Growing prevalence of cancer is one of the major factors for the growth of the global Cryotherapy market.
As per the WHO statistics, cancer accounts for 13% of deaths globally every year, moreover, 70% increase in cancer incidences is anticipated over the next couple of decades and global geriatric population is anticipated to nearly double from 12% to 22% from 2015 to 2022.
Furthermore, increasing technological advancements in the cryotherapy treatment, increasing inclination towards the minimally invasive procedures, rise in applications of cryotherapy treatment such as cardiac conditions, pain management, skin disorders, beauty, wellness, fitness, etc. are likely to propel the growth of global Cryotherapy market.
However, high cost of the treatment, stringent safety guidelines, adverse effects associated with cryogenic gases, lack of complete knowledge regarding cryotherapy, the complexity of the cryotherapy mechanisms are likely to hinder the global Cryotherapy market.
