Although narcolepsy is a rare and underdiagnosed chronic condition, many cases have been reported of the people affected by this disease. It was estimated that more than 1 in 2,000 people in the U.S. were affected by narcolepsy in 2012. Increase in severity of the disease and rise in the number of people being affected by narcolepsy are some of the key driving factors of the market.
