The global intracranial aneurysm market size was valued at USD 1.50 billion in 2023. The market is projected to grow from USD 1.61 billion in 2024 to USD 2.95 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period.

An intracranial aneurysm or cerebral aneurysm is a balloon-like growth of blood vessels caused by the weakening of blood vessel walls. Leaks or ruptures of these aneurysms cause life-threatening bleeding. Treatment for these aneurysms includes medication to control high blood pressure and procedures to prevent a future rupture. Treatment includes microsurgical clipping and flow diversion with stents and endovascular coiling. The increasing awareness about these procedures among the patient population drives the demand for cerebral aneurysm treatment. This demand is further surging due to the rising number of patients suffering from cerebrovascular diseases. To address this growing demand, market players are actively investing in their research and development activities to introduce novel products that are likely to support the treatment of this disease.

  • According to the 2023 Fact Sheet of the Brain Aneurysm Foundation, an estimated 6.7 million people in the U.S. have an unruptured brain aneurysm, which is 1 in 50 people.

Moreover, public and private entities are focusing on enhancing funding for aneurysm research to increase screening, diagnosis, and medical assistance toward brain aneurysm treatment. These active research studies offer the prospective launch of new devices anticipated to broaden the range of products used for treating cerebrovascular diseases, subsequently driving the global intracranial aneurysm market growth.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the market’s growth was negatively impacted due to a decline in the volume of intracranial aneurysm procedures. This disrupted the supply and demand of medical devices required for intracranial aneurysm procedures.

Intracranial Aneurysm Market Trends

Growing Preference Toward Minimal Invasive Procedure Led to Technological Advancement

Surgery has always been an option for certain types of intracranial cerebral aneurysms. However, in recent years, minimally invasive procedures have greatly reduced physical trauma and recovery time. Earlier, craniotomy was the primary treatment option in which a small metal clip is placed across the base of the aneurysm bulge that cuts off blood flow to the ballooned blood vessel. However, modern advances have made this major procedure less common.

Recently, the patient population prefers minimal invasive procedures, such as coiling and stenting. They divert the blood flow away from the aneurysm, making it less likely to rupture, and they are performed without opening the skull.

  • According to a study published by Stroke: Vascular and Interventional Neurology in December 2022, flow diversion has revolutionized the treatment of intracranial aneurysms, although it has decreased the coil and stent usage rate. Flow diverters have demonstrated a safe and effective profile, and their use has gradually expanded from giant wide‐necked aneurysms to small and medium‐sized lesions and even for aneurysms located on small vessels.

The positive outcomes demonstrated by these novel devices are influencing patient preference toward minimally invasive procedures. Moreover, the surge in demand for these devices is encouraging market players to introduce more technologically advanced products in the market.

Intracranial Aneurysm Market Growth Factors

Increasing Prevalence of Cerebral Aneurysm is Likely to Augment Market Growth

One of the vital factors driving the demand for intracranial aneurysm devices is the rising prevalence rate of cerebral aneurysms globally. Technological advancements in imaging techniques, such as 3-D angiography and magnetic resonance angiography, contribute to the timely diagnosis of aneurysms. This is anticipated to drive the diagnosis rate and increase the patient population seeking viable treatment options. Moreover, the positive outcomes demonstrated by devices, such as coils, flow diverters, and intravascular devices or WEB devices used in minimally invasive procedures, are expected to drive market growth.

  • As per an article published by Scientific Reports in September 2023, the prevalence of asymptomatic unruptured cerebral aneurysms in the Japanese adult population ranges from 2 to 6%, with a rupture rate of 0.95% per year in Japan. The risk of rupture in Japanese individuals is 2.8 times higher than in Westerners, and it emphasizes the importance of early detection through brain screening in Japan.

Strong Emphasis on Brain Aneurysm Research is Likely to Drive Market Growth

Another factor contributing to the market growth is the growing support of public and private organizations toward brain aneurysm research. Government entities are supporting aneurysm-related studies by approving research grants and sanctioning funds. On the other hand, market players are actively conducting clinical studies to check the clinical outcomes of devices likely to be used to treat aneurysms. These initiatives are anticipated to offer a lucrative opportunity for the prospective launch of medical devices and are likely to propel the demand owing to positive clinical outcomes.

  • In May 2023, researchers at the University of Cincinnati, Department of Neurosurgery received USD 30,000 from the Brain Aneurysm Foundation to uncover a more accurate way to predict whether an aneurysm will rupture.

  • In July 2023, MicroVention, Inc., a subsidiary of Terumo Corporation, published WEB-IT 5-year follow-up data and the addition of two sizes to its WEB Aneurysm Embolization System. With this five-year clinical trial data, WEB is the most well-studied intrasaccular device available in the market, with seven Good Clinical Practice (GCP) studies and over 200 peer-reviewed publications.

As a result, the market players increased their emphasis on developing and introducing novel products that are anticipated to be used in treating intracranial aneurysms. This is expected to escalate the demand and adoption in the market over the study period.


Misdiagnosis and Associated Cost May Restrict Market Growth

Even though brain imaging is now widely available to diagnose a ruptured aneurysm, patients often get misdiagnosed or are delayed in diagnosis when they first seek care. In addition, the cost of treating a ruptured aneurysm is much higher than an unruptured one.

  • According to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation 2023 Data, surgical clipping aneurysms more than double the cost after rupturing. Endovascular coiled aneurysms increase in cost by approximately 70% after rupturing.

  • Moreover, there is a lack of established clinical guidelines for early and efficient neurovascular disease diagnosis in emerging countries. The rate of misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis is higher in developing countries due to limited awareness and access to well-established healthcare infrastructure. These are some of the factors that may limit the adoption or penetration rate of these solutions, subsequently limiting the market’s growth.

Intracranial Aneurysm Market Segmentation Analysis

By Product Type Analysis

Aneurysm Therapeutic Devices Segment Dominated the Market Due to Higher Adoption

By product type, the market is segmented into aneurysm therapeutic devices, embolization devices, aspiration devices, and access devices.

The aneurysm therapeutic devices segment dominated the global intracranial aneurysm market share in 2023. It further includes clips, coils, intravascular devices, and flow diverters. Most of these devices are used in minimally invasive procedures performed for treating brain aneurysms, and the positive clinical outcomes demonstrated by these devices have led to their higher adoption. Therefore, this drives the demand for these medical devices and subsequently augments the segment’s growth.
