Nasal Splints Market Size & Trends

The global nasal splints market was estimated at USD 1.56 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2024 to 2030. The growing demand for nasal splints is attributed to their crucial application in healing from nose surgery to protect and maintain the nose shape. As a result, the rise in the number of nose surgeries conducted to rectify breathing problems, fix nose deformities, repair broken noses, and enhance nose appearance has boosted the demand for market growth.

U.S. Nasal Splints Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

The market is anticipated to grow due to an increasing number of accidents. These accidents often result in nose deformities, which can be corrected through nose surgery with the help of a nasal splint. According to the WHO article published in December 2023, 1.19 million deaths occur due to accidents and 20 to 50 million people suffer non-fatal damages. Hence, to correct the nose deformities, patients undergo nose surgery in which a nasal splint protects and maintains the nose shape. Hence, a growing prevalence of accidents boosts the nasal splints demand.

Rhinoplasty Procedures in North America, By Age Group, 2022 (%)

Post rhinoplasty, doctors often apply external nasal splints to reposition the nasal bone and reshape the cartilage. The use of nose splints is beneficial in reducing swelling and facilitating safe healfing of the nose. They keep the bone and cartilage in position, allowing them to heal in a new shape. The doctor-provided professional nose splint minimizes the risks of post-surgery complications, such as filler migration, malposition, and implant displacement. Wearing an external splint reminds the patient to be careful and keep their nose protected until it fully recovers. The increasing number of rhinoplasties in the younger and middle-aged population has increased the demand for nasal splints.

According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, rhinoplasty was the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery among men in the UK in 2022, accounting for 45% of all cosmetic procedures. In addition, there was an observed 67% increase in the number of rhinoplasty surgeries performed in 2022 compared to the previous year.

Mechanism Type Insights

Based on mechanism type, the intranasal segment led the market with the largest revenue share of 50.7% in 2023. Intranasal splints are intended to be used in sinus/nasal surgery to separate tissue or nasal structures disturbed by surgical trauma and prevent & separate bonding between mucosal surfaces in the nasal cavity during mesothelial cell regeneration. Furthermore, it helps contain minimal bleeding after surgery and is a supplement to aid in natural healing.

The external splints segment is expected to register at the fastest CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period. External nose splint comprises a bandage that covers the nose and two parts of plastic or metal running across the length to help the nose maintain its new shape externally. These devices are used in many nasal surgeries, as they keep swelling to a minimum. Hence, considering the benefits and easy application, external nasal splints are expected to witness a significant demand during the forecast period.

End-user Insights

Based on end-user, the outpatient facilities segment led the market with the largest revenue share of 53.9% in 2023. The increase in growth can be attributed to affordable diagnosis, treatment, and procedures that are available at lower costs. The low cost is due to standard procedures performed in less time requiring no hospital or a single night stay. Moreover, in 2022, according to the 2022 Procedural Stats Release, around 19% of reconstructive procedures were performed in the office and 25% in the free-standing ambulatory surgical facility.
