A featured report, titled "Disposable Pain Pumps Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019," from Transparency Market Research (TMR) offers a 360-degree view of the market. The report offers an extensive coverage of the key trends and their impact on the global disposable pain pumps market.
Pain pumps/intrathecal drug delivery is a technique of delivering medication, such as delivering an opioid directly to the spinal cord. A pain pump system consists of a small pump placed surgically under the abdominal skin. This pump delivers the drug using a catheter to the area around the spinal cord. These pumps are used when all other traditional methods have failed to provide relief to patients suffering from chronic pain. With the pain relief drug delivered directly to the spinal cord, the amount of dose required is much lower as compared to that of oral medication.
Disposable pain pumps can be programmed to release small doses of medication over a period of time. Furthermore, they can also be programmed to provide the pain relief medication in varying amount at different times of the day as per the needs of the patient. A pain pump's reservoir can be refilled using a syringe or can be removed permanently. By application, the disposable pain pumps market is segmented into pain management and spasticity management.
The global disposable pain pumps market is driven by the rising number of patients suffering from cancer pain and chronic pain. Other trends such as the significant reduction in the pain caused by failed back surgery syndrome and the rising prominence of reflex sympathetic dystrophy will also benefit the global disposable pain pumps market. In addition to this, the benefits associated with disposable pain pumps such as allowing patients the ability to perform daily activities with ease, the ease of device removal, and low medication dose are also driving the market.
According to region, the global disposable pain pumps market is segmented into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, and Rest of the World. Currently, the global disposable pain pumps market is led by Europe and North America due to favorable trends in guidelines and protocols, clinical practice, regulatory affairs, reimbursement, and the competitive framework. Emerging economies in Latin America, Asia, and the Middle East are expected to witness high growth due to the growing awareness among consumers regarding these procedures.
The leading players operating in the global disposable pain pumps market are Alaris Medical Systems, Advanced Infusion, McKinley Medical, Sorenson Medical, Stryker, and Baxter International. Several companies in the global disposable pain pumps market have recently received approvals from the FDA. These include systems such as Medtronic's SynchroMed(NYSE:R) II Programmable Pump and Flowonix Medical's Prometra drug delivery pump.
