Wireless Brain Sensors Market by Device Type, Socket Type, and Application - Global Industry Analysis and Forecast to 2025

Report Code : HC06161

Wireless brain sensor is an emerging technology. Wireless brain sensors are the devices which monitor intracranial pressure and temperature. Wireless brain sensors can be used during operations to decrease the pressure in the brain. Wireless brain sensors can be used in medical field for detection and diagnosis of tumors, dyslexia, brain and sleep disorders. They can be used in rehabilitation and restoration of an individual who has encountered serious events such as stroke. They can also be used in detection of Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and Huntington's disease. In Parkinson’s disease, monitoring of motor fluctuations will help in managing the condition of the patient. In Huntington’s disease, wireless brain sensors can be used to measure motor impairment. This can be achieved with the help of wireless brain sensors to collect objective information about a patient's motor symptoms.  Due to advances in brain interface technology there have been improvements in wireless brain sensors also. For instance, in November 2016, researchers implanted a wireless device into a paralyzed monkey's brain. With the help of this device they restored movement of the monkey and helped the monkey walk again. In wireless brain sensors, the electrical activity of the brain can be recorded with the help of electroencephalography. Wireless brain sensors can be used to monitor patients who suffer from traumatic brain injury. They can also be used to detect physiological properties of brain and neuronal activities after traumatic brain injury. Through wireless brain sensors large amount of brain data is wirelessly and continuously streamed.

The major factor that drives the wireless brain sensors market is the increase in prevalence of neurological disorders. For instance, according to WHO, in 2014, 20% of the total children and adolescents in the world were suffering from mental disorders or problems. Furthermore, increase in the prevalence of Alzheimer disease and epilepsy will also fuel the growth of this market. For instance, according to Alzheimer’s Association, in 2016, in U.S., more than 5 million people are living with Alzheimer disease and this number is expected to reach up to 16 million by 2050. It also states that 5.5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's dementia and every 60 seconds someone in U.S. develops Alzheimer disease. Additionally, according to WHO, in 2016, worldwide, around 50 million people were having epilepsy.  However, strict regulatory requirements will hamper the growth of wireless brain sensors market.

The key strategy followed by the major players in the market is product launch to gain more share. For instance, in December 2014, Blackrock Microsystems, LLC launches wireless brain research system. With the launch of wireless brain research system, Blackrock Microsystems, LLC will gain more market share.

The major players in the wireless brain sensors market are NeuroSky, Inc., InteraXon Inc., Advanced Brain Monitoring, Inc., and Emotiv Inc.

Market Modeling and Forecasting

We use epidemiology and capital equipment-based models to forecast market size of different segments at country and regional level.

  • Epidemiology-based Forecasting Model: This method uses epidemiology data gathered through various publications and from physicians to estimate population of patients, flow of treatment of individual disease and therapies. The data collected through this method includes statics on incidence of disease, population suffering from disease, and treatment population. This method is used to understand:
  • Number of patients for particular device or medical procedure and
  • Repeated use of particular device depending on health and condition of patient
  • Capital-based Forecasting Model: This method of forecasting is based on number of replacements, installed-based and new sales of capital equipment used in various healthcare and diagnostic centers. These three parameters are calculated and forecast is developed. Installation base is calculated as average number of units per facility; while sales for particular year is calculated from number of new and replace units. Secondary data is collected through various supply chain intermediaries and opinion leaders to arrive at installation and sales rate. These techniques help our analysts in validating market and developed market estimates and forecast.

We do forecast on basis of several parameters such as market drivers, market opportunities, industry trends government regulations, raw materials supply and trade dynamics to ensure relevance of forecast with market scenario. With increasing need to granulized information, we used bottom-up methodology for forecasting where we evaluate each regional segment differently and combined all forecast to develop final market forecast.
