The Americas dominates the global facial paralysis market owing to increasing cardiovascular disorders, which eventually leads to the increasing patient population. Additionally, increasing cardiovascular disorder rate is likely to enhance the growth of facial paralysis in the North American region. According to the American Heart Association, 31% of the deaths in the U.S. were due to cardiovascular disorders. Similarly, in 2015, around USD 3.2 trillion were spend in healthcare expenditure in the U.S according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. Similarly, in 2015, 1.3% of the U.S. adults were diagnosed with inflammation of facial nerves.
Europe accounts for the second largest market due to increasing cardiovascular disorders and increasing infections. Additionally, the increasing government support and improving healthcare infrastructure along with increasing facial inflammations are driving the growth of the facial paralysis market in Europe. For instance, Eurostat estimated that over 19.2% of the population in Europe was aged 65 and above. This increasing older population is likely to lead to the increasing patient population. These factors are likely to drive the growth of the facial paralysis market.
