In 2012, the Japanese market for neurological devices was valued at nearly $553 million. (For a free synopsis of this research, click here).
The Japanese market for neurological devices includes bare platinum coils, coated coils, liquid embolics,
neurovascular stents, neurovascular catheters, neurovascular guidewires, deep brain stimulators, spinal
cord stimulators, sacral nerve stimulators, intrathecal pumps, frame-based stereotactic systems, frameless
stereotactic systems and aneurysm clips. The growth in this market will be driven by the rapidly growing
aging population in Japan and the increased demand and acceptance of endovascular cerebral aneurysm
Segment Focus: Aneurysm Clip Market
The aneurysm clip market is a segment within the neurosurgical devices market along with neurosurgical
endoscopes and stereotactics. Aneurysm clipping procedures are invasive procedures which were a
conventional practice before the availability of sophisticated and minimally invasive technology involved
in neurovascular intervention: detachable coils and liquid embolics. It is expected that the market for
aneurysm clips will be maintained in Japan, primarily due to Japan’s historic usage and lack of surgeon
training for endovascular aneurysm and AVM treatment. It is expected that the market for aneurysm clips
will grow at a CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast period.
