Epilepsy is a group of neurological disorders characterized by brief, involuntary episodes of vigorous shaking of a part or complete body, which may cause loss or disturbance of consciousness. About 24 million people around the globe in 2015 had epilepsy and grand mal seizures was the most common among the patients. 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. The factors causing grand mal seizures are-neurotransmitter imbalances-which are also influenced by fatigue, lack of sleep, hypertension, stress, intense lighting, rapid motion, blood sugar level, anxiety, etc.
The Global Grand Mal Seizures Market Size 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.
The market for grand mal seizures will respond very positively for any novel acting drug molecules due to poor efficacy and efficiency of the available drugs. The Gamma Aminobutyric Acid Modulators and ion channel blockers hold the largest market share but the sizeable segment of patients respond very poorly to these drugs. The market for grand mal seizures also undergoes from the high cost of clinical trials and extensive post market surveillance. Most of the drugs also have very similar mechanism of action, which assures the introduction of novel drugs with a different mechanism of action, will acquire maximum share, and achieve leading position at minimum marketing cost. The support for drug research and awareness created by the social and government bodies is also expected to help the global grand mal seizures market.
A significant growth in sensitivity towards patient safety and regulatory compliance may hamper the market growth, especially, in the US. Furthermore, due to rising stringency of FDA such as pre-market approval and focus on evidence for efficacy, efficiency as well as patient safety may slow the growth of the market.
