Report Overview

The global cognitive assessment and training in healthcare market size was valued at USD 3.42 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 25.5% from 2022 to 2030. The increasing incidence of dementia, rising awareness of cognitive health, and growing adoption of technologically advanced cognitive assessment & training tools are some of the key factors expected to drive the industry’s growth over the forecast period. The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant influence on cognitive assessment and training pertaining to the disruptions in the supply chain of hardware components required for computer-based assessment and training tools. In the early phase of the pandemic, some countries implemented lockdowns that significantly hampered the ability to carry out routine cognitive assessments and medical treatments in hospitals. The market experienced a minor decline for a short span in 2020. However, it is now on a positive trajectory with major signs of recovery.

U.S. cognitive assessment and training in healthcare market size, by assessment, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The 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 the losses experienced during the 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 the growing 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 a total of 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 the healthcare sector.

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.

Assessment Insights

The pen & paper-based assessment segment dominated the market with a revenue share of 47.7% in 2021 owing to easy availability and affordability. Although they require more time to administer, they offer the advantage of testing more cognitive capabilities. The results of the 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 to gauge the severity of a brain injury and cognitive impairment.

The hosted assessment segment is expected to witness a CAGR of 26.6% 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 2021, the services component held the largest revenue share of 59.30% owing to an increase in the 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 witness a CAGR of 25.6% over the forecast period, owing to an increase 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.

Researchers and healthcare professionals can instantly access the results after uploading cognitive test data, enabling effective review, cleaning, and analysis.

Application Insights

The clinical trials segment held a majority of the revenue share of 41.0% in 2021 and is expected to retain its position during the forecast period. Clinical testing of drug safety and efficacy is extremely difficult when treating the central nervous system. Study teams can improve the success rate of their trials by using cognitive assessments to make quicker and more informed judgments about their potential therapeutic drug. Numerous organizations provide objective assessments and solutions that aid thousands of researchers working on different symptoms and stages of the development of any drug. Market players support clinical trials by providing validated and sensitive computerized cognitive assessments tested rater training and data quality systems.
