U.S. hydrotherapy equipment market size

The adoption of hydrotherapy is increasing, which boosts the demand for hydrotherapy equipment. The equipment manufacturers are expanding their global presence and diversifying their product portfolio to cater to the rising demand. For instance, in June 2017, Jacuzzi acquired BathWraps and Hydropool Hot Tubs Inc., which helped Jacuzzi in diversifying its product portfolio and increasing global presence.

Some regions have set guidelines regarding the regulation and use of these equipment. For instance, in the U.S., the Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee (HICPAC) and CDC’s Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion provide guidelines regarding disinfection and cleaning practices to be followed while providing hydrotherapy for patients with burns, wounds, and other non-intact skin conditions.

The manufacturers have undertaken activities for the promotion of hydrotherapy, which, in turn, boosts their business. For instance, EWAC conducts workshops to provide training and education regarding hydrotherapy to increase the sales of its products.
