Vagal Nerve Stimulation (VNS) Market Information: By Product (Implantable VNS Devices and External VNS Devices), By Application (Depression, Epilepsy, Migraine, And Others), By End Users (Hospitals, Ambulatory Surgical Centers, And Others) - Global Forecast Till 2027

Market Highlights

Vagus nerve stimulation is a treatment for neurological disorders like epilepsy that involves a stimulator or pulse generator, which is placed inside the body and connected to the left vagus nerve in the neck. The stimulator sends regular, mild electrical stimulations through this nerve to help calm down the irregular electrical brain activity that leads to seizures. The treatment for epilepsy works differently from patient to patient and vagus nerve stimulation therapy is a form of treatment for people with epilepsy whose seizures are not controlled with medication. Implants like electronic neck implant are important for treating neurological disorder such as epilepsy. 

According to Migraine Research Foundation, (2014), migraine was the 3rd most prevalent illness in the world. Nearly 1 in 4 U.S. households includes someone with migraine. Moreover, 12% of the population including children have migraine problem. 18% of American women, 6% of men, and 10% of children experience migraines. Mostly migraine occurs at the age of 25-55.

Increasing prevalence of neurological disorder like epilepsy, rising need for better treatment, increasing investment of biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries in RD, and availability of funds drive the growth of the market. Moreover, increasing government support for research development, changing lifestyle, and rapid development in technology will fuel the market growth during the forecast period. However, high cost of the treatment may slow the market growth during the review period.

The global vagal nerve stimulation or vagus nerve stimulation market is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~ 8.68 % during the forecast period 2017-2023.
