Market Study on Hot and Cold Packs: High Preference for Gel Packs Being Witnessed

New York, Feb. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- As per this new industry analysis by Persistence Market Research, the Global Hot and Cold Packs Market was valued at US$ 974.7 million in 2021 and is expected to increase at a CAGR of 5.9% between 2022 and 2032.

Demand for hot and cold packs is increasing as non-surgical pain and injury treatment options for conditions such as arthritis become more popular. Joint stiffness and pain are the primary signs and symptoms of arthritis, and these usually worsen with age. Edema and pain in the joints are symptoms of arthritis. A reduction in motion, stiffness, and pain are possible signs of arthritis.

  • In 2021, the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) reported that 58.5 million Americans had arthritis.

Rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are the two most common types of arthritis. Due to wear and tear within the joint, osteoarthritis causes the cartilage in a joint to degrade. The ends of the bones are cushioned by the cartilage, which also almost eliminates friction during joint movement. Osteoarthritis pain can be significantly relieved with therapies such as hot and cold packs. Warm compresses or a long, hot shower help relieve joint stiffness. They relieve sore muscles and maintain joint lubrication. Heat therapy can be used to relax tight muscles and joints.

For edema and joint discomfort caused by inflammation, cold therapy is the best. A gel ice pack or bag of frozen vegetables wrapped in a towel provides quick relief to aching joints. Cold therapy reduces edema, inflammation, and pain caused by activity and arthritis, which is increasing the demand for hot and cold packs.

  • In April 2021, Battle Creek Equipment Co. in Fremont, ID introduced a new line of Stay-Put cold therapy packs designed to relieve both chronic and acute pain, reduce inflammation, and accelerate healing after an injury.
