U.S. neurothrombectomy devices market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

Neurothrombectomy devices are critical in treating ischemic stroke, a commonly occurring phenomenon of stroke among older adults. Modern lifestyle, stress, and dietary habits have been observed to result in the risk of stroke among adults older than 40 years. Stroke is the leading cause of disability among the elderly with around 65% of patients requiring physical assistance/support post an episode of stroke. According to WHO, approximately 15 million people worldwide are expected to suffer from stroke, each year. Since the neurothrombectomy procedure improves functional outcomes and lowers the mortality rate in patients, therefore, it is the most preferred treatment for acute ischemic stroke. Thereby, boosting the market growth during the forecast period.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has negatively impacted the market by directly affecting the demand & production, creating a disruption in the supply chain and increasing the financial burden on firms. The impact of the outbreak on the market varies as per the country, depending on the local state of health systems and the actions taken to combat the pandemic. Neurocare and neurosurgeons have been adversely impacted by the pandemic. To reduce the spread of the coronavirus, brain surgeries have frequently been postponed or even canceled during this timeframe. In worst-affected nations, such as the U.S., Russia, India, Brazil, France, U.K., Italy, and Spain, neurosurgical operations decreased by 55%.

However, according to a research study “COVID-19 and Hospital: A review” published in Elsevier journal (International Hemorrhagic Hospital Association) (Jan 2021), up to 36% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients might exhibit neurological symptoms and there were several cases related to ischemic & hemorrhagic infarction. These findings also suggest that COVID-19 might enhance sales in the neurology industry, especially for neurothrombectomy devices. Thus, these factors are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the market to grow in the near future, providing profitable opportunities for key players post COVID-19.

Stroke is the most common cause of death, followed by heart and cancer diseases worldwide. For instance, according to World Health Organization (WHO), in 2016, 15.2 million deaths of the 56.9 million deaths worldwide were due to stroke. Acute Ischemic Stroke (AIS) is the most common form of stroke, caused due to reduced blood supply to the brain, making brain cells die.

For instance, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 87.0% of strokes are classified as ischemic strokes, with the U.S. being the most commonly affected country. According to the Southwestern Medical Center, about 795,000 people in the U.S. suffer from a stroke every year. Furthermore, according to National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), strokes occur more commonly in women than men, especially in the elderly population (aged 55 to 65).
