As per our analysis report, the global acute ischemic stroke treatment & diagnosis market size is projected to be growing at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2022 to 2027. The size of the market is predicted to value USD 3250 million by 2027 from USD 2350 million in 2022.

Acute Ischemic stroke can be defined as loss of function in certain parts of the brain due to a lack of blood supply to the brain.


The increasing prevalence of acute ischemic stroke drives the global acute ischemic stroke treatment & diagnosis market growth for diagnostic and surgical procedures to treat this disorder.

Less blood supply causes Ischemic acute stroke to the brain due to emboli, thrombus, or atherosclerosis taking place in cerebral arteries. World Health Organization (WHO) estimated that around 18 million people die every year due to heart diseases. Heart attacks and minor strokes, respectively, account for the highest number of deaths globally. 

87% of all strokes are ischemic strokes, the statistics made by the Centre for Disease Control. Also, the Prevention Stroke is one of the primary causes of long-term disability, occurring at a higher rate in the old age population. Around $34 billion is costing carried out by this disease. Moreover, stroke leads to 1 out of every 20 deaths. Higher rates of death associated with strokes emphasize an impending need for innovative drugs and diagnostic devices. There are two significant factors behind increasing the market's growth, such as large patient count and the rising population is at a higher rate of developing strokes in the future. Raising tobacco consumption and the incidents of diabetes in the increasing population are the essential factors that determine market growth. 

The National Institutes of Health has declared funding for the Stroke Preclinical Assessment Network (SPAN) to ensure that new individual treatments for acute ischemic stroke are systematically and successfully tested in rodents. The National Institutes of Health ask researchers to make the standards and practices applied in primary preclinical studies similar to those in clinical trials. The aim is to improve clinical trial results, as many drugs do not meet individual human trials.

Additionally, the market is growing due to the increasing number of surgical procedures in treating strokes due to increasing cerebral ischemia cases. The rising healthcare spending, the advanced technology used in surgeries, and the growing requirement for minimally persistent procedures are the critical factors for driving the global acute ischemic stroke diagnosis and treatment market. 

Furthermore, technical advances in surgery, aging, increased need for minimally invasive surgery, and rising medical costs are other key factors driving the acute ischemic stroke diagnosis and treatment market growth. The growing elderly population in both the developed and developing regions is one of the major market drivers, as older people are more vulnerable to stroke than younger demographics.


A significant challenge to developing the g global acute ischemic stroke treatment & diagnosis market is long-term testing of drugs after the onset of stroke and clinical trials involving the poor selection of patients for examination. Drug overuse and the high cost of surgery are likely to hinder the expansion of the global market. The lack of proper awareness in some developing nations of the world is a deterrent to market growth.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global acute ischemic stroke diagnosis & treatment market:

The sudden outburst of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has become a significant concern to the medical sector. The COVID-19 has created a negative impact on the ischemic stroke but not the stroke thrombectomy rate. The stroke mainly occurs in older people who are aged more than 60 years. Patients who tested COVID-19 upbeat show various neurological disorders, where ischemic stroke is common. Acute Ischemic Stroke is a life risk hurdle of COVID-19 infection. The treatment for ischemic stroke comprises different procedures of antiplatelet, coagulation, and thrombolytic therapies. Hospitalized patients can have neurological symptoms. Acute ischemic stroke is comparatively low, and the death concerned with it is considerably high. People diagnosed with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) have difficulty with coronavirus (COVID-19) infection. AIS is one of the developing neuro complications of COVID-19. The AIS is one of the most complicated neurological conditions in COVID patients. The result of the ischemic stroke in COVID patients considers disease criticality. The National Institute of Health Stroke Score (NIHSS) is used to forecast stroke results.
