Rising number of neurological disorders such ischemic stroke, Alzheimer's disease, essential tremors, trauma and especially Parkinsonism are primary factors responsible for the growth of deep brain stimulation devices market. Parkinson's disease is the second most common chronic and progressive neurodegenerative disorder characterized by postural instability, bradykinesia, akinesia and tremors due to loss of dopamine producing neurons in substantia nigra of mid-brain.
In addition, rise in geriatric population along with augmented demand for minimally invasive surgical techniques have boosted the overall growth of this market. Moreover, increase in preference of patients and healthcare professionals to adopt surgical DBS devices over drug therapy owing to its significant side effects and lack of effectiveness is further expected to drive the market in coming years.
According to the Parkinson's DiseaseFoundation (PDF), it has been estimated that approximately 10 million people worldwide and one million Americans are living with Parkinson's disease. Among these, in U.S. approximately 60,000 people are diagnosed with Parkinson's disease each year. There are different treatment options available for Parkinson's disease that include drug therapy, surgical therapy, physical therapy and stem cell therapy. However, DBS surgical therapy is mostly preferred in advanced stages of the disease while in early stages chemotherapy is used.
