Orthopedic Splints Market 2
Orthopedic Splints Market 2

The orthopedic splints market is expected to register a considerable CAGR of around 8% over the period of 2021-2027. An orthopedic splint is an auxiliary device that secures and protects an injured limb while helping to heal and relieve pain. They are used both as an emergency measure to support injured limbs and as permanent care. These devices provide muscle and bone support to reduce swelling and pain. Sprints are considered non-circumferential devices. Sprints can be used for certain fractures, soft tissue sprains, tendon injuries, or injuries awaiting orthopedic treatment. The growing adoption of orthopedic splints can be attributed to the rising prevalence of various cases of bone-related diseases coupled with a rapidly growing geriatric population. According to the United Nations, the global population aged 60 years or over was numbered at 962 million in 2017 and is expected to reach nearly 2.1 billion by 2050. For instance, according to CDC, In 2017–2018, the age-adjusted prevalence of osteoporosis at either the femur neck or lumbar spine or both among adults aged 50 and over was 12.6% and was higher among women (19.6%) compared with men (4.4%). Thereby, boosting the orthopedic splints market globally. Furthermore, the orthopedic splints market is anticipated to grow on account of the growing prevalence of arthritis, a large number of ongoing research activities in this field and increasing cases of road accidents and muscle-skeletal conditions. However, some of the restraints in the market including the declined number of bone fractures and the high cost of orthopedic splints are impeding the growth of this market all over the world.

Essity AB, 3M Company, Ottobock SE & Co. KGaA, DeRoyal Industries Inc., Medi GmbH & Co. KG, Zimmer Biomet Holdings Inc., Stryker Corporation, Orthosys, United Medicare, and SAM Medical Products 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.
