Neurofeedback Systems Market By Type (Frequency Neurofeedback System, Low Energy Neurofeedback System, Slow Cortical Potential Neurofeedback System, Hemoencephalographic Neurofeedback System, Low Resolution Electromagnetic Tomography and Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI)), By Application (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Epilepsy, Anxiety, Insomnia, Migraine, Drug Addiction and Others) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2018 – 2026

The neurofeedback systems market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.5% from 2018 to 2026, from US$ 820.7 million in 2017 to US$ 1,565.6 million by 2026. According to the latest research findings published in The Lancet by the Global Burden of Disease (GBD), neurological diseases are the leading cause of death and disability worldwide. A neurofeedback system also called an EEG biofeedback system, is a noninvasive type of brain training system. It employs electrodes to record and modulate brain waves in the treatment of neurological diseases.

Market Synopsis

Simplicity and popularity among neurologists drive the market growth for frequency neurofeedback systems.

Frequency neurofeedback systems are currently reigning in the type segment of the neurofeedback systems market. The key features contributing to its positive growth are its ease and simplicity of operation and its popularity among neurologists. It uses 2–4 surface electrodes and so is popularly called "surface neurofeedback."

It is employed to change the speed and amplitude of specific brain waves for the treatment of neurological disorders such as ADHD, insomnia, and anxiety. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is the latest neurofeedback system that is employed to modulate brain activity in the deep subcortical brain region. It is the most effective method used in the planning and execution of epilepsy surgery.

The market for epilepsy is growing due to rising prevalence rates and a significant increase in the number of patients who are resistant to medication.

Epilepsy is currently dominating the application segment for the neurofeedback systems market. Epilepsy affects 50 million people worldwide, making it the most common neurological disease. It causes social discrimination and stigma for people suffering from epilepsy. There has been a significant increase in the number of patients showing resistance to medication.

In epilepsy, the brain continuously misfires signals; hence, neurofeedback modulates the brain to inhibit slow waves and promote mid-range frequencies, which eventually prevent seizures. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has garnered a lot of attention in the last decade. Medications such as Concerta, Ritalin, and Dexedrine have been used as long-term treatments for ADHD. Evidence has been reported of severe adverse effects associated with this medication, such as anxiety, insomnia, and decreased appetite. Neurofeedback therapy decreases the brain's activity in the theta band region and promotes activity in the beta band region in patients suffering from ADHD.

The rising prevalence of neurological disorders, as well as the availability of advanced healthcare infrastructure, are driving market growth in North America.

North America currently controls 60% of the market for neurofeedback systems. The major features responsible for its dominance in the global market for neurofeedback systems are the rising prevalence of neurological disorders and the existence of advanced healthcare infrastructure. As per the statistics provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are approximately 3.4 million U.S. citizens suffering from active epilepsy.

Europe is the second-largest market, with a share of 20%, on account of its large population base suffering from insomnia and anxiety. Several patients are showing resistance to medication and are seeking EEG-based therapies to change the brainwaves to counteract ADHD, epilepsy, and migraine. Asia Pacific represents a share of 8% and is set to register impressive growth during the forecast period from 2018 to 2026 on account of developing health infrastructure and rampant growth in neurological diagnosis and treatment.
