Gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is an important inhibitory neurotransmitter found in the central nervous system of mammals. The neurotransmitter reduces the activity of neurons to which it binds, thus is used to control anxiety or fear when neurons are overexcited. GABA receptors are protein molecules that respond to neurotransmitter GABA.
Rise in incidences of neurological disorders and increase in aging population since the probability of developing Alzheimer's disease doubles every five years after the age of 65 drive the market. According to Alzheimers Association, the risk of developing Alzheimers is nearly 50% after the age 85. Moreover, increase in prevalence of risk factors (such as diabetes), and lifestyle changes (such as alcohol consumption) also increase the chances of developing a mental disorder.
This ultimately drive the market growth. However, low awareness, especially in developing nations; regarding treatment of mental disorders restrain the market growth. Increased funding by government and private organizations across emerging economies for treatment of neurological disorders is expected to provide growth opportunities for the market growth.
