Rising prevalence of strokes

The increasing risk of strokes globally has become a serious public health issue. Strokes are among the leading causes of disability and mortality across many developed and developing nations. The risk of strokes grows steadily with age, with the majority of stroke cases occurring among individuals over 65 years of age. With prolonged lifespans and aging populations worldwide, the number of elderly persons is projected to grow sharply in the coming decades. This will correspondingly drive up the burden of age-related health conditions like strokes. Lifestyle changes across large sections of the world's population have also inadvertently increased stroke risks over time. Unhealthy diets high in fat, sugar and sodium are widespread. Physical inactivity due to more sedentary jobs and urbanization have become commonplace. Additionally, conditions like obesity, diabetes, and hypertension which are known risk multipliers for strokes have seen rising prevalence globally. All of these factors contribute to a growing strike susceptibility at the population level.

Growing acceptance of telemedicine solutions

Telestroke services are benefiting from the increasing comfort and familiarity of patients and physicians with various telemedicine modalities. What started as an experiment during the pandemic is fast becoming the new normal worldwide. Telehealth solutions are now being adopted across a broad spectrum of specialties from dermatology to cardiology. Stakeholders have recognized their ability to improve access to expertise, reduce travel costs and time, ensure continuity of care and aid early triage and treatment. With each successful implementation, doubts regarding reliability, and efficacy of virtual care diminish. New technologies centered on artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and remote monitoring are further fueling innovation and integration of digital health applications.

Insights, By Stroke Type: Treatment Advancements Drive the Ischemic Stroke Segment Growth

The stroke type segment includes ischemic stroke, hemorrhagic stroke, and transient ischemic attack. Ischemic stroke segment is anticipated to hold 68.9% of the market share in 2024. Ischemic strokes are caused by a blockage that stops blood flow to the brain, such as a blood clot. Being the most common type of stroke globally, accounting for nearly 87% of all strokes, the ischemic stroke segment has received extensive focus from healthcare providers and researchers. Major drivers for the ischemic stroke segment include the rising availability of thrombolytic drugs that can dissolve blood clots and restore blood flow. Notable among these are tissue plasminogen activators (tPA) that have proven effective if administered within three to four hours of the onset of symptoms. As thrombolytics become more widely adopted in clinical practice, including in telestroke networks, they are expanding access to time-critical treatment for ischemic strokes. Another factor fueling the segment is the emergence of advanced interventional procedures like mechanical thrombectomy that uses stent retrievers and suction devices to remove large clots. Such minimally invasive techniques have significantly improved recovery outcomes when performed within six hours of symptom onset.

Insights, By Platform Deployment: Cloud-based Platforms Drive Efficiency and Access

The platform deployment segment includes cloud and on premise. Cloud segment is anticipated to contribute the highest share of the telestroke services market and is projected to hold 84.8% of the market share in 2024. Healthcare organizations are increasingly recognizing telestroke networks as a cost-effective means to expand specialty access in underserved communities. Cloud-based telestroke platforms allow hospitals to avoid large upfront infrastructure investments and focus budgets on direct patient services. They also offer scalable solutions that grow along with provider networks and patient volumes without limiting hardware or bandwidth resources. By providing a secure environment for video consultations, treatment guidance and data exchanges, cloud services are helping drive operational efficiency. For healthcare providers, the flexibility and ubiquity of cloud-based telestroke networks promote collaborative stroke management between primary, emergency, and consulting specialists separated by distance. They facilitate real-time coordination of evaluation, treatment, and transfers seamlessly across organizational and geographical boundaries. This ability to deliver equitable, integrated care has gained significance during the recent pandemic challenges.

Insights, By Application: Hospitals Lead EMR Adoption due to Heavy Patient Volumes and Need for Coordinated Care

The application segment includes counseling, treatment, emergency service, and others. Emergency service contributes the highest share of the telestroke services market and is projected to hold 40.6% of the market share in 2024. With every minute that passes without reperfusion treatment, nearly 2 million neurons are lost and the risk of permanent disability rises exponentially. Every second therefore counts once stroke symptoms appear, making telestroke networks an imperative for managing these medical emergencies in isolated communities. One of the most important uses of telestroke technology is enabling rapid neurological assessments by on-call specialists via telemedicine. They support local physicians in identifying stroke subtypes, making treatment decisions including administration of thrombolytics, and deciding on appropriate patient transfers if interventional care is required. Given the time-sensitive nature, most telestroke consultations are initiated from emergency departments or medical imaging suites. Additionally, virtual neurological consults streamline the evaluation and management of transient ischemic attack (TIA), or mini-stroke, cases presenting to emergency rooms.
