The global market for Electrodes for Medical Devices is projected to reach US$2.4 billion by 2022, driven by the growing popularity of non-invasive instrumentation and measurement in clinical diagnosis; developments in electrode design; and growing diagnostic procedural volume in parallel to rising healthcare burden. Measuring bioelectric signals from the body''s surface through the skin represents the most easy, effective, safe, and virtually painless diagnostic procedure that encourages patient compliance with improved and accurate diagnostic outcomes. The market also stands to benefit from developments in stick-on-skin electrodes, disposable electrodes, and innovation in water based electrolyte paste, creams, gels that enhance the interface and reduce thermal noise between the electrodes and skin. The United States represents the largest market worldwide, supported by societal aging, superior healthcare infrastructure with advanced diagnostic technologies and supportive reimbursement policies. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing market led by factors such as rise of medical tourism and the resulting development of diagnostic care infrastructure for cardiology and neurology and changing lifestyles as a result of urbanization and the ensuing increase in nervous, muscular, ocular, cardiac, and other disorders that demand non-invasive testing.
