Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Cold Plasma Market size is poised to cross USD 21.06 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 18% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of cold plasma was over USD 2.89 Billion. The growth of the market can be attributed to surge in people affected by chronic wounds. The prevalence of chronic wounds is high among people suffering from various chronic disease. Therefore, with the growing prevalence of chronic disease, the risk of chronic wound increases. In 2022, the global prevalence of chronic wounds was forecast to be 1.51 to 2.21 per 1000 people. However, the frequency is anticipated to increase as populations around the world get older.  Therefore, the demand for cold plasma is estimated to increase, since it has proved to be effective in healing wounds.

Moreover, the prevalence of spread of infection in hospitals is also high. Hospital acquired infections (HAIs) are important issues that require urgent attention on a global scale. HAIs are a class of infections that a patient did not have prior to being admitted to the hospital. HAIs don't even exist during the latency period; instead, they appear within few hours of a patient admitting the hospital. The fifth most frequent type of illness related with healthcare is urinary tract infections (UTIs). At some point during their hospital stay, 12%–16% of adult inpatients would have an indwelling urinary catheter (IUC). For every day the IUC is present, a patient's chance of developing a catheter-associated urinary tract infection increases by 3%–7%. Hence, for the purpose of eliminating all varieties of harmful microorganisms, cold plasma may serve as a valuable tool.

Cold Plasma Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Growing Geriatric Population - According to the World Health Organization, one in six individuals on the planet would be 60 or older by 2030. By this point, there are projected to be 1.4 billion people over the age of 60, up from 1 billion in 2020. With the growing geriatric population, the prevalence of disease is also growing among them. They are more prevalent to various fungal infection such as skin and nail infection. Elderly adults have less blood flow and are exposed to the fungus for longer periods of time. The likelihood of getting the condition is further increased by a history of skin problems including psoriasis and athlete's foot. Hence, the demand for cold plasma therapy is more among them.
  • Rise in Prevalence of Cancer - In 2020, it is predicted that there would be 1,806,590 new cancer diagnoses in the United States, and 606,520 cancer-related deaths.
  • Surge in Number of People Suffering from Leg Ulcers - In the UK, venous leg ulcers are anticipated to afflict about 2 in 500 individuals by 2023.
  • Growth in Healthcare Expenditure - The amount spent on healthcare in the United States in 2021 increased by around 3%, reaching over USD 3 trillion, or roughly USD 12,913 per person.
  • Upsurge in Spread of Infection through Medical Equipment - Several bacterial isolates were found to be colonizing 88% of the medical equipment in Sub-Saharan Africa in 2020. Medical device-related infections are incredibly prevalent and challenging to cure. If exposed to bacteria, heart devices, pacemakers, wires, or defibrillators may become infected. Pain, redness, nauseousness, or sore-related discharge are all potential signs. Hence, the demand for cold plasma is estimated to increase in order to disinfect the equipment.


  • Requirement of High Capital Investment - Companies always evaluate the advantages of a technology in terms of their budget, investment, and the amount of time needed to recoup that expenditure. The equipment required for cold plasma coating technologies, such as vacuum equipment, is expensive and requires specialized operating conditions, such as low temperatures and controlled vacuum conditions, in order to function. As a result, cold plasma coating technologies require a significant investment in capital. Hence, this factor is estimated to hinder the growth of the market.
  • Lack of Commercialization of Cold Plasma
  • Side Effects of Cold Plasma on Humans
