The wearable EEG headsets market size is expected to grow owing to the rising prevalence of neurological disorders such as epilepsy, growing adoption of a stress-relieving technique, and rising awareness about its benefits such as memory retention & improving the cognitive function of the brain. According to WHO, about 50 million people globally have epilepsy and around 70% of people living suffering from epilepsy could live seizure-free if timely diagnosed and treated.

Electroencephalography (EEG) headsets sense the brain activity through electrodes positioned around the scalp of the user. The wearable EEG headsets are distinguished on the basis of type into dry electrode EEG headsets and wet electrode EEG headsets. Wet electrodes use saline fluid or conductive gel to improve the quality of signal; whereas dry EEG headsets are preferred over owing to its good quality reading and high accuracy. The wearable EEG headsets can be applied in medical research to diagnose certain medical conditions including epilepsy and sleep disorders. Also, it can be used for performance and wellness tracking, gaming and education, and research. EEG headset in the gaming sector is gaining a lot of traction now-a days, where children wear an EEG VR headset while playing the video game which are specifically designed to augment the cognitive skills of the child. Also, the brain activity shown on an EEG can be used to program gaming software to recognize typical thought patterns. Certain systems may distinguish moods and emotions such as boredom, enthusiasm, and irritation too. Gaming headsets are taught through repeated thought patterns and commands given to those patterns. Additionally, Headband-type and headset-type wearable EEG equipment are the two variants currently available on the market. Using headband-style instruments, the EEG signals from the forehead's non-hair-bearing region are measured. These gadgets are aesthetically pleasing, effective, and simple to set up. On the other hand, artefacts such as electrooculogram (EOG), electromyogram (EMG), and eye blinks may affect EEG signals captured from the frontal region of the brain. In contrast to headband-type EEG equipment, headset-type EEG devices typically measure EEG signals from multiple brain sites, including the temporal, parietal, and occipital cortices in addition to the frontal region. The BCI program can more accurately determine the user's mental state owing to EEG signals obtained from more brain areas. As a result, a wider variety of BCI applications can be used with headset-type EEG devices than with headband-type EEG devices.

In recent years, there has been substantial growth in the development and implementation of brain-computer interface (BCI) technology. The market for wireless EEG headsets is being propelled by consumers' growing healthcare concerns as well as the development of EEG-controlled video games. The demand for rapid justice via lie detectors is rising, and the WHO and other healthcare organizations are making significant sums to improve the accuracy of disease detection. However, its growth is thwarted by the headsets' unavailability in economically underdeveloped areas due to inadequate infrastructure and expensive running expenses, which restricts their use to mainly economically stable places. Despite this, the Asia-Pacific and LAMEA regions offer a significant possibility for market expansion due to a lack of developers and the availability of high capital investments.

The wearable EEG headsets market can be classified into:

Additionally, major companies involved in the wearable EEG headsets market include NeuroSky Inc., Emotiv, OpenBCI, Muse, Cognionics, Inc., Avertus Inc., and others. With the surge in demand for wearable EEG headsets, global manufacturers are speeding up their production processes while also upgrading them through the use of cost-effective solutions. For instance, InteraXon Inc. launched MuseTM, a wearable EEG device in the form of a headband that aids in meditation. Additional examples are BIOSEMI, EmotiveEPOC+, and Mindwave Mobile 2 by Neurosky Inc. (Brain Products Inc.). Although the signal quality of these wearable devices is limited, they, however, have advantages over traditional EEG devices in terms of cost, weight, portability, and ease of use.
