The global pain management devices market size was valued at USD 3,922.9 Million in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 14,123.9 Million by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.6% during the forecast period (2018-2032).

Neurostimulation, electric stimulation, and infusion pumps are widely prescribed by the physicians to eradicate chronic pain. According to a study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in 2016, an estimated 20.4% of the U.S. population was suffering from chronic pain. Neuromodulation technology works on the modulation and alternation of nerve activity with the help of electrical stimulations.

Another pain management device, TENS (Transcutaneous Electric Nerve Stimulation) operates on the same technological concept, however, the major difference between TENS and spinal cord stimulation lies in the placement of devices. TENS are placed on the skin, while spinal cord stimulation devices are implanted in the patient body. Growing prevalence of chronic pain and neuropathic conditions are projected to boost the adoption of pain management devices by 2026. This is expected to augment the pain management devices market growth in the forthcoming years.

"Neuromodulation Devices Segment Are Anticipated to Drive the Growth of the Pain Management Devices Market"

In 2018, neuromodulation devices held a significant share in the global market. Enabled by this, the pain management devices market size is expected to spur between 2018 and 2026. Neuromodulation devices stimulate the nervous system with the help of electrical impulses. These devices include spinal cord stimulation, deep brain stimulation, dorsal ganglion stimulation, and others. Deep brain stimulation plays an extensive role in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, and dystonia.

Neuromodulation devices held an estimated 73.6% share in the global  market in 2018. Moreover, spinal cord stimulation amongst neuromodulation devices is expected to emerge as the fastest growing product type by 2026, aiding the pain management devices market share. Spinal cord stimulators are implanted in the body after a trial period and act as pain sensation inhibitors by stimulating low voltage electrical impulses in the nervous system.

Market Segmentation
