Orthopedic Trauma Devices Market

Orthopedic trauma is a condition that includes injuries mainly affecting the human skeletal system thereby, limiting smooth mobility of the person affected and reduces quality of life. It includes the conditions ranging from simple fracture to severe life threatening injuries caused, due to accidents or other fatal incidences. Orthopedic trauma includes multiple broken bones across different parts of the body such as hand (humerus, radius, and ulna), leg (Femur, Tibia, and fibula), feet (Tarsals, Metatarsals, and Phalanges), shoulder (clavicle and scapula), and brain that involve extensive reconstructive surgery. Various equipment and devices play a key role in reconstructive surgeries such as screws, plate system, nail system, special implants (internal fixator devices), and external fixator devices. These devices are commonly made of titanium and stainless steel.

The global orthopedic trauma devices market was valued at US$ 4.9 billion in 2016 and is expected to witness a robust CAGR of 5.3% over the forecast period (2017–2025).
