Aging populations will lead to a growing number of active epilepsy diagnoses
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).
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.
