The global nerve repair market is estimated to be valued in excess of US$ 145 Mn in the year 2017 and is projected to be valued at nearly US$ 430 Mn by 2027, registering a CAGR of 11.3% over the forecast period.
Increasing ageing population leading to neurological problems is fuelling the global nerve repair market
Due to the decreased activity of the motor reflexes of geriatric patients, they are prone to trauma and minor accidents owing to age. Increasing geriatric population is eventually increasing the number of patients with nerve injury. According to an article presented by Ademola Adewale, approximately 40% of people older than 65 years report at least one fall per year, which increases to 50% in those older than 80 years. In long-term care facilities, the risk of falls increases to more than 50%-60% per year. Ageing is one of the major factors leading to an increased incidence of nerve damage due to trauma, and this factor is fuelling revenue growth of the global nerve repair market during the assessment period.
Increasing number of neurosurgeons creating awareness about nerve repair procedures
Even though the global opportunity of the nerve repair market is more than US$ 3 Bn, the market penetration of nerve repair procedures is less than 2% worldwide. Nowadays, it has been observed that a growing number of neurosurgeons is creating scope for nerve repair procedures in developing countries like India and South Africa. The market penetration is also expected to increase during the forecast period due to an increase in the number of neurosurgeons, which is creating awareness in developing countries – which in turn is leading to a growth in the sales of nerve repair procedures.
Use of alternate techniques hampering the growth of the nerve repair market
Even though nerve auto graft technique is a gold standard treatment in the realm of nerve repair, there are several other treatments available in the market. One of the techniques is the regeneration of the damaged nerve using stem cell therapy. In this procedure, the adult stem cells are processed and are directly administered to the damaged part of the nerve, eventually regenerating the damaged nerve. These alternative techniques are likely to hinder sales revenue growth of the nerve repair market during the assessment period.
Tapping emerging markets can lead to an immense growth opportunity in the worldwide nerve repair market
As per the current market scenario, it is clear that the nerve repair market is predominately lucrative in the developed regions of the world like North America, Europe, etc. Many of the developing countries like India, Mexico, Indonesia and few of the Middle Eastern countries have a less market penetration of the nerve repair biomaterial products. Hence, there is an immense scope in promoting nerve repair procedures in these emerging markets and this would immensely benefit companies.
