The Growing Cryotherapy Market is driven by Rising Inclination Towards Painless Treatments

Cryotherapy involves the use of extremely cold temperatures to treat various medical conditions. It is gaining popularity due to its non-invasive nature and quick pain relief. Cryotherapy devices use cryogens such as liquid nitrogen, carbon dioxide or nitrous oxide to create temperatures below freezing point. Some common applications are whole body cryotherapy to relieve pain, localized cryotherapy for dermatological procedures and cryoablation to remove diseased tissues. The global cryotherapy market provides cost-effective solutions to manage chronic pain caused by musculoskeletal disorders, sports injuries or trauma. It is an attractive alternative to drugs and other invasive therapies that have potential side effects.

The global Cryotherapy Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 294.8 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 11% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market key trends:

One of the key trends in the cryotherapy market is the growing popularity of whole body cryotherapy. Exposing the entire body to sub-zero temperatures for a short time provides relief from chronic pains, improves blood circulation and boosts the immune system. The use of liquid nitrogen in cryochambers allows bringing the skin temperature down to -130 degree Celsius for 2-4 minutes. This non-medical aesthetic procedure is gaining acceptance in fitness centers, gyms and rehabilitation clinics looking to offer natural pain management options. With growing awareness about its multiple wellness benefits, the popularity of whole body cryotherapy is expected to drive significant growth of the overall cryotherapy market during the forecast period.
