MARKET DRIVERS

The growing patient population suffering from chronic pain is majorly propelling the pain management devices market growth.

An estimated one person in every five people, or approximately 1.5 billion adults worldwide, is suffering from chronic pain. As per the statistics published by the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), an estimated 50 million adults or 20.4% of the adult population in the U.S., suffer from chronic pain. According to the data published by the European Pain Federation, an estimated 100 million people in the European region are suffering from chronic pain. The incidence of chronic pain can be seen more in women compared to men. As per the data published by the American Academy of Pain Medicine, the incidence of chronic pain conditions such as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, and chronic fatigue syndrome is high among women compared to men. The patient count suffering from chronic pain has gradually grown over the last few years. The demand for non-pharmacological pain management options such as pain management devices has grown significantly in recent years due to the increasing awareness among people regarding the risks associated with the long-term use of opioids and other pain medications.

The growing demand for minimally invasive surgeries is further fuelling the pain management devices market growth.

The usage of pain management devices in minimally invasive surgeries offers improved patient outcomes and satisfaction. Patient-controlled analgesia (PCA) pumps, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) units and peripheral nerve blocks are some of the most used pain management devices in minimally invasive surgeries. In recent years, the usage of pain management devices has also been promoted in minimally invasive surgeries by healthcare policies and regulations around limiting the usage of opioids and increasing the adoption of alternative pain management methods. For instance, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) in the U.S. included policies to promote the usage of alternative pain management options to reduce the usage of opioids for patients undergoing surgeries.

In addition, the rapid adoption of technological developments to develop new and advanced pain management devices such as neurostimulation devices, radiofrequency ablation devices, and others contributes to the growth of the pain management devices market. Factors such as increasing awareness among patients and healthcare providers regarding the benefits of pain management devices in developing and underdeveloped countries, favorable reimbursement policies for pain management devices in several countries, and increasing healthcare expenditure are propelling the growth of the pain management devices market. Owing to the growing adoption of remote patient monitoring, home healthcare and telemedicine, the demand for pain management devices is growing as these devices allow greater flexibility and convenience. The demand for pain management devices is further fuelled by the growing number of surgeries being performed worldwide, as these devices are effectively used in pain management procedures during and after the surgeries.

Furthermore, factors such as increasing demand for portable and wearable pain management devices, growing adoption of pain management devices in developing regions, rising usage of combination therapies and growing emphasis on patient-centric care are promoting the growth of the pain management devices market.

MARKET RESTRAINTS

The stringent regulatory environment for pain management devices is one of the key factors hampering the market growth.

Due to this, many manufacturers of pain management devices are hesitating to launch their products into the market considering the high costs involved with the development and approval process. The high costs of pain management devices are another notable factor limiting the adoption of these devices and hindering the market’s growth rate. Poor awareness levels regarding the benefits of pain management devices among patients and healthcare providers in many countries are another notable obstacle to the growth of the pain management devices market. Side effects associated with using pain management devices are limiting the adoption of these devices and showcasing a negative impact on the market growth. Unfavorable reimbursement policies for pain management devices are further impeding market growth. In addition, factors such as limited efficacy, the presence of alternative treatment methods, patient preferences, technical limitations and resistance from healthcare providers in some countries to adopt pain management devices are further inhibiting the market’s growth rate.

SEGMENTAL ANALYSIS

Global Pain Management Devices Market Analysis By Device Type

The neurostimulation devices segment held the major share of the global pain management devices market and is predicted to continue holding the leading share of the worldwide market during the forecast period. Spinal cord stimulators (SCS), deep brain stimulators (DBS), and sacral neurostimulators are some of the most used neurostimulation devices for pain management. The segment's growth is majorly driven by its ability to stimulate the spinal cord, deep brain, sacral nerve, vagus nerve, and respiratory electrical stimulation. Neurostimulation devices are more efficient than traditional methods of reducing pain, which is one of the key factors boosting the adoption of these devices and contributing to the growth of the segment. In addition, the increasing adoption of neurostimulation devices and the rising patient population suffering from chronic diseases are propelling segmental growth.

Due to their extensive usage in chronic pain management, the radiofrequency ablation devices segment is projected to grow in the years to come at the fastest rate as it prevents the flow of pain signals to the brain without affecting tissues. The growing adoption of radiofrequency ablation devices in cancer treatment procedures is majorly accelerating segmental growth.

The analgesic Infusion pumps segment is expected to witness a notable growth rate during the forecast period. The growing number of surgeries being performed worldwide is one of the key factors propelling the segmental growth. The benefits of analgesic infusion pumps such as infections, device malfunction, and over- or under-dosing of medication is another major factor promoting the growth rate of the segment.

Global Pain Management Devices Market Analysis By Application

The neuropathic pain segment is estimated to hold the largest share of the global pain management devices market during the forecast period. The rising usage of pain management devices such as spinal cord stimulators or peripheral nerve stimulators to treat neuropathic pain is majorly driving the growth of the segment. The growing need for effective pain management options including pain management devices for neuropathic pain is another notable attribute contributing to the segmental growth. During the forecast period, the neuropathic pain segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR.

The cancer pain segment is one of the most lucrative and is projected to witness a healthy CAGR in the coming years. Radiofrequency ablation devices play an essential role in the management of cancer pain. These devices act through high-temperature thermal therapy, which heating tissue to 100°C induces the coagulation of necrotic cells. The RFA device helps kill cancer cells, allowing effective pain relief.

The musculoskeletal pain segment is anticipated to hold a considerable share of the global market during the forecast period.
