Most neurosurgery procedures need rigid fixation of the head for successful operation. Skull clamps are indicated for such use in case of percutaneous craniotomies and spinal surgeries. They are placed on patient’s skull to hold their neck and head in proper posture during surgeries. Increasing number of neurosurgeries and development of new surgical techniques have led to demand for miniaturized instruments such as skull clamps to reduce post-surgical scars on body.

Skull Clamp Market – Drivers

Advancements in skull clamp technologies is expected to boost growth of the market. For instance, in October 2017, Mizuho OSI, a leading manufacturer of surgical equipment in the U.S., launched a new technology called Levo Head Positioning System at North American Spine Society (NASS), which will provide accurate head positioning during spine surgeries. It has various interchangeable modules, which supports efficient attachment to skull clamps providing safe and efficient patient care.

Skull Clamp Market – Restraint

Incidences of  injuries during usage of skull clamps is hampering the growth of skull clamp market. For instance, according to an article published in The Journal of the American Medical Association, (JAMA) 2016, skull clamp systems used in surgical procedures to immobilize the head and neck movement sometimes move or slip, leading to injuries such as skull fractures, facial cuts, and blood clots. This is hampering growth of the skull clamp market.

Skull Clamp Market – Regional Analysis

On the basis of region, the global skull clamp market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.

North America is expected to hold dominant position in the skull clamp market, owing to increasing geriatric populations and increasing cases of brain injuries. For instance, according to a report published in The Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) 2017, in the U.S., 153 people die due to traumatic brain injuries every day. 

Asia Pacific is also expected to witness significant growth in the skull clamp market due to continuous foreign investments and less cost of spinal surgeries. For instance, according to data released by India Brand Equity Foundation on September 2018, healthcare has become one of India’s largest sectors both in terms of revenue and employment, and the cost of surgery in India is about one-tenth of that in the U.S. or Western Europe. Moreover, according to data released by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) 2018, the healthcare sector of India attracted Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) worth US$ 5.25 billion between April 2000 and June 2018.

Key players operating in the global skull clamp market include Allen Medical Systems, Inc., Barrfab, Eschmann Equipment, Medifa - Hesse GmbH & Co. KG, Schaerer Medical, TECHNOMED INDIA., OPT SURGISYSTEMS S.R.L., Micromar Ind. e Com. LTDA, pro med instruments, Inc., and Herbert.
