Market Highlights

Migraine is a common neurovascular sickness that is characterized by tender headaches and is commonly associated with other neurological indications, such as nausea, vomiting, and painful sensitivity to lights and sounds. Migraine is more common in women than men, majorly due to the fluctuations in the hormone levels.  Approximately 12% of the US population suffered from migraine headaches in 2018. The treatment of migraine headaches is eased by the administration of preventive medications, to avoid migraine attacks and abortive medications to relieve strong and periodic pain.

The growth of the global migraine drugs market is driven by various factors such as an increasing global geriatric population, rising prevalence of migraine, growing awareness about migraine in developing economies, rising R&D investment for the development of innovative drugs for the treatment of migraine, and increasing demand for better treatment methods for migraine. However, stringent government regulations, high investment required for drug research & development, and side-effects of medications prescribed for migraine are the factors that are expected to limit the growth of the global migraine drugs market during the forecast period.

The global migraine drugs market is currently dominated by several market players. The key players are involved in product launches and strategic collaborations to strengthen their market positions. Migraine treatment drugs available are approved for the acute form of the condition, led by generic triptans as the first-line treatment. The global migraine treatment market is witnessing a rapid shift in terms of strong R&D with the launch of CGRP-based therapies and approval of novel drug classes such as ditans, gepants, and reformulation of triptans for the treatment of both chronic and episodic migraine. Launch of late-stage pipeline products such as erenumab, galcanezumab, fremanezumab, and eptinezumab by major players such as Eli Lilly and Company, Alder Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Teva Pharmaceuticals Ltd, and Amgen strengthened its market position in the global migraine drugs market in 2018.
