Epileptic Seizures Treatment Market: Introduction
According to the report, the global epileptic seizures treatment market was valued at US$ 1.2 Bn in 2019 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of ~4% from 2020 to 2030. In epilepsy, the brain activity becomes abnormal, resulting in recurrent seizures that are short episodes of involuntary movement, which may involve a part of the body or the entire body. These seizures in some cases cause loss of consciousness and bladder function, or bowel control. An epileptic seizure is defined as a period of symptoms due to abnormally excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain. Treatment for epileptic seizures include benzodiazepines, phenytoin, and dosphenytoin. Benzodiazepines are first-line treatment for status epilepticus and repetitive seizures due to better efficacy and quicker action.
Rise in Prevalence of Epilepsy with Increase in Status Epilepticus & Repetitive Seizures to Drive Global Market
Increase in patient population with status epilepticus and acute repetitive seizures is the major factor fueling the growth of the global epileptic seizures treatment market. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), epilepsy accounts for a considerable proportion of the world’s disease burden; globally, more than 50 million people are affected by this disease. The introduction of novel drug treatments and routes of administration for epileptic seizures and genetic factors associated with brain malformations & epileptic seizures are other factors accelerating the growth of the global epileptic seizures treatment market. Moreover, increase in incidence of cardiovascular diseases, head injuries, brain cancer, infections, and substance abuse drives the global epileptic seizures treatment market.
Diazepam to be Lucrative Segment
In terms of therapeutic, the global epileptic seizures treatment market has been classified into midazolam, alprazolam, diazepam, lorazepam, phenytoin, fosphenytoin, and others.

Diazepam is likely to be a promising segment during the forecast period. New route of administration, strategic collaboration between companies for development & commercialization of diazepam, and lower prescription cost for diazepam are the major factors attributed to the higher growth of the diazepam segment.
Status Epilepticus to Dominate Market

The oral/buccal segment dominated the global epileptic seizures treatment market in 2019. The trend is expected to continue from 2020 to 2030 owing to patient convenience with oral route, approval & launch of buccal film medications, availability of a large number of products that can be administered through oral route, and new products with better patient compliance. Nasal is likely to be a highly lucrative segment during the forecast period. The segment is projected to expand at a higher CAGR during the forecast period due to new drug approval, better penetration among patients due to convenient route, and better tolerability.
