Apraxia Industry Analysis: By Type (Ideomotor Apraxia, Ideational/Conceptual Apraxia), By Diagnosis (Test To Measure Upper Limb Apraxia, MRI), Treatment (Speech Therapy), End User (Hospitals & Clinics, Research Centers) – Global Forecast Till 2023
The Global Apraxia Industry is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~ 6.4 % during the forecast period 2017-2023.
There are several types of apraxia such as ideomotor apraxia, ideational/conceptual apraxia, buccofacial or orofacial apraxia, constructional apraxia, apraxia of speech, and others. Buccofacial or orofacial apraxia is the most common type, which causes the inability to carry out facial movements on commands such as whistling, coughing, or others.
However, apraxia is found in people with a migraine, especially, in women. According to Migraine Research Foundation, (2014), migraine was the 3rd most prevalent illness in the world. Nearly 1 in 4 U.S. households includes someone with a migraine. Moreover, 12% of the population including children have migraine problem. 18% of American women, 6% of men, and 10% of children experience migraines. Mostly migraine occurs at the age of 25-55, which, in turn, is projected increase the market growth.
Increasing prevalence of neurological disorder like apraxia, epilepsy, rising need for better treatment, increasing investment in biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries in R&D, and availability of funds drive the growth of the market. Moreover, increasing government support for research & development, changing lifestyle, and rapid development in technology is projected to fuel the market growth during the forecast period. However, the high cost of the treatment may slow the market growth during the review period.
