Market Overview

The Hydrocephalus Shunts Market is expected to register a CAGR of 8% during the forecast period. The growth of the market is attributed to the rise in the geriatric population, a rise in the prevalence of brain & neurological disorder and increasing adoption of advanced programmable valves. Neurosurgeons are inclining towards the latest technology shunts, antisiphon devices and advance programmable valves. Antisiphone devices help in avoiding siphon effects over cerebrospinal fluid. Moreover, the increasing prevalence of brain disorders is leading to high demand for advanced shunts for treating hydrocephalus. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the United States, around 20,000 to 30,000 people witness disabilities due to traumatic brain injury which can be the contributing factor for the growth of hydrocephalus shunts market. Furthermore, product launches, product approval and increase in focus by several players on expanding product portfolio in neurosurgery is also anticipated to propel the hydrocephalus shunts market. For instance, during the year 2016, Medtronic, one of the key players for the market studied had received FDA approval for the Neuro valve and shunts for the treatment of cerebrospinal fluid disorder and hydrocephalus. However, issues regarding the infection caused using hydrocephalus shunts may hamper the market growth.

Scope of the Report

Hydrocephalus shunt is a medical device that helps in treating a condition in the brain in which excessive accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid occurs which results in increased intracranial pressure within the skull.  These devices relieve pressure on the brain caused by fluid accumulation.
