Epilepsy is a condition that causes repeated seizures that are not brought on by localized or severe brain shocks. Epilepsy is linked to gradual impairments in cognitive functioning, neurological damage, and other cerebral impairments if it is left untreated. Antiepileptic medications (AEDs) are prescribed to patients who have epilepsy to reduce the frequency and/or severity of their seizures.

After headaches, epilepsy is the second most prevalent neurological disorder. Since it has a significant financial impact on the health care system and imposes a significant morbidity burden on both individuals and society, it is a major concern for public health. It is characterized by repeated seizures with cerebral etiology.

Numerous medicines used to treat epilepsy frequently result in severe poisonings. AEDs do not have a perfect pharmacokinetic profile, which makes them suitable for both therapeutic and toxicity monitoring. Currently, tailoring the dosage to the patient’s specific requirements and keeping an eye on adequate blood concentrations is very advantageous for patients utilizing different AEDs.

The growing ageing population, rising burden of neurological conditions, and rising disposable income, are thus the factors driving the demand for the global antiepileptic drugs market.

Key Takeaways from Market Study

  • Second generation of antiepileptic drugs are the leading segment as drug generation, and hold approximately 4% market share in 2021. In comparison to first-generation medications, second generation AEDs have a lower risk of teratogenesis and a more favorable side-effect profile.
  • Oral route of administration segment is set to lead in terms of route of administration of antiepileptic drugs with a market share of around 2% in 2021, owing to its ease of administration in pediatric and geriatric patients.
