Market Overview

The Carpal Tunnel Release Systems market studied is anticipated to grow with a CAGR of nearly 4.9%, during the forecast period.

Certain factors that are driving the market growth include Increasing prevalence of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) and lower procedure costs and improved medical reimbursement coverage for CT surgeries.

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a collection of characteristic symptoms and signs that occurs following compression of the median nerve within the carpal tunnel. Usual symptoms include numbness, paresthesias, and pain in the median nerve distribution. These symptoms may or may not be accompanied by objective changes in sensation and strength of median-innervated structures in the hand.

According an article published by the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common entrapment neuropathy, which affected approximately 3 to 6% of adults in the general population in the last decade, in the United States. Although the cause is not usually determined, it can include trauma, repetitive maneuvers, certain diseases, and pregnancy.

Overall, the rising prevalence of this syndrome is expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period across the globe.

Scope of the Report

Carpal tunnel release is a surgery used to treat and potentially heal the painful condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome. A proper diagnosis of carpal tunnel syndrome is the primary reason to have a carpal tunnel surgery. Carpal tunnel release is generally an outpatient procedure, which means that one can go home the same day as the surgery if all goes well. There are two types of carpal tunnel release surgery i.e. open and endoscopic.

Key Market Trends

Ambulatory Surgical Centers show Lucrative Opportunity in the Global Carpal Tunnel Release Systems Market

Ambulatory care or outpatient care is medical care that is provided on an outpatient basis. Throughout the past few decades, surgery has been increasingly prioritized by the global health community or governments even in low- and middle-income countries. As a result, the number of surgical procedures has risen significantly, in order to address the global disease burden including that of carpal tunnel syndrome, thus leading to a rise in utilization and adoption of carpal tunnel release systems.

Over the past few years, with the move to value-based care, hospitals and healthcare systems are facing extreme competition from ambulatory service sites, particularly those which offer physician office-based procedures, and ambulatory surgery. Gaining in popularity across the globe, ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) provide both operational and economic efficiencies, enabling ease of patient access, very competitive pricing, and increased opportunities for physician engagement. Thus, with the increasing number of carpal tunnel release surgeries, the studied market is expected to increase in the future.
