Erectile Dysfunction (ED) Statistics & Industry Value

At The Premier Practice Accelerator, our two-day erectile dysfunction training course is specifically designed to meet popular patient needs and fill gaps in industry knowledge. After completing the course, you and your staff will be empowered with the insider information it takes to successfully treat ED, advertise your treatments, engage efficiently with patients, and grow your practice to new levels. 

But why exactly should you be interested in this practice area?

Let’s start with some fast facts:

  • According to research compiled by Johns Hopkins Medicine, it is predicted that by 2025 approximately 322 million men worldwide will suffer from erectile dysfunction. (This marks a drastic increase from 152 million men in 1995.)
  • It is estimated between 35% to 50% of adult men with diabetes have erectile dysfunction. [source]
  • The global erectile dysfunction treatment market is currently estimated at $3.7 billion, with a CAGR of 7.1 % over the next several years. [source]
  • The global shockwave therapy market is projected to reach $2.6 billion by 2025 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.1%. [source]

Through the years, ED has been addressed with lifestyle changes, vacuum devices like penis pumps, injectable and oral medications, and even surgery and penile implants. 

Today, however, many modern patients are in search of less invasive alternatives.

How can you get in on this growing market and stay ahead of the curve? On this page, you’ll learn more about ED treatment, ED causes, and innovative new technologies in the field of men’s sexual health and wellness.

ED Symptoms & Comorbidities

Symptoms of erectile dysfunction include the following recurring issues:

  • Difficulty getting an erection 
  • Difficulty keeping an erection 
  • Diminished sexual desire
  • Premature ejaculation or delayed ejaculation 
  • Performance anxiety and other sexual performance issues

A comorbidity is a medical condition or disease that occurs at the same time as another. Often, these simultaneous maladies have an impact on one another. They may worsen each other’s symptoms, but they can also provide valuable information for a patient’s diagnosis and treatment options.

Common erectile dysfunction comorbidities and risk factors include:

  • Diabetes 
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Sleep disorders
  • Priapism (penile inflammation)
  • Peyronie’s disease
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Androgen deficiency (Low-T) and other hormone abnormalities
  • Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and other prostate issues

Moreover, the risk of ED also increases with age. In young men, ED is less common but has been increasing in recent years. Additional psychological factors like stress and lifestyle factors like smoking, drinking too much alcohol, prescription medications such as SSRIs, and obesity also increase a patient’s risk of experiencing erectile dysfunction.

ED research from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases suggests healthier choices like regular exercise and proper management of these chronic health conditions can help. 

Sometimes, however, additional support is necessary to treat ED and restore erectile function. That’s where we come in!

Riding the Wave of New Shockwave Technology Applications

Treating erectile dysfunction with shockwave therapy is increasingly popular. Shockwave therapy (also known as extracorporeal shockwave therapy) was first used in 1971 to disintegrate kidney stones and gallstones. Today, it enables clinicians to treat a variety of circulatory conditions without the need for invasive surgery, medications, or shots. 

How does shockwave therapy work? It is designed to treat the cause of circulation issues rather than just the symptoms. When acoustic energy is directed into targeted tissue via shockwave technology, it creates micro-injuries that lead to the formation of new blood vessels. This process is known as angiogenesis. The increased circulatory response leads to better penile blood flow and more effective healing throughout the body, with results lasting upwards of two years.

It is recommended that ED patients undergo at least six treatments over the course of a few months. Fortunately, shockwave therapy sessions are quick and painless, requiring no anesthesia and no recovery time. Your patients can return to their usual activities immediately after treatment. For training purposes, the device we use for hands-on learning is the InPulsa Shockwave Therapy System 

Now it’s time to take your practice to the next level. Check out our upcoming events or contact us for more information!
