Orthopedic devices are used to restore skeletal structure and joint movement after fractures, abnormal growth of bones, soft tissue damage or other deformities. These devices can be surgically implanted or externally attached through minimally invasive procedures and hence can be classified as internal and external fixation devices.
The global orthopedic devices market is estimated to account for US$ 60,052.8 Mn in terms of value by the end of 2027.
Global Orthopedic Devices Market: Drivers
Increasing prevalence of osteoarthritis is expected to propel growth of the global orthopedic devices market over the forecast period. For instance, according to the study ‘Osteoarthritis in Europe: Impact on health status, work productivity and use of pharmacotherapies in five European countries’ that examined the impact of peripheral joint osteoarthritis across five European countries, UK (43.6%), France, (25.6%), Germany, (15.2%), Spain, (8.4%), and Italy (7.1%) recorded high prevalence of peripheral joint osteoarthritis, with majority of cases aging 55-74 years.
Moreover, increasing geriatric population is also expected to aid in growth of the market. For instance, according to the World Health Organization, geriatric population is expected to reach 2 billion by 2050, up from 900 million in 2015.
North America held dominant position in the global orthopedic devices market in 2019, accounting for 39.4% share in terms of value, followed by Europe and Asia Pacific, respectively

Global Orthopedic Devices Market: Restraints
Issues with fittings and some side effects of wearing splints are expected to hinder growth of the market. Prefabricated stack splint and the dorsal aluminum splint may not fit well and often lead to skin irritation.
Moreover, high cost associated with fiber material is also expected to limit growth of the market. For instance, the cost of high quality braces can be around US$ 900.
