The global pain management devices market will reach $3336.5m in 2014 according to new visiongain

LONDON, UK, 26th of June 2014: A new report by visiongain calculates that the global pain management devices market will reach $3336.5m in 2014 with revenues showing strong growth to 2024.
LONDON - July 9, 2014 - PRLog -- The pain management devices market ( has enjoyed something of a renaissance in the last decade, with technologies and applications being redefined and more sophisticated devices being introduced in the market. Devices are increasingly playing a crucial role in fighting chronic pain, especially for certain conditions where drugs are ineffective or pose unacceptable side effects. Pain management devices encompass neurostimulatory devices such as spinal cord stimulators, deep brain stimulators, microcurrent electrical neuromuscular stimulators, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulators. Also included in this sector are radiofrequency ablation devices, analgesia infusion pumps, and intradiscal electrothermal therapy.

Moses Akintomide-Akinwamide, a pharmaceutical and medical technology market analyst at Visiongain comments: “As healthcare expenditure increases globally, two key areas pose great challenges to healthcare providers: chronic diseases and ageing populations. Pain management devices are playing an increasingly more significant role in the care of elderly patients. The tolerance and dependence issues which are notoriously associated with pain relieving drugs such as opioids, and the safety issues surrounding some non-steriodals such as Cox-2 inhibitors have led to market withdrawals in recent years. These withdrawals and their effects have left a gap in the industry for pain management devices to capitalise on. The desire of healthcare bodies to boost their patient satisfaction levels will also drive growth in this market over the coming decade.”

The positive side effect profiles of most pain management devices compared with pain relieving drugs such as opioids is a major growth driver. These therapeutic devices can be developed to be tailored to an individual patient’s needs. “Neurostimulatory devices, for instance, are already being personalised with stimulation programmed to change dependent on the patient’s posture. Large biotechnology companies have shown interest in this field, with companies such as Medtronic, and St Jude Medical already establishing and marketing multiple successful pain management devices”, Moses added.

The economically developed countries in North America and Europe dominated the pain management devices market in 2013. Globally, the rising incidence of chronic conditions will be a major driver for growth in the pain management devices market over the next decade. Huge strides have been taken to understand the neurobiology of pain; with patients increasingly gaining access to a variety of new approaches to diagnosing the cause of pain, as well as new strategies for managing their condition. All of these factors will contribute to increased domestic demand for pain management devices and ultimately contribute to the growth of the pain management devices market.
