Orthopedic Braces Market Trends



  • Rising orthopedic injuries fuels market growth.


Rising orthopedic injuries are driving the market CAGR for orthopedic braces. Orthopedic injuries are the most prevalent reason for hospitalization due to accidents and other incidents. Sports injuries are expected to fuel demand for foot and ankle devices. Sports-related injuries are becoming more common as the number of sports activities increases. Athletes are focused on specific fitness-related activities such as cycling, jogging, and others where they are prone to ailments that lead to ligament injury. Plaster cast is more malleable and has a slower setting time than fibreglass in casting and splinting. It takes longer for the material to solidify after being applied and moulded. Plaster of Paris, for instance, produces less heat, minimizing patient discomfort and the danger of burns. Indoor athletes are at a high risk of ligament tear and will produce a significant demand for ankle braces. Athletes typically utilize orthopedic braces to protect themselves from additional harm during sports. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), around 25% of sports injuries involve the lower extremities, such as the foot and ankle. Furthermore, the rising number of accidents is a crucial element driving the market's expansion.
