Neurosurgical instruments are used in surgical treatments of a variety of neurological conditions and disorders, including Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, traumatic brain injury, and severe spinal cord injuries. As reported by Neuro numbers in 2019, neurological disorders have one of the highest incidence rates in the world, with an estimate of 1 in 6 individuals expected to have one or more neurological conditions.
The neurosurgery device market was valued at USD 7,280 million in 2019 and is expected to grow with a CAGR of 13.2% during the forecast period.
The rising prevalence of neurological disorders, such as epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease, has surged the need for neurological devices globally. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports reveal that more than 6 million people die because of cerebral stroke each year; over 80% of these deaths take place in low and middle-socioeconomic countries. Further, more than 50 million people have epilepsy, and 47.5 million people have dementia globally. Also, for years now, Alzheimer's disease has been the most common cause of dementia and contributes to 60–70% of cases, showing a trend in the catalyzed spread of these conditions throughout the globe.
The surging incidence rate of neurological diseases in North America and European regions drive the market growth. As per the CDC, neurological disorders became the sixth leading cause of mortality in the U.S. An estimate by the Parkinson's Disease Foundation showed that every year approximately around 60,000 people are diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in the U.S., and the number of cases has gone up by many folds with years. Similarly, in Europe, the National Health Service U.K. has witnessed such conditions leading to the expense of approximately USD 4billion in the year 2017–2018 on people with severe neurological conditions.
The prime factor driving the market growth is the rising awareness concerning the safer means of neurosurgery and treatments and surging demand among end-users who are influenced predominantly for opting these products. One of such influencers is the introduction of micro-invasive means of neurosurgery. Conventional brain surgeries are usually open surgeries, but with the advancement in biomedical engineering powered by technology, most surgeries are now micro-invasive, which has reduced risk factors by folds. In August 2020, an Israel based company, Rapid Medical was granted European regulatory clearance to introduce and commercialize its TIGERTRIEVER XL device for removing large ischemic stroke-causing clots from intracranial vessels.
The neurostimulation devices segment dominates the market with the presence of advanced neurostimulation devices, supported by the availability of clinical data regarding the safety and efficacy of the devices. Also, these devices are approved by medical bodies before commercialization, enabling surgeons to prescribe and adopt these means for the treatment of several neurological disorders.
Most frequently sold neurosurgery instruments include curettes, which are used for precise and delicate microsurgery, such as neurosurgery, dissectors. Apart from these, key players have also put forward huge innovations to put up a product portfolio that includes a wide variety of instruments suitable for a wide range of surgical procedures. A European company, Surgical Holdings, provides a product portfolio for all types of innovative neurosurgical instruments to perform safe and minimally invasive surgeries.
The Parkinson's disease segment holds the largest market share on account of the rising numbers in the geriatric population that is affected by the disease and increasing R&D activities. The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke states that the U.S. has been funding Parkinson's disease based research and clinical measures for prognosis. The American Brain Foundation with the state authorities is actively working to boost public awareness regarding the same.
North America leads the neurosurgery device market as the significant population has discovered or is already suffering from neurological disorders that demand surgeries as well as the presence of safe and quality healthcare infrastructure. The North American market is driven by a number of factors, including high occurrences of neurological diseases, increasing healthcare expenditure, technological developments, and a surging aging population. A report published by the Global Burden of Diseases in Lancet Neurology Journal reported that these neurological disorders were found to be the underlying cause in 9 million deaths or 16·5% of total global deaths in 2016. According to the World Health Organization, North America accounts for 7.02%ofthe global burden of neurological disorders. Alzheimer's Association data indicated that Alzheimer's disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the U.S.
Asia-Pacific is projected to unlock lucrative opportunities for the players in the neurosurgery device market on account of the rising population of geriatrics in China and India. Apart from this, surging consumer awareness, favorable government regulations, and growing medical tourism in the developing nations contributed to market growth. Recently, Alzheimer's research was funded by the Bill and Milanda Gates Foundation, aimed to prevent or slow the degeneration.
