Global orthopedic bracing devices market is expected to register exponential growth over the forecast period due to rising geriatric population base, increasing prevalence rate of osteoarthritis, higher incidence rate of muscular injuries and increasing healthcare awareness. Moreover, increasing usage of braces in sports injuries and demand for osteoarthritis related orthopaedic surgery is expected to drive the growth of orthopaedic bracing devices market in coming seven years. Innovations in implants technologies and technical advancements in bracing devices such as data synchronization systems, advanced data sensors and customized implants will further provide lucrative growth opportunities to orthopaedic bracing devices market over the forecast period.
The orthopaedic bracing devices market is bifurcated on the basis of product, application and end-use. On the basis of product, the market is divided into seven segments such as knee bracing & support systems, spinal orthosis systems, upper extremity bracing & support systems, ankle bracing system, back soft good systems, wrist & hand braces and pain management devices & kits. Knee bracing and supports segment is expected to witness notable growth in future due to rising geriatric population base affected by osteoarthritis. Ankle and wrist bracing systems pose significant opportunities owing to rising prevalence rate of sports and occupational injuries. The orthopaedic bracing devices finds application in different areas such as joint reconstruction (hip replacement, elbow replacement, digits replacement and wrist replacement) and orthobiologics (stem cell therapy, bone growth & spinal stimulation and bone allograft). Orthobiologics segment is expected to gain significant market share in coming seven years due to increasing adoption of tissue engineering and stem cells technologies in orthopaedic surgeries. Rising demand for hip and knee replacement is expected to drive growth of joint reconstruction market in the forecast period. The market based on end use includes hospitals, orthopaedic clinics and other users such as gyms, sports academy, emergency centres, and trauma centres.
Geographically, the global orthopedic bracing devices market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia pacific, Latin America and MEA. North America held the largest market share as of 2014, owing to favourable government initiatives and high incidences of muscular diseases such as osteoarthritis. European market is expected to witness growth due to factors such as rising geriatric population base, and high number of sports injuries. The Asia pacific region is anticipated to witness significant market growth due to increasing healthcare expenditure, rising disposable income, untapped opportunities and supportive regulations of the government especially in the emerging economies of India and China. Increasing healthcare awareness and changing demographics of people in Brazil and Mexico may push the demand for orthopedic bracing devices in Latin American market in near future.
