Market Dynamics

Growth of the global physiotherapy equipment market size is majorly driven by increase in prevalence of chronic diseases, rise in number of orthopedic surgeries, and increase in number of geriatric population. Increase in prevalence of chronic diseases such as musculoskeletal diseases, cardiopulmonary disorders and others is anticipated to drive the demand for physiotherapy. Thus, this factor is anticipated to boost the growth of physiotherapy equipment market. For instance, physiotherapy such as electrotherapy, cryotherapy, laser therapy, ultrasound therapy and others are used in different musculoskeletal diseases such as arthritis, ligament sprain, muscle sprain, bone fracture and others.

Thus, increase in prevalence of arthritis is expected to witness rise in demand for physiotherapy  and is anticipated to boost the growth of physiotherapy equipment market. For instance, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in November 2021, it was reported that, in the U.S, 24% of all adults, or 58.5 million people, have arthritis. In addition, according to published report World Health Organization (WHO) in July 2023, about 528 million people worldwide were living with osteoarthritis. 73% of people living with osteoarthritis are older than 55 years, and 60% are female. As per the same source, with a prevalence of 365 million, the knee is the most frequently affected joint, followed by the hip and the hand, over the globe.

Cardiorespiratory physiotherapy is an area of physiotherapy that specializes in the prevention, rehabilitation, and compensation of clients with diseases and injuries in the heart and lungs. Thus, rise in prevalence of cardiorespiratory diseases such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, bronchitis and others is anticipated to fuel the demand for physiotherapy equipment and boost the growth of market.

For instance, in September 2022, the Forum of International Respiratory Societies (FIRS), report displayed the immense burden of these lung diseases. An estimated 200 million people have COPD, of which about 3.2 million die each year, making it the third-leading cause of death worldwide. Asthma is one of the most common non-communicable diseases globally affecting 262 million people. Thus, rise in prevalence of chronic diseases such as musculoskeletal diseases, cardiopulmonary disorders and others is expected to fuel the demand for physiotherapy. Therefore, this factor is anticipated to boost the growth of physiotherapy equipment market.

Increase in the number of orthopedic surgeries such as knee replacement, joint replacement and others is anticipated to boost the growth of the market. Physiotherapy treatment after joint replacement surgery helps to build strength, improve balance, and reduce the risk of falls. Cryotherapy, continuous passive motion (CPM), neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) and surface electromyographic (sEMG) are recommended for inclusion into rehabilitation protocols following arthroscopic knee surgery to assist with pain relief, recovery of muscle strength and knee function, which are all essential to accelerate recovery. Thus, this factor is anticipated to fuel the demand for physiotherapy equipment and boost the growth of the market.

For instance, according to report shared by American College of Rheumatology, in February 2023, approximately 790,000 total knee replacements and over 450,000 hip replacements are performed annually in the U.S. This number continues to grow as the population ages.

Moreover, rise in the number of geriatric populations is anticipated to increase the number of populations suffering from osteoarthritis. Thus, increase in the number of surgical procedures and demand for artificial joints is expected to fuel the growth of the physiotherapy equipment market. For instance, according to National Poll of Healthy Aging, in 2022, three in five adults of age group 50 years to 80 years (60%) reported that they have arthritis, with 30% reporting a diagnosis of osteoarthritis, that is, “wear and tear,” “bone-on-bone,” or degenerative arthritis. Less commonly reported types of arthritis were rheumatoid arthritis (8%), gout or pseudogout (7%), or another kind of arthritis (5%).

Moreover, in 2021, The Swedish Arthroplasty Register reported that around 46,777 population of age group 65 years to 74 years and around 58,020 population of 75 year to 84 years had undergone knee replacement surgery in Sweden. Thus, rise in prevalence of osteoarthritis in geriatric population is anticipated to increase the number of arthroplasty surgeries. Thus, this factor is anticipated to fuel the needs for physiotherapy in aging population and boost the growth of the market.

On the other hand, high cost of physiotherapy equipment is anticipated to hamper the growth of the market. For instance, Auto Therm 391 Shortwave Diathermy, a shortwave therapy device costs $8,783.40, Sonicator 740x Therapeutic Ultrasound therapy device costs $1,821.00. However, an unstable reimbursement scenario for physiotherapy, the shortage of skilled personnel, and the presence of alternative therapies such as acupuncture are the major factors that are expected to restrain the physiotherapy equipment market growth during the forecast period.
