Electrotherapy Market Research, 2031

The global electrotherapy market size was valued at $979.0 million in 2021 and is projected to reach $1,636.4 million by 2031, registering a CAGR of 5.3% from 2022 to 2031. The application of electrical currents to the body to achieve therapeutic results is known as electrotherapy. By applying targeted and controlled electrical stimulation, electrotherapy is a potent treatment that many physiotherapists utilize to treat chronic pain, arthritis, musculoskeletal injuries, muscular atrophy, sports injuries, nerve discomfort, and nerve pain. Electrotherapy works by gently and non-invasively activating muscles & nerves through the skin's surface. Chronic pain is treated with a variety of electrotherapies, including interferential current (IC) therapy, therapeutic ultrasonography, electrical muscle stimulation, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation

Growth of the global electrotherapy market size is majorly driven by technological advancement in the healthcare sector, an increase in the number of electrotherapy industry, a rise in awareness regarding electrotherapy among people, and a rise in a number of chronic diseases such as orthopedic disorders & diabetes that raised the demand for their treatment through electrotherapy. Diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) is the most common complication of diabetes and is often associated with pain where electrotherapy is required. According to the International Diabetes Federation, in 2021, 90 million people were suffering from diabetes in South-East Asia, and 206 million people in Western Pacific. Moreover, a number of adults with diabetes is expected to reach 113 million by 2030 and 151 million by 2045 worldwide. Thus, a rise in a number of diabetes patients is anticipated to fuel the electrotherapy market growth. 

Electrotherapy Market

Advancement in the technology for electrotherapy is anticipated to fuel the growth of the market. For instance, in January 2022, Medtronic Plc., a global leader in healthcare technology, announced approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for an Intellis rechargeable neurostimulator and Vanta recharge-free neurostimulator for the treatment of chronic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). Moreover, in May 2022, Abbott Laboratories, a medical device manufacturing company, announced the approval of the U.S. FDA for its new Proclaim Plus spinal cord stimulation system, which provides tailored relief to multiple pain. This strategy helped the company to increase its sales.

Sports injury involves damage to part of the body due to sports, exercise, or athletic activities. A sports injury can be acute (sudden) or chronic (develop over time). Thus, electrotherapy is performed on athletes or players to treat pain due to sports injuries. Henceforth, the rise in the prevalence of sports injuries is anticipated to drive the demand for electrotherapy. Thus, this factor attributes to fueling the growth of the electrotherapy market. For instance, according to the National Safety Council (NSC), in 2021, exercise equipment-related injuries are approximately 409,000 the most in any category of sports and recreation

The rise in a number of orthopedic disorders such as osteoarthritis attributes to driving the demand for electrotherapy. Electrotherapy is used in knee osteoarthritis, anxiety, and insomnia management associated with chronic pain. Osteoarthritis is one of the most common forms of arthritis. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2019, it was reported that approximately 32.5 million (1 in 7 U.S. adults) people were diagnosed with osteoarthritis. Thus, to treat such orthopedic disorders, demand for electrotherapy is projected to rise, thereby strengthening the market growth.

On the other hand, alternative treatment option for pain and a lack of awareness regarding electrotherapy is anticipated to restrain the growth of the global electrotherapy market.
