- Key vendors in voice prosthesis devices market focus on longevity and cost-effectiveness of voice prosthesis, improving cancer care for laryngectomy key target
- Market to reach valuation of US$190 Mn by 2026-end, mortality of laryngeal cancers boosts market
ALBANY, N.Y., March 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Voice prosthesis devices are gaining clinical acceptance for speech rehabilitation in patients, especially in patients with laryngeal and hypopharyngeal cancer. Total laryngectomies in particular considerably affect the quality of life of patients, along with psychological distress. Medical technology companies have been offering indwelling voice prostheses for adults following the total laryngectomy to enable them to communicate verbally with high clinical outcomes. The drive for voice prosthesis devices market stems from this factor. Compared to other product segments, indwelling voice prostheses are technology-wise simpler and also are usually affordable for the patient population. These factors had helped the segment to occupy the major market share in 2017. Advancing cancer care for patients with head and neck cancers in North America and Europe is expanding the demand in the global voice prosthesis devices market.
Clocking CAGR of 4.5% during 2018 - 2026, the market is projected to reach worth of US$190 million, globally, by the end of 2026.
Key Findings of Voice Prosthesis Devices Market Study
Cancer Care Centers Spurs Sales
Growing treatment options for neck and head cancers has advanced care for these patients and help reduce the debilitating effects. A prominent case in point is the rise in demand for indwelling voice prostheses for young and older adults after total laryngectomies. Tertiary cancer care centers in a number of economies have seen the demand for these in improving the speech mechanics substantially. The marked morbidity and mortality of laryngeal cancers has spurred the demand for indwelling or non-indwelling voice prostheses in helping patients regain their speech. For instance, laryngeal cancers represent one-third of all neck and head cancers. Various end users are ambulatory surgical centers and specialty clinics.
In the U.S. alone, per a recent estimate published in the NCBI, around 13,000 laryngeal cancer patients, notably squamous cell cancers, are found every year. Smoking and especially marijuana smoking has been a key part of the etiology of the disease.
