Gamma Knife Market Size Worth $239.2 Million by 2025 | CAGR: 3.7%: Grand View Research, Inc.
The global gamma knife market is expected to reach USD 239.2 million by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Increasing prevalence of cancer, brain tumors, and other neurological diseases, rising adoption of these instruments in surgery centers, growing preference for Minimally Invasive Surgeries (MIS), and technological advancements in the device are amongst few factors expected to drive the market.
Gamma knife therapy is used for treatment of various brain and neurological disorders such as brain tumors, brain metastases, epilepsy, and arteriovenous malformations. Demand for these instruments in surgery centers is growing due to their various advantages such as safety, micro precision, lack of postsurgical complications, and lack of incisions.
Technological advancements have improved precision in surgery. For instance, upgradation of Leksell Gamma Knife models U, B, C/4C, and Perfexion to Icon provided micro precision in surgery and boosted adoption of this device in surgery centers. According to reports published by Elekta AB, approximately 70,000 patients undergo gamma knife surgery each year. This number is expected to increase over the forecast period owing to rising prevalence of target diseases and increasing preference for MIS.
In addition, growing demand for MIS over open surgeries is one of the key factors responsible for increasing adoption of this therapy. Gamma knife treatment procedure results in fewer traumas and faster recovery as compared to open surgeries. It helps reduce hospital stays, thus ensuring economic viability and reduction in medical expenses. Lack of incisions and postsurgical complications are key factors responsible for boosting demand for minimally invasive surgeries.
