The global intraoperative neuromonitoring market size is projected to reach $5.4 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. Factors driving the growth of the market are the rising geriatric population, increasing prevalence of chronic disorders, applications of intraoperative neuromonitoring in various surgeries, and risk management through intraoperative neuromonitoring during complex surgeries.
GLOBAL INTRAOPERATIVE NEUROMONITORING MARKET, BY PRODUCT & SERVICES, $M (2014-2022)
In terms of product and services, the intraoperative neuromonitoring market is segmented into systems, services and accessories. The systems segment occupied the largest share in the market in 2016 and it is projected to hold a market share of more than 35% by 2023. The services segment is projected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period and is expected to hold the largest market share by 2023.
Geographically, North America accounted for the largest share of 43.9% in the global intraoperative neuromonitoring market in 2016. The North American market is expected to continue to lead the global market throughout the forecast period. This is primarily due to the rising prevalence of neurological disorders, high adoption rate of intraoperative neuromonitoring, presence of highly sophisticated healthcare infrastructure, favorable reimbursement framework for intraoperative neuromonitoring services, and increased patient awareness about intraoperative neuromonitoring. Further, the North American intraoperative neuromonitoring market is driven by the presence of a large number of hospitals and increasing number of surgeries in the region.
Intraoperative Neuromonitoring Market Dynamics
Spinal intraoperative neuromonitoring is an important procedure that helps in risk management during complex surgical procedures. The use of intraoperative neuromonitoring during a surgical procedure helps in the reduction of risks of impairment to neurophysiological relevant nerve structures or possible impairment of nerve function because of improper positioning of the patient. With the help of several intraoperative neuromonitoring modalities, nerve structures can be identified, and potential impairment can be prevented. Thus, intraoperative neuromonitoring is an important technology that enables surgeons to focus on optimizing the intervention without causing any harm to the neural structures. Therefore, potential risk management is expected to drive the growth of the intraoperative neuromonitoring market.
Increasing medical tourism is a major opportunity for the intraoperative neuromonitoring products and service providers as spine surgery is one of the fastest growing specialties in medical tourism. Use of intraoperative neuromonitoring through medical tourism would lead to improvement of surgical outcomes across the globe. Medical tourism patients often act as both the consumer and decision-maker regarding their choices of care. Thus, the demand for intraoperative neuromonitoring market in medical tourism patients could increase the use of intraoperative neuromonitoring devices in hospitals. In addition, medical tourism would increase awareness regarding the importance and implementation of intraoperative neuromonitoring during surgeries.
Intraoperative neuromonitoring is widely used in developed regions of the world. However, the usage rate of intraoperative neuromonitoring during surgery is very low in developing countries. Neuromonitoring is unheard of in developing and poor nations, and even in developed countries, only handful of them has these tools available to physicians. In countries, such as India, China, and Brazil, very few medical specialties are equipped with intraoperative neuromonitoring devices. This is mainly due to low awareness and dearth of advanced healthcare facilities in developing regions of Asia-Pacific and LAMEA. Thus, the low awareness of intraoperative neuromonitoring is set to act as a barrier to the intraoperative neuromonitoring market growth in emerging nations.
