DUBLIN, June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/7sxj5b/electrodes_for) has announced the addition of the "Electrodes for Medical Devices Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.
Electrodes are devices that convert ionic potential into electrical potential which can be amplified to diagnose as well as treat several ailments and disorders. The electrodes used in medical devices facilitate the detection of chemical reactions derived from electrical signals obtained from muscle cells and neurons of the patients. In addition, few electrodes such as electrosurgical electrodes utilize the radiofrequency alternating current to perform minimally invasive surgical procedures.
The electrodes for medical devices across the globe are witnessing a shift in trends towards the use of single-use or disposable electrodes that are pre-gelled and self adhesive in nature. In addition, it has been observed that there is high demand for dry electrodes that further resolve the skin impedance of the patients. All these factors ensure enhanced growth and adoption of novel electrodes worldwide. In addition to these, other major contributors to growth of medical devices electrodes encompasses portability of devices and incorporation of nanotechnology in brain monitoring (nanotextured electrodes, etc) and mapping devices.
The global electrodes for medical devices are analyzed on the basis of diagnostic and therapeutic electrodes. The diagnostic electrodes segment is further categorized into five major sub segments namely electrocardiography (ECG) electrodes, electroencephalography (EEG) electrodes, electromyography (EMG) electrodes, electroretinography electrodes, fetal scalp electrodes and others.
Whereas, the therapeutic electrodes market is subcategorized into four major sub segments such as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulator (TENS) electrodes, pacemaker electrodes, defibrillator electrodes, electrosurgical electrodes and others. The other type of electrodes used in medical field includes intraocular retinal electrodes, esophageal electrodes and cortical electrodes apart from other commonly used electrodes. A detailed market analysis and forecast for these segments has been provided in this study, in terms of market revenue (USD million) for the period 2011 to 2019.
The report also provides the compounded annual growth rate (CAGR %) for each of the segments for the forecast period 2013 to 2019, while market size estimations have been made considering 2011 and 2012 as the base years.
