PALM BEACH, Florida, Jan. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The global pain management devices market size is expected to reach USD 9.3 billion by 2026 registering a CAGR of 7.6%, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. The global prevalence of diabetes is expected to increase to 552 million by 2030. This is expected to increase product demand to manage chronic pain. Moreover, growing geriatric population base suffering from and susceptible to various diseases, including non-communicable diseases like cardiovascular disorders (CVDs), cancer, and diabetes, is likely to boost the demand. Preference for pain management devices over oral drugs and surgical interventions is also likely to be a high impact rendering driver for the market over the forecast period. According to the Grand View reports, the global market: is expected to witness strong growth as a result of various technological advancements in this field. These advancements include the advent of products such as electrode-based wearable automatic transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulators, which provide peripheral pain management in a 60-minute run cycle. Neurostimulation devices are more efficient than traditional methods as they show a sustained reduction in pain. Additionally, traditional therapy involves intake of medicines that could result in many adverse effects. Such equipment is widely used to manage neuropathic pain as spinal cord stimulators yield the best results. Moreover, these devices offer a customized level of stimulation depending on the activities undertaken by the patient in a day. Active Companies from around the market with current developments this week include: Electromedical Technologies Inc. (OTCPK: ELCQ), Merck & Co., Inc. (NYSE: MRK), GlaxoSmithKline plc (NYSE: GSK), Alphatec Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATEC), CHF Solutions (NASDAQ: CHFS).
Grand View also reported: "North America was the largest regional market in 2018 and held around half of the global revenue owing to the increased number of people affiliated with pain and thereby requiring management devices. The region is expected to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast years on account of presence of sophisticated healthcare infrastructure and rising adoption of advanced equipment by healthcare professionals and patients over conventional treatment therapies."

In the industry developments and happenings in the market this week include:
Merck & Co., Inc. (NYSE: MRK) known as MSD outside the United States and Canada and AstraZeneca, this week announced that a supplemental New Drug Application (sNDA) for LYNPARZA in combination with bevacizumab has been accepted and granted priority review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the maintenance treatment of women with advanced ovarian cancer whose disease showed a complete or partial response to first-line treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy and bevacizumab. A Prescription Drug User Fee Act (PDUFA) date is set for the second quarter of 2020.
The regulatory submission is based on the results from the pivotal Phase 3 PAOLA-1 trial, which were published in The New England Journal of Medicine. The trial compared LYNPARZA when added to standard-of-care (SoC) bevacizumab versus bevacizumab alone in women with advanced ovarian cancer in the first-line maintenance setting, regardless of their genetic biomarker status or outcome from previous surgery.
ViiV Healthcare, the global specialist HIV company majority owned by GlaxoSmithKline plc (NYSE: GSK), with Pfizer Inc. and Shionogi Limited as shareholders, today announced the submission of a marketing authorisation application (MAA) to the European Medicines Agency (EMA) seeking approval of fostemsavir, an investigational, first-in-class attachment inhibitor for the treatment of HIV-1 infection. This application seeks approval of fostemsavir, used in combination with other antiretrovirals, for the treatment of adults with multidrug resistant HIV-1 infection for whom it is otherwise not possible to construct a suppressive antiviral regimen due to resistance, intolerance or safety considerations.
