Vocal Fold Augmentation Products Market 

Vocal fold augmentation procedure is a commonly used surgical treatment for glottic insufficiency. In glottic insufficiency, the vocal folds do not close firmly or do not close fully, responsible for symptoms such as a weak or quiet voice, a breathy voice, or vocal fatigue. Vocal fold augmentation is a minimally invasive procedure that can be carried out in a clinic-based setting. Although vocal fold augmentation can be done in a variety of clinical settings, but is commonly used in the situations such as temporary correction for unilateral vocal fold paralysis, trial correction for glottal insufficiency (as a diagnostic measure), unilateral vocal fold paralysis, vocal fold paresis (unilateral and bilateral), permanent correction of vocal fold atrophy (as seen in presbyphonia), glottic insufficiency due to vocal fold scarring/soft tissue loss and adjunctive vocal fold augmentation after laryngeal framework surgery. A variety of injectable substances are available for vocal fold augmentation, and can be categorized into temporary that are 2–6 months and long-acting/permanent that are two years or more.


Rising Voice Problems and Increasing Approval for Vocal Fold Implants to Fuel Market

Vocal fold augmentation products market is growing due to increasing cases of voice problems globally. According to the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD), in 2016, 7.5 million or more people in U.S were suffering from voice problems. According to National Cancer Institute, estimated that there are about 13,150 new cases of laryngeal cancer and 3,710 number of deaths globally.

The increasing approval for vocal fold implants for lipoatrophy by a regulatory body is also a major driving factor for the global vocal fold augmentation products market. In January 2016, REGENSCIENTIFIC received CE-mark (CE 630688) for the Renu soft tissue (volumizing) implant for lipoatrophy, vocal fold insufficiency, and soft tissue augmentation. The CE-mark allows REGENSCIENTIFIC to sell the Renu product for these indications in 32 states of the European Union as well as in seven cooperating countries of the European Economic Area, and in other countries that recognize or require CE-mark.


Short Duration of Vocal Fold Augmentation to Hinder Market Progress

The short duration for some temporary vocal fold augmentation is the primary restraint to the market, and continuous procedures may cost a massive amount for vocal fold augmentation. The primary reason for this short duration is the usage of autologous collagen. The autologous collagen acts for a short span duration is expensive and consumes high time that is approximately three months from harvest to injection. Fat injection consume more time to harvest. Furthermore, the unpredictability of fat survival causes variability in the outcomes of fat injections, and the patient needs to undergo general anaesthesia before the procedure. Also, patients tend to suffer a prolonged postoperative dysphonia for up to a few weeks.


Calcium Hydroxylapatite Anticipated to Gain Notable Traction

By material type segment, calcium hydroxylapatite is expected to hold the largest market share over the period of the forecast as calcium hydroxylapatite has been developed in such a way that it is a safe and effective long-term option. Calcium hydroxylapatite is known by the trade name Radiesse Voice, which is currently an FDA approved substance for potentially long term vocal fold injection. Calcium hydroxylapatite is the primary mineral constituent of bone and teeth. It is highly biocompatible that means it is well accepted for implantation by the body and has the potential to perform for long-term and even permanent vocal fold augmentation. Injection augmentation of the vocal folds with calcium hydroxylapatite is best reserved for small and medium sized space between the vocal folds. Calcium hydroxyapatite’s effect typically lasts from one to two years, with an average of 18 months.


North America Vocal Fold Augmentation Products Market to Expand Robustly

DataM Intelligence segments the global vocal fold augmentation products market into – North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific (APAC), and the Middle East and Africa.

North America is forecasted to witness the highest growth by growing at the highest CAGR during the forecast period as the range of laryngeal cancer cases registered every year is quite high, followed by the excellent health awareness and per capita, spending on health makes this region a prominent shareholder for this market. However, in recent times in most parts of Europe, laryngeal cancer rate and laryngeal cancer mortality have increased considerably thus showing favourable trends over the last few decades in most Europe. The primary reason for this growth is high consumption rate of tobacco and, mostly for Mediterranean countries, alcohol consumption. This is leading to steady and fast growth in Europe's vocal fold augmentation products market. The steady growth of population affected with vocal fold augmentation and high per capita health spending in Europe are making this region a prime market spot.


Highly Consolidated Competitive Market with Few Prominent Contributors

The global cancer vaccines market is highly competitive. Key market players include – Merz Aesthetics, Inc., Boston Medical Products, Inc., APrevent Medical Inc., and REGENSCIENTIFIC.

Key players are highly investing in R&D for the advent of first-in-class vocal fold augmentation products to sustain and improve market competitiveness. Few competitors are also adopting inorganic growth strategies such as mergers & acquisitions to diversify product portfolio and enhance geographic footprint.
