The global orthopedic braces and supports market is expected to reach a value of USD 5.8 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. There is a growing demand for orthopedic support systems in order to improve the structural and functional features of skeletal and neuromuscular systems. These kinds of support systems restrict mobility to a particular direction, thereby, assisting the overall movement of a patient.
Osteoporosis is one of the leading causes of musculoskeletal disorders amongst the aging population. This generates the need for orthopedic support systems. Geriatric population plays a vital role in accelerating the demand for the products in the market. This population base exhibits highest incidence of musculoskeletal disorders. Aging leads to significant changes in the skeletal and neuromuscular systems, resulting in weak ligament, arthritis, and Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) tear. Currently, the geriatric population is growing at an unprecedented rate. As a result, the demand for orthopedic braces and supports is expected to grow in the near future.
Rising incidence of sport-related injuries has also become a leading cause for osteoarthritis among athletes. Health conscious people are continuously engaged in fitness-related activities. This might lead to muscle pain, which results in increased demand for braces & supports. Sometimes, athletic activities can also result in knee joint disorder, which facilitates rise in demand for knee braces.
