Voice Prosthesis Devices Market Overview:


The Voice Prosthesis Devices Market is anticipated to reach USD 1,162.19 Million by 2030 at 6.20% CAGR during the forecast period 2022-2030. Voice prosthesis devices are supporting devices for patients who had undergone Laryngectomy or other surgical procedures which involve the removal of the larynx. Partial or complete removal of the larynx, an opening is created by the surgeons, which is called a trachea-esophageal puncture, and then the device is inserted into the puncture with the back end covering the food pipe. Since the Voice prosthesis is placed in the food pipe which contains yeast and bacteria, exposure to these microorganisms might affect the quality and life of the device, hence a thorough cleaning of the device is a must. Some cases might involve the growing of yeast onto the valve flap of the device which in turn affects the proper functioning of the flap. Such factors might lead to the leakage of fluid into the windpipe. 


However, the researches are carried out to bring a sustainable material and structure that require minimal maintenance. Some surgeons might recommend a combination of Voice prosthesis and HME(heat and moisture exchanger) which helps in filtering the virus and bacteria growth on the devices and enhances the overall speech quality. The increasing incidences of larynx cancer and oral cancers across the globe are stimulating the overall growth of the Voice prosthesis devices market.


COVID 19 Analysis:


The widespread of COVID infection has brought in public health emergency which has created long term effects on the overall growth of the Voice prosthesis devices market. The increasing volume of laryngectomy has shown that there were huge diagnostic delays and stage migration issues during the pandemic. On the other hand, the patients were guided to handle their devices and cleaning their devices through video calls. The patients were consulted about their discomfort and fears during the pandemic. 


The major players of the Voice Prosthesis market were highly utilizing strategies throughout the pandemic to expand their existence.


Voice Prosthesis Devices Market Dynamics:


Market drivers:


The indwelling type of Voice prosthesis devices require very minimal maintenance and have a higher lifetime as well. On the other hand, several types of research are carried out in the industry to alter the material type of the devices to make them more suitable for the patient’s immune system and researches related to the size of the device to make it more flexible and customized for the patients.


The air source is not disturbed by the device and also no additional devices are required for breathing. Moreover, over 90% of patients have restored the voice, unlike robotic sound. Such advantages of Voice prosthesis devices are driving the overall growth of the Voice prosthesis devices market.


Market opportunities:


In western countries, voice prosthesis devices are highly utilized by patients between 30 years and 50 years of age, owing to the increasing incidence of larynx cancer in such regions. On the other hand, the materials used to manufacture the Voice Prosthesis devices are made of silicone rubber, polyvinyl chloride, and other medical-grade materials, which ensures immunological rejection. Such factors present opportunities for the overall growth of the Voice prosthesis devices market.


The increasing acceptability of such devices among patients and in various regions of the globe is expected to further boost the Voice prosthesis market growth.


Market restraints:


The complications involved in the laryngectomy procedure such as loss of blood, wound infection, prolonged bleeding, anemia are hindering the overall Voice prosthesis Devices market growth. On the other hand, highly skilled surgeons are required to perform puncturing of the tracheoesophageal wall. The regions which lack skilled surgeons have led to the failure of surgery.


Infection or fungi colonization are the two most common problems faced by people using Voice prosthesis devices. Hence high maintenance, environmental effect on the device are some of the major factors to be considered while using the device. Such factors are hindering the overall growth of the Voice Prosthesis Device industry.


Market challenges:


The leakage of liquid into the device and the formation of biofilm on the device are considered the major challenge of the Voice prosthesis device industry. On the other hand, frequent failure of devices is also considered as the major challenge in the Voice prosthesis devices market. 


The high cost involved for the device and frequent clinical visits for the treatment of cancer and manage the device are affecting the overall quality of life for the patients. The average life of the prosthesis was between 3 to 6 months and it varies according to the patient’s treatment for cancer and other health complications. Such factors are considered as a major challenge for the Voice Prosthesis market growth. 


Cumulative growth analysis:


A Voice prosthesis is an artificial device inserted into the laryngectomy patient’s throat, exactly onto the opening created between the windpipe and food pipe. The device has a flap at its backside which protects food entering into lungs or into the device itself. The material of the prosthesis is generally made of silicon rubber which is of medical grade, or polyvinyl chloride. The stoma should be covered by the patient while talking. The major challenges involved in the voice prosthesis devices are the leakage of liquid through them; this leakage would create a biofilm on the valve. On the other hand, the patient’s cancer type and extent of treatment highly influences the life of the Voice prosthesis. 


To combat the challenges, recent advancements have been made in the industry, the inclusion of magnets in the device is effective in increasing the resistance of the valves, and materials such as silver oxide are used to reduce the biofilm formation in the Voice prosthesis. Such factors are expected to boost the Voice prosthesis devices' market value in the forecast period.


Value chain analysis:


The increasing incidences of laryngeal cancer and increasing usage of tobacco, smoking, and the increasing consumption of alcohol have increased the overall growth of the Voice prosthesis devices market. On the other hand, recent research by the American speech-language-hearing association has stated that there is over 3-9% of the US population is having voice disorders. Such factors have created lucrative growth opportunities for the Voice prosthesis devices market. Several developed countries have increased their overall investment in hospital infrastructure and medical services. Moreover, the increased investments have led to emerging technologies in the Voice prosthesis industry. These factors are expected to inflate the Voice prosthesis market size in the forecast period.


Compared to non-indwelling devices, indwelling devices are considered to possess lucrative growth opportunities for the voice prosthesis industry. The flanges of the non-indwelling devices are sturdier and are found to have a long life when compared with the non-indwelling device. Additionally, there are a few risks such as physical injuries while inserting the device without other’s help. In addition to that, the Blom- singer valve is considered more effective than other devices as the device for voice restoration.
