These products provide higher clinical efficacy and a faster patient recovery than alternative therapies such as pain relievers.

Industry segmentation in detail:

Ligament injury is the largest part of orthopedic and support applications.

Orthopedic strengthening and support products are used for the clinical management of ligament injuries such as the anterior cruciate ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, medial collateral ligament, lateral collateral ligament, and coronary ligament injuries. The large share of the ligament injury segment can be attributed to the increased public participation in sports and sports activities (along with the high rate of sports-related injuries), the rising number of accidents worldwide, and the increasing availability of medical compensation for ligament injuries.

Lower spine braces are estimated to be the largest and fastest growing market

Lower spine braces are estimated to be the largest and fastest growing segment of the orthopedic and support market. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the increased incidence of lower spine disorders and the increasing number of hip and disc replacement surgeries (which use lower spine braces and braces for rehabilitation after surgery).

North America is estimated to be the largest market due to the continuous development and marketing of new orthopedic and support products, favorable compensation and insurance coverage for major orthopedic procedures, government regulations supportive of product marketing, and significant sports participation.
