricted mobility, bereavement, abuse, isolation, and loss of income are the major risk factors for depression among the geriatric population. The prevalence of depression among adults aged 65 and older is estimated to be between 5% and 10%. Depression is projected to be the second leading cause of disease burden in this age group by 2020.

The atypical antidepressants segment dominated the global depression drugs market in 2019. This trend is projected to continue during the forecast period, as it is first-line of treatment, and due to increase in cases of depression and launch of new drugs.
