The COVID-19 epidemic has disrupted the whole value chain in the epilepsy surgery sector, from raw material sourcing through manufacturing, packaging, and distribution. For the time being, the impact appears to be minor because several manufacturers have sufficient raw materials and end-product stock. If the pandemic continues and trade restrictions are tightened, the damage is expected to worsen.

Except in life-threatening situations, most regular surgical procedures were advised to be postponed. One such category was patients with drug-resistant epilepsy. According to a study conducted by three tertiary care epileptic centres in Spain and Italy, only 14 persons with epilepsy tested positive for the COVID-19 in August 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a number of consequences for people with epilepsy (PWE), including restrictions on in-person contact and neurophysiological tests. Members of the American Epilepsy Society were polled between April 30 and June 14, 2020, to better understand the epidemic's impact on PWE. In PWE with COVID-19, approximately 17% of respondents reported a rise in seizure frequency, whereas none reported an improvement. In this poll, the most important constraints experienced by PWE were a lack of access to healthcare facilities due to closure and limits on elective care. Approximately 44 percent of respondents noted epilepsy medication shortages.

A little piece of the brain is removed during resective surgery. The surgeon removes brain tissues from the area of the brain where seizures occur, which is frequently the location of a tumour, brain damage, or abnormality. It is the most commonly performed epilepsy surgery. Around 70% of persons who have temporal lobe surgery say that the procedure prevents their seizures; additionally, 20% report a reduction in the frequency of seizures. Despite receiving an acceptable dose of antiepileptic medication for one year, epilepsy surgery is recommended in 30% to 40% of individuals with refractory seizure disorders.

LITT is a minimally invasive treatment for drug-resistant epilepsy or seizures that do not respond to medication. LITT may help certain people who have focal seizures that originate in a single area of the brain. LITT surgery typically takes three to four hours. The development of MRI-guided LITT systems for the ablation of neurological soft tissue.

For surgical therapy of epilepsy, lesinectomy, repeated subpial transections, hemispherectomy and hemispherectomy, corpus callosotomy, stereotactic radiosurgery, and other treatments are available. Another therapeutic option for epilepsy is the use of medical equipment such as neurostimulation device implantations.

End-user hospitals and clinics dominate the epilepsy surgery market. This share is mostly due to an increase in the number of people being diagnosed with epilepsy and having epilepsy surgical treatments. Patients frequently choose to be treated in a hospital because advanced and comprehensive therapies are accessible. Clinics are also medical care centres that treat people with epilepsy.. Europe, the Americas, and developing countries such as India, China, and Russia have the most hospitals giving treatment for this disease.

Specialized epilepsy centres provide normal care to those who have seizures or epilepsy, as well as thorough diagnosis and treatment services to people who have uncontrolled seizures. Patients of various ages can receive thorough therapy at the epilepsy facility. Medication, vagus nerve stimulation, and the ketogenic diet are among the treatment options available at speciality clinics to eliminate or lessen the frequency and intensity of seizures in children and adults.

Electroencephalograms, a medical test used to monitor the electrical activity of the brain, are performed in diagnostic and neurology centres to determine the severity of seizures. Patients are assisted with surgical operations by neurologists, neurosurgeons, radiologists, neuropsychologists, and other healthcare specialists.


The epilepsy surgery market is expected to develop significantly over the forecast period, owing to factors such as rapid technical advancements in device technology, improved medical facilities, and a rising patient pool in need of surgical treatment. The value chain analysis for the epilepsy surgery market includes four primary components, beginning with research and product development and progressing to product manufacturing, distribution, and marketing and sales.

High R&D investments are required for product development, which raises R&D spending. Furthermore, the product designs are complete, and the manufacturing process has begun. Some of the product development procedures used in component production are sometimes outsourced. Distribution is an essential component of any industry. Distribution in this sector includes intermediaries, direct selling, and others. Hospitals, clinics, ambulatory surgery centre, and specialized centre are the primary purchasers of the products.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of a good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to complete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports, we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and most accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brainstorming sessions to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through readily available information. In this process, we use various paid and unpaid databases to which our team has access and gather data through the same. This includes examining listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling, etc. Apart from this, our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various universities as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content-specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first-hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply sides of the industry to make sure we land an accurate judgment and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses, and observation of on-field participants. The below-mentioned chart should give a better understanding of part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of the primary research the data collected via secondary research and part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews with individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence center, our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real-time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but is not limited to getting rid of the many typos, duplication of numbers, or missing any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads, and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploaded on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
