Industry Outlook

The global deep brain stimulation devices market size was valued at USD 795.64 million in 2016. It is expected to experience a CAGR of 11.5% over the forecast period. Increasing prevalence of neurological diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, essential tremor, and dystonia, is one of the key trends promoting market growth. 

U.S. deep brain stimulation devices market

Prevalence of stress and obesity-induced depression across the globe is constantly increasing. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIHM), in 2012, 16.0 million adults had been through at least one major depressive episode in the U.S. In addition, as per WHO, more than 300.0 million adults worldwide are suffering from depression.

High mortality and disease burden create clinical urgency for incorporation of long-term solutions such as deep brain stimulators. The product been proved to play an important role in providing therapeutic solutions for depression, therefore a rise in the prevalence of such diseases is anticipated to present immense growth prospects during the forecast period.

Technological advancements in deep brain stimulators are estimated to shape growth of the market. These advancements include enhanced microelectrode designs, robot-assisted implantation, multi-target stimulation, integrated implantable pulse generators, individualized directed programming, and MRI. Due to these advancements in recent times, deep brain stimulators have demonstrated lesser adverse effects and greater efficacy and symptomatic relief in patients with movement disorders as compared to conventional methods.

In addition, potential benefits of deep brain stimulation therapy, such as better management of postoperative outcomes and long-term efficacy, are projected to facilitate growth over the forecast period. Furthermore, these advancements aid clinical researchers and physicians in investigational efficacy studies for usage of DBS in off-label clinical applications such as depression.

Application Insights

Parkinson's disease is a common neurodegenerative disorder with fewer treatment alternatives. In 2016, Parkinson's disease held the largest share in the market due to increase in the number of U.S. FDA approvals for DBS therapies that can be used in the treatment of the disease. Increasing prevalence of the disease is the primary factor contributing to the growth of the segment.

Long-term costs associated with medications for Parkinson’s disease is leading to an increase in adoption of DBS, thus resulting in a greater market share. According to the International Journal of Neurology and Neurotherapy, medication usage reduced by approximately 25% to 50% within 6 months of DBS placement in patients.

Epilepsy is likely to witness remarkable CAGR during the forecast period. DBS is used in epilepsy due to lower therapeutic response to medication in seizures and lower success rates associated with surgeries. Clinical studies such as Stimulation of Anterior Nucleus of Thalamus for Epilepsy (SANTE), conducted by Medtronic in 2012, demonstrated 69.0% reduction in seizure frequency.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the DBS market in 2016 owing to rising prevalence of movement and psychiatric disorders coupled with increasing geriatric population in the region. According to the Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF), symptoms of Parkinson's disease are common at an average age of 60. Increasing government funding and initiatives for raising awareness about movement disorders are poised to fuel the demand for deep brain stimulators in the region.

Global deep brain stimulation devices market

Asia Pacific is expected to be the most promising destination for DBS manufacturers during the forecast period. Rising prevalence of neurodegenerative and psychiatric disorders coupled with high unmet demand for effective and long-term treatment solutions is anticipated to supplement the growth of the regional market. Growing preference for clinical trials and high R&D investments by global players owing to availability of low cost labor in the region will also rev up the rate of adoption of seep brain stimulators in the region. 

Deep Brain Stimulators (DBS) Market Share Insights
