The global deep brain stimulation in parkinson's disease market size to be valued at USD 1.42 billion by 2028 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.5% during the forecast period. Increasing incidence of neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease (PD), growing awareness about the deep brain stimulation in PD, and supportive government policies and laws of the countries are expected to drive the market. Increasing prevalence of Parkinson’s disease is a high-impact rendering driver for the deep brain stimulators market.PD is the second most common neurodegenerative disorder after Alzheimer’s disease. According to Parkinson’s Foundation 2016 report, more than 10 million people globally are living with PD, whereas as per the statistics of Parkinson’s UK, in 2020, more than 145,000 people are living with Parkinson's disease in the U.K.

Deep Brain Stimulation in Parkinson's Disease size, by product

Deep brain stimulation devices have been observed to be greatly effective in controlling the tremors associated with PD. They provide electrical stimulation to the basal ganglia that result in suppressed neuronal activity, which is generally spontaneous in patients suffering from PD, thereby boosting the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, the aging population is more prone to Parkinson’s disease. People suffering from Parkinson’s disease are not able to release enough dopamine (which helps regulate the movement) in the brain, which leads to tremors, walking problems, and stiffness among other conditions. As per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), PD is largely diagnosed in people over the age of 60 and it is projected that PD affects 1% of the population over the age of 60 to 4% by age 80. Thus, the growing elderly population is majorly driving the market.

In addition, technological advancements in deep brain stimulator devices, such as robot-assisted implantation, improved microelectrode designs, multi-target stimulation, rechargeable implantable pulse generators (IPGs), personalized directed programming, and MRI, are anticipated to raise the demand for deep brain stimulators over the forecast period. For instance, during traditional surgery, DBS current is delivered through a 4-contact lead with cylindrical electrodes piled one above the other. Whereas, at present, recent improvised lead designs, including an 8 or 16-contact electrode, are used to deliver current over larger regions and multiple targets.

Furthermore, key players across all locations are continuously integrating unique technologies into their product lines to treat symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. For instance, Abbott's Infinity Deep Brain Stimulation System is a technologically enhanced new deep brain stimulator to help patients gain control of their symptoms. It also includes:

  • A wireless iOS software DBS mobile platform for more efficient and personalized therapy management
  • An innovative directional lead technology that allows physicians to accurately manage current for better patient outcomes and reduced risk of side effects
  • A rechargeable implantable pulse generator (IPGs) designed for patient comfort.

Thus, continuous product innovation and development in DBS devices by key players and recommendations by the neurologists and PD-specialized neurologists are further leading to the growth of this market.

Countries such as the U.S. and Canada have witnessed a high prevalence of neurological disorders in recent years. For instance, according to Parkinson’s Foundation, around one million people in the U.S. will be living with PD till 2020, which is more than the combined number of people living with Lou Gehrig’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and muscular dystrophy. In addition, around 60,000 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with PD every year.

Furthermore, an increase in government funding and initiatives for raising awareness about Parkinson’s disease (PD) is expected to drive the demand for deep brain stimulators. For instance, in 2015, Parkinson’s Foundation funded more than 40 research projects for PD. Additionally, the presence of major competitors, the availability of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure, and supportive government initiatives are responsible for the market growth in such countries. For instance, the National Institute of Neurological Disorder and Stroke (NINDS) supports research activities related to DBS for determining its safety and effectiveness in the treatment of PD.

Moreover, increasing incidence of Parkinson’s disease in some of the developed and developing countries has driven the launch of technologically advanced products in the market. For instance, in 2020, the U.S. FDA approved Abbott’s Infinity DBS system for targeted stimulation of internal globus pallidus, a new area of the brain, which is associated with symptoms of PD. Market players are making constant efforts for introducing technologically advanced products in the market. For instance, in January 2019, Boston Scientific Corporation unveiled the Vercise PC & Vercise Gevia DBS Systems, including Vercise Cartesia Directional Lead. This technology allows physicians to control the direction, shape, and position of electrical stimulation to monitor the progression of Parkinson's disease through customized therapy.
