Market Overview

The global orthopedic splints market is expected to be driven by increasing incidence of age-related osteoporotic fractures, musculoskeletal conditions, and trauma caused due to road accidents and falls and also the increasing of the geriatric population.

According to the Arthritis Research UK report on “The State of Musculoskeletal Health 2018”, it was estimated that 17.8 million people live with a musculoskeletal condition in the United Kingdom, which is around 28.9% of the total population.

Also, according to the National Arthritis Data Working Group (NADWG), in 2018, 27 million adults suffered from osteoarthritis. Thus, with such huge disease burden, the usage of splints is expected to increase during the forecast years. Splints, also known as half-casts, are easier and majorly used to heal and support a variety of acute orthopedic conditions such as sprains.

The other factors, such as increasing geriatric population and obese population are also driving the orthopedic splints market. Most of the times, people prefer self-prescribing for several musculoskeletal pains and swelling. This mostly involves the usage of pain killers and pain relief ointments, because few pain killers are usually available in the market as OTC medications. Hence such factors possibly affect the growth of the market.
