Epilepsy is a brain disorder characterized by spontaneously occurring and recurrent seizures. Seizures result from abnormal electrical discharges in the brain and vary in their manifestations, from the brief staring spells that are characteristic of absence seizures, to full-body convulsions known as tonic-clonic seizure. Epilepsy can be considered a spectrum disorder due to its different causes, different seizure types, and different disease severities.




There are several anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) on the market, with an older generation fully genericized across the 7MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK and, Japan) and a second generation, which are patent protected. There are five drugs in the late stage pipeline, which address some of the unmet needs in the market and, as such are expected to drive growth while patent expiries for major brand are expected to act as a barrier to growth for the epilepsy market over the forecast period.


Research estimates that drug sales for epilepsy in 2016 were approximately $6.1 billion across the seven major markets covered in this report. Over the 10-year forecast period, the market is expected to grow to $7.5 billion at a CAGR of 2.1%. This growth will be driven by the launch of five late-stage pipeline products. The two highest selling drugs are expected to be GW Pharmaceuticals’ Epidiolex (cannabidiol) and Zogenix’s flenfluramine, which both target rare, orphan epilepsy syndrome, are forecast to be the top selling pipeline drugs in the forecast period.
