Neurology is a branch of medical science that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of central nerves system (CNS), autonomic nerves system (ANS), and peripheral nervous system (PNS) through medications and neurostimulation devices. A neurostimulation device delivers mild electronic signals to the nervous system, which develop tingling sensations (paresthesia) in the damaged nerve and helps in the treatment of chronic pain and neurological disorders.
The increasing prevalence of chronic pain and rising incidences of neurological diseases are some major drivers of the global neurostimulation devices market. Moreover, rising awareness about various neurological diseases, growing geriatric population, and increasing investments in research and development of innovative neurostimulation devices are also supporting the growth of this market. However, availability of alternative treatment therapies for neurological diseases and side-effects of neurostimulation therapy are some of the major restraints for the global neurostimulation devices market.
In terms of geography, North America dominates the neurostimulation devices market owing to increasing prevalence of various neurological diseases and various initiatives taken by private and government organizations to raise awareness about chronic pain and neurological disorders in the region. Furthermore, technological advancements in neurostimulation devices are also supporting the growth of the neurostimulation devices market in the region. In Europe, the neurostimulation devices market is growing due to initiatives taken by various government organizations to improve healthcare services in the region. In addition, increasing the prevalence of chronic pain and neurological disorders and growing aging population are also supporting the growth of this market in the region.
Asia Pacific represents the fastest-growing neurostimulation devices market due to growing incidence of chronic pain due to conditions such as osteoporosis and arthritis, in various countries such as China and Japan.
This report provides in-depth analysis and estimation of the neurostimulation devices market for the period 2014 – 2020, considering 2014 as the base year for the calculation.
