The market for CSF management devices includes adjustable and fixed pressure shunts as well as ventricular and lumbar external drainage systems. The market will experience mid-single digit growth over the forecast period, driven primarily by growth in the adjustable pressure shunt market segment. This market segment is also the largest, followed by ventricular drainage systems, fixed pressure shunts and then lumbar drainage systems.
Adjustable pressure shunts are expected to remain the largest segment and are expected to maintain the highest growth. Fixed pressure shunts will remain the second smallest segment and will decline over the forecast period. A declining market will also be seen for the smallest segment, the lumbar drainage system. The ventricular drainage system segment will stay fairly stable with a slight decrease in market value due to competitive pricing.
There is room in this market for substantial innovation as many of the technologies still experience significant complications and novel medical devices to overcome these issues could drive up prices and increase the market value.
