Orthopedic Devices Market Size & Trends

The global orthopedic devices market size was estimated at USD 60.4 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2024 to 2030. The market is driven by a high incidence of orthopedic disorders, a growing aging population, an increasing degenerative bone disease, and a growing number of road accidents. The early onset of musculoskeletal disorders caused by sedentary routines and obesity is projected to fuel market growth.

U.S. Orthopedic Devices Market size and growth rate, 2024 - 2030

According to a report from the Lancet Rheumatology, the number of people worldwide with other musculoskeletal disorders increased by 123.4% between 1990 and 2020, from 221 million to 494 million. The report predicts that cases of these disorders will rise by 115% from 2020 to 2050, reaching an estimated 1,060 million cases by 2050.

The growing penetration of robots in orthopedic procedures is further supplementing the market growth. For instance, Stryker UK Limited reports that approximately 13,000 patients worldwide receive Mako robotic arm surgery every month. Advanced imaging and real-time feedback in robotics define precision in orthopedic surgery, resulting in less tissue disruption and faster recovery. Robotics are used to create personalized treatment plans that tailor procedures to individual anatomical characteristics, improving outcomes and reducing complications.

Moreover, the availability of advanced orthopedic devices and rapid development in healthcare infrastructure globally are anticipated to influence market growth positively. Increasing awareness and availability of minimally invasive surgical techniques, which offer multiple benefits, is another key driver of market growth. In addition, the rising number of people participating in sports and physical activities is directly linked to an increase in sports-related injuries that require medical attention, which is expected to further spur the market's development. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics and the National SAFE KIDS Campaign, over 3.5 million children aged 14 and under suffer injuries each year while playing sports or engaging in recreational activities. In addition, more than 775,000 children in the same age group are treated in emergency rooms for sports-related injuries annually.

The aging population is impelling the demand for orthopedic solutions globally. As people age, their bones tend to weaken due to excessive loss of bone mass, which is common between the ages of 25 and 54. After the age of 55, the loss of bone density becomes even more significant, thereby boosting market growth. According to the number of individuals aged 60 years or older will increase significantly by 2030. It is estimated that one in every six people globally will be in this age group. By 2050, this figure is expected to double to 2.1 billion.

Furthermore, increasing technological advancement in the field of orthopedic industry is escalating market growth. In November 2023, a team of researchers from UCLA School of Dentistry developed a new dental implant technology that uses ultraviolet (UV) light. The new technique involves exposing titanium implants to a one-minute UV light treatment. The treatment removes hydrocarbons, which significantly lowers the risk of post-treatment complications. Such advanced technologies will boost the adoption of dental implants, thereby supplementing market growth.

Market Concentration & Characteristics

The treatment of orthopedic conditions and injuries has been significantly transformed by recent advancements in the field of orthopedic devices. Furthermore, market players are investing in innovative technologies and procedures to keep up with the demand. For instance, the BONEZONE report states that in 2019 and 2020, the seven largest public orthopedic companies including DePuy Synthes, Stryker, and Zimmer Biomet collectively dedicated over USD 2.3 billion towards research and development. In addition, in June 2023, Acuitive Technologies launched a new tendon fixation device, Citrelock ACL.

Orthopedic Devices Market Concentration & Characteristics

The market is characterized by a high level of merger and acquisition (M&A) activity by the leading players, owing to several factors, including the desire to expand the business to cater to the growing demand for orthopedic devices and to maintain a competitive edge. In January 2024, Enovis acquired LimaCorporate S.p.A., a globally recognized orthopedic company. This strategic move enhances Enovis' standing in the global orthopedic reconstruction market by integrating Lima's proven surgical solutions and technologies into its portfolio.

Orthopedic devices must meet strict regulatory requirements to ensure that they meet high standards of quality, safety, and effectiveness before they can be introduced to the market. In the U.S., the FDA regulates orthopedic medical devices. There are two pathways for the competent authority to approve new orthopedic devices, the PMA or the 510(k) approval. Most industries use the 510(k) premarket notification because it does not require clinical trials. It can be used for devices that are considered substantially equivalent to an FDA-approved device. However, devices approved through this process are susceptible to recalls by the U.S. FDA.

Physical therapy and rehabilitation equipment can be considered as substitutes for orthopedic devices. Such equipment includes exercise bands, balance boards, and therapy balls that are specifically designed to enhance strength, flexibility, and range of motion. Technological advancements have further led to the development of wearable devices and mobile applications that guide users through customized rehabilitation programs, offering convenience and accessibility.

Several market players are expanding their business by entering new geographical regions to strengthen their market position and expand their product portfolio. In January 2024, Tynor Orthotics inaugurated an advanced manufacturing facility in Mohali, Punjab. Similarly, in June 2022, Smith+Nephew expanded its orthopedic business by opening a manufacturing unit in Malaysia. It was an investment of more than USD 100 million.
