Market Report, "EpiCast Report: Schizophrenia - Epidemiology Forecast to 2022", published

Schizophrenia is a chronic, severe, and disabling group of psychotic disorders characterized by fundamental disturbances of thinking such as hallucinations, delusions, disorganized communication, and reduced motivation. Schizophrenia affects men and women equally, and usually starts in young adulthood (between ages 16 and 30 years). Due to the chronic nature of the condition, schizophrenia requires lifelong treatment. Although treatment helps in relieving symptoms of schizophrenia to some extent, most people with the disorder have to cope with the symptoms throughout their lives.

Schizophrenia causes enormous burden on the patients and their families, as well as on society in the form of treatment expenses, loss of productivity, and disability. Because the onset of schizophrenia is usually in young adulthood, which is the most critical period of educational, occupational, and social development, the consequences often lead to lifelong disability with deterioration in functional capacity. Patients with schizophrenia also have increased physical morbidity and mortality compared with the population without a psychotic disorder.
