Migraine Drugs Market Overview:

The global migraine drugs market was valued at $1,713 million in 2017, and is expected to reach $2,190 million by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 3.1% from 2018 to 2025. Migraine is a clinical condition associated with painful headaches and other symptoms such as nausea, sensitivity to smell, and others. These headaches generally occur on one side of the head and each episode of migraine has different duration and intensity. Migraine drugs are employed in the treatment of headaches associated with migraine.

Rise in prevalence of migraine drives the migraine drugs market. Moreover, increase in female population and surge in awareness among patients related to prevention and treatment of migraine are the key factors that augment the growth of the market. However, side effects associated with migraine drugs is a factor that hinders the market growth. On the contrary, the presence of growth opportunities in emerging nations is expected to provide new opportunities for the key players.

The report segments the migraine drugs market based on type, route of administration, distribution channel, and region. Based on type, the market is bifurcated into abortive medicine and preventive medicine. Depending on route of administration, it is fragmented into oral, injection, and others. By distribution channel, it is categorized into hospital-based pharmacies, retail pharmacies, and online pharmacies.

Abortive Medicines dominated the migraine drugs market in 2017, owing to the ease of self-administration in case of patients with symptoms of nausea and vomiting along with migraine.

Female Population are Mostly Affected

Migraine pain is commonly prevalent in women as compared to men. According to the Migraine Association of Ireland, the ratio of female migraineurs to male migraineurs was found to be 3:1 in the global population in 2018. This is attributed to the changes in estrogen levels in females, especially during menstruation. Moreover, hormonal medications, such as oral contraceptives and hormone replacement therapy may further worsen migraine in women. Therefore, increase in the global female population is anticipated to propel the growth of migraine drugs market

Rise in focus of vendors on the emerging markets, such as Asia-Pacific and LAMEA, is expected to boost the market growth. Asia-Pacific is projected to witness significant growth in future, owing to rise in demand for better healthcare facilities and improvements in healthcare infrastructure. Furthermore, this region presents remarkable opportunities for the venture capitalists and investors, as the developed markets are comparatively saturated.
