The global pain management devices market was valued at US$ 4.11 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach over US$ 8.58 billion by 2030, poised to grow at a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period 2021 to 2030.
The pain management is a discipline of medicine that aims to alleviate the suffering of chronic pain patients. The acute pain has a quick onset of action, whereas chronic pain lasts longer and necessitates treatment. The pain management devices are medical devices used to treat various types of pain, including cancer pain, neuropathic pain, and musculoskeletal pain.
There are many different types of pain management devices in the market, such as analgesic infusion pumps, spinal cord stimulators, neurostimulation devices, and ablation devices. The increased geriatric population, the surge in consumer awareness about pain management devices, rise in prevalence of chronic pain, launch of innovative products, and increased research and development (R&D) are all driving the global pain management devices market growth during the forecast period.
The other factors that contribute to the pain management devices market growth includes an increase in the usage of pain management devices for the treatment of chronic pain, coupled with an increase in demand for pain management devices in emerging nations.
Due to the ageing population, there has been an increase in the use of pain management devices in recent years. The increased cancer incidences, the rising frequency of lifestyle-related diseases, and rising neuropathic disorders are only a few of the important drivers propelling the global pain management devices growth during the forecast period.
Furthermore, rising healthcare awareness and spending are driving the growth of pain management devices market. However, the adverse effects such as skin hypersensitivity and hyperpigmentation, as well as the availability of substitutes such as pain reliever drugs are limiting the growth of global pain management devices market.
The global pain management devices market would benefit from technological advancements in pain management devices. The high cost of manufacturing pain management devices, on the other hand could pose a threat to the growth of global pain management devices market during the forecast period.
The global pain management devices market has observed an increased in demand for spinal cord stimulation devices to treat chronic pain, refractory pain, and neuropathic pain. This factor will drive the market growth for pain management devices.
