NEW YORK, Nov. 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Epilepsy Therapeutics in Asia-Pacific Markets to 2024 - Uptake of Novel Therapies and Rising Awareness is Expected to Drive the Market Growth

Read the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p05634185 SummaryEpilepsy is a chronic medical disorder or condition in which the brain is overactive, sending too many signals, usually resulting in unpredictable, unprovoked recurrent
seizures that affect a variety of mental and physical functions. Epilepsy is the fourth most common neurological disorder, affecting more than 65 million individuals worldwide. Epilepsy can start at any age, but is most commonly diagnosed in people under 20 and people over 65. This is because some causes are more common in young people (such as difficulties at birth, childhood infections or accidents) and in older people (such as strokes that lead to epilepsy).Epilepsy treatment has historically been dominated by gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA) modulators and sodium channel blockers, leaving a wide unmet need intact in a sizeable section of patients who do not respond to the existing treatment options. Historically there is a lack of potent disease modifying or curative drugs in the epilepsy therapeutic space. The dominant older generation AEDs had poor safety and tolerability profiles. Second generation AEDs with newer mechanisms of action; signaled a shift in this trend in the last decade with improved tolerability and efficacy.Epilepsy market in the five major geographies in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region (Australia, China, India, Japan and South Korea) is expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.5% to reach $1.75 billion in 2024. The value of the market is expected to grow more rapidly in India and China compared with the more developed markets, Japan and Australia. With a high prevalence, these two regions have large treatment populations, which are expected to grow further due to better healthcare access and improvements in treatment gaps.The late-stage pipeline contains promising therapies that have the potential to achieve approval and launch during the forecast period. These drugs are under development with novel mechanisms of actions that are not conventional in the epilepsy market and are expected to provide greater efficacy and safety than previous AEDs. The launch and uptake of these new pipeline therapies with better efficacy are expected to drive APAC market growth.Scope- The APAC epilepsy market will be valued at $1.7 billion in 2024, growing from $1.4 billion in 2017 at a CAGR of 3.5%.- How will the approval of Cenobamate for treatment-resistant epilepsy affect the competitive landscape, with no therapy currently available to address this patient subset?- The epilepsy market is crowded with cheap, generic, "me-too" drugs. What are the main barriers a new therapy faces when entering the epilepsy market?- The pipeline for epilepsy therapy is not diverse in terms of molecule type and molecular targets.- How have the late-stage therapies performed in clinical trials?- The level of unmet need in the epilepsy market is high. Will the pipeline drugs fulfill these unmet needs?- The market forecasts indicate that India and China will contribute the most to the APAC market.- How will the annual cost of therapy and market size vary between the five assessed APAC markets?- How will the growing population affect the market?- How will the various drivers and barriers influence the market over the forecast period?- Licensing deals are the most common form of strategic alliance in epilepsy, with total deal values ranging from under $0.1m to over $820m.- How do deal frequency and value compare between target families and molecule types?Reasons to buyThis report will enable you to:- Understand the current clinical and commercial landscape by considering disease pathogenesis, diagnosis, prognosis, and the treatment options available at each stage of diagnosis, including a clinical comparison of marketed therapies.- Visualize the composition of the epilepsy market in terms of the dominant therapies for each patient subset, along with their clinical and commercial standing. Unmet needs are highlighted to allow a competitive understanding of gaps in the market.- Analyze the epilepsy pipeline and stratify pipeline therapies by stage of development, molecule type and molecular target.- Understand the potential of late-stage therapies with extensive profiles of products that could enter the market over the forecast period, highlighting clinical performance, potential commercial positioning, and how they will compete with other therapies.- Predict epilepsy market growth in the five assessed APAC markets, with epidemiological and annual cost of therapy forecasts across India, China, Australia, South Korea and Japan, as well as the individual contributions of promising late-stage molecules to market growth.- Identify commercial opportunities in the epilepsy deals landscape by analyzing trends in licensing and co-development deals.Read the full report: https://www.reportlinker.com/p05634185 About Reportlinker ReportLinker is an award-winning market research solution.
