INSIGHTS BY SEGMENTS
Neurosurgery segment is likely to be the dominant segment during the forecast period
Outsourced segment is growing at a rapid pace due to its benefits over in-sourced monitoring. Hospitals prefer outsourced monitoring as it eliminates the need for purchase of premium priced Intraoperative neuromonitoring capital equipment and avoid the requirement to appoint full-time IONM professionals.
In terms of modality, the EP segment dominated with around 68% in the global Intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) market shares due to its broad range of surgical applications and the high utilization rate. This segment is anticipated to be driven at a slightly growth rate during 2016−2022 and will retain to be major segment during the forecast period. In terms of the growth rate, orthopedic surgeries are likely to grow at a higher CAGR than other surgical types. However, neurosurgery will remain the major revenue contributor during the forecast period in the application segment.
INSIGHTS BY GEOGRAPHY
The North America market is likely to be the largest during the forecast period
The primary factor for the high share of North America is the existence of the favorable and constantly improving reimbursement scenario in the region. The penetration of Intraoperative neuromonitoring devices is significantly higher in the US than other developed or developing countries worldwide. Their demand in this region is also rapidly growing increased in rate of utilization of IONM for varied surgeries and due to increase in demand for out-sourced services. Europe is the second largest region, followed by APAC, Latin America, and MEA.
