Vagus Nerve Stimulators Market Dynamics

 

Vagus Nerve Stimulators Market Dynamics:

The vagus nerve stimulators market is experiencing an increase in product demand for a variety of reasons with one of the key reasons being the rising prevalence of neurological disorders. As per the data cited by the World Health Organization (WHO) (2022), over 50 million people across the globe suffer from epilepsy. The source further stated that the estimated proportion of the general population with active epilepsy (i.e. persistent seizures or that require treatment) at any given time is between 4 and 10 per 1000 people. Additionally, in another factsheet by the WHO, it was stated that approximately 264 million people suffer from depression globally. Neurological indications such as epilepsy and depression can be extremely debilitating for patients and are often become refractory to pharmacological treatments. Moreover, pharmacological treatments in such indications are often accompanied with severe side-effects.

 

Owing to these, an alternative approach such as vagus nerve stimulation has been a preferred mode of treatment in drug-resistant cases of depression, epilepsy as well as it is also being administered in combination with pharmacological treatments in order to provide synergistic effect to patients. Vagus nerve stimulation has been reported to provide positive results in terms of preventing seizures in epileptic patients. Additionally, many studies reported that patients who received vagus nerve stimulation for epilepsy, showed clinical improvement with depression unrelated to the effect of the VNS on their seizures with nearly  40-50% improvement in patients with non-psychotic major depression.

 

Moreover, with more positive results being reported concerning the VNS therapy, more research is being conducted on different disease areas which may further expand the application of vagus nerve stimulation in coming years. For instance, several studies are ongoing in studying the effects of VNS on tinnitus, irritable bowel syndrome, and chronic pain among other indications. This further presents an opportunity for making significant headway in the VNS market in the near future.

 

However, procedure-related complications and high cost of these devices may be confining factors for the vagus nerve stimulators market growth.

 

Along with the factors mentioned above, the vagus nerve stimulators market witnessed a period of slow growth due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The lockdown implemented by various governments worldwide to curb the spread of the COVID-19 infection resulted in suspension of various surgeries and outpatient consultations across all medical specialties including specifically impacting elective procedures. This led to a considerable decrease in the demand for VNS devices as VNS procedures were classified under elective procedures. Furthermore, the implementation of global lockdown in varying degrees further affected the procurement and supply chain. However, the approval of various COVID-19 vaccines and the implementation of mass vaccination programs have paved the way for resumption of vagus nerve stimulators demand, thereby providing a positive growth environment for the vagus nerve stimulators market during the forecast period.

Vagus Nerve Stimulators Market Segment Analysis:

Vagus Nerve Stimulators Market by Product Type (Invasive VNS Devices and Non-Invasive VNS Devices), by Application (Migraine, Epilepsy, Depression, and Others), by End User (Hospitals, Specialty Clinics, and Others), and by Geography (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World).

 

In the product segment of the vagus nerve stimulators market, the non-invasive VNS devices category is expected to register a healthy CAGR in the vagus nerve stimulators market during the forecast period. This can be attributed to the advantages offered by these devices over their counterparts. Implantable VNS devices are often associated with adverse events encompassing both-the surgical procedure and the electrical stimulation itself. Therefore, the non-invasive VNS (nVNS) devices were developed with the aim to address the shortcomings associated with the invasive VNS devices.

 

Subsequently, non‐invasive VNS (nVNS) delivery options that eliminate the need for surgical implantation were developed. These VNS delivery systems help in avoiding surgery‐related adverse events such as infections and cardiac complications. Additionally, nVNS devices further help in addressing limitations of implantable VNS devices such as the continuous on−off stimulation cycle of implantable devices as the nVNS devices can be adjusted to balance tolerability and efficacy by end users. A few of the non-invasive vagus nerve stimulators that are currently available for commercial use are gammaCore, Sapphire by electroCore and Parasym device by Parasym Ltd.

 

Thus, all the above-listed factors are likely to propel the growth of the market for non-invasive VNS devices, ultimately driving the growth of the overall vagus nerve stimulators market.

North America is expected to dominate the overall Vagus Nerve Stimulators Market:

Among all the regions, North America is estimated to account for the largest share in the vagus nerve stimulators market. The key driving factors of the North America vagus nerve stimulators market are high prevalence of epilepsy, depression in the region, increasing disposable income, and rising investments and big collaborative expansions by key players in the region. Moreover, the conducive regulatory environment in the region are expected to establish the dominance of North America VNS market in the overall global landscape.

 

One of the key driving factors of the United States vagus nerve stimulators market is the interplay of various factors in the country. This domination is due to the increase in epileptic population, increasing prevalence of headache disorders such as migraine, and depression in the country. Furthermore, extensive research and development activities pertaining to product development and conducive regulatory environment further helps product manufacturers to generate more revenue from the country.

 

For instance, as per the data cited by the National Headache Association (2022), approximately 40 million American are living with migraine and headache disorders in the country. Therefore, the presence of large patient population suffering from migraine and headache disorders correlates to the presence of a potential patient population that may resort to using VNS devices as a treatment method, thus driving the product demand in the nation. Moreover, increasing epileptic population is also expected to drive the demand for vagus nerve stimulators in the country. For instance, as per the data provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2020), in 2015, about 3.4 million people across the nation were diagnosed with epilepsy of which 470,000 were children. As mentioned by the International League Against Epilepsy, one-third of epileptic patient population continue to have seizures despite being on anti-seizure medication. This presents another opportunity for VNS devices as they have been reported and approved for medical use for treating drug-resistant epilepsy.

 

Also, advanced product launches and commercialization agreements among the key companies are further expected to fuel the market. For instance, in August 2021, the US Food and Drug Administration approved drug-free rehabilitation system intended to treat moderate to severe upper extremity motor deficits associated with chronic ischemic stroke—a stroke caused by a blockage of blood flow to the brain with long-lasting symptoms the first-of-its kind VNS device- the MicroTransponder Vivistim Paired VNS System. Thus, the interplay of all the aforementioned factors are likely to fuel the market growth of vagus nerve stimulators in the United States during the forecast period

 

Besides United States, product development activities in Canada also provide supportive growth opportunities for the North America vagus nerve stimulators market. For instance, the Canadian Health regulatory body Health Canada authorized the Dolphin vagus nerve stimulator for emergency use in the treatment of COVID-19 induced acute respiratory distress syndrome.

 

Thus, all these activities point towards the presence of conducive growth environment in the North American region, ultimately influencing the market growth of this regional market.
