03-02-2020 REP-HC-5028 40 Tables 115 pages Format

The sphenoidal electrodes market was valued at USD30.8 Mn by 2019. According to the research citings brought forward by the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 50 million people throughout the globe are suffering from epilepsy in which 80% of the patients belong to middle and low-income countries. The rising prevalence of temporal lobe epilepsy and technological advancement in the sphenoidal electrodes governs its market growth.

 Sphenoidal Electrodes Market

Sphenoidal electrodes are beneficial as they provide a less invasive method in locating the epileptic foci in order to perform the surgical treatment of epilepsy. Temporal lobe epilepsy is the most frequently occurring epilepsy occurring in the adult population. It is heterogeneous in nature and its epileptic foci are located to temporal lateral neocortex or mesial temporal structures. Sphenoidal electrodes are inserted under local anesthesia in a sterile environment employing a lumbar puncture needle below the zygomatic arch through the mandibular notch to record the temporal lobe epilepsy.

Segment Analysis

Stainless steel sphenoidal electrodes were used in the 70's and 80’s owing to its low cost and optimum compatibility to be used for conducting electroencephalogram of the temporal lobe epilepsy. Platinum is currently dominating the product segment for the sphenoidal electrodes market. The chief ergonomic features which made it to capture the market of stainless steel electrodes are low resistance conductance which increases EEG signal transfer and physical durability. They gained prominence in the last decade as it being non-ferromagnetic material makes it more compatible with MRI and good quality signals. The disadvantages associated with the platinum electrodes are that it is polarizable and relatively costly. The silver/silver chloride electrodes are anticipated to be the fastest-growing sphenoidal electrode owing to its inherent features such as low baseline drift, low polarization, and good signal quality while conducting an electroencephalogram (EEG).

Hospitals and clinics are spearheading the end-user segment for the sphenoidal electrodes market. The patients suffering from epileptic seizures are kept under medical supervision in neuropsychiatric hospitals and clinics. A frequent electroencephalogram is conducted to decide the type of epileptic seizures and decide the treatment regimen or surgical procedure accordingly. Research institutes are gaining huge demand due to huge financial funding approved by the government healthcare agencies to provide sphenoidal electrodes to perform accurate brain mapping and EEG for deciding the treatment guidelines for the different types of epileptic seizures occurring in patients worldwide.

North America is representing the largest market share in the geography segment for the sphenoidal electrodes market. The rising prevalence of epilepsy across all age groups primarily determines the sphenoidal electrodes market growth. According to the statistics brought forward by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approximately 1.2% of the United States population is suffering from epilepsy. The existence of well-developed neuropsychiatric hospitals and clinics further increases the demand for the sphenoidal electrodes market. In Europe the market growth is significantly determined by the growing incidence of temporal lobe epilepsy in the adult population. Strategic partnership between academic research institutes and medical device manufacturers in the development of sphenoidal electrodes further propels the market growth in the region. Asia Pacific is anticipated to register stable market growth during the forecast period on account of its rising public health awareness pertaining to conducting EEG of neurochemical activity to facilitate surgery pertaining to epilepsy.
