Market Highlights

The Global Thumb Arthritis Market is expected to grow at an approximate CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period (2022-2030) and is projected to reach USD 657.7 Million by 2030.

In thumb arthritis, the cushion-like cartilage inside the CMC joint breaks down, causing the bones to rub against each other.
