Global Orthopedic Devices Market Size (2024 to 2029)

The global orthopedic devices market size is forecasted to be worth USD 63.07 billion by 2029 and USD 49.13 billion in 2024, growing at a CAGR of 5.12% from 2024 to 2029.

Current Scenario of the Global Orthopedic Devices Market

Orthopedic devices include bandages, splints, prostheses, and special apparatus. Several types of orthopedic devices are distinguished. A fixing device is designed to restrict movements either wholly or partially in a joint; examples are hinged splints, which preserve a specific range of motion in a joint, and rigid braces. Relieving devices are used to relieve pressure on an ailing part by transferring support to functional components of an extremity; examples include the Thomas splint and the Voskoboinikova apparatus. These devices are used to correct a deformity gradually; these include corsets, splints, orthopedic footwear, insoles, and other devices to adjust abnormal foot positions. The innovations and modern diagnostic techniques have significantly reduced the need for complex orthopedic surgical procedures. Furthermore, as per the World Health Organization (WHO), in 2017, the prevalence of musculoskeletal conditions increased with age. Moreover, patterns and prevalence of orthopedic problems vary from region to region due to environmental, racial, and geographic differences.


The rapid increase in the global aging population and rising patient count suffering from orthopedic diseases are majorly propelling the orthopedic devices market growth.

The growing geriatric population base is highly susceptible to the development of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis-related diseases. According to WHO, by 2050, the aging population worldwide is expected to hit 2 billion over 60 years. Increasing the elderly population generates significant demand for various orthopedic devices and implants. With growing age, people suffer from various orthopedic diseases. Due to this, the demand for orthopedic procedures and devices such as joint replacements, spinal implants, and trauma fixation devices is growing significantly. On the other hand, the number of people suffering from various orthopedic diseases such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, traumatic fractures, and rheumatoid arthritis is growing considerably worldwide. As per the data published by the Centers for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC), an estimated 32.5 million adults suffer from osteoarthritis in the United States. According to an article published by the National Centre for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) in 2016, an estimated 200 million people worldwide have osteoporosis. Let alone in the U.S.; an estimated 54 million people have osteoporosis. As per the information published by NCBI, an estimated 1.3 million adults in the United States suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. Likewise, the number of people suffering from orthopedic conditions is expected to promote the need for orthopedic devices and boost market growth.

The growing number of road accidents and sports injuries happening worldwide and increasing are further fuelling the growth rate of the orthopedic devices market.

Road accidents have been one of the significant causes of death among children and young adults worldwide, says WHO. An estimated 1.3 million people die yearly because of road accidents, and a considerable amount of the population. Per the data published by the MORTH India (Ministry of Road Transport & Highways), 412,432 accidents were recorded in 2021 in India, resulting in 153,972 deaths and 384,448 injuries. Road accidents damage several organs in the human body, including knee joints. The growing number of accidents is anticipated to demand more orthopedic devices and promote the market’s growth rate. On the other hand, the incidence of sports injuries is also increasing considerably with each year passing. An estimated 3.5 million injuries happen yearly among children due to their participation in sports and recreational activities in the United States.

The growing preference for minimally invasive surgical procedures stimulates global orthopedic devices market growth.

Owing to the advantages associated with minimally invasive surgeries, such as smaller incisions, reduced scarring, less blood loss, and faster recovery times, the adoption of these surgeries is growing significantly over traditional surgeries. As a result, the usage of orthopedic devices in minimally invasive surgeries has recently seen a spike as these devices are compatible with this type of surgery. In addition, with minimally invasive surgeries, patients can quickly be discharged from the hospitals and have less possibility for post-operative complications. Due to this, the adoption of minimally invasive surgeries for orthopedic diseases is growing and resulting in the orthopedic devices market growth.

In addition, emerging economies offer lucrative opportunities to develop the orthopedic devices market shortly. In addition, the early onset of musculoskeletal conditions triggered by obesity and a sedentary lifestyle are expected to boost the orthopedic devices market growth. Growing diabetes and obesity prevalence, lack of physical activity, low dietary intake, and rising smoking and alcohol consumption patterns would fuel market demand over the forecast years. In addition, new osteology technologies will promote the production of cost-effective instruments. Advancements in technology in 3D printing, robot-assisted surgical procedures, and intelligent implants will reflect driving factors of high impact on global market size. Furthermore, the rising occurrence of road accidents and sports injuries and stimulating demand for minimally invasive surgical processes should stimulate the growth of the global orthopedic devices market. In addition, the availability of medical interventions with innovative materials and biodegradable implants will increase demand.

Currently, available trauma management techniques cannot successfully restore body parts due to the lack of efficient surgical tools. As a result, manufacturers invest significantly in Research and Development (R&D) to develop innovative and capable devices. Increased R&D activities are anticipated to ensure high orthopedic device market growth shortly. Furthermore, growing awareness regarding the availability of innovative products pushes hospitals to upgrade their devices and services continually. Besides, reimbursement coverage of orthopedic treatments has fuelled the adoption of orthopedic surgeries. Hence, this factor led to the implementation and monitoring of many hospitals.


The high costs associated with orthopedic devices and implants are estimated to limit the expansion of the global market growth. Expensive joint reconstructions and implant products will further restrict the adoption among the people. The high costs will restrict access for the people in the low-income regions, which hampers the market size growth. Another primary factor is the risks and complications associated with surgical procedures, such as post-operative infections, neuroparalysis, and loss of free movement, which will hinder the market growth opportunities due to limited adoption among people. Periprosthetic fractures are other complications that result in hip and knee replacement surgeries, further restraining the market growth. The orthopedic devices must meet strict regulatory requirements to ensure high safety, quality, and effectiveness standards, which are challenging to manufacturers when expanding their market revenue worldwide. The increased cases of product recalls by the U.S. F.D.A. will limit the market growth rate. The availability of limited reimbursement policies in specific regions and the presence of minimally skilled professionals in low and underdeveloped regions are estimated to impede the global orthopedic devices market.

Impact Of COVID-19 On the Global Orthopedic Devices Market

The Pandemic has significantly affected various industries, especially healthcare systems worldwide. It had a negative impact on the orthopedic devices market revenue as all the non-emergency cases are restricted to hospitals to provide space for COVID-19 patients and to avoid the spread of the virus. The stringent lockdown regulations by the government worldwide disrupted supply chains and distribution, which affected orthopedic device sales and led to a decline in market revenue. The availability of a limited workforce, staff, and professionals during the band has impacted the healthcare industry. However, the increased patient volume after the resumption of hospitals due to relaxed regulations in various regions has enhanced the sales of orthopedic devices. The increasing number of cases of trauma and injuries among people is estimated to accelerate the market revenue in the coming years.
