Report Overview

The global brain computer interface market size was valued at USD 1.74 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a compound annual growth rate CAGR of 17.5% during the forecast period. Key drivers of the brain computer interface (BIC) market include the increasing prevalence of neuroprosthetic conditions, rising global geriatric population base, and rapid technological developments facilitating communication and movement in paralytic patients. Furthermore, the use of this technology in virtual gaming, home control systems, and military communication enhance the applicability of the market, fueling its growth. The COVID-19 pandemic severely affected the market. Market players, such as Natus, reported an impact on their supply chain during the pandemic. This is because most of their materials are single source and need lengthy qualification periods.

Disruptions in the supply chain negatively impacted their ability to produce and supply finished products. The increasing prevalence of neurodegenerative disorders, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and epilepsy are expected to create the demand for BCI over the forecast period. According to the WHO report, around 82 million people will be affected by dementia by 2030 and this number will reach 152 million by 2050. This shows the potential demand for BCI in the coming years. The BCI technology is increasingly being used in mobile & virtual gaming industries by integrating within Virtual Reality (VR) headsets & gaming content. According to the data published by MyGaming in 2018, there were about 1.8 billion gamers worldwide and over 171 million VR gamers.

Virtual gaming has unfolded new opportunities for mind-controlled headsets and gadgets, which is further fueling the adoption. The manufacturers are focusing on the development of BCI-enabled video games. For instance, in March 2019, Valve planned to launch video games using the BCI technology. Such innovations are anticipated to propel market growth over the forecast period. Brain computer interface systems are optimally suited for the control of smart home applications with high accuracy and reliability. Home control systems include an application of P300-based technology—an event-related potential component, which helps in decision-making; to carry out various activities.

Some of these activities include opening & closing doors & windows, switching on & off lights, controlling the TV set & music systems, and operating a video camera at the entrance. The aforementioned factors are expected to increase the market penetration in the coming years. The increasing global geriatric population is another growth propeller for the market. Presently, there are more than 52 million people of age 65 years and above in the U.S. alone, and the number is anticipated to double by 2060. The rising geriatric population is expected to heighten the susceptibility towards chronic conditions, such as diabetes, cardiovascular disorder, and sleep disorder, thereby creating the need for BCI technology for a better living style.

Product Insights

On basis of product, the market can be segmented into invasive, partially invasive, and non-invasive BCI. Non-invasive BCI held the largest revenue share of 86.0 % in 2022 owing to the high applicability of this technology to products, such as headsets, amplifiers, and gaming sticks, contributing to the massive revenue generation. This system is considered to be the safest as the approach is less intrusive, which is further fueling the segment growth. In addition, numerous research projects are going on in this field. For instance, in June 2019 Carnegie Mellon University in collaboration with the University of Minnesota developed the first-ever mind-controlled robotic arm using BCI technology, which can track and follow a computer cursor.

A product like this is anticipated to boost market growth in the foreseeable future. The invasive segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR over the forecast period owing to the ability of this technology to provide the functionality to paralyzed people through brain-controlled robotic legs & arms and restore vision by connecting the brain to an external camera. The invasive device is positioned in the grey matter and is prone to building up scar tissue. Partially invasive BCI is also expected to show significant growth over the forecast period owing to its easy adaptability and various technological advancements. For instance, in September 2019, Synchron Inc. launched Stentrode, a partially invasive neural interface technology to record brain activities wirelessly.

Application Insights

On basis of application, the market has been segmented into healthcare, smart home control, communication & control, and entertainment & gaming. The healthcare segment captured the largest share of 61.7% in 2022 owing to the high applicability of this technology in the treatment of sleep disorders, neurological diseases, paralytic patients, and in studying neuroscience. Moreover, technological advancement & increasing number of initiatives by the key industry players are further fueling the segment growth. For instance, in June 2018, Medtronic launched a new clinician programmer for deep brain stimulation therapy along with Activa (TM) Programming Application.

In October 2018, Advanced Brain Monitoring Inc. received a grant from the National Institute on Aging to develop robot-assistive interventions in aging & dementia. The initiatives like these are contributing to the dominant share of the healthcare segment. The smart home control segment is projected to witness a lucrative CAGR due to increased demand for a better lifestyle. With smart home controls, people are experiencing better convenience and comfort right from security monitoring, operating entertainment systems & appliances to maintaining connectivity. The aforementioned factors are expected to propel the segment growth over the forecast period.

End-use Insights

On basis of end uses, the global market has been further segmented into medical, military, and others. The medical segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 46.3%  in 2022 of the global revenue owing to its application in assisting disabled patients. The BCI technology assists in the movement of patients suffering from diseases, such as Parkinsonism, epilepsy, paralysis, and Alzheimer’s, to carry out activities independently, such as an operating wheelchair, prosthetics, and various other instruments.

Global brain computer interface market share, by enduse, 2021 (USD Million)

The military end-use segment is expected to register the fastest growth rate over the forecast period on account of to increased usage of BCI during war activities. The development of mobile robots that can function as weapon-equipped drones in war zones and advanced communication systems, such as Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) “Silent Talk”, which would enable soldiers and military personnel to give commands via telepathic communication, is anticipated to contribute to the growth of this segment.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest revenue share of 39.5% in 2022, primarily due to the high R&D investments and a large number of clinical trials being conducted on brain devices in this region. In addition, the rising incidence of neurodegenerative conditions, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Huntington’s disease in this region are expected to propel market growth. In addition, the rising demand for immersive gaming is expected to lead to the development of technologies, such as augmented brain-computer interfaces that further boost the adoption of BCI technology in this region.

Brain Computer Interface Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

The market in the Asia Pacific region is expected to exhibit the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Significant untapped opportunities; increasing healthcare expenditure, and growing awareness amongst patients are expected to drive the demand for BCIs in this region. Low-cost manufacturing sites and favorable taxation policies in these countries have attracted foreign players to invest in this lucrative market. Intensive R&D had led to the launch of many innovative products. For instance, in May 2018, Compumedics collaborated with China-based Health 100 to improve its product portfolio in sleep technology. In March 2019, Integra received approval for DuraGen Dural Regeneration Matrix in Japan, which helped in the company’s regional expansion.
