The global external ventricular drain market size was estimated at USD 2.64 billion in 2021 and is projected to hit USD 4.15 billion by 2030, expanding growth at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period 2022 to 2030.
Major Trends in the External Ventricular Drain Industry:
An external ventricular drain (EVD) is employed for the drainage of CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) from the brain ventricles. The ventricular drainage arrangements are used to release elevated ICP (intracranial pressure), drain blood post hemorrhages, trench the infected cerebrospinal fluid, distract the stream of cerebrospinal liquid, and supervise the intracranial stress. A ventricular drainage apparatus contains an exterior drainage arrangement linked to ventricular catheter. The arrangement comprises numerous components like an ant reflux gathering chamber, access port, pressure scale, and drainage bag. It is typically inserted in the operation theatre by a brain surgeon, and the process is carried out with general anesthesia.
Over the recent past, the incidence of hydrocephalus has augmented significantly, enhancing the demand for EVD (external ventricular drain) as a procedure of treatment. The high incidence of hydrocephalus and the rising geriatric population are major aspects that are anticipated to drive the market progress over the forecast time-duration. The rising healthcare market in emerging economies is also anticipated to provide development opportunities for the external ventricular drain industry over the forecast duration.
The increasing prevalence of hydrocephalus is one of the major driving factors for the growth of global external ventricular drain market. Hydrocephalus is an atypical build-up of liquid in the ventricles (cavities) deep inside the brain. This surplus fluid induces the ventricles to broaden, putting stress on the tissues of the brain. Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) is the colorless, clear fluid that shields and cushions the spine and brain. Usually, cerebrospinal fluid tides through the ventricles and rinses the spinal cord and brain before getting resorbed into the blood flow. The body stereotypically produces adequate CSF every day and engrosses the same quantity. Nevertheless, when the regular flow or assimilation of CSF is jammed it can lead to an aggregation of CSF. The stress from excessive CSF can restrain the brain from operating properly and induce brain damage and even demise. As per the Hydrocephalus Association, around 1 million individuals in the U.S. are affected by hydrocephalus, in each stage of lifetime, from newborns to the aged. Hydrocephalus can be extremely grave, and even lethal if left untreated. Around 50% of individuals who don’t undergo treatment for hydrocephalus die. While, the other half live with what is termed arrested hydrocephalus.

COVID-19 Impact on Global External Ventricular Drain Market
The COVID-19 pandemic is attracting attention to the previously overburdened public healthcare systems in numerous countries. The pandemic has highlighted the strong necessity for sustainable outlay in healthcare arrangements, including in the healthcare workforce, and for prudent working conditions, equipment, and training specially with respect to PPE (personal protective equipment) and work-related safety. Augmented spending on investigation and advance along with collaborations, acquisition, and mergers are the central strategies adopted by the major companies active in the global external ventricular drain market.
Due to the overburden of the medical staff, the people who need periodic surgeries to drain out CSF (cerebrospinal fluid) and for the regular monitoring of CSF are at high risks in the wake of the current situation. Surgical amenities need a emergency plan for preserving surgical care in an on-going or post pandemic phase.
