Healthcare Sep 22, 2022

The global anticonvulsants market is expected to grow from USD 19.2 billion in 2021 to USD 24.1 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 2.6% during the forecast period 2022-2030.

The varied class of pharmacological medicines known as anticonvulsants is used to treat epileptic seizures. Bipolar illness and borderline personality disorder are two other conditions that anticonvulsants are used to treat more frequently. Anticonvulsants are also called antiepileptic drugs and are also referred to as antiseizure drugs as they provide relief from the occurring symptoms and do not change the course of epilepsy. Epilepsy is a chronic disease that results in unjustified and repeated seizures. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), around 50 million people are affected by epilepsy worldwide. Moreover, it is estimated that approximately 2.4 million new cases of epilepsy globally are diagnosed every year. According to the Epilepsy Society of the U.K., there are over 20 medications available to treat epilepsy, including barbiturates, carboxamides, carbamates, and GABA analogs. There are also about 25 generic versions of these medications on the market.

Competitive Landscape:

To enhance their market position in the global anticonvulsants market, the key players are now focusing on adopting the strategies such as product innovations, mergers & acquisitions, recent developments, joint ventures, collaborations, and partnerships.

  • In June 2021, the Antiepileptic Drugs and Device Trials conference was held, which focused on current topics related to AEDD development, from preclinical trials to clinical prognostication.

Market growth and trends:

Increasing government organizations' support for drug approval drives the market's growth. Furthermore, the rising prevalence of epilepsy globally propels the market's growth. The growing approval for anticonvulsant drugs by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) contributes highly to the market's growth. The FDA approves around 24 anticonvulsant drugs. However, the unavailability of convenient dosage forms and the high costs of both branded and generic anticonvulsants are restraining the growth of the anticonvulsants market. The increasing R&D activities to help manufacture several anticonvulsant drugs provide an opportunity for the market's growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, the growing incidences of epilepsy increase the demand for therapeutically effective medications creating pressure among market players to create anticonvulsants.
