Market Synopsis of Global Grand Mal Seizure Market
Epilepsy is a group of neurological disorders characterized by brief, involuntary episodes of vigorous shaking of a part or complete body. The patient may experience loss or disturbance of consciousness and movements along with sensory or psychiatric disturbances. About 24 million people around the globe had epilepsy in 2015 across the globe. Grand mal seizures or tonic–clonic seizures are a type of generalized seizures, which affect the entire brain and are the most common type of epileptic seizures. Grand mal seizures are caused by neurotransmitter imbalances, which can also be influenced by fatigue, lack of sleep, hypertension, stress, intense lighting, rapid motion, blood sugar level, anxiety, etc. The grand mal seizures consist of two phases, the tonic phase and the clonic phase. The tonic phase involves loss of consciousness and muscle twitching and the phase usually last only for a few seconds. The clonic phase consists of rapid muscle contraction and relaxation resulting in convulsions.
Development of better tolerated third generation drugs, increasing screening of patients, and growing geriatric population- they are more susceptible to epilepsy- drive the growth of the market. Increased patent expiry for a number of anti-epilepsy drugs such as Neurontin (2003) and Lyrica (scheduled in 2018), unknown origin and action mechanism of epilepsy, and concurrent lack of innovative drugs are likely to affect the market growth negatively. The market is also constrained by the poor efficacy and efficiency of most of the anti-epileptic drugs. A sizeable segment of patients respond very poorly or none at all to main line drugs such as the Gamma Aminobutyric Acid Modulators and ion channel blockers. These drugs have serious adverse effect on the patient such as depression, and suicidal behaviour, dizziness, fatigue, weight gain, etc. Social stigma associated with the epilepsy, especially, in the developing countries may hamper the market over the forecast period.
The global grand mal seizures market is expected to reach US$ 2.8 billion by 2023, and the market is projected to grow at a CAGR of ~ 4.2 % during the forecast period 2017-2023.
