Brain Monitoring Systems Market

Brain Monitoring Systems Market: Increasing Incidence of Traumatic Brain Injuries and Brain Aneurysm Disorders Expected to Fuel Growth: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 - 2028

Market to Witness Healthy Competition Due to Increasing Consolidations among Key Players

Increase in product consolidations activities, including sales and service agreements, collaborations, rising research and development activities, new product launches, joint ventures, partnerships, patent transfers and mergers & acquisitions among global and regional players are a characteristic phenomenon of the overall competition in the global brain monitoring system market. Additionally, provision of after sales services, such as software update and up gradations.

Many global players have also installed new manufacturing and after sales service set-ups in countries, such as China, Japan, Brazil and Mexico, to increase the reach of their products. The aforesaid consolidated factors are anticipated to propel the growth of the brain monitoring market over the forecast period.

Increasing Acceptance of Neuro and Brain Related Studies in Developing Nations

Emerging countries especially in the Asia pacific region, such as China and India, are anticipated to be top hotspot destination for investment opportunities for key players. It is due to the high diagnosis growth rate, research activities, quality improvisations, increasing healthcare modernization in these countries.

To increase revenue share, medical device manufacturing companies should focus on improving their research and development activities for brain monitoring systems such as, Standard Electroencephalography (EEG) Systems, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Systems and other emerging systems such as Functional Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (fNIRS) with advanced facilities. Such steps will add growth into the brain monitoring devices market over the forecast period.

Increasing demand for high end, advanced brain monitoring systems from end users, such as hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, clinics and neonatal & pediatric Intensive care units (NICUs/PICUs) for better output and performance, will generate opportunities for launching of novel brain monitoring techniques in the market over the long run.

Rising Use of Brain Monitoring Systems in Large Integrated Healthcare Facilities

The use of brain monitoring systems has skyrocketed over the past decades. Brain monitoring systems has helped brain to gain insights of function, modulation, and pathology of the brain. The growing number of life threatening brain related neurological diseases and brain trauma injuries have led to  a significant increase in the usage for EEG standard and MRI systems for brain monitoring across hospitals and clinics and other healthcare facilities.

Increase in Number of Brain Aneurysm and Traumatic Brain Injury Cases

According to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation, around 500,000 people lose their lives each year to brain aneurysm. Also, around six million people in the U.S. i.e. one in 50 people suffer from brain aneurysm each year. Rise in geriatric population is expected to boost overall demand for brain monitoring systems. As per an independent study, brain aneurysm is quite predominant in the age group of 35-60 years.

According to the Canadian Institute of Health Research (CIHR), as of 2015, annual incidences of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is estimated to be around 600/100,000 in North America and Europe. The epidemiology of mild traumatic brain injuries is almost two-third, which occur in males and are most common in young (35–50 years) and elderly (65 years and above).

Brain monitoring systems are used in neurological testing for detection of any abnormality in the functioning of the brain cells (neurons) that leads to development of neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, dementia, brain tumor, sleep disorder, and Alzheimer’s. These systems also allows to observe and identify activity of neurons without invasive neurosurgery. 

This systems mainly monitors brain functions such neural activity, pressure surrounding the brain, cerebral oxygen capacity, tumor and strokes, blood pressure, traumatic cranial injury, and other critical conditions and aid in avoiding severe consequences. The non-invasive brain monitoring systems like MRI, EEG, MEG, fNRI etc. have increased demand in the global market. These mostly preferred for scanning anatomical pathologies in brain and understand structural and functional activity of neurons.

The brain monitoring systems forms the integral part of neuroimaging and radiological procedures. In the report, the market of brain monitoring systems captures the installed base market of non-invasive brain monitoring systems with focus on MRI, EEG, MEG and fNRI systems only.
