Impact of COVID-19 on ADHD Therapeutics Market
The attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder therapeutics market will exhibit substantial growth on the back of the global pandemic. As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, healthcare institutions have deprioritized a majority of non-essential medical treatments. On this premise, in-person counseling sessions have also been postponed, thereby leaving individuals with ADHD completely reliant on therapeutics. In spite of supply chain disruptions and hindered production lines, players are leveraging the demand for medicines and are trying to dispatch them to stores that are running out of essential medicines. In the form of the rising demand for ADHD therapeutics that help in coping with mental distress caused by self-isolation, the pandemic is acting as a catalyst for the growth of the ADHD therapeutics market.
