A rise in the global geriatric population, increasing number of patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease (PD) and growing awareness about neurological movement disorders among patients have triggered the growth of the deep brain stimulation devices market. Globally, neurological disorders are one of the major causes of mortality and account for approximately 12% of deaths per annum. Of these, cerebrovascular diseases account for 85% deaths. Parkinson’s disease is the most common neurological disorder after Alzheimer’s disease. Symptoms associated with this disease include tremors, slowness of movement, muscle stiffness and trouble with balance. Drug therapy is the most effective treatment option available to control PD in the initial stages; however, a large number of medicines are required to control the disease during its advanced stages.
In the later stages of PD, surgical treatment using deep brain stimulation (DBS) devices is used to control symptoms of the disease. DBS devices are an effective, clinically proven and legally approved advanced treatment option for mild to severe PD. The market for DBS devices is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period from 2014 to 2020. However, the high cost of the surgical procedure could hamper the growth of the market. The growing burden of PD on health care systems, along with the uncertainty of economic conditions in some developed economies such as the U.S. and Europe has forced original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to develop cost-effective devices for PD treatment.
