Furthermore, the rise in patented research in the field of optogenetics and two-photon microscopy for better visualization of neuronal circuits is also attributive towards the anticipated growth of this sector.
North America neuroscience market, by technology, 2012 - 2020 (USD Million)
Whole brain imaging, neuro-microscopy, and electrophysiology technologies and related equipment used for research combined to form the largest share of revenue generated in 2014.
Major factors attributing to this large share is the inherently capital intensive nature of equipment for these technologies and their pivotal role in almost all forms of R&D projects implemented in this industry. Owing to, the expected development of techniques such as PET, MRI, and various advanced microscopes, these segments are expected to witness considerable growth in demand over the forecast period.
Due to seemingly innovative and breakthrough developments in the fields of neuro-proteomic analysis and neuro-cellular manipulation, the segments are also expected to witness lucrative growth through to 2020.
Optogenetics in combination with other techniques such as two-photon microscopy and confocal microscopy is expected to exhibit healthy growth in the coming years owing to its application in neuro-simulation and behavioral analysis.
Technology Components’ Insights
Instrumentation for neuroscience R&D accounted for the largest share of revenue in 2013 owing to their inherent capital-intensive nature. The parts used in the equipment are replaceable but are expensive and are expected to stand certain specifications. Additionally, instruments in the neuroscience sector are of great use in the diagnosis of chronic diseases such as brain tumor and brain cell damage associated diseases.
Data analysis & related services for the purpose of information processing and storage of real-time data obtained from these studies also forms a considerable share of industry owing to its skilled labor intensive nature and need for long-term data storage facilities such as in case of brain function – age-related studies in primate and non-primate animal models.
These segments are expected to grow at a considerable rate over the forecast period owing to the introduction of further technological development in data storage techniques and biologically efficient algorithms.
North America dominated the neuroscience market in 2013, with revenue valued at over USD 9,500 million. The presence of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure, strong government initiatives and funding for neuroscience research, and the presence of high patient numbers suffering from CNS disorders are some factors driving growth in this region.
Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the fastest growth from 2015 to 2020 due to the presence of high unmet medical needs, rising patient awareness regarding nervous system disorders, and rising healthcare expenditures in emerging economies of India and China.
