Increasing investments in R&D by manufacturers and the growth rate of regulatory approvals for new electroceuticals/bioelectric medicines are other major factors contributing to the growth of the market. For instance, in December 2018, InterStim Smart Programmer was used with the InterStim System used for sacral neuromodulation therapy. Medtronic pioneered sacral neuromodulation and this product enhancement was expected to help the company strengthen its market foothold.

Stringent government rules and regulations for the development and manufacturing of medical devices including implantable cardioverter defibrillators, cardiac pacemakers, and neuromodulation devices could hinder the growth of the market. The devices undergo rigorous clinical trials before a PMA (premarket approval), which causes a significant rise in the costs incurred by the manufacturers. In addition, product recalls are a major challenge faced by manufacturers, which could adversely affect the market growth.

Product Insights

In 2021, the implantable cardioverter defibrillators segment held the largest revenue share of over 35.0% due to the high application of these products for arrhythmia. In addition, the increasing incidence of sudden cardiac arrests, a rising geriatric population, and advanced product development are expected to boost the market growth. The deep brain stimulators segment is expected to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to the escalating prevalence of Parkinson's disease and lifestyle-induced disorders such as obesity and depression.

According to the European Parkinson's Disease Association (EPDA), around 6.3 million patients are suffering from Parkinson’s worldwide, of which 1.2 million patients are located in Europe. The sacral nerve stimulators segment accounted for a significant revenue share in 2021 owing to product advancement and new product launches by companies. In August 2018, Nevro Corp. received an FDA approval for the new Senza II SNS System. This launch helped the company expand its product portfolio in the neuromodulation and pain treatment segments.
