DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 18, 2020--

The “Migraine Drugs Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.


The global migraine drugs market grew at a CAGR of around 14% during 2014-2019. Looking forward, the global migraine drugs market to exhibit strong growth during the forecast period (2020-2025).

Migraine is a neurological condition that causes unilateral or throbbing pain in the forehead, side of the head or around the eyes. The pain is often accompanied by autonomic symptoms, such as nausea, vomiting, photophobia and phonophobia. Migraine is generally diagnosed by examining the patient’s medical history and symptoms, as well as by performing blood tests, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computerized tomography (CT) scans. At present, over the counter (OTC) medicines and prescribed injections are available to relieve the symptoms and reduce the frequency and severity of migraine attacks. These drugs are either taken regularly or during attacks or exacerbations of chronic pain.

A significant rise in the prevalence and diagnosis of migraine represents one of the key factors bolstering the market growth. Apart from this, the improvement in reimbursement policies for migraine medications, along with the escalating demand for precision medicines, is also contributing to the market growth.

Furthermore, the growing demand for electrical nerve stimulating devices to treat migraine and the expected approval of new classes of drugs that are in late-stage pipeline and have higher clinical efficacy, such as the introduction of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) monoclonal antibodies, are also driving the market growth. Besides this, the testing of migraine drugs for the treatment of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is expected to create a positive influence on the market growth.

For instance, Biohaven Pharmaceutical Holding Company Ltd., a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, which was examining Zavegepant for the treatment of acute migraines, has commenced the clinical trial on the same drug to mitigate the neuro-immune consequences among COVID-19 patients.


However, a decline in clinical visits and procedural treatment of migraines due to social distancing norms has impacted the market growth.
