The global epilepsy drugs market size reached US$ 2.16 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 3.52 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 8.2% during 2023-2028. The rising prevalence of epilepsy, increasing incidences of brain cancer in the geriatric population, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Epilepsy drugs refer to medications used for treating epilepsy, a central nervous system (CNS) disorder that causes unpredictive, unprovoked, and recurrent episodes of seizures. Epilepsy affects various mental and physical functions causing sudden behavioral changes, sensations, loss of awareness, and severe emotional distress. Its medication includes first-, second-, and third-generation anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs), such as tablets, capsules, liquids, and syrups that are administered through oral, intravenous (IV), and intramuscular routes. Epilepsy drugs are widely used to treat various seizures, including partial onset, hard-to-treat, mixed, tonic-clonic, and acute repetitive seizures. Epilepsy drugs are safe, offer better tolerability, prevent life-threatening adverse effects, and minimize the negative impact on the cognitive functions.
At present, the rising prevalence of epilepsy due to increasing incidences of neurological disorders, birth-related injuries, infections, substance abuse, and road injuries is one of the primary factors driving the market growth. Epilepsy drugs are widely used to eliminate seizures, reduce their frequency, and evade the adverse effects associated with long-term treatments, thus helping patients in restoring their usual psychosocial and vocational activities and maintaining a normal lifestyle. In addition to this, the rising geriatric population that is prone to developing critical ailments, such as brain cancer, that can cause seizures, is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Furthermore, extensive research and development (R&D) activities toward developing new and advanced drugs that are affordable and provide improved tolerability and efficacy with fewer side effects are currently positively influencing the market growth. Apart from this, the recent development of extended-release (ER) drug formulations that allow longer dosing intervals while minimizing the fluctuations in serum drug levels, thus improving efficacy and adherence as compared to immediate-release (IR) drugs, is facilitating the market growth. Moreover, the implementation of various government initiatives to educate the masses about the disorder, promote research, and provide active support by expediting better treatment options are propelling the market growth. Other factors, including the rising approval of novel drugs, rapid improvements in healthcare infrastructural facilities, increasing public awareness regarding the available treatments of neurological disorders, and the decreasing stigma associated with epilepsy, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
