Deep brain stimulation is the surgery for implanting a device that sends a signal to brain areas responsible for body movement. DBS helps in reducing the symptoms of stiffness, slowness, and walking problems caused by various neurological diseases such as dystonia, Parkinson’s disease, or essential tremor. This therapy is generally recommended to patients who do not respond to medicines for at least five years. Moreover, this treatment is approved by the U.S. FDA for patients who cannot have epilepsy surgery, which separates or removes the part of the brain that causes seizures. Thus, the rising prevalence of neurological conditions, such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease is the major factor driving the growth of the market.

Increasing prevalence of neurological disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease, essential tremors, dystonia, and epilepsy, is a high-impact rendering driver for the deep brain stimulators market. According to WHO, neurological diseases contribute 6.3% to the global disease burden and are one of the major causes of mortality worldwide, resulting in 13.2% deaths in developed countries and 16.8% in low- and middle-income countries. High mortality and disease burden create clinical urgency for the incorporation of long-term solutions such as deep brain stimulators. Furthermore, growing awareness about the massive neurological disease burden has raised the demand for deep brain stimulators as an alternative therapy. This is expected to drive market growth during the forecast period.

Furthermore, technological advancements in deep brain stimulation technologies are anticipated to create growth opportunities in this market. These technological improvements include robot-assisted implantation, improved microelectrode designs, multi-target stimulation, rechargeable implantable pulse generators, and personalized directed programming. Owing to these advancements, DBS devices are showing fewer adverse effects and improved efficacy and symptomatic relief in patients suffering from Parkinson’s, as compared to the traditional methods. For instance, Abbott's Infinity Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) System is a technologically enhanced new DBS that can help patients with their symptoms. It is the first wireless iOS software DBS mobile platform that offers efficient and personalized therapy management with reduced risk of adverse effects.

Countries such as U.S. and Canada have witnessed a high prevalence rate of movement and psychiatric disorders coupled with an increasing geriatric population. For instance, according to Parkinson's Foundation, symptoms of PD are common at an average age of 60. The geriatric population is highly susceptible to these disorders. Similarly, according to Canadian Psychological Association, around 2.0% of the population is suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder. Moreover, an increase in FDA approvals for deep brain stimulation devices in clinical applications, such as tremors, severe obsessive compulsive disorders, and dystonia, is fueling the market. For instance, in March 2020, NeuroPace, Inc. received approval from the U.S. FDA of MRI labeling for its RNS System. These factors are expected to boost the demand for DBS devices in these countries.

Furthermore, severe adverse effects and drug interactions owing to drug absorption by non-targeted sites are anticipated to boost the need for a targeted therapy approach, propelling the demand for DBS devices. These drugs can offer significant improvements in motor function; however, they may lead to adverse effects, particularly when the disease progresses. For instance, constant administration of the drug levodopa may result in long-term complications such as hallucinations, dyskinesia, neurotoxic effects, and severe metabolic changes. Thus, adverse effects such as these drive the clinical need to incorporate alternatives based on targeted therapy approaches, including deep brain stimulators. This, in turn, is boosting the market growth during the forecast period.

Product Insights

The dual-channel segment dominated the market for deep brain stimulation devices and accounted for a revenue share of 57.2% in 2020 owing to its higher adoption in surgical procedures.
