Global Orthotic Devices Market Expected to Reach $6.02 bn by 2026

The Global Orthotic Devices Market was valued at US$3.85 billion in the year 2018 and is anticipated to reach US$6.02 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.75%.

The Orthotic Devices Market is an extremely segmented industry that caters to an extensive genre of orthopedic patients who suffer from diabetes, obesity, arthritis, orthopedic and other musculoskeletal disorders. The orthotic devices are widely used for rehabilitation purposes after an injury. They are also involved in pain management and to prevent injuries by controlling the biomechanical alignment of the body and also correct abnormalities.

According to the NIH, the present world geriatric population aging 65 years or above is more than 9%. In the upcoming years, this number is said to increase over 16% which would be 1/6th of the total world population. The prevalence of morbidities such as diabetes, cardiovascular disorders, etc. among the geriatric population. Besides, aging also results in a reduction of bone density, gait, and posture-related problems and increases the risk of fragility related injuries.

The orthotic devices offer valiant support for alleviating the disorders.

The technology for developing orthotic devices had immensely improved considering the last decade of orthotic devices' history. Introduction of precision 3D / 4D scanning technology had enabled manufacturers to design custom orthotics based on the individual patient requirements and also specific to disorders. Besides, microfluidic chips, power-assisted AFOs, and sensing technology are providing the chance to patients to come over their disability and have an improved standard of living. However, the availability of the technology is mostly confined to developed markets and costly and is yet to set its footprint in the emerging markets.
