The factors causing grand mal seizures are-neurotransmitter imbalances-which are also influenced by fatigue, lack of sleep, hypertension, stress, intense lighting, rapid motion, blood sugar level, anxiety, etc.

The grand mal seizures market will respond very positively for any novel acting drug molecules due to poor efficacy and efficiency of the available drugs.

The market for grand mal seizures also undergoes from the high cost of clinical trials and extensive post market surveillance.

A significant growth in sensitivity towards patient safety and regulatory compliance may hamper the market growth, especially, in the US. Furthermore, due to rising stringency of FDA such as pre-market approval and focus on evidence for efficacy, efficiency as well as patient safety may slow the growth of the market.
