Brain health devices are used in the treatment of neurological disorders such as Alzheimer disease and other dementias, epilepsy, cerebrovascular diseases, including stroke, migraine, and other headache disorders, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, neuroinfections, brain tumors, traumatic disorders of the nervous system due to head trauma and neurological disorders as a result of malnutrition. Neurological disorders may also occur due to various infections such as viral infection (Zika virus), bacterial infection (Neisseria meningitides), and fungal infection (Cryptococcus). According to the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2016, around 450 millions of people were affected by neurological disorders across the world. Around 50 million people were reported to be suffering from epilepsy across the globe and over 6 million people die due to stroke each year. Brain health devices such as CT scan, MRI, EEG, MEG, Transcranial Doppler (TCD) devices are commonly used to monitor brain activity.

Rising prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease is expected to boost market growth

The major factor contributing to growth of the brain health devices market is the rising number of Alzheimer’s cases. For instance, According to the Alzheimer’s Association, in 2017, over 5 million people are estimated to be suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, which is also reported to be the sixth-leading cause of death in the U.S. Furthermore, growing geriatric population, rising number of traumatic brain injury cases, and rampant advancements in technology such as brain biomarkers, gene therapy, stem cell therapy and smart brain prosthetics are contributing to growth of the brain health devices market. Furthermore, diagnosis and treatment neurodegenerative diseases through the microbiome and neuroimaging techniques further augments market growth. However, high costs of these devices are responsible for hindering market growth.
