The global medical electrodes market was worth US$ 688 Million in 2019. A medical electrode is a solid electronic conductor that is used to transfer the ionic current in the body into electric current for biological measurements. It comprises a metal part, lead and an electrode conducting paste and assists in the diagnosis of various nervous, ocular, cardiac and muscular disorders. Depending upon the anatomical location, multiple medical electrodes are used to receive bio-signals such as Electrocardiogram (ECG), electroencephalogram (EEG) and Electromyogram (EMG). Medical professionals highly prefer these electrodes as they are affordable, disposable, sterilizable and easy to administer. Owing to these benefits, they find wide application in various orthopedic, cardiovascular, cosmetic and neurosurgeries in hospitals, diagnostic centers and medical research institutions.
The increasing prevalence of degenerative neurological and cardiological diseases, such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, fibromyalgia and various brain disorders, is a key driving factor for the market growth. Furthermore, the rising geriatric population that has created a need for early diagnosis of ailments is also increasing the demand for medical electrodes globally. Also, increasing investments and government support through favorable policies is catalyzing the growth of the market. Owing to these factors, there has been a significant increase in research and development (R&D) to ensure easy access to quality healthcare for the vulnerable population and developing healthcare infrastructure while making it affordable for all. Moreover, technological developments such as advancements in nanotechnology have enabled miniaturization of these electrodes and facilitated their application for various minimally invasive surgeries. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global medical electrodes market to exhibit moderate growth during the next five years.
