Psychiatrists Market Size
The global psychiatrists market reached a value of nearly $197.0 billion in 2019, having grown at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.0% since 2015, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.9% to reach nearly $256.9 billion by 2023.

Psychiatrists Market Drivers
The Key driver of the psychiatrists market include:
Government Initiatives For Mental Health Reforms – Support for mental health resources led to a demand for mental care and drove the psychiatrists market in the historic period. For instance, in December 2016, the US federal introduced the 21st Century Cures Act, a healthcare package bill, which includes many mental health, substance use, and criminal justice provisions. This provision authorizes $4.8 billion over ten years to address mental health parity. In 2018, the Indian government allocated INR 500 million ($7.7 million) to ensure the availability of minimum mental health care for all - “the National Mental Health Programme”.
Psychiatrists Market Restraints
The key restraint on the psychiatrists market include:
Limited Healthcare Access – Limited access was one of the key restraints on the psychiatrists market during the historic period. Healthcare access was relatively poor in most developing countries compared to the developed nations. For instance, in 2016, India ranked 145th among 195 countries in terms of quality and accessibility of healthcare facilities. Globally, the disease burden is significantly higher in low- and middle-income countries. The public sector is a major employer of psychiatrists. Psychiatrists working in the public sector are so busy coping with acute crises that they are often unable to provide prevention and early intervention treatments or deal with the high prevalence disorders. The low access to practitioners hurt market growth in many developing nations.
Psychiatrists Market Trends

Discoveries In Psychiatric Genetics
The new studies associated with psychiatric genetics are discovering complex disorders related to mental health. Psychiatric genetics studies the role of genetics in the causes of mental health and provides knowledge to improve treatment methods. In 2019, scientists discovered causes related to anorexia, an eating disorder. The researchers found that the problems related to this disorder were driven by metabolism. The researchers compared nearly 17,000 anorexia symptomatic people’s DNA with more than 55,000 healthy controls. The study revealed eight genes that linked anorexia to anxiety, depression and obsessive compulsive disorder, all of which was expected. Ultimately, these genetic discoveries will provide clues to the major mental disorders.
Adoption Of Mobile And Connected Technologies For Psychiatric Diagnosis
Mobile and connected technologies are being implemented by psychiatric cares to assist in diagnosing and treating mental illness. Some developments such as the evolution of electronic medical records to document, communicate, and support clinical decision-making, are quickly becoming commonplace. These technologies offer real-time visibility of patient health through active and passive data collection. New e-tools can also monitor patients’ conditions such as behavioral patterns, and physiological sensing. It enables psychiatric care providers to create novel diagnostic tests for psychiatry.
