Market Overview

The emerging mental health devices and platforms market is expected to register a CAGR of 23.1% over the forecast period 2022-2027.

At first, the COVID-19 pandemic had a big impact on the market of mental health devices and platforms. The survey published by World Health Organization in 2020 points out that the COVID-19 pandemic has delayed or suspended vital mental health services in 93 percent of nations globally, despite rising demand for mental health care. Further, many countries (70%) have embraced telemedicine or teletherapy to address disruptions in in-person treatments, but there are considerable differences in its adoption. As per the World Health Organization 2020 report, in comparison to less than half of low-income nations, more than 80% of high-income countries reported using telemedicine and teletherapy to overcome mental health gaps.

Furthermore, the increase in teleconsultation after the pandemic and raising awareness of mental health during lockdowns were among the main factors driving the demand for mental health devices and platforms, thereby contributing to market growth. As per the press release on November 2021, Sun Life published the partnership with CloudMD to expand Mental Health Coach to all Group Benefits Clients. Even though many Canadians are suffering from mental health concerns, a Sun Life study found that more than half of them do not seek medical help. The biggest impediments to blame are cost, access, and feelings of embarrassment. With Mental Health Coach, Sun Life and CloudMD are bridging the gap. Clients who are at risk of having a mental health problem are identified through data analytics. It then proactively contacts clients to direct them to the appropriate resources and assistance.

Furthermore, the pandemic has brought attention to the importance of digital and virtual mental health care, potentially saving our mental health system. Product releases and strategic efforts by prominent market competitors favorably impact the industry's growth. For instance, in October 2021, Medical, Inc., a medical device company, announced that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had granted the company Breakthrough Device Designation for its individualized, rapid-acting, non-invasive neurostimulation technology, which is intended to treat the major depressive disorder (MDD) in people who have not responded to antidepressant medication or other treatments. The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Breakthrough Device program aims to provide patients access to breakthrough technologies that have the potential to deliver more effective treatment or diagnosis for life-threatening or debilitating diseases or conditions than current medicines.

Therefore, owing to the aforementioned factors, the studied market is anticipated to witness growth over the analysis period. However, the limited clinically validated scientific data for mental health applications restrain the market growth.

Scope of the Report

Key Market Trends

Mental Health Platforms are Expected to Witness a Positive Growth Over the Forecast Period

Mental health platforms are digital platforms that strive to raise mental health awareness, de-stigmatize mental health issues, and provide treatment and therapy services. According to the reports published by Mental Health America 2022, the prevalence of mental illness ranked 1 in New Jersey. In addition, 19.86% of adults are experiencing a mental illness, equivalent to nearly 50 million Americans. The state prevalence of adult mental illness ranges from 16.37% in New Jersey to 26.86% in Utah. This increased prevalence accounts for the need for mental health platforms and device demand.

Moreover, the report published by Harvard Business Review in December 2020 under the title “Digital Tools Is Revolutionizing Mental Health Care in the U.S” rules out that virtual care and other digital tools are more important than ever in supporting existing care, expanding capacity, and giving scalability. In clinic-based virtual care, traditional in-person office visits are replaced with synchronous video or audio visits or asynchronous text messaging. This presents alternatives to the standard 50-minute therapy hour, allowing for better supply and demand matching across time zones and regions. Patients can text a clinician or coach at any time and receive a response later using asynchronous messaging through mental health platforms.

As a result of the aforementioned factors, the mental health platforms segment is predicted to develop significantly throughout the forecast period.

Emerging Mental Health Devices and Platforms Market Share

North America is Expected to Grow the Mental Health Devices and Platforms Market

In 2021, North America held most of the market share for mental health platforms and devices. According to the 2020 report by the National Institute of Mental Health, nearly one in every five adults in the United States suffers from a mental condition (52.9 million in 2020). The emergence of this region can be attributed to an increase in covid-19 in the United States and the rest of North America, as well as enhanced governmental funding activities to improve mental health post-pandemic.

Key product releases, mergers and acquisitions, increased mental health awareness, and the presence of manufacturers in the country are all factors that have contributed to the growth of the mental health platforms and devices market. According to the press release on November 2021, by MindBeacon, one of North America's leading clinically-validated internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy solutions was acquired by CloudMD. The acquisition is predicted to be instantly synergistic because of several reasons such as the combined digital health platform providing a broad continuum of care to treat mild, moderate, acute, and chronic mental and physical care. Furthermore, In 2022, Texas-based medical equipment manufacturer Electromedical Products International, Inc. acquired Pulvinar Neuro (Pulvinar), a leading research-oriented medical device firm focused on the development of closed-loop and other novel neuromodulating brain stimulation solutions for the clinical treatment of various mental health disorders. Pulvinar's patented and exclusive technologies, such as transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS), personalized feedback stimulation, and cloud-enabled digital medicines for the treatment of psychiatric and neurological disorders, will benefit from the acquisition.

The analyzed market is predicted to grow in the North American region as a result of the above-mentioned factors.
