Subdural hematoma is accumulation of blood outside the brain, which may happen due to head injury or lumbar puncture. Increase in pressure on the brain caused by subdural hematoma may be lethal, and sometimes, life threatening. Certain types of subdural hematoma may cure suddenly; but others may need surgical drainage of the blood.

Subdural evacuation is a surgical technology which withdraws accumulated blood from the brain caused by subdural hematoma. In this procedure, subdural hematoma is removed through a minimally invasive burr hole created by surgeon. Complicated surgeries are recommended if the patient is suffering from an emergency condition.

The global subdural evacuation procedure market is primarily driven by rise in case of head and spinal injuries and growing rate of diagnosis and treatment of neurological abnormalities across the world. However, growth of the global subdural evacuation procedure market is anticipated to be hampered due to high risks associated with neurological surgeries. Nevertheless, technological advancements, increasing R&D investment made by major players, and competitive business strategies are projected to augment the growth of the global subdural evacuation procedure market during the forecast period.

The global subdural evacuation procedure market can be classified based on type of subdural hematoma, size of subdural hematoma, end-user, and geography. In terms of type of subdural hematoma, the global market can be divided into acute, sub-acute, and chronic subdural hematoma. An acute subdural hematoma exhibits symptoms within 24 hours of head injury and requires emergency surgeries. Sub-acute hematoma shows symptoms within 2 to 10 days after head injury, while in case of chronic subdural hematoma, symptoms arise after several weeks of the injury. 

Based on size of subdural hematoma, the global subdural evacuation procedure market can be categorized into small subdural hematoma and large subdural hematoma. In the case of small subdural hematoma, surgeons remove blood clots through a small catheter. On the other hand, in case of large subdural hematoma, surgeons need to open the skull and dura space and eliminate the blood clot through irrigation.

In terms of end-user, the global subdural evacuation procedure market can be split into hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers, specialized neurological clinics, and other health care settings.

Geographically, the global subdural evacuation procedure market can be segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America led the global subdural evacuation procedure market with maximum market share in 2017, due to the significant number of head and spinal cord injuries, technological advancements, and presence of major players in the region. In Europe, Germany, France, and the U.K. held major share of the subdural evacuation procedure market in 2017. The subdural evacuation procedure market in Italy and Spain is anticipated to grow rapidly during the forecast period. Highly developed health care infrastructure, high rate of diagnosis and treatment of neurological disorders, and participation of major companies are the key factors that supported the growth of the subdural evacuation procedure market in Germany, France, and the U.K. in 2017.

In Asia, China and Japan held dominant share of the subdural evacuation procedure market in 2017. The subdural evacuation procedure market in India is estimated to expand at a significant CAGR in the near future, owing to the rapidly developing health care industry, presence of key companies, and intense competition between domestic and international players in the country. In Latin America and Middle East & Africa, underdeveloped health care industry is anticipated to hamper the growth of the subdural evacuation procedure market during the forecast period.

Key companies operating in the global subdural evacuation procedure market include Medtronic, Integra LifeSciences Corporation, Penumbra, Inc, Spiegelberg GmbH & Co. KG, and KANEKA MEDIX CORP.
