They come in adjustable sizes to fit all ages and collar heights to provide adequate traction levels.
Market key trends:
The global cervical traction collars market is witnessing significant growth owing to growing need for ergonomic medical devices for neck pain treatment. Neck pain is a common musculoskeletal problem affecting people of all age groups. Thus, demand for cervical traction collar is increasing as they provide pain relief and improve mobility of the neck. Furthermore, introduction of advanced technologically driven smart cervical traction collars integrated with heat therapy, TENS, and massage options is supporting market growth. Growing healthcare expenditure along with availability of various insurance coverage for traction therapy is further propelling the market. However, alternative pain management therapies such as chiropractic treatment and physiotherapy may hinder market growth.
Threat of new entrants: The threat of new entrants is low as substantial investment is required to establish manufacturing facilities and develop an extensive distribution network. Significant resources are also needed to achieve economies of scale and gain brand recognition in this competitive market.
Bargaining power of buyers: The bargaining power of buyers is high given the availability of substitutes and lack of differentiation between products of various manufacturers. Buyers can negotiate on price points which puts pressure on manufacturers.
Bargaining power of suppliers: As the manufacturing process requires expertise to develop specific components, the bargaining power of suppliers is moderate. However, established manufacturers have access to multiple component suppliers globally.
Threat of new substitutes: Alternative manual therapies like chiropractic treatment pose a moderate threat. However, wide acceptance and customized care offered by cervical traction collars make them a preferred choice for orthopedic patients.
Competitive rivalry: The global market is highly fragmented with the presence of several regional and global players. Players compete based on product features, quality, and pricing.
