U.S. non-invasive intracranial pressure monitoring devices market size

For instance, according to the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma, around 1.2 million people died globally in 2017, amounting to around 3,242 deaths per day due to road accidents. These injuries or trauma result in elevated intracranial pressure, which, in turn, would increase the demand for ICP monitoring devices, thus affecting the growth of the market positively. Furthermore, meningitis (brain infection) infects the cerebrospinal fluid, which leads to a rise in intracranial pressure. For instance, as per the WHO 2018 report, around 30,000 cases of meningitis are reported every year from sub-Saharan Africa. These devices constantly monitor intracranial pressure and allow neurosurgeons for the early recognition of the disease and its timely treatment, thus affecting the growth of the market positively.

Moreover, the rising demand for minimally invasive surgical techniques due to enhanced patient outcomes is a high-impact rendering driver in this market. Due to the invasive nature, high cost, and other additional risks of standard ICP monitoring methods, alternative non-invasive techniques have been sought for the measurement of elevated ICP. It is not feasible to use invasive techniques in several conditions, such as emergencies, due to a lack of skilled professionals. Thus, non-invasive methods, such as optic nerve sheath diameter, transcranial doppler ultrasonography, and MRI/CT, are considered to be promising techniques to overcome these problems.

For instance, Vittamed 205, developed by Vittamed Corporation, and Cerepress, which is developed by Third Eye Diagnostics, are designed to measure and monitor ICP non-invasively via the eye. Similarly, MMS-14 developed by Marchbanks Measurement Systems and HS-1000M Monitor developed by HeadSense Medical, Ltd., use acoustic sound to measure and monitor the ICP non-invasively through ears. They are intended to be used in patients with stroke, traumatic brain injuries/concussions, hydrocephalus, neurological conditions, and other pathologies that may lead to intracranial hyper- and hypotension. Thus, various benefits associated with these procedures are contributing to market growth.

Furthermore, the development of technologically advanced ICP monitoring devices has reduced direct human interference in surgical procedures. These devices are lowering the drawbacks of earlier invasive-type devices, such as an impulsive shift in baseline pressure and leveling and de-bubbling linked with fluid-filled techniques. Some of the recent innovations include high-definition microscopic cameras, remote navigation systems, data recorders, motion sensors, and robotic-controlled catheters and transducers. Key market players are involved in extensive research and development activities to develop technologically advanced devices. For instance, in November 2016, Medtronic signed an agreement with University Hospitals. Under this agreement, they will work together to improve the operational efficiency and workflow of various procedures, including electrophysiology and catheterization. This is expected to boost market growth during the forecast period.

Countries such as the U.S. and Canada have witnessed a high prevalence rate of neurological disorders and trauma cases. For instance, according to the report published by the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma in 2020, trauma is one of the leading causes of death in the U.S. for individuals aged up to 45. In addition, the presence of technologically advanced healthcare infrastructure and increasing patient awareness regarding the benefits associated with minimally invasive surgeries are among the major factors contributing to market growth. Furthermore, a rise in the number of road accidents is anticipated to boost the demand for intracranial pressure monitoring devices. For instance, according to the report by the Brain Injury Association of Waterloo-Wellington (BIAWW), over 11,000 individuals die due to brain-related injuries in Canada every year and more than 6,000 become permanently disabled post injuries. This is anticipated to boost the market growth over the forecast period.

Furthermore, the global geriatric population is increasing at a high rate. According to the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, currently, the global population is 7.7 billion, which is expected to increase to 9.7 billion by 2050. The geriatric population is prone to various neurological conditions as well as traumatic brain injuries. Thus, the increasing geriatric population worldwide is expected to be a high-impact rendering driver for the market during the forecast period. Moreover, the high geriatric population in Asian countries, such as Japan and China, presents a number of untapped opportunities, thereby boosting the market growth during the forecast period. As per estimates, more than 20% of the population in Japan is over the age of 65 years. According to a report by the WHO, fall-related injuries in the elderly are a major health and social concern in China, with approximately 18% to 44% of the elderly people reporting falls.

Type Insights

Based on type, the market is segmented into transcranial doppler ultrasonography, tympanic membrane displacement (TMD), optic nerve sheath diameter, MRI/CT, and fundoscopy (papilledema). The MRI/CT segment dominated the market with a share of 28.34% in 2019. These devices help to get results faster and safely as well as they are easy to use and provide excellent images with high contrast between pathologic and normal tissues. Moreover, MRI/CT scans are the widely preferred imaging devices owing to their higher sensitivity to assess patients with traumatic brain injuries with elevated ICPs. Thus, increasing applications in the diagnosis and staging of neurological diseases as well as its advantages over other imaging modalities have fueled the growth of this segment.

The optic nerve sheath diameter segment is expected to register the highest CAGR of 6.9% from 2020 to 2027 as it is the most appropriate and widely preferred modality for emergency medical situations, such as severe head trauma, hydrocephalus, and intracranial hemorrhage. Moreover, increasing patient preference for non-invasive procedures and high preference among physicians are expected to drive the segment.
