The Global Intracranial Stents Market, by Product Type (Self-Expanding Intracranial Stents and Embolization Coil Support Intracranial Stents), by Disease Indication (Brain Aneurysm and Intracranial Stenosis), by End User (Hospitals and Ambulatory Surgical Centers) was valued at US$ 313.5 million in 2017, and is projected to exhibit a CAGR of 15.6% over the forecast period (2018 - 2026). 

Increasing number of neurological disorders and traumatic accidents is propelling demand for introduction of technically advanced intracranial stents to treat intracranial atherosclerosis or brain aneurysm, which in turn is directly contributing to growth of the intracranial stent market. For instance, according to the United Nations data of 2011, around 1 billion people, i.e., 1 in every 6 of the world’s population suffered from neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Alzheimer’s, strokes, multiple sclerosis, and migraines. Furthermore, According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2014, around 2.5 million cases of traumatic accidents are registered in U.S. that lead to brain infection, meningitis, and aneurysm, which in turn is propelling the intracranial stents market growth. However, the intracranial stents market appears to be highly concentrated due to the presence of few vendors in the market. Moreover, the product is facing less acceptance among surgeons due to the risks of complications regarding the stent movement and bleeding in the brain after surgery. Furthermore, stringent government regulations regarding the use of intracranial stents to a specific age group of patients and severity of the condition of the patient, delays the entry of product in this market.
