Global Migraine Drugs Market to Witness Strong Growth During 2020-2025, Impelled by Rising Prevalence and Diagnosis

Published on Sep 10, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Migraine Drugs Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025”, the global migraine drugs market size reached US$ 2.1 Billion in 2019. Migraine drugs refer to medications that are used to reduce the severity of migraines and prevent future attacks. A migraine is a severe, neurological disease with a debilitating headache, characterized by an intense throbbing or pulsing in one area of the head. It is accompanied by sensitivity to light, sound and smell, visual disturbances such as auras, and nausea or vomiting. Migraine drugs do not cure migraines; instead, they treat or relieve these symptoms. There are certain blood pressure medications, as well as some antidepressants, anti-seizure drugs and herbals that are used to reduce the frequency of migraines.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Migraine Drugs Market Trends:

According to the Migraine Trust, migraine is the third most common disease globally, with more than 10% of people getting a­ffected by the condition worldwide. This represents the primary factor that has increased the demand for migraine drugs across the globe. Apart from this, the rising healthcare expenditure and improving reimbursement policies for migraine medications are also acting as growth-inducing factors. Besides this, healthcare providers have made significant advancements in the diagnosis and treatment of migraine. A more advanced treatment modality with mechanism-based therapies, including supraorbital transcutaneous stimulation (STS) and transcranial magnetic stimulation, has been introduced as a preventive therapy for migraine. Additionally, there are many other drugs with novel mechanisms of action or new therapeutic targets, which are in different development stages. Furthermore, for the treatment of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), market players are testing migraine drugs, which is expected to positively influence the market. For instance, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, Biohaven Pharmaceutical Holding Company Ltd., has been examining Zavegepant to treat acute migraines and has commenced the clinical trial on the same drug to mitigate the neuro-immune consequences among COVID-19 patients. Looking forward, the market is expected to exhibit strong growth during the forecast period (2020-2025).
