Brain Perfusion Scanners Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2016 – 2024

A brain perfusion scan is a type of brain test that provides information about brain function by demonstrating the amount of blood taken up by the brain cells and measure perfusion in the brain. Measuring perfusion is important for identification and treatment of stroke, other blood vessel diseases of the brain and brain tumors. Brain perfusion scan, require a radiotracer and nonradioactive substance for scanning of the brain. Factors such as, technological advancements in devices, increasing awareness about neurodegenerative diseases, the increasing incidence and prevalence of neurological disorders and growing incidence of brain injuries are driving the Brain perfusion scanners market. On the other hand, factors such as high cost of complex devices, shortage of trained professionals and concerns regarding the accuracy of diagnostic devices may hinder the growth of Brain perfusion scanners market. Some brain perfusion scan requires exposure you to radiation which increases the risk for cancer.

Brain Perfusion Scanners are used in different types of neurological indications such as Epilepsy, Dementia brain tumor, etc. According to WHO one billion peoples suffering from neurological disorders worldwide, 50 million suffer from epilepsy and 24 million from Alzheimer and 6.8 million people die every year as a result of neurological disorders. Brain perfusion takes only 60-75 second time to image the circulation in the brain. Some areas of the brain that are very active often show greater blood supply, so brain perfusion scanner also tracks these increase areas of the brain where blood supply is high and according to that a patient get treated.

Adhesive Bandages Market – Latest Innovations, Drivers, Restraints, Challenges and Forecast 2013 – 2019

Adhesive bandage, also known as sticking plaster, is a wound care dressing product that is utilized as small dressing. Adhesive bandages are applied on the patients who have not undergone serious accident but have minor abrasion (scratches) and cut on their body. The most widely utilized term for adhesive bandage by Americans is Band-Aid or Bandage; however, the British population terms them as plaster. Adhesive bandage help protect the cut or abrasion from bacteria, damage, friction and dirt and thus, results in quick healing process of the wound. It also helps hold the skin’s two cut ends together and hence fasten the healing process.

Adhesive bandage is covered with plastic, woven fabric or latex strip, which possesses the property of adhesion. A medicated absorbent pad with antiseptic solution is also present in an adhesive bandage. Some adhesive bandages contain thin and porous polymer coating on the medicated adsorbent pad that helps in sticking them to the wound. These adhesive bandages are applied in such as way that medicated adsorbent pad covers the wound (cut or abrasion), and the fabric of the bandage sticks to the nearby skin, to restrict the entry of germs and dirt into the wound.

Adhesive bandages can be segmented as: special bandages, transdermal patches and butterfly stitches. Special bandages are utilized by the people who are engaged in food prep work. They are blue colored waterproof bandages with strong adhesive property that resist their fall in food while manufacturing them. Transdermal patches are the adhesive bandages that help deliver medication through the skin and not protecting wound. Butterfly stitches are thin adhesive strips that are applied to close small wounds.

Increasing number of recreational activities by all age group of population will drive the growth of adhesive bandages market. Recreational activities like trekking results in multiple cuts and abrasion on the body that require the need for application of adhesive bandages, and in turn augment the demand for the same. Also, rising incidences of cuts in kitchen while cooking food will further accenture the growth of adhesive bandages market. Aging population will also boost the growth of adhesive bandages market since elderly people are usually met with small accidents such as stair fall and others. This generates the need for the application of bandages on the wounds, caused due to aforementioned accidents, hence support the growth of adhesive bandages market. Launch of different variants of adhesive bandages such as butterfly stitches will also trigger the growth of adhesive bandages market.
