DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/46gpn4/medical) has announced the addition of the "Medical Electrodes Market in Europe 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The Medical Electrodes market in Europe to grow at a CAGR of 8.32 percent over the period 2013-2018.
Electrodes are electrical conductors used in the manufacture of medical devices to detect chemical reactions through electrical impulses. The detection of electrical signals aid in the diagnosis of various diseases and disorders. Medical electrodes are regularly employed in various medical devices such as defibrillators, ECG, EEG, EMG, ENG, electrosurgical devices, fetal scalp monitors, nasopharyngeal devices, neurological devices, pacemakers, and TENS.
Disposable electrodes are designed to offer convenient one-time application. Also, disposable electrodes have lower electrical resistance and greater capacitance than reusable electrodes. Therefore, disposable medical electrodes are comparatively more hygienic and efficient. Hence, the market is witnessing a shift toward an increase in the use of disposable electrodes to avoid hospital-acquired infections. Also, disposable electrodes are cost-effective and flexible for use in patients
According to the report the growth of the Medical Electrodes market in Europe is driven by several factors. Reimbursement policy is one of the major factors driving the growth of the market in Europe. The growing aging population is another driver contributing toward an increase in the use of medical devices. This in turn is boosting the adoption of medical electrodes.
Further, the report states the growth of the Medical Electrodes market in Europe is curtailed by certain serious challenges. One of the main challenges in this market is the biocompatibility of electrodes. To meet international standards for medical electrodes, biocompatibility is a must.
