Electroencephalogram (EEG) Caps Market: Overview

  • Electroencephalogram (EEG) refers to neurophysiologic estimation of the electrical activity of the brain recorded and analyzed with the help of electrodes placed on the scalp or, in special cases, is inserted subdurally or in the cerebral cortex. Electrical activities thus recorded are framed in the form of electroencephalogram, symbolizing summation of post-synaptic potentials obtained from a large number of neurons.
  • EEG electrodes are mostly used to detect abnormalities in the electrical activity of the brain, test for epilepsy, identifying the location of suspected brain tumor, inflammation or other diseases associated with the brain. During a normal EEG procedure, approximately 16 electrodes to 25 electrodes are attached during a single test sitting. For quick application, EEG electrodes are placed in elastic caps, rigid grids, or meshes to ensure that the data can be collected from identical scalp positions across respondents.
  • Based on the usage pattern, two types of EEG electrodes, conventional and modern, are being marketed. In conventional scalp EEG, the recording is acquired by application of electrodes over scalp post light abrasion of scalp to reduce impedance.
  • Several systems typically use electrodes, which are each attached to an individual wire. However, conventional EEG electrodes result in discomfort and reduce patient compliance. In order to overcome these issues, some systems make use of EEG caps in which electrodes are embedded. These systems are particularly common where high-density arrays of electrodes are required.
  • The global electroencephalogram (EEG) caps market is projected to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period. Advantages of EEG caps over conventional electrodes and introduction of advanced neurology diagnostic devices are expected to drive the electroencephalogram (EEG) caps market.

Key Drivers of Global Electroencephalogram (EEG) Caps Market

  • The global electroencephalogram (EEG) caps market is anticipated to be driven by the rise in geriatric population, increase in the number of neurological disorders, and technological advancements in EEG devices  
  • According to a report published by Alzheimer’s Disease International (ADI), it is estimated that in 2010, there were 35.6 million people affected with Alzheimer’s disease worldwide, which is likely grow to 115.4 million people by 2050. Approximately 6.2 million people die due to stroke each year with over 80% of deaths occurring in low and middle income countries. More than 50 million people have epilepsy worldwide. Rising burden of neurological disorders is anticipated to fuel the global electroencephalogram (EEG) caps market.
  • Setting up EEG electrodes takes time, as it require precise placement of electrodes. Moreover, EEG devices are incompatible in carrying out EEG with MRI scanning simultaneously, which creates discomfort to the patient as well to the medical practitioner. However, product advancements to enhance comfort levels and patient compliance with EEG devices are anticipated to boost the market during the forecast period.
  • In March 2014, Rhythmlink International, LLC received the FDA approval for Disposable MR Conditional Cup electrodes. Rhythmlink’s Disposable MR Conditional Cup Electrodes can safely remain on a patient during the MR scan in static magnetic fields without producing harmful heating, undue image artifact or motion artifact.

North America to Hold Major Share of Global Electroencephalogram (EEG) Caps Market

  • North America is projected to account for a prominent share of the global electroencephalogram (EEG) caps market during the forecast period. Increase in geriatric population, high rate of adoption of advanced medical devices, and presence of major market players are expected to fuel the growth of the electroencephalogram (EEG) caps market in the region. Moreover, favorable reimbursement policies, increase in the number of diagnostic and imaging centers, and rise in funding by governments for neurology research are anticipated to propel the market in North America during the forecast period
  • Due to growing number of campaigns, government interventions in enhancing healthcare facilities, and rising disposable incomes in Asian and Middle Eastern countries, the growth rate of electroencephalogram (EEG) caps market in these regions is high
