SPG Microstimulator System Market

SPG Microstimulator System Market: Global Industry Analysis 2012 - 2016 and Opportunity Assessment; 2017 – 2027

Market Overview

SPG Microstimulator System is indicated for pain relief in cluster headache (CH) and migraine in patients for whom standard treatment is not adequate or contraindicated. Cluster headaches are characterized by episodic unilateral pain in periorbital region. The disease mainly affects men and headache attacks last for few minutes to several hours. Stimulation of sphenopalatine ganglion (SPG) creates reversible inhibition of parasympathetic outflow, which in turn alleviates the severe pain generated in clusters. Traditional and most effective treatment for cluster headaches in injection of triptans, but over 20% patient eventually become resistant to triptans. SPG microstimulation systems provides excellent alternative for treatment in such patients. SPG microstimulator device is inserted under local anesthetic through small incision made in upper gum near second molar and neurotransmitter is positioned near sphenopalatine ganglion. Patient can activate the neurotransmitter device using external remote control. Pulsante System is the only SPG microstimulator system approved in the U.S. and European Union till now.

SPG Microstimulator System Market: Drivers and Restraints

Increasing prevalence of chronic cluster headache and rhinorrhea is the foremost factor driving the growth of global SPG microstimulator systems market over the forecast period. SPG microstimulator device is also being tested for use as an alternative to deep brain stimulator and occipital nerve stimulation devices. Successful completion of these studies may lead to replacement of deep brain stimulation devices which involves significant risks and even death. Moreover, expanded CE mark approval of SPG Microstimulator System for use in CH patients. But limited product approvals for SPG microstimulation systems in Europe and U.S. is the only factor limiting the growth of global SPG microstimulator systems market.

SPG Microstimulator System Market: Overview

Recent approval of Pulsante brings new hope to patients suffering from chronic cluster headache and sets standards in the neurostimulation therapy. The device is expected to gain rapid adoption by patients as it is minimally invasive procedure and involves less risk that other approaches used for neuromodulation. The global market for SPG microstimulation is expected to grow significantly with high single digit growth rate over the forecast period of 2017–2027.
