Global Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) Market:
Global Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) market estimated to be valued US$ XX Mn in 2017 and poised to grow at CAGR of XX% over 2017-2023. Market for Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy projected to reach US$ XX Mn by 2023. Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is developed for the treatment of gall and kidney stones. Extracorporeal shock wave therapy has been used to treat rise in number of musculoskeletal conditions, like rotator cuff tendinitis, tennis elbow, patellar tendinopathy, plantar fasciitis, bony non-unions and Achilles tendinopathy. Shock wave therapy devices are non-invasive treatment for the musculoskeletal pain and can be used frequently in urology, physiotherapy, sports medicine, veterinary medicine and orthopaedics. It is also called as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT). Abrupt, high amplitude mechanical energy pulses are generated with help of the electromagnetic coil to manage and reduce the pain in ESWT process. ESWT is an alternative for surgery and also helps in speedy recovery of patients who are suffering from various tendon, muscle and joint disorders.

Rise in prevalence of arthritis and musculoskeletal disorders are the critical driving factors for the growth of the ESWT market. Demand for advance technological treatment for pain management and non-invasive nature of the therapy is the prime factors expected to drive the growth of ESWT market over the forecast period. ESWT helps in metabolic stimulation and increased cellular activity of the body which plays a major role in the rising demand for ESWT devices in the market. As per the report given by the Population Reference Bureau, world’s population from 2016, is going to increase by 33% and estimated to reach 9.9 Bn by 2050 in which is mainly characterized by a large pool of geriatric population who are is highly prone to the wounds and injuries in turn creates a positive environment for the growth of global shock wave therapy devices market. On the other hand, lack of skilled professionals for the operation and handling of the device and high cost of the therapy may constrain the growth of the ESWT market over the forecast period.
