Global Chronic Migraine Treatment Market: Dynamics

High Prevalence of Migraine and Increasing Transition from Episodic to Chronic Migraine to Drive the Market

According to a report by the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2013, migraine was the 6th most common cause for a year lost due to disability across the globe. According to a study, titled “Lifting the Burden”, conducted by World Health Organization and other prominent institutes in 2011, the prevalence of migraine across the globe was around 11.0%. Other independent studies suggest this prevalence to be around 14.7%. Prevalence of migraine among females is supposed to be 2 to 3 times more than in men. According to The Migraine Trust of the U.K., around 2% of the world population is estimated to be affected by chronic migraine. Furthermore, it is estimated that around 2 to 3% of episodic migraine patients transitioned to chronic migraine patients. Migraine attacks are triggered by various factors such as environmental change, hormonal imbalance, and dietary change. Rise in incidences of these triggering factors is projected to increase the number of episodic migraine patients, which in turn, is likely to increase chronic migraine patients’ population.
