Market Opportunity – Growing Demand for Minimally Invasive Surgeries

Growing demand for minimally invasive surgeries can offer opportunities for the global nerve monitoring system market growth. There has been a continual shift towards minimally invasive options across different medical specialties over the past decade due to advantages like reduced post-operative pain, shorter hospital stays, and quicker recovery times for patients. Minimally invasive surgeries are common in many areas like bariatric, hernia repair, and certain orthopedic procedures. However, in complex surgeries that require meticulous handling or dissection of nerves like spine, brain, ENT, or vascular procedures, surgeons are constantly looking for newer techniques and tools to perform such interventions with smaller incisions while ensuring safety.

Insights, By Product: Technology advancements drives the nerve monitor segment growth

Product segment is sub-segmented into nerve monitor, electrodes, probes, and accessories. Nerve monitor sub-segment is estimated to hold 48.3% of the market share in 2024 due to continual technological enhancements. Nerve monitors have evolved tremendously over the past decade due to significant R&D investments by key players. Earlier models were largely dependent on electromyography for nerve monitoring which provided limited nerve specificity. However, recent nerve monitors integrate multiple modalities like EEG, EMG and EP for comprehensive intraoperative nerve surveillance. Advanced sensors and integrated software solutions in new monitors provide surgeons with real-time feedback on nerve integrity and function. This helps to reduce preventable nerve injuries during complex surgeries and minimizes litigation risks. Leading companies like Medtronic, Natus and NuVasive have developed proprietary integrated stimulation technologies in their newest nerve monitors. For instance, the NIM Neuro 2.0 from Medtronic features SelectSite stimulation technology that allows surgeons to selectively test individual nerve sites with precise stimulation. This enhances location accuracy and leads to better clinical outcomes. 

Insights, By Technology: Growing neurosurgeries & orthopedic procedures boost demand for EEG

Technology segment is sub-segmented into electroencephalogram (EEG), electromyography (EMG), electrocorticography (ECOG), and evoked potential (EP). Electroencephalogram (EEG) sub-segment is estimated to hold 39.1% of the market share in 2024 due to rising volumes of high-risk neuro and orthopedic procedures. EEG monitors nerve responses by using scalp or subdermal electrodes and remains the gold standard for neuraxial surgeries involving the spine or brain. As geriatric population suffering from degenerative neurological diseases increases, the number of complex spinal surgeries also rises worldwide. Since accurate intraoperative nerve mapping and monitoring is critical in such surgeries to prevent nerve injuries, demand for EEG nerve monitors increases among hospitals and surgery centers. 

Insights, By End User: Expanding hospital infrastructure & reimbursements boost adoption

End User segment is sub-segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, others. Hospitals sub-segment is estimated to hold 54.1% of the market share in 2024, due to growing infrastructure in private and public hospitals along with favorable reimbursement policies for nerve monitoring procedures. Government initiatives in developing countries are increasingly focusing on strengthening hospital infrastructure and equipping them with modern operation theaters. This boosts adoption of nerve monitoring systems. Moreover, private hospitals are making large capital investments to develop centers-of-excellence in orthopedics, neurosurgery, and bariatric surgeries.

Regional Insights

Nerve Monitoring System Market Regional Insights

To learn more about this report, request a free sample copy

North America remains the dominant region in the global nerve monitoring system market is estimated to hold 39.4% of the market share in 2024. This growth can be attributed to factors like strong healthcare infrastructure, rising neurological disorders, growing medical technology adoption and favorable reimbursement policies in countries like the U.S. The region is also home to some key players who are continuously investing in developing advanced nerve monitoring products. Moreover, good access to capital for research and development activities has enabled North American companies to innovate quickly and retain their technological edge. With a widespread distribution network and presence, these firms are able to effectively cater to the demand across the region.

Asia Pacific is emerging as the fastest growing regional market for nerve monitoring system. Countries like China, India and Japan are witnessing rising neurological conditions in tandem with their growing geriatric population. This has considerably boosted demand for nerve monitoring interventions in the Asia Pacific region. Furthermore, improving healthcare expenditures, increasing focus on expanding medical infrastructure and developing expertise boosts adoption. Local players are also entering the segment to address the need of vast patient pools. Governments are offering subsidies and support for importing high-end medical technologies. This is attracting global companies to strengthen their distribution and manufacturing bases in Asia Pacific markets. The region also stands to gain from strong export opportunities due to comparatively lower production costs. Suppliers find it favorable to tap into Asia Pacific's expanding market through imports.
