The colorless fluid that surrounds the brain and spinal cord. The primary functions of CSF are to provide mechanical support and to maintain a stable environment in the central nervous system by circulating nutrients and removing waste products. The total volume of cerebrospinal fluid ranges from 140 to 260 ml. Alterations in the absorption, circulation, and production of cerebrospinal fluid result in pathological conditions.

Based on the type of treatment used, the global cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) management market is segmented into:
- Shunt insertion
- CSF drainage procedures
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a clear, colorless fluid that surrounds the central nervous system. The total volume of CSF ranges from 140 to 260 mL. Alterations in the absorption, circulation, and production of cerebrospinal fluid result in pathological conditions. Hydrocephalus is a condition in which there is an abnormal accumulation of cerebrospinal fluid inside the brain. This excess fluid applies pressure to the brain, damaging the brain tissue.
The global CSF management market is segmented on the basis of treatment types to treat hydrocephalus, such as shunt insertion and CSF drainage procedures. Shunt insertion is the most common and primary procedure used to treat A shunt is a mechanical device used to divert excess fluid from the brain to another part of the body. In the base year of 2015, shunt insertion held the largest share of the global CSF management market in terms of revenue.
But the risk associated with CSF shunts, such as the fact that it leads to post-surgical infection by the patient’s own skin organisms, acts as a growth limiting factor for the shunt insertion market. A CSF drainage procedure is used instead of a shunt insertion procedure to create a pathway for CSF flow within the cavities of the brain. This surgery involves creating a small opening at the bottom of the ventricle or in between the ventricles. The CSF drainage procedure is a more accurate and cost-effective treatment and is anticipated to grow further during the forecast period of 2016–2024.
For the purpose of this study, the global market for cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) management is categorized into three segments:
- North America
- Asia Pacific
- Latin America (LATAM)
- Middle East and Africa (MEA)
Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is a clear, colorless fluid surrounding the central nervous system. The CSF provides mechanical support to the brain and spinal cord. It also maintains a stable environment in the central nervous system by circulating nutrients and removing waste products. Alterations in the absorption, circulation, and production of cerebrospinal fluid result in pathological conditions.
In the base year of 2015, North America held the largest share of the global CSF management market, and it is expected to contribute the highest revenue during the forecast period. A rise in the incidence of geriatric populations affected by CNS disease, rapid technological innovations, growing demand for minimally invasive surgeries, and acceptance of new treatment approaches would further drive market growth in this region. Asia-Pacific is anticipated to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period of 2016–2024. Key factors such as economic development, an increase in awareness related to neurological diseases, the development of healthcare infrastructure, and an upsurge in funding by government agencies and private organizations in Asia Pacific are expected to drive the market’s growth throughout the forecast period of 2016–2024.
