Migraine, a condition of recurring headaches and is accompanied by symptoms like nausea, vomiting, dizziness and sensitivity to light and noise ranks among the World's Top 20 disabling medical illnesses. It is anticipated that launches of many generic migraine drugs over the next several years will steadily increase diagnosis and drug-treatment rates, leading to sustained annual global growth of anti-migraine drugs market. Other factors contributing to the growth of these drugs include awareness among the people about proper diagnosis and treatment of migraine, rise in medical expenditures and new drugs launches.
Acute migraine treatment market is dominant by Triptans and most of them are available as pills. Triptans like Sumatriptan and Zolmitriptan are also available as nasal sprays whereas rizatriptan and zolmitriptan are available as tablets that dissolve in mouth.

Growing awareness of migraine in the emerging countries and fall in prices will facilitate the growth of anti-migraine drugs market. In addition, with the development of new treatment therapies like calcitonin gene-related peptides (CGRP) receptor antagonist and BOTOX the demand for anti-migraine drugs is anticipated to grow further.
