High prevalence of epilepsy among the geriatric population and increase in cases of brain injuries caused by accidents are major factors driving market growth.

The high susceptibility rate of attaining epilepsy among the elderly is projected to drive market demand. As per the 2018 study in the Neuroepidemiology Journal, the prevalence rate of epilepsy among individuals older than 60 was 7.7 per 1000. Moreover, brain injuries which can trigger post-traumatic epilepsy (PTE) and post-traumatic seizure (PTS) can fuel the demand in the Epilepsy Industry.

Developing economies in Africa offer a prime opportunity for investment in the market. According to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2017, nearly 80% of the patient population with epilepsy live in middle- and low-income countries.
