Global Hydrocephalus Shunts Market to Reach US$ 540.4 Million by 2027, Impelled by Rising Prevalence of Neurological Disorders

Published on Sep 06, 2022

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Hydrocephalus Shunts Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global hydrocephalus shunts market reached a value of US$ 412.6 Million in 2021. Hydrocephalus is the occurrence of a medical condition when the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) accumulated in the brain results in increased intracranial pressure in the skull. It is generally caused by a variety of different diseases and injuries, including an obstruction to the CSF flow. It is commonly treated by hydrocephalus shunts that are generally adopted by healthcare professionals in the treatment of hydrocephalus. It is a flexible tube that is placed in the area where cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is produced, which allows the draining of CSF to a different part of the body where it can be absorbed.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Hydrocephalus Shunts Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the increasing prevalence of neurological disorders among individuals. This can be attributed to the growing geriatric population and the hectic lifestyles led by working professionals. With a considerable rise in the number of hydrocephalic patients, there has been a continuous increase in the demand for hydrocephalus shunts across the globe. Due to continual technological advancements, neurosurgeons are inclining towards advanced programmable valves, shunts and antisiphon devices to avoid the siphoning effect over cerebrospinal fluid, which is further creating a positive market outlook. The market is further driven by numerous initiatives undertaken by private and government organizations to spread awareness regarding hydrocephalus. Other factors, including continuous developments in the healthcare infrastructure, widespread improvements in medical facilities across rural and geographical extended areas, the rising number of accidents, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players, are also influencing the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 540.4 Million by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 4.20% during 2022-2027.
