Spinal Cord Stimulation Devices Market Research, 2032

The global spinal cord stimulation devices market size was valued at $2.1 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $4.8 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 8.4% from 2023 to 2032. 

Spinal cord stimulation device is a type of medical device used to treat chronic pain by sending electrical impulses to the spinal cord. The device consists of a small electrical generator, a wire that is inserted into the spinal canal, and electrodes that are placed near the spinal cord. The generator is implanted under the skin, while the electrodes are placed in the epidural space near the spinal cord. The electrical impulses sent by the device interfere with the transmission of pain signals to the brain, providing relief for patients with chronic pain conditions such as failed back surgery syndrome, complex regional pain syndrome, and neuropathic pain.

Market dynamics

The major factors driving the spinal cord stimulation devices market growth are increase in prevalence of chronic pain, surge in aging population, technological advancements, and rise in awareness about spinal cord stimulation devices. Chronic pain is a common condition that affects millions of people worldwide. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) 2021, chronic pain affects 20% of the world's population. Thus, rise in prevalence of chronic pain is driving the demand for spinal cord stimulation devices as they serve as an effective treatment for this condition. 

Further, aging population is increasing globally, which is driving the demand for spinal cord stimulation devices. As people age, they are more likely to develop chronic pain and other conditions that require the use of spinal cord stimulation devices. In addition, aging can lead to degenerative changes in the spine, which can cause chronic pain and other spinal conditions.

Moreover, technological advancements in spinal cord stimulation devices are driving the growth of the market. New devices are being developed with advanced features such as wireless connectivity, longer battery life, and improved programming. These advancements are improving patient outcomes and increasing the adoption of spinal cord stimulation devices. Innovations in the medical device industry to launch advanced spinal cord stimulation devices to cater to the unmet medical needs of massive pool of target population are expected to create lucrative opportunities for the expansion of the spinal cord stimulation devices market.

Further, increase in awareness of spinal cord stimulation devices among patients and healthcare providers is expected to propel the market. Patients are becoming more aware of the benefits of these devices, and healthcare providers are recommending them as a viable treatment option for chronic pain and other spinal conditions. In addition, availability of favorable reimbursement policies is boosting the growth of the spinal cord stimulation devices market. Many governments and insurance companies are providing reimbursement for spinal cord stimulation devices, making them more affordable for patients. This is increasing the adoption of these devices and driving the growth of the market.

The spinal cord stimulation devices market forecast is expected to be driven by emerging markets, owing to availability of improved healthcare infrastructure, increase in unmet healthcare needs, rise in prevalence of chronic pain conditions such as degenerative disc disease (DDD), and diabetic neuropathy. Furthermore, the healthcare industry in emerging economies is developing at a significant rate, owing to rise in demand for enhanced healthcare services, significant investments by government to improve healthcare infrastructure, and development of the medical tourism industry in emerging countries. Moreover, governments in many countries are investing in healthcare infrastructure and promoting the adoption of spinal cord stimulation devices, which drives the market. 

The spinal cord stimulation devices market opportunity is not only limited to developed countries but is also being witnessed in the developing countries, such as China, Brazil, and India, which fuels the growth of the market. Factors such as rise in adoption of spinal cord stimulation devices, increase in awareness about chronic pain management, and surge in investments for development spinal cord stimulation devices further drive the growth of the market.

However, spinal cord stimulation devices are relatively expensive, which may limit their adoption among patients who cannot afford them or healthcare systems with limited budgets. Further, as with any surgical procedure, there is a risk of complications associated with the implantation of spinal cord stimulation devices. These complications can include infection, bleeding, and nerve damage.

The outbreak of COVID-19 has disrupted workflows in the healthcare sector around the world. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the healthcare industry, including the spinal cord stimulation devices market. Many hospitals and clinics postponed elective surgeries during the pandemic to free up resources for COVID-19 patients. This led to a decrease in the number of spinal cord stimulation device implantations, as these procedures are often elective. The pandemic led to reduction in patient visits to healthcare facilities owing to fear of infection or restrictions on non-essential services. This resulted in a decrease in the number of patients seeking spinal cord stimulation devices for chronic pain or other spinal conditions. Thus, COVID-19 negatively impacted the growth of the spinal cord stimulation devices market.
