U.S. Pelvic Floor Electric Stimulator Market size

Pelvic floor electric stimulator provides neuromuscular electrical stimulation for strengthening pelvic floor muscles. It is delivered generally by anal or vaginal probes connected to an external pulse generator. The method of pelvic floor electric stimulation varies according to various parameters such as stimulus frequency (Hz), amplitude (mA) and stimulus intensity, number of treatment days in a week, length of each treatment session, location, and clinic or home settings.

Urinary incontinence is described as an involuntary leakage of urine. Women are twice more prone to urinary incontinence as compared to men and the prevalence of urinary incontinence increases with age. Increasing prevalence of urinary incontinence and growing geriatric population are few factors driving the market’s growth. Pelvic Floor Electric Stimulator (PFES), is therefore described as a non -invasive treatment of urinary incontinence.

According to the Medicare, Pelvic Floor Electric Stimulator (PEFS) with non-implantable electric stimulator is necessary and reasonable for treatment of urge and/ or stress urinary incontinence and non-implantable is reimbursed by the government in the U.S. The United Kingdom Continence Society has designed minimum standards for incontinence care. Thus, favorable reimbursement policies and awareness programs initiated by various organizations are few other factors increasing the demand of pelvic floor electric stimulator worldwide.

People suffering from chronic diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, diabetes mellitus, and prostate cancer, are more prone to urinary incontinence. For instance, according to the Parkinson’s disease Society of the United Kingdom, around 145,519 people aged above 20 years are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. According to the World Cancer Research Fund, prostate cancer is the second most common cancer across the globe. As per the British Diabetic Association, in the UK, around 3.8 million people are diagnosed with diabetes every year. Thus, increasing prevalence of above-mentioned diseases are driving market growth.

Application Insights

Based on application, the market is segmented into Urinary Incontinence (UI), neurodegenerative diseases and sexual dysfunction. In 2018, UI segment dominated the pelvic floor electric stimulator market owing to increasing prevalence of stress and urge incontinence & various product launches by key players in the market.
