Pain Management and Surgical Devices Global Market estimated to be worth $8,824.7 million by 2025
According to International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP), pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage. Pain is classified as acute and chronic pain depending on how long the pain lasts. Acute pain occurs suddenly due to disease, injury, or inflammation and disappears when the cause of pain is no longer exists. Some of the causes of acute pain are trauma, surgery, broken bones, burns and cuts. Chronic pain is a persistent pain that usually lasts longer than six months. Some of the chronic pain conditions are migraine, cancer pain, neuropathic pain, musculoskeletal pain and arthritis pain. Pain is not always completely curable, but can be treated with pain management devices and surgery. The pain management devices such as spinal cord stimulators, peripheral nerve stimulators, TENS and NMES uses low electricity to block pain signals passing from nerve to brain and minimize the pain. Surgical procedures such as kyphoplasty, vertebroplasty and implant devices like spacers, screws and artificial discs are used to treat back pain caused by degenerative disc disease. The ablation procedures such as radiofrequency ablation and cryoablation are used to treat chronic pain and cancer pain by damaging pain causing nerve tissue.
According to IQ4I Analysis, pain management and surgical device global market is expected to grow at a high single digit CAGR to reach $8,824.7 million by 2025.
