According to Vision Research Reports, the global epileptic seizures treatment market size surpassed at US$ 1.3 Bn in 2019 and to reach US$ 1.7 billion by 2027.

The global epileptic seizures treatment market is expected to grow at a moderate CAGR of 4.1 % over the forecast period 2020 to 2027. Increasing prevalence of epileptic seizures in patients worldwide, focus on providing a seizure-free life to patients, entry of a number of seizure detection devices, advancements in technology, and focus on research and development. Market players should focus on improving the efficacy of existing treatments and improving the accessibility to current epileptic seizures treatments particularly in developing regions.

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.
