The Americas, Europe, the Middle East & Africa (MEA), and Asia Pacific (APAC) are the major segments according to region.
The Americas are presumed to dominate the global market till 2023 due to the increased healthcare budget by governments in the region for the welfare of their patients. Presence of large number of players and continuous development of drugs due to ongoing clinical trials are other drivers of the region.
Europe, on the other hand, can enjoy massive demand due to support by government for research and development and initiatives taken by them to improve existing reimbursement insurance policies.
The APAC region is likely to witness the fastest growth due to developments in healthcare technology, drug developments undertaken by contract research organizations, and a large patient pool. The large health expenditure is an indicator of the growth of the global Dravet syndrome market in the region. According to the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, the health expenditure in Australia was 170.4 billion in 2015-2016.
The MEA region can showcase dull growth due to poor medical infrastructure and low awareness among patients.
