Global Neurostimulation Devices Market Expected to Be Driven by High Disease Prevalence and Need for Alternate Treatment Methods

Globally, there is a huge population suffering from various neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, essential tremor, chronic pain, Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS), epilepsy, depression and others. It is estimated that currently there are about 50 million people worldwide suffering from epilepsy. The prevalence of Parkinson’s disease is estimated to be around 1% of the total world population. About 80% of the people all over the world have suffered from pain at some point or the other in their lives. Also, with the increase in the aged population (the population which is 60 years or above), the prevalence of diseases such as Parkinson’s and chronic pain are expected to increase.

In addition, the existing treatment methodologies for some neurological diseases have not proven effective in many patients. Hence there is a demand for alternate treatments such as neurostimulation which can ease the disease symptoms and improve the quality of life for the patient.

The US is the Biggest Market for Neurostimulation Devices Market and is Driven by Increasing Patient Awareness and Availability of Reimbursement

The US remains the biggest market for neurostimulation devices. It is expected to reach a size of almost $3.5 billion by 2016, which is about 70% of the size of the global market for neurostimulation devices. The growth is mainly expected to be driven by growing awareness about neurostimulation techniques among the large patient population and wider acceptance of this treatment by physicians for the treatment of disease symptoms which do not respond to traditional methods such as drug therapies or surgery.

Medtronic, Inc of the US is the market leader in the global market for neurostimulation devices. It occupies a market share of 59% in the neurostimulation devices market worldwide. Medtronic manufactures and markets both DBS and SCS devices. It offers different products such as Activa PC, Activa RC, Kinetra and RestoreUltra, among many others, used in the treatment of various disease symptoms. The market for neurostimulation devices has very few major players. However, there are a growing number of start-ups and venture capitalist firms that are expected to enter the market with new innovative devices to help provide better therapeutic efficiency to the patients. Some of the other major firms in this market are St. Jude Medical, Inc, Boston Scientific Corp. and Cyberonics, Inc.
