U.S. MARKETS FOR NEUROSTIMULATION PRODUCTS

248 Pages | 61 Exhibits | 2006 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2010

OVERVIEW:
One of the most promising medical device markets to date is neurostimulation. This market--defined in this report as including several types of implantable neurostimulation systems (cochlear implants, cortical stimulators, deep brain stimulators, gastric nerve stimulators, spinal cord stimulators and vagus nerve stimulators)--has the ability to treat a very broad spectrum of debilitating diseases and disorders.

Neurostimulation currently treats several debilitating conditions, including: major treatment-resistant depression, epilepsy, gastroparesis, hearing loss, incontinence, chronic, untreatable pain, Parkinson's disease, essential tremor and dystonia. Emerging and exciting areas of development include the treatment of large-population diseases and disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, blindness, chronic migraines, morbid obesity, obsessive-compulsive disorder, paralysis, sleep apnea, stroke, and severe tinnitus, with the potential to expand to several other applications.

The neurostimulation market is poised for significant growth over the next decade, due to the aging population, growth in age-related neurological and other diseases and disorders, and strong need for effective, alternative therapies. Neurostimulation systems present a hopeful, life-improving (and life-saving) alternative to many patients who do not obtain relief from standard drug and surgical therapy. The market will continue to benefit from technological improvements, limited competition, high profit, high barriers to entry, long-term cost-effectiveness, and the increase in FDA-approved clinical trials for new applications.

In 2005, the total U.S. market for neurostimulation products (including cochlear implants) was estimated at $830 million. This market is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 17.1%, reaching more than $1.8 billion in 2010, with the potential to double or triple over the next decade.

This dynamic report from Medtech Insight includes analyses of products, technologies, current and forecast markets, competitors, and opportunities. Covered topics in this report include: cochlear implants, cortical stimulators, deep brain stimulators, gastric nerve stimulators, sacral nerve stimulators, spinal cord stimulators, vagus nerve stimulators and emerging technologies. Noninvasive stimulation technologies, such as magnetic stimulation therapy and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS), are also
