Report Overview

The global sacral nerve stimulation market size was valued at USD 856.96 million in 2018 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 13.7% over the forecast period. Increasing cases of urge incontinence, such as Urinary Tract Infection (UTI), and rising number of patients suffering from Overactive Bladder (OAB) and fecal incontinence are some of the key factors propelling the market growth.

U.S. Sacral Nerve Stimulation (SNS) market size

Sacral nerve stimulation (SNS) is implanted as a device to control bladder functions by delivering controlled electrical impulses to the sacral nerves that modulate the neural pathways. It is an effective and safe treatment for patients suffering from fecal and urinary dysfunction. This treatment is recommended for patients who failed to get accurate result from therapy as well as medication.

According to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), urinary incontinence affects around 13 million adults, mostly women, in U.S. SNS leads to significant improvement in enhancing the quality of life for affected individuals. Increasing incidence of fecal incontinence is also projected to boost the SNS market growth. It is one of the most devastating condition as it can impact the quality of life of an individual and even lead to social isolation.

According to the international neuromodulation society, one of the studies in the U.K. shows most of the geriatric population are affected by fecal incontinence. It is mainly dependent on lower elementary tract and nervous system, such as stool volume, mental function, consistency, colonic, sphincter and rectal function. Thus, increasing number of patients suffering from fecal incontinence will help drive the demand for SNS devices.

Product Insights

External SNS is expected to be the fastest-growing segment over the forecast period owing to increasing incidence of OAB and fecal incontinence. External devices generate electrical impulses to the sacral nerves to control the bladder. For instance, Axonics modulation technologies have designed an external SNS device for patients suffering from OAB.

Implantable devices segment led the market in 2018 and will maintain its dominance throughout the estimated period owing to increasing cases of urinary incontinence, pelvic pain, and fecal incontinence. This device is implanted through a needle without surgery, to control bladder function. This treatment is effective for patients suffering from urge incontinence. Increasing number of patients suffering from UTI and urge continence is driving the segment growth.

Application Insights

Urinary and fecal incontinence is expected to be the fastest-growing as well as largest segment over the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the increasing number of patients suffering from UTI, OAB, and anal sphincter injuries. Fecal incontinence is due to the factor, such as obstetric trauma, fecal impaction, mainly in elder people, and iatrogenic injury from surgery.

Global Sacral Nerve Stimulation (SNS) market share

Increasing prevalence of urinary and fecal incontinence is driving the growth of this segment. Neuromodulation is an effective treatment for urinary frequency, urgency, and urge incontinence. Thus, rising number of patients suffering for pelvic pain and constipation is driving the SNS market.

Regional insights

North America led the market and is projected to expand further at a strong CAGR due to increasing awareness about the treatment, prevalence of OAB and urge incontinence and presence of well-established healthcare facilities in the region. Moreover, quick adoption of technologically advanced medical products, such as implantable SNS devices, is also expected to drive the market in this region. In addition, increasing reimbursements for innovations in devices and treatment procedures is positively affecting the growth of the regional sacral nerve stimulation market.

Asia Pacific is estimated to expand at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2026 due to increasing number of patients suffering from fecal incontinence and urinary incontinence. In addition, various awareness programs by the NGOs will help boost the product demand. Presence of a large number of key companies in economies, such as China and Japan, is also driving the market.
