Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/20/2017 -- As The Global Intracranial Pressure Monitors Market undergoes a paradigm shift from invasive to non-invasive devices, manufacturers are facing intense competition, prompting them to focus on technological advancements. Leading players such as Integra LifeSciences Corp., Medtronic Inc., and Codman & Shurtleff Inc. are aggressively integrating advanced technologies in their products. In line with this trend, companies are now racing to introduce next-generation products in the market.
Looking forward, untapped markets in emerging economies are likely to offer lucrative opportunities to participants. Entering into strategic partnerships with local players will help major companies to seize better shares in the market.
Intracranial Pressure Monitors Gain Impetus from Rising Incidence of Traumatic Injuries
"The frenzied lifestyle of people across the world has increased the frequency of traumatic injuries and augmented the prevalence of strokes, thereby escalating the demand for intracranial pressure monitors," says an analyst at TMR. Cranial injuries and head trauma are mostly caused by road and industrial accidents, which lead to death or permanent disability for hundreds of individuals every year. Elevated intracranial pressure causes around 2 casualties in every 10 cases of head injuries across the world. The increasing reports of brain injuries in adults as well as pediatric patients have also fueled the demand for intracranial pressure monitoring significantly.

Strokes are another prominent factor that has escalated the application of these pressure monitors. Large hemispheric strokes increase the cerebral perfusion pressure and enhance the mean flow velocity of the middle cerebral arteries in the patient, raising the intracranial pressure. The growing prevalence of high blood pressure among people across the world has augmented the frequency of strokes, thereby boosting the demand for intracranial pressure monitors substantially.
Hitherto, the risk associated with the invasive nature of intracranial pressure monitors, such as bacterial infections, hampered their adoption across the world. The reports about cerebrospinal fluid infection, which sometimes leads to fatal consequences, have limited the application of intracranial pressure monitors significantly.
