Newark, NJ, May 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per the report published by Fior Markets, the global cold pain therapy market is expected to grow from USD 2.65 million in 2020 to USD 3.80 million by 2028, at a CAGR of 4.6% during the forecast period 2021-2028

Certain factors are boosting the growth of the global cold pain therapy market. Some of them include a growing number of traumatic injuries resulting from mishaps, falls, road accidents, an increasing number of sports injuries, rising prevalence of orthopedic diseases and increasing awareness among the market consumer’s strategies. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), each year, 20 to 50 million people suffer injuries in road accidents or incur a disability due to injuries in the chest, head, arms, and legs. Increasing injuries related to sports also play a vital role in the rising demand for these products. The typical sports injuries are muscle sprains and strains, dislocated joints, tear of tendons and ligaments that hold the fractured bones and joints together, including the vertebrae.

Cold pain therapy can be applied in various ways, including coolant sprays, whirlpools, ice baths, ice packs, or ice massage. When used to treat injuries at the house, cold pain therapy refers to cold therapy with gel or ice packs usually kept in the freezer until needed. These remain one of the time-tested and most straightforward remedies for managing swelling and pain. The use of cold packs is most widely used on inflammations as a primary analgesic to relieving pain.

The increased geriatric population is a significant target population driving in the market. Countries such as China and Germany have a large geriatric population base. These factors are boosting the market's growth. This group of people is susceptible to joint disorders and arthritis, which is expected to increase the demand for cold pain therapy products. Moreover, a rising number of traumatic injuries resulting from road accidents, mishaps and falls are another major factor accelerating the market's cold pain therapy. The factors restraining the market growth are the clinical evidence for cold pain therapy medication and side effects due to cold pain therapies coupled with various discomforts also hampering the market's growth. Patches provide a wide range of advantages over traditional oral routes or parenteral as the drug delivery is convenient, simple, non-invasive, and painless. The increasing preference of patients for alternative therapies is likely to become a significant challenge for market growth.
