Rising Preference of Electrical Pulse as opposed to Drug-based Intervention will Boost Growth of Bioelectric Medicine Market: Fact.MR

Increasing prevalence of cardiac diseases and neurological disorders is encouraging pharmaceutical players to discover bioelectric medicines

The global bioelectric medicine market is expected to exhibit a steady growth owing to the increasing demand for advanced electroceuticals. As per a study by Fact. MR, the bioelectric market is estimated to surpass a valuation of more than US$ 28.5 Bn through 2031.

A rising number of geriatric population is in need of bioelectric medicine. Aging population are often vulnerable to medical disorders such as depression, epilepsy, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and cardiac arrhythmias. These disorders usually demand advanced electroceutical treatment such as spinal cord stimulator, cardiac pacemakers, cochlear implants, and implantable cardioverter defibrillators.

According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 610,000 people die of heart attack and around 370 people die of coronary heart disease (CHD) in the United States.

This has resulted in increased demand for improved bioelectric medicine for treating chronic illnesses. Major players such as GlaxoSmithKline plc have invested in the bioelectric medicine industry whereas, organizations such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the United States have shown strong interest in the industry.

Drug Discovery Services Market - The expansion of drug discovery services can be attributed to an increase in research and development efforts and expenditures, as well as leading pharmaceutical companies' shift to outsourcing. The use of improved technology in the drug discovery process is also a major market growth factor. With stringent regulations in some regions on drug discovery services, high cost involved in the discovery of drug and development and usage of animals in testing are hampering the market growth.

Drug Delivery Systems Market - The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic will bolster medication delivery system chances. In the field of medication delivery systems, several advances have been accomplished. The introduction of three-dimensional printing is the most significant of them (3D-printing). 3D printing is a one-of-a-kind medication delivery prototyping method. It can readily overcome the challenges of delivering strong medicines, peptides, and multi-drugs that are less water soluble.

Ocular Drug Delivery Technology Market - In the global ocular drug delivery technology market, North America is likely to maintain hegemony. According to projections, the ocular drug delivery technology market will account for more than half of the whole market. Furthermore, the introduction of new formulation types and lower R&D expenses are expected to boost growth possibilities. During the projected period, the North American market is expected to grow by 1.4x according to Fact.MR research study.
