The global orthopedic braces and supports market size is projected to surpass USD 4.5 billion by 2027 and growing at a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period 2020 to 2027.
Factors such as the increasing prevalence of orthopedic diseases & disorders, continuous product commercialization, market availability & product affordability, rising number of sports & accident-related injuries, and growing public awareness related to preventive care are driving the growth of the orthopedic braces and supports market. However, the inability to accept bracing-mediated orthopedic treatment due to medical conditions, limited clinical evidence to support the therapeutic efficacy of orthopedic braces, and the high adoption of pain medications are expected to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period.
Demand for knee braces and supports among medical professionals and athletes is expected to result in the segment occupying the majority of the market share
The knee braces and supports market is estimated to have the largest market share by value. Growth of this segment can be attributed to the growing demand for knee braces & supports among medical professionals and athletes and favorable reimbursement scenario for knee braces in developed countries. Moreover, growing geriatric & obese population (which are at a higher risk of developing osteoarthritis and other knee-related conditions), and the increasing number of sports injuries is expected to drive the market growth.
Ligament injury is the largest application segment of the orthopedic braces and supports market
Orthopedic bracing and support products are used for the clinical management of ligament injuries such as anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament, lateral collateral ligament, and coronary ligament injuries. The large share of the ligament injury segment can be attributed to increasing public participation in sports & athletic activities (coupled with the rising incidence of sports-related injuries), rising number of accidents worldwide, and the growing availability of medical reimbursement for ligament injuries.
Hospitals & surgical centers accounted for the largest share of the orthopedic braces and supports market, by distribution channel, in 2019
In hospitals & surgical centers, orthopedic bracing and support products are used for the clinical management of orthopedic conditions (such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and fractures), preventive care, post-operative patient rehabilitation, osteoarthritis management, and maxillofacial procedures. The growth of the hospitals & surgical centers segment can be attributed to the growing number of orthopedic surgical procedures that require post-operative patient rehabilitation and the favorable reimbursement for customized braces and supports (coupled with the increasing availability of insurance coverage for the surgical treatment of orthopedic disorders such as ligament injury, bone deformity, scoliosis, and osteoporosis) across major countries.
Lower spine braces estimated to be the largest and fastest-growing market
Lower spine braces are estimated to be the largest and fastest-growing segment in the Orthopedic Braces And Supports Market. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the rising incidence of lower spine disorders and the growing number of hip & disc replacement surgeries (which utilize lower spine braces and supports for post-operative rehabilitation).
North America is estimated to be the largest market due to the continuous development and commercialization of novel orthopedic braces & support products, favorable reimbursements & insurance coverage for major orthopedic bracing procedures, supportive government regulations for product commercialization, and significant sports participation.
Asia Pacific likely to emerge as the largest Orthopedic Braces And Supports Market, globally
Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for orthopedic braces and supports during the forecast period. The Asia Pacific market is driven principally by the rising geriatric and obese population (coupled with the significant prevalence of orthopedic & diabetes-related diseases in this population segment), increasing GDP and healthcare expenditure in APAC countries, and growing public awareness. Furthermore, increasingly localized product manufacturing, favorable government regulations, and the focus of global product manufacturers on expanding their presence in APAC countries are aiding the market growth.
