Rising Incidence of Neurovascular Conditions to Surge the Demand for Neurovascular Devices

The increasing prevalence of neurovascular conditions such as stroke, cerebral aneurysms, and others is one of the significant factors contributing to the rising patient population globally. The prevalence of these neurovascular conditions is higher in the geriatric population.

  • According to data published by American Heart Association, intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) stroke is the most common type of stroke, accounting for 10%-15% of the estimated 795,000 strokes each year in the U.S. Whereas, around 18.9 million people around the world had an intracerebral hemorrhage in 2020.

  • According to the 2020 report by the U.S. Census Bureau, geriatric population increased from 39.6 million in 2009 to 54.1 million in 2019. The number is estimated to reach 94.7 million in 2060.

This has been pivotal in increasing the demand for neurovascular devices such as aspiration and thrombectomy devices for interventional procedures. Furthermore, this has been facilitated by the reimbursement policies being laid down in various countries, which has fueled the preference toward these procedures, thereby driving the growth of the global market.

Increasing Government Initiatives to Create Awareness of Neurovascular Diseases to Fuel Market Augmentation

Neurological disorders requiring interventional treatment are among the conditions that do not show physical symptoms in the early stages. This has been a significant reason for the critical nature of these conditions. This has generated a need to establish a well-developed plan for efficient and timely diagnosis of these conditions.

Various global & national agencies and public & non-profit organizations have been actively focusing on establishing such plans to effectively and timely manage neurological conditions that require intervention.

  • For instance, in May 2021, a declaration for the Stroke Action Plan was signed by the Ukrainian MoH for Europe to fight against stroke. This action was supported by the European Stroke Organization (ESO).

  • Additionally, in 2019, the national plan for stroke was launched by the Ukraine’s Ministry of Health (MoH) to implement changes, ensure investments, and achieve technical excellence.

Such initiatives undertaken by hospitals, healthcare systems, associations/societies, and government health departments to improve diagnosis are projected to present a large patient pool undergoing treatment. This combined with developing healthcare infrastructure in emerging countries and introducing technologically advanced products for neurovascular interventional procedures is anticipated to surge the demand and adoption of these devices.


Misdiagnosis or Delayed Diagnosis of Brain Aneurysms to Limit Device Demand

Several government and private agencies are striving to establish clinical plans and guidelines and implement various initiatives to promote early and efficient diagnosis of patients suffering from neurological disorders.

However, despite the efforts of these organizations, there are many cases of delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of brain aneurysms due to the failure to conduct brain imaging scans, lack of expertise among the physicians and errors, especially in emergency departments.

  • For instance, according to data published by the Brain Aneurysm Foundation in 2022, in the U.S., almost one of every four patients with brain aneurysms is misdiagnosed or receives a delayed diagnosis.

Moreover, the rate of delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis is considerably higher in developing countries such as India and China. The delay in these countries is mainly attributed to the factors such as limited awareness among the general population toward neurological disorders, limited access to well-developed healthcare infrastructure, and lack of established guidelines and plan of action by governing bodies.

Such factors are expected to limit the market growth during the forecast period.
