    The increasing incidence of neurological diseases, coupled with the growing geriatric population, drives the demand for brain implants to treat and manage the disease. The deep brain stimulation (DBS) technique is used to treat epilepsy cases due to the low therapeutic response exhibited by the patient’s body to medication during seizures and reduced success rates associated with surgeries. Researchers from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill claim to have generated new neurons in the brain, which can be stimulated using DBS. DBS for Alzheimer's involves utilizing an implanted device similar to a heart pacemaker and two attached wires that deliver mild electrical pulses directly to the fornix area of the brain. Electrical stimulation can activate the memory circuitry in the brain to sharpen its function. Thus, neural implants such as DBS and vagus nerve stimulation are increasingly being used to treat patients with PD and other neurological conditions.

    Segmental Analysis:

    The brain implants market, by treatment, is segmented into deep brain stimulation, spinal cord stimulator, vagus nerve stimulator, invasive and noninvasive brain–computer interfaces, responsive neurostimulation for seizures, auditory brainstem implant, and ophthalmic aids/implant. The spinal cord stimulator segment held the largest share of the market in 2022. However, the invasive and noninvasive brain–computer interfaces segment is estimated to register the highest CAGR in the market during 2022–2030. Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) can help manage chronic pain when the cause cannot be entirely treated using conventional methods, or the injury cannot be repaired. This therapy offers relief and improves the daily functioning of patients suffering from chronic pain. It is indicated for the management of chronic, intractable pain of the trunk, including unilateral or bilateral pain. Furthermore, SCS helps in targeted pain relief. SCS devices are available in different varieties that can be used as an alternative to other sorts of treatments, such as opioids, to which patients can develop addiction.

    According to a report published by the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center in June 2021, a spinal cord injury is thought to affect nearly 296,000 persons in the US. The demand for spinal cord stimulators is likely to rise with the increasing cases of spinal cord illness. Thus, the elevated incidences of spinal illnesses and chronic lower back pain, in combination with the availability of medical reimbursements, favors the growth of the brain implants market for the SCS segment.

    Based on application, the brain implants market is segmented into chronic pain, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy, essential tremor, depression, dystonia, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis/stroke/spinal cord injury, and neurofibromatosis 2/total ossification of the cochlea. The chronic pain segment held the largest market share in 2022. The Alzheimer’s disease segment is expected to register the highest CAGR during 2022–2030. Chronic pain refers to persistent or recurring pain that persists beyond the average healing time of an injury or illness, usually persisting for more than 3–6 months. It can result from various underlying conditions and can affect any part of the body. Chronic pain is a complex and multifaceted condition having a significant impact on the physical and emotional well-being, quality of life, and daily functioning of people. Managing chronic pain can be challenging as it often involves a combination of treatments—including medication, physical therapy, lifestyle changes, and psychological interventions. According to UCSF estimates, 1 in 4 persons in the US were experiencing chronic pain in 2020, and many of them were resistant to therapy. People who have pain from spinal injuries, post-stroke pain, phantom limb pain, nerve pain, and other illnesses frequently experience misery without much hope for treatment.

    Brain implant technologies have been explored as an alternative approach for controlling and alleviating chronic pain in cases that cannot be controlled effectively using conventional treatments. DBS is a type of brain implant that has been studied for its potential effectiveness in chronic pain management. In March 2022, the National Institutes of Health awarded the professors of neurological surgery and staff at the USCF Weill Institute for Neurosciences a five-year grant totaling US$ 7.56 million for an advanced DBS solution as a chronic pain treatment. It's 1 of 10 grants from the NIH's Helping to End Addiction Long-Term (HEAL) Initiative that is worth more than US$ 40 million. Thus, the increasing funding for research on chronic pain propels the brain implant market for this segment.

    Based on end user, the brain implants market is bifurcated into hospitals and specialized clinics/neurological centers. The hospitals segment held a larger market share in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a higher CAGR during 2022–2030. Hospitals are complex organizations that provide healthcare services by using complicated but specialized scientific equipment. They employ teams of professionals trained to address the problems of modern medical sciences. They are all coordinated together for the common goal of restoring and maintaining good health. As specialized healthcare facilities, hospitals have key set-ups for the diagnosis, treatment, and management of various neurological conditions that may require brain implant interventions. Hospitals provide pre-and post-operative care, which includes the assessment and selection of suitable candidates for brain implants. They also prompt continuous monitoring and programming and schedule follow-up visits to ensure the proper functioning of these implants, eventually optimizing outcomes for patients undergoing implantation procedures. Hospitals serve as centers of expertise, housing multidisciplinary teams of neurologists, neurosurgeons, nurses, and other healthcare professionals who collaborate to provide specialized care for patients receiving brain implants.

    Hospitals play a pivotal role in conducting research and clinical trials to advance knowledge, improve technologies, and expand the applications of brain implant devices.
