The global orthopedic braces and supports market size is expected to reach USD 7.01 billion by 2030 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 7.0% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. Key factors propelling the market growth include the growing incidence of injury & trauma, the prevalence of chronic diseases such as rheumatoid and osteoarthritis and increasing technological advancements. For instance, in March 2023, Aspen Medical Products, a mobility and pain management solutions provider, partnered with NICE Recovery Systems (NICE) to launch integrated bracing and cold compression solutions for pain management and post-operative care to patients recovering from surgery or injury.

Osteoporosis is a leading cause of musculoskeletal and joint disorders among the older population, increasing the demand for orthopedic braces. Older individuals are prone to experiencing various musculoskeletal ailments, making them a key demographic driving the market demand for orthopedic braces and supports. For instance, according to the International Osteoporosis Foundation, annually, osteoporosis causes over 8.9 million fractures across the globe, resulting in an osteoporosis fracture every 3 seconds. Similarly, according to the same source, osteoporosis affects approximately 6.3% of men over the age of 50 and 21.2% of women over the age of 50 globally.

As people age, significant changes occur in their neuromuscular and skeletal systems, making them more susceptible to weak arthritis, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, and ligament tears. The older population is projected to grow significantly during the forecast period, further driving the demand for orthopedic braces and supports.

The growing prevalence of sport-related injuries is another significant factor contributing to pain, disability, or restricted movement, thereby driving the demand for orthopedic braces and supports. For instance, in Europe, sports injuries account for around 6.2 million people annually. Furthermore, in the U.S., it is projected that 30 million children and adolescents participate in youth sports; among them, 2 million individuals account for sports injuries.
