Erectile Dysfunction Devices Market Overview
Erectile dysfunction (ED) also known as impotence, is the inability to get an erection during sexual intercourse. It is a common medical condition in men. Though less common among the younger age group, erectile dysfunction affects 5%–10% of men under 40 years of age. A recent study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine revealed that one in four patients who sought medical help for erectile dysfunction are under the age of 40 years. Men undergoing cardiovascular or diabetes treatment are at higher risk of developing erectile dysfunction. The condition is strongly related to physical and psychological health. Treatment options include ED drugs, injectable, penile implants, surgery, and vacuum constriction devices. Usually medications such as Sildenafil, Tadalafil, Vardenafil, Avanafil, Alprostadil, and Udenafil are prescribed to treat erectile dysfunction. However, a very small percentage of men are aware of the prevalence of the condition and lower still are the number of people who opt to consult an urologist about it, mainly due to social stigma attached to it. As per a study conducted by the European Association of Urology, only 25% of the men estimated to be suffering from the condition seek medical treatment.
Wide availability of advanced technology devices drives growth of erectile dysfunction devices market
The global erectile dysfunction devices market can be analyzed on the basis of type of device and geography. On the basis of type of device, the global erectile dysfunction devices market is classified as vacuum pumps, penile implants (internal penile pump/inflated pump), vibrators, ED rings, and medicated urethral system (MUSE). Some of the major bands available in the market are Erektor, Viberect, SomaTherapy-ED, Encore, Bonro Medical, and Vacurect.
Vacuum pump, also known as Vacuum Erection device (VED), requires no medication or surgery and is also reimbursed in the U.S. According to the National Health Services, nine out of ten men using vacuum pumps are able to have sex regardless of the underlying cause of ED. Penile implants are medicated devices, which further requires research on its efficacy and safety.
Alternative treatment options hindering growth of erectile dysfunction devices market
Wide availability of effective OTC oral medication such as Viagra adversely impacts demand for erectile dysfunction devices. Also, lack of awareness about proper usage of these devices and pain associated with use, inhibit the growth of erectile dysfunction devices market. Besides, alternative treatment options such as low-intensity extracorporeal shockwave therapy, herbal medicines, and lifestyle changes also limit the demand for ED devices. New technologies such as tissue engineering and nanotechnology are being explored to develop more effective solutions for treatment of erectile dysfunction.
