Increasing geriatric population and associated conditions

Favorable health care reforms in countries such as Japan, the US, China, and the UK have increased access to various diagnostic and treatment services. Moreover, elderly patients are prone to fractures. The geriatric population is also prone to orthopedic disease. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the senior population worldwide will grow from ~1 billion in 2019 to ~2.1 billion by 2050. Moreover, as per the US Census Bureau, in 2009, ~13% of the US population was aged 65 and over, and it is estimated that it will increase by 20% by 2030. A European Society of Cardiology study stated that ~7.6 million people over the age of 65 in Europe had atrial fibrillation in 2016; it is expected to increase by 89% to 14.4 million by 2060. Moreover, musculoskeletal disorders (MSKDs) are one of the major causes of morbidity in the elderly population. Epidemiological studies in India indicate that the community-based prevalence of MSKD is about 20%, with low back pain being the commonest.

The growing number of sports injuries will drive the orthopedic splints market

Athletes frequently suffer from injuries during sports activities. According to a study published by Stanford Children’s Health in 2020, an estimated 30 million children and teenagers take part in sports annually in the US. Besides, according to the estimates given by the institution, these organized sports watch around 3.5 million injuries each year in the US. According to a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine in 2015, the world is witnessing considerable growth in football participation, which is directly correlated to increased splints. Additionally, according to a study published by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS), during 2018−2019, soccer, wrestling, and tennis witnessed significant growth in participation by high school boys in the US.
