Industry Insights

The global cranial implants market size was valued at USD 991.80 million in 2018 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 6.4% by 2026. Increasing prevalence of neurological diseases, injuries, wounds, and road accidents coupled with rising awareness among professionals is anticipated to propel the growth.

Cranial implants or reconstruction is required for restoring the skull contour, protecting intracranial structures, and normalizing cerebral hemodynamics. Traditional methods of cranial reconstruction majorly focused on bone reconstruction and do not account for the soft tissues. If soft tissues are not addressed, they may lead to the deformity after surgeries. Technological advancements such as customized cranial implants and 3D printing help overcome the issues associated with the traditional methods.

U.S. cranial implants market

Increasing road accidents and Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), among others are driving the market growth. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in U.S., around 2.8 million people suffer from TBI every year. It contributes to 30% of all the injury-related deaths in U.S.

Increasing adoption of customized 3D printed and ceramic cranial implants is driving the market. Improving healthcare infrastructure and various government initiatives in the developing economies is also expected to positively influence growth of the market in the forthcoming years.

Customized cranial implants are extensively used for the treatment of defects such as craniosynostosis. It is a condition wherein, bones in the infants’ skulls grow prematurely leading to problems with the brain growth and shape of the head. If not treated, craniosynostosis can cause permanent brain damage. Rise in the prevalence of craniosynostosis is expected to impel the demand for customized cranial implants, thereby driving the market.

Product Insights

Customized cranial implants segment is expected to lead the market during the forecast period owing to the rising preference for the product by the surgeons as every skull injury is different and requires specific implants. Increasing prevalence of brain tumors owing to genetic disorders and unhealthy lifestyle coupled with increasing injuries, wounds, and road accidents are expected to drive the demand, thereby influencing the segment growth.

Manufacturers of customized cranial implants are focusing on collaborations with the surgeons to increase their customer base and to strengthen their market presence. Such initiatives coupled with the presence of well-established and skilled practitioners in developed economies is expected to further drive the demand.

Technology advancements, such as introduction of 3D printing with original multilayer technology is anticipated to offer lucrative opportunities. For instance, Stryker in collaboration with surgeon of Johns Hopkins Hospital developed host bone model made using 3D printing technology. This model helps orient the implant and allows the surgeons in planning the surgery before the actual operation.

Material Insights

Polymer material is expected to hold the maximum share of the cranial implants market over the forecast period. Polymer is the most frequently used material. It is provided as powder and liquid that are combined to fit into the contours of the cranial defects during the surgery.

Ceramic material segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Application of light and sound to the brain have important therapeutic and diagnostic benefits. Ultrasound is the good therapy for the neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. However, material of cranial implants restricts the benefits. Ceramic cranial implant is able to transmit light and ultrasound to the brain. Thus, driving the market growth.

End Use Insights

Neurosurgery centers is the fastest growing segment owing to the specialized and customized treatment of the patients. Furthermore, better outcome of results in comparison to hospitals is also increasing the demand for neurosurgery centers. In addition, neurosurgery centers ensure that the patients receive personalized treatment with improved patient experience.

Global cranial implants market

Hospital is the leading segment due to the availability of skilled neurosurgeons and increasing disposable income of the individuals. Hospitals have neurological surgery departments with dedicated specialists. Mostly brain injuries, defects, and traumas require several treatment sessions, which is anticipated to propel the segment growth. Cranioplasty is one of major surgeries taking place in Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit (NCCU). Also, improving healthcare infrastructure in developing countries and growing adoption of advanced products are expected to drive the growth.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest market share in 2018 and is expected to continue witnessing substantial growth in near future due to prevalence of trauma and brain cancer, adoption of technologically advanced products, and increasing healthcare spending by the regional governments.

Asia Pacific is expected to expand at the highest CAGR due to increasing cases of neurological disorders coupled with rise in government initiatives and awareness programs by the NGOs. Presence of large number of industry players in economies, such as Japan, China, and India is majorly driving the growth. In addition, increasing cases of cancer is another key driver.
