The market constraints are social stigma and discrimination, poor efficacy and efficiency of anti-psychotic drugs, serious side effects such as habit forming potential etc. Patent expiry is also constraining the market as a number of established brands such as, Zyprexa, Seroquel, Risperdal lost patents. The drug development pipeline represents another miserable situation. The development pipeline is poor with a few if any novel acting drugs. The market represents numerous drugs with same mechanism of action and similar therapeutic profile which has hampered the market.
