The global neurothrombectomy devices market size was USD 493.4 million in 2020 and is projected to grow from USD 562.2 million in 2021 to USD 1,090.7 million by 2028, at a CAGR of 9.9% during the 2021-2028 period. The global market exhibited a decline of -6.5% in 2020 as compared to the average year-on-year growth during 2017-2019. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with neurothrombectomy devices witnessing a negative impact on demand across all regions amid the pandemic. The rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.

Neurothrombectomy devices are clot removal products that are used to treat ischemic stroke, which occurs when a blood clot blocks blood flow to the brain, depriving it of oxygen and blood. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 87.0% of all strokes reported in the U.S. are ischemic strokes. The first treatment of choice for ischemic stroke is mechanical thrombectomy, where a clot is removed mechanically by a specialist using clot retrievers or suction devices and thrombolytic therapy, in which medication is administered to dissolve the clot.  

Globally, the increasing adoption of these devices is due to the rising awareness and incidences of acute ischemic stroke along with the demand for minimally invasive procedures. For instance, according to the data published by American Stroke Association, it was reported that more than 690,000 ischemic strokes are reported annually in the U.S. Also, increasing investments by market players in research and development of advanced devices and availability of reimbursement policies to cover treatment costs are some of the factors responsible for the growth of the market.


Decline in Number of Neurothrombectomy Procedures Amid Pandemic to Hamper Market Growth

The outbreak of COVID-19 impacted negatively on the neurothrombectomy devices market growth. Key players operating in the market reported a decline in their revenues due to reduction in elective procedures. The government laid guidelines for hospitals to postpone non-essential surgeries. These changes, along with travel restrictions and quarantine, reduced patient visits to the hospitals, which further decreased the diagnosis of neurological conditions and the number of neurothrombectomy procedures performed during the 2020-2021 period.  

  • For instance, according to the data published by the International Journal of Stroke in 2021, it was reported that the total mechanical thrombectomy procedures decreased to 12.7% during the first three months of the pandemic from March to May in 2020 globally.

Also, frequent outbreaks of new COVID-19 variants in the U.K. and India are further restricting the number of non-essential surgeries and increasing the burden on affected countries’ healthcare systems. However, healthcare facilities are continuously taking initiatives to handle the situation in a more comprehensive way as compared to 2020.

Introduction of Advanced Devices to Aid Market Growth

Due to increasing incidence of ischemic stroke, the need to introduce advanced products in the market has increased. Even though the design and manufacturing of these devices are complicated, major players in the market are focusing on investing in research and development to launch innovative products. The development of new aspiration or suction devices, clot retrievers, and aspiration catheters based on advanced technology for ischemic stroke is driving the market growth. These latest devices are integrated with advanced features and offer distinct benefits such as high tracking ability, smooth retrieval, ease to use, and others.

  • For instance, in October 2021, Phenox GmbH launched pRESET 6-50 mechanical thrombectomy devices globally to expand its technology for acute ischemic stroke. The product has the longest stent retriever in the phenox product portfolio. This addition of a long stent retriever helps in better patient outcomes and improved mortality rates.

Hence, the constant focus of market players in introducing advanced devices is the latest trend observed in the market and is expected to boost the adoption of neurothrombectomy devices during the forecast period.


Increasing Prevalence of Acute Ischemic Strokes to Drive Market Growth

The global market is driven by an increasing prevalence of ischemic stroke. For instance, according to the data published by American Heart Association, it was estimated that the global prevalence of ischemic stroke was 77.2 million and a total of 3.3 million died due to ischemic stroke in 2019. Due to higher prevalence rates, the awareness among patients and the need for treatment are also increasing. For instance, major countries, including India, China, and Japan are implementing cost-effective treatments, government programs, and creating awareness by conducting awareness campaigns on stroke treatment.

Thus, recent technological advancements, growing demand for minimally invasive procedures, and availability of adequate reimbursement policies are boosting the adoption of neurothrombectomy devices globally.    


High Cost of Neurothrombectomy Devices to Hinder Market Growth

Among the treatment options available to treat ischemic stroke, mechanical thrombectomy is the main procedure where the blood clots are removed mechanically by a specialist. The procedure is highly specialized treatment thus requires specialized devices for the procedure. These devices are complex to design and expensive to manufacture. The process should be completed within 6 to 24 hours from the start of stroke symptoms.

  • For instance, according to an article published by National Institute for Health and Care Excellence in 2019, the cost of stent retrievers and aspiration catheters ranges from USD 625 to USD 1,530 and USD 1,700 to USD 5,700 per unit respectively.

The above factors along with limited thrombectomy stroke centers and lack of awareness of the neurothrombectomy condition in emerging countries are a few major factors restricting its adoption and growth rate in emerging countries.
