Industry Insights

The global Electroencephalography (EEG) systems/devices market size was valued at USD 687.6 million in 2015 and is anticipated to grow at 7.6% over the forecast period. Increasing prevalence of neurological disorders and rising awareness about these disorders are major factors contributing toward the growth of the market. According to the Society for Neuroscience, around 38% of the European Union population is suffering from one or the other form of mental disorder. Moreover, these conditions cost Europeans more than USD 902.43 billion each year. Hence, in order to detect brain abnormalities in early stages, the demand for advanced EEG products is high and is expected to grow at high rate in the near future.

Escalating R&D investments by manufacturers to provide advanced brain monitoring devices is another major factor significantly contributing toward the growth of the market. For instance, Natus Medical, Inc. invested around USD 30.4 million for R&D in the 2015. The companies are investing in R&D for existing product improvement and new product development to fulfil the increasing demand for advanced devices by customers.
