Report Description

Brain Monitoring Market was valued at US$ 6 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Brain monitoring devices are used to monitor and diagnose neurological conditions by exploring the structure and function of the brain. This process involves the use of several brain monitoring devices such as electroencephalography devices, intracranial pressure monitors, and magnetoencephalography to track brain functions. In addition, these devices help monitor neural and electrical activity in the brain. At present, there is an increase in the demand for electroencephalography devices among healthcare providers.

The presence of high incidence rates of diseases leading to brain disorders such as epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, brain tumors, and multiple sclerosis will also serve this market as high impact rendering drivers. According to the estimates of the WHO in 2011 the global prevalence of epilepsy and multiple sclerosis was calculated at 50 million and 2.5 million respectively. This alarming statistic goes to show the dire need for brain monitoring devices in the global healthcare industry today. The market offers a wide range of devices to treat the abnormal brain activities and restore its functioning, depending on the case.


Rate of Death with Epilepsy As The Underlying Cause in the U.S. from 2015 to 2019 (Per 100,000 Population)

This statistic shows the rate of death in the U.S. with epilepsy as the underlying cause from 2015 to 2019. In 2019, the death rate for epilepsy was 0.5 per 100,000 population, a slight increase from a rate of 0.4 in the year 2015.

Epilepsy is a general term used to describe a group of related neurological disorders characterized by recurrent seizures. Seizures among epileptics can vary in frequency and seriousness and can last a few seconds or a few minutes. Some of the most common seizure triggers among epileptics include bright flashing lights, stress, lack of sleep, illness or fever, and alcohol, caffeine, and other drugs. In most cases, the cause of epilepsy is unknown, but the disorder can result from stroke, brain injury, brain tumors, and serious illness or very high fever. Approximately 1.1 percent of the population of the U.S. currently lives with epilepsy, with the disorder occurring equally among men and women.

Natus Medical, Inc., Nihon Kohden Corporation, Philips Healthcare, GE Healthcare, Siemens Healthineers, Compumedics, Ltd., Medtronic, CAS Medical Systems, Drägerwerk AG & Co. KGaA and Masimo Corporation are some of the prominent players operating in the global brain monitoring market. Several M&A’s along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to develop new and advanced products.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst product, devices segment holds the major share”

Based on product, the Brain Monitoring market is segmented into devices and accessories. The devices segment held the largest share of the brain monitoring market in 2019. This is mainly due to the rising incidence of neurological, neurodegenerative, psychotic, and sleep disorders, the need for early diagnosis, the availability of innovative portable and wearable home-based monitoring devices, and increasing patient awareness.

“Amongst disease, the traumatic brain injury (TBI) segment holds the major share”

Based on disease, the brain monitoring market is segmented into traumatic brain injury (TBI), stroke, dementia, headache disorders, sleep disorders, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, Huntington’s disease, and other diseases. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) holds the largest share of the brain monitoring market by a medical condition. A major factor responsible for the large share of this market segment is the growing incidence of TBIs across the globe, leading to high demand for the management of these cases, thus requiring the intensive use of brain monitoring devices.

Amongst procedure, the non-invasive segment is projected to show fastest growth”

Depending on procedure, the market is categorized into invasive and non-invasive. The non-invasive segment is projected to show fastest growth during the forecast period, due to rise in incidences of traumatic brain injuries, high acceptance rate of minimally invasive devices, and low risk of mortality. This increases the demand for these products that propels the market growth.

“Amongst end-user, the hospitals segment holds the major share”

Based on end-users, the global brain monitoring devices market is segmented into hospitals, neurology centers, diagnostic centers, ASCs & clinics, and other end users. The hospital segment held the largest share of the global brain monitoring market in 2019. Brain monitoring is a complex process, requiring expensive and advanced devices and equipment that are mainly found in hospitals. Hospitals also see a considerably larger inflow of patients as compared to small clinics and other end users. Additionally, brain monitoring devices pose a considerable burden in terms of maintenance expenses on healthcare facilities; hospitals, more than other end-users, can bear such costs. Hence, brain monitoring devices are mostly used in hospitals, which consequently account for the largest share of this market segment.

“North America signifies one of the largest markets of Brain Monitoring market”

For a better understanding of the market dynamics of the Brain Monitoring market, a detailed analysis was conducted for different regions across the globe including North America (United States, Canada, and the Rest of North America), Europe (Germany, France, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom and Rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, India, South Korea, and Rest of APAC), Rest of World has been conducted. North America is expected to dominate the Brain Monitoring market due to growing incidence of neurological diseases, a growing number of clinical trials of brain monitoring products, and the availability of medical reimbursement in the US. However, Asia-Pacific is expected to experience the highest growth rate during the forecast period, due to increase in number of geriatric population and rise in purchasing power of countries in the region.
