The screening & diagnostics segment is likely to witness a significant CAGR over the forecast period. Cognitive assessments are ideal as an effective screening tool to support collaboration with neuropsychologists, neurosurgeons, and other specialists to make evidence-based decisions about next-best steps in the treatment of a patient. Neurologists can more effectively pinpoint deficiencies and strengthen help in diagnosis and subsequently monitor recovery as therapy continues with support of a quantitative assessment of a patient's brain health.

Market Dynamics

Demand for online cognitive assessment and training solutions increased during the pandemic due to better access to technology and the adoption of telehealth, thus mitigating losses experienced in initial phase of the pandemic. As neurological impacts have been observed in COVID-19 patients, tracking cognitive capacity has become a crucial activity, thus contributing to market growth.

According to Alzheimer’s Association, more than 153 million individuals will develop dementia by 2050, up from 57 million in 2019. The anticipated increase is mainly due to rising geriatric population. According to data published by the World Health Organization in February 2019, the total geriatric population in the world is anticipated to reach 1.4 billion by 2030.

As mobile technologies become more accessible, they are increasingly being used in cognitive assessment and clinical research for patient recruitment, data collection, symptom monitoring, and health management. Gamification and serious activity for health self-monitoring and management have experienced a significant increase in popularity in healthcare sector. In 2022, the University of Oxford collaborated with Cambridge Cognition for the Impact of Semaglutide in Amyloid Positivity (ISAP) study to provide cognitive assessments.

Numerous apps have been created to train the brain and challenge the brain, and health-related apps make up a significant portion of this industry. For instance, CogniFit is an interactive game and brain-training app designed to help develop up to 22 more skills, including attention, processing speed, concentration, reaction time, and more. It also helps to improve short-term memory.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest revenue share of more than 37.0% in 2023. The increasing prevalence of dementia, adoption of technologically advanced assessment tools, and significant expenditure on cognitive research are some factors attributed to growth of market. There has been a steady growth in the number of patients with cognitive impairment in the region, which fuels demand for cognitive assessment. Government initiatives such as Aging's Alzheimer's Disease Supportive Services Program support state efforts to develop adaptive, comprehensive, and sustainable service delivery systems for patients with Alzheimer's disease. In June 2022, LifeWorks launched an internet-based cognitive behavioral therapy (iCBT) program in Canada & the U.S. to address signs of burnout for workers in healthcare sector.

Cognitive Assessment And Training In Healthcare Market Trends, by Region, 2024 - 2030

Assessment Insights

The pen & paper-based assessment segment dominated with a revenue market share of more than 47% in 2023 owing to easy availability and affordability. Although administration time required is more, the assessments offer the advantage of testing more cognitive capabilities. The results of tests, which evaluate different aspects of cognitive functioning including short-term memory, attention, concentration, working memory, visual-spatial ability, reaction time, and information processing speed, can help clinicians gauge severity of a brain injury and cognitive impairment.

Hosted assessment segment is expected to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period owing to better access to technology, growing adoption of telehealth, and increasing adoption of mobile technology for gamification in cognitive assessment and training. In addition, computerized cognitive assessments continue to become reimbursable over time using CPT codes due to the latest advancements in neuropsychological testing. Hosted assessment makes it possible for a medical assistant as well as other non-specialized staff members to deliver assessments reliably, potentially assisting neurologists in doing better assessments and treating more patients.

Component Insights

In 2023, services component held a revenue share of more than 50.0% owing to an increase in demand for advanced services offered by market players. Companies are offering services such as training & support, and consulting for rater qualification, training, and management that equip raters to administer scales most efficiently while adhering to the highest standards. For instance, the experimental technique used by Cogstate, a U.S.-based company, removes pointless training, makes use of a tailored eLearning curriculum, lessens the burden of rater certification, and speeds up the commencement of a study.

The solution segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period, owing to a rise in the number of technologically advanced solutions offered by market players. Various solutions offered by businesses are digital assessments, data analysis & reporting, and data management. Market players offer online data management solutions in addition to digital cognitive assessment tools for effective data storage and continuing management of data discrepancies. Researchers and healthcare professionals can instantly access the results after uploading cognitive test data, enabling effective review, cleaning, and analysis.
