CAS may be the result of brain (neurological) conditions or injuries, such as a stroke, infections or traumatic brain injury.
The apraxia market growth is majorly attributed to the increasing prevalence of neurological disorders, increasing investment of biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries in R&D, and rising need for the better treatment methods drive the growth of the market. Moreover, favorable reimbursement policies, increased application and significant investments in the development of new technologies for the treatment of various neurological diseases are likely to fuel the Apraxia Market growth during the forecast period.
According to the WHO estimates, neurological disorders are responsible for 4.5%-11% of all illnesses including low or high-income economies. This is far higher as compared to the number of respiratory ailments, gastrointestinal disorders, or cancers, and the burden is expected to increase further over the coming years.
However, the high cost of this treatment procedure may hamper the Apraxia Market growth during the corresponding period.
