The Global Internet Addiction Disorder Market is expected to reach USD XX Billion by 2033, at a CAGR of 11.45% during the forecast period 2023 to 2033.


Internet Addiction Disorder (IAD) is a mental health condition characterized by excessive internet use that interferes with daily life. Symptoms of IAD include preoccupation with the internet, neglecting other activities, lying about internet use, and experiencing withdrawal symptoms when not online. The increasing incidence of IAD is caused by a number of factors, including ubiquitous internet access, the growing popularity of social media and online gaming, and the increased use of smartphones and other handheld devices. Because of the increasing prevalence of IAD, the general public and healthcare professionals are becoming more aware of the disorder. This increased awareness is increasing demand for IAD treatment services.


According to IAT scores, the overall prevalence of Internet addiction was 36.7% in the general population during the pandemic, and the prevalence of severe Internet addiction was 2.8%. According to the National Library of Medicine, Internet addiction has become a serious issue for mental health in many countries, including China (16.4%), South Korea (20%), and other parts of Asia, including Vietnam (21.2%) and the Philippines (21%), and its prevalence is increasing in the United States and Western European countries.


Key market trends driving the IAD market include the increasing prevalence of IAD, rising awareness of the disorder, and growing demand for treatment services. However, the market is restrained by factors such as the lack of standardized diagnostic criteria, limited insurance coverage, and stigma associated with IAD.

Internet Addiction Disorder Market Dynamics

The pervasiveness of the internet and digital devices has contributed to a significant rise in IAD cases. The constant accessibility of online platforms, coupled with the allure of social media, online gaming, and other engaging digital content, has led to an increased susceptibility to excessive internet usage. This growing prevalence is a major driving factor behind the expanding IAD market. As the understanding of IAD and its detrimental effects on individuals' lives has grown, so has the awareness of the disorder.

The lack of standardized diagnostic criteria for IAD poses a significant challenge.
