Heat therapy, also known as thermotherapy, is a treatment in which heat is used to reduce inflammation, relieve pain, and promote healing in the body. Heat treatment can target specific body regions or promote overall relaxation and comfort. Heat treatment employs a variety of products, including packs, wraps, pads, patches, and others, to relieve pain and improve healing. Heat therapy can help with muscle spasms, strains, sprains, chronic & post-operative pain, menstrual cramps, arthritis, and fibromyalgia. The heat therapy market share has increased as the prevalence of chronic pain has increased. As per the WHO report, in June 2022, 570 million people experienced low back discomfort, and 222 million experienced neck pain. Besides, heat therapy aids in pain reduction, improved mobility, and faster healing times following soft tissue injury and fracture. Thus, the rise in sports injuries and fractures boosts the demand for heat therapy products. According to a John Hopkins Medicine article, 30 million people participate in organized sports in the United States yearly, resulting in more than 3.5 million sports injuries. In addition, heat therapy can be utilized after surgery to reduce pain and stiffness in the muscles and joints surrounding the operative site. This is especially beneficial for people who have had orthopedic procedures or surgery involving the muscles and joints. As a result, the increased number of international surgeries drives demand for heat therapy unit products. Rising patient awareness of the risks of skin burn, edema, rashes, and inflammation, as well as increased heart rate and rheumatoid arthritis, is reducing heat therapy use and limiting market sales of heat therapy devices. Along with the high cost of heat therapy devices and the availability of a wide range of pain management alternatives, this impedes the global market growth.
