Market Dynamics

Rise in prevalence of old age population that is more vulnerable to epilepsy and Parkinson’s is the major key factor driving the market growth. For instance, according  to an article published by UpToDate Inc., in August 2021, the incidence rate of epilepsy increased with age and is highest in patients over 75 years of age. Thus, rise in prevalence of epilepsy among geriatric population drives the demand for brain implant devices to treat and manage the disease. 

In addition, upsurge in demand for minimally invasive devices. Patients are increasingly seeking treatments that offer higher success rates, less pain, and long-term effectiveness, all of which are benefits provided by brain implant. As a result, the demand for these implants is expected to increase, leading to a boost in market growth. Furthermore, key players in the industry are investing heavily in research and development activities, driving innovation and the introduction of advanced brain implant devices. These devices are designed to provide even greater efficiency and improved outcomes for patients, which is expected to further drive the demand and growth of the brain implant market opportunity.

In addition, manufacturers of brain implant are expanding their operations globally, launching their products in various regions worldwide.This is expected to increase market penetration, improve accessibility, and drive demand for brain implant across different regions. The growth of the brain implant market is expected to be driven by the availability of improved healthcare infrastructure, rise in prevalence of neurological diseases such as epilepsy and depression. Furthermore, the healthcare industry in developed economies is growing at a significant rate, owing to rise in demand for enhanced healthcare services, significant investments by government to improve healthcare infrastructure.

Moreover, the demand for brain implant is not only limited to developed countries but is also being witnessed in the developing countries, such as China and Brazil, which fuel the growth of the market. Further, rise in adoption of long term efficiency implants, as patients seek treatment options that offer long-term benefits, such as improved cognitive function, pain relief, and reduced symptoms, the demand for brain implant is expected to rise.

In addition, there has been an increase in awareness toward early diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders, which is another factor driving the growth of the brain implant market. Early diagnosis enables patients to seek timely treatment, leading to improved outcomes and increased chances of recovery. As awareness around these issues continues to grow, more patients are likely to seek brain implant treatments as a viable option for managing their conditions, leading to further growth of the market. Furthermore, increase in promotional activities by manufacturers and government organizations for availability of advanced brain implant devices among the general population are expected to fuel their adoption in the near future. 

However, stringent government regulations on manufacturing of medical devices for maintaining the quality and safety of the device delays the product approvals thereby restraining the market growth. In addition, different governments often adopt varying regulations, which can further complicate the clearance process for manufacturers seeking to market their products internationally. Furthermore, the high cost of brain implant devices can also pose a challenge to the growth of the brain implant market. 

The outbreak of COVID-19 has disrupted workflows in the health care sector around the world. The disease has forced a number of industries to shut their doors temporarily, including several sub-domains of health care. The global brain implant devices market experienced a decline in 2020 due to global economic recession led by COVID-19. In addition, the COVID-19 outbreak disrupted the supply chain across various end-user industries like healthcare and manufacturers.

However, the market is anticipated to witness recovery and show stable growth for brain implant market in the coming future. This is attributed to the increase in adoption of advanced brain implant and augmentation in demand for advanced manufacturing systems. In addition, article published by National Library of Medicine (NIH) 2023, stated that, post-COVID prevalence of neuropathic pain is estimated to be 24.4% in patients affected with COVID 19. Thus, prevalence of chronic conditions and rise in regular check-ups to manage neurological symptoms are expected to have significant impact on adoption of various types of brain implant devices in upcoming years.
