Anti-seizure medications (anticonvulsants) were originally designed to treat people with epilepsy. Recurrent seizures, which are abrupt bursts of electrical activity in the brain that momentarily impair brain function, are the main signs of epilepsy. While some seizures result in difficulties such as loss of awareness or strange sensations, others cause the body to shake and twitch. Anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) are more frequently used to treat illnesses such as epilepsy, migraine, neuropathic pain, and bipolar disorder. The drugs prescribed for anti-epileptics are categorized into three generations. The first generation of drugs includes Bromide, Phenobarbital, Primidone, Carbamazepine, and others, the second generation of drugs includes Felbamate, Lamotrigine, and Levetiracetam, and the third generation of drugs includes Lacosamide, Eslicarbazepine Acetate, Clobazam, and others

Global anticonvulsant drugs market is estimated to be valued at US$ 6,757.8 million in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 8,030.4 million by 2030, witnessing a CAGR of 2.2% over the forecast period (2022-2030).

Global Anticonvulsant Drugs Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and lockdowns in various countries across the globe have impacted the financial status of businesses across all sectors. The private healthcare sector is one of the sectors, which has been majorly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The lockdown in various countries due to the COVID-19 pandemic has created an economic burden on the private healthcare sector. According to the Indian Journal of Medical Sciences published a report in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the conduction of clinical trials due to the unavailability of trial site staff, restrictions for traveling, investigational product availability, and others.

According to National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) published a report on April 29, 2020, many clinical trials suspended trial enrollment to minimize the risk of contracting COVID-19, and this has led to the delay in the activation of new clinical trials. Moreover, many companies have already missed the follow-up for the patients already in trials. Product development has experienced disruption to adjust to remote-work environments and lab capacity is reduced. Clinical trials are also being severely affected by disruptions in both new enrollments and in keeping existing patients on therapies. According to clinicaltrial.gov, as of April 2020, there were more than 2,850 trials and around 900,000 patients enrolled at trial sites in regions that were in partial or complete lockdown due to COVID-19 restrictions. While the R&D labs are currently operating at below 50% of the normal capacity across the globe. Many research centers have decided to freeze new trials and have stopped inpatient studies. Different pharmaceutical companies have also decided to delay the start of new clinical trials, suspended enrollment in some trials, and have postponed the initiation of new sites in the case of trials continuing enrollment.

Thus, the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is expected to limit growth of the global anticonvulsant drugs market during the forecast period.
