The intracranial pressure monitoring market is poised to grow at a CAGR of 6.41% by 2027.

The COVID - 19 pandemic is expected to have a short-term negative impact on the intracranial pressure monitoring market owing to supply chain disruption, trade ban in several countries, and a decrease in diagnostic rates of neurological disorders. Companies are conducting studies to evaluate the effect of COVID-19 on the intracranial pressure of the patient. For instance, in April 2021, the Federal University of São Paulo, in collaboration with Sens4care, started an observational study to measure the effect of intracranial pressure in COVID-19 individuals. Additionally, the study "Isolated intracranial hypertension associated with COVID-19" published in November 2020, demonstrated that in COVID-19 patients headache was associated to intracranial hypertension in the absence of meningitic or encephalitic features. Thus, Covid-19 has significantly impacted the market.

Increased intracranial pressure is a rise in the pressure inside the skull that can result from or cause brain injury. Intracranial Pressure monitoring systems and devices help in monitoring the pressure, as increase in intracranial pressure can be serious and life-threatening medical problem. The pressure can damage the brain or spinal cord by pressing on important structures and by restricting blood flow into the brain. Increasing cases of head injury and increasing prevalence of neurodegenerative disorders have been key factors that have helped this market grow. According to a study published by the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society in 2020, "Estimation of the 2020 Global Population of Parkinson's Disease (PD)", an estimated 9.4 million people were living with Parkinson's disease in 2020, higher than the previously reported 6 million cases in 2016.

Additionally, as per a study titled, "Prevalence of Alzheimer's Disease and Parkinson's Disease in China: An Updated Systematical Analysis," published in December 2020, the prevalence rate for Alzheimer's in the Chinese population aged 60 years and more was found to be around 3.20%. Moreover, increasing awareness regarding head injuries and technological advancements have also propelled the growth of this market.

However, lack of trained professionals for equipment operation and handling and high procedural cost involving intracranial pressure devices have been restraining the market growth.

Key Market Trends

Application of Intracranial Pressure Monitoring in Traumatic Brain Injury is expected to increase in the forecast period

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is an injury to the brain caused by a blow or jolt to the head from blunt or penetrating trauma. An object that goes through brain tissue, such as a bullet or shattered piece of skull, also can cause traumatic brain injury. More serious traumatic brain injury can result in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding, and other physical damage to the brain. Mild traumatic brain injury may affect your brain cells temporarily. These injuries can result in long-term complications or death. It can have wide-ranging physical and psychological effects. Some signs or symptoms may appear immediately after the traumatic event, while others may appear days or weeks later.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2021, there were about 61,000 traumatic brain injury deaths in the United States in 2019. Road accidents are one of the major causes of traumatic brain injury globally. According to the World Health Organization, in 2021, approximately 1.3 million people die each year due to road traffic crashes, and about 20 to 50 million more people suffer non-fatal injuries worldwide.

The most common reason for the onset of intracranial pressure is that traumatic brain injuries occur due to vehicle-related collisions, violence, sports injuries, explosive blasts, and other combat injuries. Additionally, the launch of new products is expected to drive the segment growth. For instance, in November 2019, Raumedic launched an intracranial pressure monitoring device for home use.

Also, motor vehicle crashes are the most common cause of traumatic brain injury (TBI)-related emergency room visits, hospitalizations and deaths. Hence, as the number of patients with traumatic brain injuries increase, the demand for intracranial pressure monitoring is expected to increase.

North America is expected to dominate the market

North American countries like the United States (US) and Canada have a developed and well-structured health care system. These systems also encourage research and development. These policies encourage global players to enter the US and Canada. As a result, these countries enjoy presence of many global market players.

The major factors contributing to market growth in this region are the increasing cases of head and brain injury, the increasing prevalence of neurodegenerative disorders, and the growing elderly population. According to the Alzheimer's Association, number of Americans living with Alzheimer's is growing rapidly. According to the data from alzheimers.org in 2021, in the United States, an estimated 6.2 million Americans aged 65 and older were living with Alzheimer’s related dementia in 2021. The data also pointed out that more than 1 in 9 people (11.3%) age 65 and older has Alzheimer’s dementia in 2020.

According to the Parkinson's Foundation, there are nearly one million people found living with Parkinson's disease (PD) in the United States in 2020. There are also approximately 60,000 Americans are diagnosed with PD each year. The incidence of Parkinson’s disease thus increases with age, but an estimated four percent of people with PD are diagnosed before age 50.

Road accidents are one of the major causes of traumatic brain injury, which increases the demand for intracranial pressure monitoring in the country. Hence, as high and increasing demand it met by the presence of global players in the US, the market is further expected to increase.

Competitive Landscape

Majority of the Intracranial Pressure Monitoring systems and devices are being manufactured by the global key players. Market leaders with more funds for research and better distribution system have established their position in the market. Moreover, Asia-pacific is witnessing an emergence of some small players due to the rise of awareness. This has also helped the market grow.
