Orthopedic Shoes Market
Orthopedic Shoes Market


The orthopedic shoes market is expected to register a CAGR of around 5% over the period of 2021-2027. Orthopedic shoes are specially designed for people with malformations in their feet and ankles. They support these muscles, tendons, and joints by correcting their alignment in the right way. This helps to reduce pain when walking or standing. These footwear products not only provide better support but also ensure overall foot health by preventing some problems that can lead to pain and discomfort. Orthopedic shoes have a variety of features such as adjustable buckles, velcro straps, and custom insoles to help alleviate foot problems such as hallux valgus, corn, and hammer toes. The growing adoption of Orthopedic Shoes can be attributed to the rising prevalence of various foot diseases such as wider toe boxes, and insoles for arch support coupled with a rapidly growing geriatric population will increase the demand for orthopedic therapeutics. According to the United Nations, the 60+ aged population was 962 million in 2017 which is more than twice that it was in 1980 at 382 million. The number of elderlies is expected to double again by 2050 and reach nearly 2.1 billion worldwide. Furthermore, the orthopedic shoe market is anticipated to grow on account of the growing awareness among individuals worldwide regarding the different orthopedic diseases, and rising cases of osteoarthritis. Thereby, boosting the orthopedic shoes market globally.

Dr. Comfort, Apex, New Balance, Vionic, Sole, Duna, Orthofeet, Piedro, Darco, and Drew Shoe Inc. are some of the key players in the market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate customers with hi-tech and innovative products/technologies.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Type, the flatfoot orthopedic shoe category accounted for the majority share in the market in 2020”

Based on type, the market is classified into flatfoot orthopedic shoes, cavus orthopedic shoes, calcaneal spur orthopedic shoes, varus orthopedic shoes, and valgus orthopedic shoes. Amongst types, the flatfoot orthopedic shoe category accounted for a significant share in the market owing to the rising demand from athletes for flat-footed shoes as they provide shock absorption, cushioning, and stability in high-stress areas, in order to improve walking or running abilities.

By providing better support across the entire shoe – from better cushioning under the heel to better arch support – orthopedic shoes can really help realign your foot.
