Electrotherapy Market Trends- Increasing Number of Product Approvals Across the Globe

Rising prevalence of sports injuries, chronic conditions, and spinal injuries worldwide, increasing overall healthcare expenditure, and technological advancements in electrotherapy systems are some key factors expected to drive global market growth 

According to Emergen Research, the global electrotherapy market size was USD 950 million in 2020 and is expected to reach USD 1.30 billion in 2028 and register a steady CAGR of 3.9% during the forecast period, 2021-2028.

Market Dynamics:

Electrotherapy is the use of electric energy in medical treatment, especially for pain management. It includes various treatments that help to reduce pain, repair tissues, strengthen muscles, and improve pain management, thereby improving overall physical functioning. These systems usually consist of battery-powered devices that are connected to adhesive electrode pads through wires. A mild current is sent to the skin once the electrodes are attached and the device is turned on.

Various types of advanced electrotherapy devices that can be worn on the back, arm, or legs are available in the market. Transcutaneous Spinal Electro analgesia (TSE), Interferential Current Therapy (IC), Pulsed Short Wave Diathermy (PSWD), Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS), Percutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (PENS), and others are some commonly used electrotherapies. Factors such as rising prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular and neuromuscular diseases, and obesity, improving overall healthcare infrastructure, rapid advancements in interferential therapy, and ultrasound therapy are expected to drive global market revenue growth during the forecast period.  However, lack of awareness of the benefits of electrotherapy and rehabilitation therapy services in many developing countries, unavailability of sufficient funds to deploy advanced systems, and availability of better treatment alternatives are some key factors that can hamper the overall market growth to a certain extent during the forecast period.
