The global orthopedic orthotics market is expanding due to an increase in the number of neuromuscular and musculoskeletal disorders and hip fractures across the globe. The global orthopedic orthotics market was valued over US$ 3.4 Bn in 2017 and is projected to expand at a cumulative annual growth rate (CAGR) of over 5.5% from 2018 to 2026 to surpass a value of US$ 5.5 Bn by 2026. The market is expanding at a relatively higher growth rate owing to increasing digitization of pain management practices, high incidences of orthopedic surgery, occurrence of neuromuscular disorders among the geriatric population, increase in fractures in men and women, and rise in demand for surgery-free treatment procedures.
Orthopedic orthotics are administrative as well as clinical tools that help in improving operational efficiency of orthopedic surgery or fractures. They are widely used to control physical deformities or for the treatment of injured/malfunctioned parts of the body. They are also known as supportive of corrective devices. The main objectives of these products are to provide comfort to patients while performing daily functions, reduce pain, support an injury, and correct the shape of a particular body part. For instance, these devices help in body movements and alignment by supporting the ankle or foot or both.
Orthopedic orthotics aid patients suffering from bone disjunction, fractures, sport injuries, or any other serious accidental injury in order to improve overall operational efficiency as well as patient care. High prevalence and incidence rates of neuromuscular disorders and fractures and increase in the number of cases of osteoarthritis and orthopedic injuries among the global population have resulted in an increase in patient flow to private clinics and hospitals. These factors are projected to drive demand for global orthopedic orthotics in the near future. Moreover, the development of e-commerce platforms is estimated to fuel the expansion of the orthopedic orthotics market in the near future.
