Neuromodulation Devices Market - Global Industry Size, Market Share, Trends, Analysis, And Forecast 2012 - 2018

Neuromodulation devices are used to carry out a process by which a neuron uses one or more neurotransmitters to regulate other populations of neurons. Neuromodulation is a physiological process by which nervous activity is regulated by controlling the physiological levels of several classes of neurotransmitters. One of the fastest growing sectors of the medical devices market, the neuromodulation devices market is estimated to reach a value of US$7.1 bn by 2018, expanding at a CAGR of 14.4% in the period from 2012 to 2018.

Neuromodulation devices are used to provide relief to a patient through modulation or alteration of nervous system function. Neuromodulation functions by stimulating the nerves to produce responses that are natural or by the application of small doses of medicines directly at the site where required. Due to an increase in the adoption of minimally invasive treatment options and medical tourism, the market for neuromodulation devices is expected to grow in the next decade. 

The report addresses questions related to the neuromodulation devices market such as the details about the various segments and sub-segments of the neuromodulation devices market, the current and future trends, the growth drivers, and the factors inhibiting the market. Collated by expert market analysts, the study can be used for expansion, competition monitoring, and for investing in the neuromodulation devices market. 

Overview of the Neuromodulation Devices Market

The global neuromodulation devices market is segmented on the basis of technology, application, and geography.
