Datamonitor has estimated that there were approximately 4.5 million cases of diagnosed active epilepsy in 2010 in the seven major markets (the US, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK). Almost half of this patient population lives in the US. Datamonitor expects prevalence rates to remain constant over the forecast period (2010–20). As such, the aging populations in th
Features and benefits
- Gain insight to market potential, including a robust 10-year epidemiology forecast of prevalent cases of diagnosed active epilepsy.
- Understand the key epidemiologic risk factors associated with epilepsy.
Datamonitor expects an increase in diagnosed active epilepsy cases in the next decade in the seven major markets as a result of an increase in populations.
Chronic epilepsy can result in brain damage, disability, and a low quality of life causing high social and economic burden
