[119 pages report] This market research report includes a detailed segmentation of the global foot and ankle devices market by product types (joint implants, support and braces, prosthetics, fixations, and consumables), by applications (osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, hammertoe, bunions, and others), by end-users (hospitals, ambulatory care, and trauma centers), and by regions (North America, Europe, APAC, and RoW).
Foot and Ankle Devices Market Research Overview
Infoholic Research predicts that the global foot and ankle devices market will grow at a CAGR of 8.7% during the forecast period. The market is expected to see a significant growth with factors driving the market such as increase in incidence of arthritis, low limb disorders causing acute injury and overuse injuries, sports activities, accidents, and diabetic foot. Also, the increase in popularity of minimally invasive surgical procedures (especially total ankle replacement i.e., arthroplasty procedures) has increased the usage of foot and ankle devices across the globe. Lower extremities are one of the common injury regions in the body primarily caused due to accidents and fall. Other orthopedic disorders also require surgical and replacement procedures. The foot and ankle devices market have advanced joint reconstruction, ankle fusion, internal fixation, and prosthetics. An increase in the demand for minimally invasive orthopedic surgeries is on the rise in developed and developing countries.
The shift from traditional to minimally invasive procedures performed in an outpatient setting is increasing in demand. The growing popularity of minimally invasive surgical procedures has increased the demand of foot and ankle devices as they have fewer complications associated with it. Joint reconstruction is one of the most successful orthopedic surgeries and is expected be one of the most effective and accurate procedures. Arthroscopy is one of the alternatives for the open surgical technique and is the most commonly performed total ankle replacement surgical procedure.
Most of the joint replacement implants are surgically performed when the joint is worn out or becomes dysfunctional due to injuries. Surgeries are primarily carried out to restore mobility and relieve pain. In minimally invasive surgery, a small surgical incision is made and fewer muscles around the joint are detached or cut. Despite this difference, both traditional and minimally invasive joint replacement are technically demanding due to the outcomes and are dependent on the operating team with considerable experience.
According to Infoholic Research analysis, North America accounted for the largest share of the global foot and ankle devices market in 2018. The primary reasons behind the market’s growth in the Americas are rise in the aging population, increasing incidence of osteoporosis, advanced healthcare infrastructure, and rising demand for minimally invasive surgeries. The Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest growth rate due to large patient pool, increasing awareness, and rising healthcare expenditure.
