Evolution from traditional cylinders to lightweight table top medical devices have also brought significant changes in the prevailing market trends.
Peripheral nerve injury is one of the common condition arising from trauma, accidents, or neuronal disease needing surgical treatment interventions depending upon the severity of the condition. Primarily peripheral nerve gets repaired on its own, however surgical interventions are employed for improved outcomes and faster functional recovery. According to the statistics mentioned by the leading player of nerve repair market AxoGen, Inc., in the year 2014, around 1.4 million Americans experienced nerve injury and 0.9 million people required surgical intervention.
The key factors responsible for the market penetration of stents utilized for treatment of peripheral vascular diseases are the rising prevalence of peripheral vascular disorders requiring immediate stent implant, growing patient pool of diabetes, and obesity. Increased consumption of junk food and prevalence smoking has also heightened the risk and incidence of stroke due to formation of atherosclerotic plaques with high calcification in peripheral blood vessels.
Patient monitoring devices studied for the scope of the report consists of various products and applications. Rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and obesity, increasing number of geriatric population suffering with respiratory diseases. Increasing number of surgical procedures performed and rising inclination towards healthcare monitoring devices and apps to maintain healthy lifestyle has resulted in the deep market penetration for the patient monitoring devices.
Percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) is a non-surgical procedure utilized to treat coronary artery disease. A balloon catheter and coronary stents are used to remove the plaque and treat narrowing of blood vessels. In a PCI procedure, a coronary guidewire is used to direct the balloon catheter to the site of plaque in the coronary artery. A balloon catheter is thereafter inserted into the coronary artery of the heart and inflated at the site of the plaque.
The intervertebral disc consists of an inner portion which is a jelly like material and an outer portion which is a strong fibrous material. Over the last 3 decades, several medical device manufacturers have invested in the research and development of artificial discs which have received stringent scrutiny for approval from the regulatory agencies globally. The risks associated with total disc replacement are stroke, bleeding, nerve damage and difficulty in breathing. The manufacturers are currently developing artificial discs using radiolucent materials.
Rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as osteoarthritis, spondylitis and osteoporosis etc. requiring effective bone alignment and support. Additionally the rising geriatric population with joint deformities and traumatic injuries will result in deep market penetration for the orthopedic orthotic devices. The limiting factors related to this market are the ineffective reimbursement policies deter the patients from availing orthotic devices for treatment and maintaining the orthotic devices such as cleaning, oiling etc. is a tedious job.
This report on global oxygen concentrators studies the market in terms of various types and applications. Rising prevalence of pulmonary complications such as asthma, bronchitis, COPD and emphysema. Rampant industrialization and urbanization has resulted in increasing air pollution and particulate matter. Preference for healthier lifestyle and technological advancement in the components of oxygen concentrators help in the market penetration of oxygen concentrators. The restraints of oxygen concentrators market is the maintenance cost is high and huge consumption of electricity.
Geothermal heat pumps are most suitable and advanced platform to transfer heat directly to/from the ground. Global geothermal heat pumps market is expected to witness significant growth on account of rising demand for cost-effective energy solutions for air conditioning and heating concern.
Diabetes is a chronic disease affecting around 415 million individual worldwide which is expected to 642 million by 2040. Individuals affected by diabetes need to take insulin for lifetime. Thus the development of insulin patch pump technology offers enhanced benefits over traditional multiple daily injection therapy.
