Hot and Cold Therapy Packs: Introduction
Hot and cold therapy packs are used for patients with bone and tissue-related disorders and diseases, and are used to reduce swelling, improve blood circulation, enhance muscle relaxation and provide comfort to patients suffering from pain caused due to injury or other causes. This type of therapy is non-invasive, highly effective, cost-effective, and considered among some of the easiest and safest modes of treatment to get relief. Heat therapy helps to dilate blood vessels, which results in increasing blood flow in the affected areas. This enables provision of adequate amounts of oxygen and required nutrients to the target area, which also helps to accelerate the healing process. Heat therapy can aid in reducing muscle spasms and offers pain relief. Heat therapy is ideally used to treat neuropathic pain, chronic spinal and neck pain, lower back pain, and muscular spasms. Cold therapy (cryotherapy) helps in healing damaged tissue by narrowing blood vessels, in what is known as the vasoconstriction process, which helps to lower the blood circulation process and numb the nerves. This helps to reduce muscle spasms, inflammation, and pain. Cold therapy is generally used to get relief from acute pain caused by injuries, including muscle-pull, runner’s knee, etc.
Global & US Hot and Cold Therapy Packs Market: Dynamics
The target market is expected to be majorly driven by factors such as increasing prevalence of chronic and acute musculoskeletal disorders, rising number of cases associated with accidents, trauma, and other mishaps, coupled with growing inclination towards non-addictive, non-invasive, and non-surgical pain-relief therapies. In 2016 for instance, as per a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 53 Mn individuals in the US suffered from arthritis or some other bone-related disorders and diseases caused due to minor injuries and high physical stress. In addition, members of the geriatric population are more vulnerable to musculoskeletal disorders and chronic illnesses. This coupled with increasing elderly population are among other major factors expected to augment demand for hot and cold therapy packs in the global market. In 2013 for instance, as per a published report by Population Division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs of the United Nations, the elderly population aged 60 years and above is projected to increase to over 2 Billion in 2050, from 841 Million in 2013.
In addition, hectic and unhealthy lifestyle, long or stressful working schedules, increasing stress levels, and others are expected to lead to increasing prevalence of pain and trauma related to neck, upper back and lower back, shoulders, and shoulder blades, collar bone, and spine. This is an additional factor projected to drive demand for hot and cold therapy packs for pain management. Additionally, increasing investments by major players in R&D activities to develop innovation and novel products is projected to augment market growth to a significant extent. Inclining economic growth, improving standards of living, increasing spending on personal healthcare and wellness, rising prevalence of obesity, arthritis, and osteoporosis are among other factors expected to boost growth of the global hot and cold therapy packs market. Increasing number of sport-related injuries and rising demand for portable packs for instant relief and treatment in the arena of sports activities is another factor projected to fuel growth of the global hot and cold therapy packs market.
However, easy availability of other substitutes and treatments such as reusable packs and herbal packs, massages, heat sprays, balms, gels, vibratory massagers, and other remedies is a major factor that could challenge global market growth to a certain extent.
