Development of better tolerated third generation drugs, increasing screening of patients, and growing geriatric population- they are more susceptible to epilepsy- drive the growth of the market. Increased patent expiry for a number of anti-epilepsy drugs such as Neurontin (2003) and Lyrica (scheduled in 2018), unknown origin and action mechanism of epilepsy, and concurrent lack of innovative drugs are likely to affect the market growth negatively. The market is also constrained by the poor efficacy and efficiency of most of the anti-epileptic drugs. A sizeable segment of patients respond very poorly or none at all to main line drugs such as the Gamma Aminobutyric Acid Modulators and ion channel blockers. These drugs have serious adverse effect on the patient such as depression, and suicidal behaviour, dizziness, fatigue, weight gain, etc. Social stigma associated with the epilepsy, especially, in the developing countries may hamper the market over the forecast period.
