Market Overview

The physiotherapy equipment market is expected to register a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period. It has witnessed impressive growth in recent years. The increasing incidences of the cardiovascular as well as neurological disorders have stimulated the demand for physiotherapy equipment across the world. According to WHO, cardiovascular diseases cause the death of nearly 17.9 million people every year globally which translates to 31% of all deaths. In the United States, approximately 84 million people suffer from some form of cardiovascular diseases, which causes around 2,200 deaths per day. On the other hand, neurological disorders contribute significantly to the global morbidity and mortality rate worldwide, with stroke a leading cause of death. Some of the factors, such as the rising prevalence of cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, and neurological diseases, coupled with the increasing elderly population enable this market to record an estimated CAGR of 7.2%.

The other factor leading to the growth of the market includes healthcare reforms and increasing quality of care in developing regions and an increase in demand for rehabilitation after surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation.

Scope of the Report

Physiotherapy encompasses various procedures which utilize therapeutic exercises and physical modalities and are aimed at the preservation, enhancement, or restoration of physical function impaired by disease, injury, or disability. The physiotherapy equipment market report covers medical devices, such as multi-exercise therapy units, heat therapy equipment, and laser therapy units, among others.

Key Market Trends

The Musculoskeletal Segment is Estimated to be Largest in Terms of Revenue Generated

The musculoskeletal segment was estimated to be the most profitable segment in terms of value and is expected to retain its position during the forecast period. Increase in the prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders due to the rising geriatric population and lifestyle diseases are primary drivers of the segment. As per the WHO estimates, more than 80% of the population is expected to suffer from musculoskeletal disorders during their lifetime. Furthermore, common musculoskeletal disorders like lower back pain are the most common reason for patients visiting physiotherapists. Neurology segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period, owing to the increasing prevalence of neurological disorders, raising awareness, rising geriatric population, and increasing disposable income.

Asia-Pacific to Record the Fastest Growth Rate

Asia-Pacific is projected to register the fastest growth rate among all the regional markets, due to the growing geriatric population, increasing quality of care, high unmet needs, and growing awareness. The countries, like China and Japan, are likely to fuel the demand for the physiotherapy equipment market.

North America is likely to retain its dominant position in the physiotherapy equipment market. Rising geriatric population, high standard of care, and favorable government initiatives are driving the market growth in this region. In addition, the European markets are also likely to expand gradually during the forecast period.

Competitive Landscape

Development of equipment with enhanced capabilities and partnerships with local distributors for geographical expansion are the key strategies of the market players. Furthermore, there is an ongoing trend of rapid consolidation with several major players being involved in merger and acquisition activities.
