Menopausal women were majorly affected. It was established that 1 out of 3 women suffer from an osteoporotic fracture, which may often lead to surgery. Diabetic foot problems continue to remain one of the major health concerns for patients suffering from diabetes mellitus.

It is the fastest-growing chronic problem of diabetes mellitus, with more than 400 million individuals diagnosed globally as stated by the National Center for Biotechnology Information in 2019. Increasing cases of road accidents and sports injuries are further fueling the chances of surgeries.

As per the National Safety Council, the U.S. observed 2,841 deaths due to road accidents and nearly 4.6 million people suffer an injury every year. Road accidents often lead to shoulder, foot, or ankle surgeries. Moreover, as per the U.S. National Library of Medicine, the prevalence of diabetes mellitus is likely to grow in the future, which in turn will drive the small bone and joint orthopedic device market.

Type Insights

The shoulder reconstruction segment held the largest share of 34.2% in 2019. Shoulder reconstruction surgery is one of the most dependable treatment choices for degenerative shoulder joint disorders. As per CDC, by 2040 an estimated 78.4 million adults would be diagnosed with arthritis, which often leads to shoulder surgery. Hence, the rising target population would accentuate the need for shoulder replacement surgical procedures. Moreover, companies like Depuy Synthes have launched advanced shoulder reconstruction devices, such as GLOBAL UNITE Reverse Fracture Shoulder, intended to operate on patients suffering from rotator cuff disorder, which will support segment growth.

The foot & ankle segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR of 9.2% over the forecast period due to the rising number of Diabetic Foot Ulcers (DFUs) and sports injuries, which often lead to foot surgery. In 2017, as per the study by the Elite Collegiate Athletes, the incidence and epidemiology of sports injuries were the prominent cause of over 21% of foot and ankle injuries. These injuries include syndesmotic sprains, mid-foot injuries, medial ankle ligament sprains, lateral ankle ligament sprains, and first metatarsophalangeal joint injuries, which often call for surgery and thus support the market growth.

Application Insights

The hand segment held the largest share of over 56% in 2019. The segment is further subdivided into thumb, wrist, elbow, shoulder, and others. The growing geriatric population and rising cases of ailments like musculoskeletal disorders of the hand are the prime factors driving this segment. Moreover, M&A activities by major companies will fuel the segment growth. For example, Acumed, LLC acquired Bluefish Orthopedics, LLC in April 2019 to launch a new elbow arthroplasty technology (TEA) in the market.
