Stereotaxic Instruments Market

Stereotaxic Instruments Market is Expected to be Flourished by Increasing Demand for Accurate Localization of Brain Lesions


Stereotaxic instruments are medical devices that are used for accurate localization of brain lesions during neurological procedures. These instruments use coordinate systems to locate targets inside the brain and guide surgical or biopsy procedures. Stereotaxic instruments find wide applications during procedures such as deep brain stimulation surgery, brain biopsy, implantation of radioactive seeds, lesions and intracerebral therapeutic delivery. Deep brain stimulation is a surgical procedure that involves placement of electrodes within the brain to deliver electrical stimulation to precise targets to treat neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy and chronic pain. The global demand for deep brain stimulation surgery has witnessed steady growth owing to increasing prevalence of Parkinson’s disease. The Global Stereotaxic Instruments Market Size is estimated to be valued at US$ 175 million in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 12% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics:

Stereotaxic Instruments Market is Expected to be Flourished by Increasing Demand for Accurate Localization of Brain Lesions

One of the major drivers accelerating the growth of stereotaxic instruments market is increasing demand for accurate localization of brain lesions during neurological procedures. Stereotaxic instruments aid neurosurgeons in precise targeting of diseased regions in the brain that need surgical treatment or biopsy. Growing prevalence of neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease has fuelled the demand for stereotactic guided neurological procedures globally. According to WHO, around 50 million people worldwide are estimated to be living with dementia as of 2020. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common cause of dementia accounting for 60-70% of cases. As per estimates, around 10 million new cases of dementia are reported annually worldwide. This growing prevalence of neurological diseases is expected to significantly propel the demand for stereotaxic instruments during the forecast period of 2024-2031.
