Orthopedic Devices Market Size (2022 to 2027)

The global orthopedic devices market size is forecasted to be worth USD 57.08 billion by 2027 and USD 44.47 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 5.12% from 2022 to 2027.

Some of the key insights from the report:

  • Based on Anatomical location, the Knee orthopedic devices segment covered 28.6% of the global orthopedic devices market in 2021.
  • Based on type of consumables, the orthopedic suture anchors segment captured 75% of the global market share in 2021.
  • North American orthopedic devices market has the largest share globally and is expected to be worth USD 18.90 Billion by 2027.
  • Asia pacific orthopedic devices market has the highest CAGR of  7.03% during the forecast period and is expected to be worth USD 14.21 Billion by 2027.

Orthopedic devices include bandages, splints, prostheses, and special apparatus. Several types of orthopedic devices are distinguished. A fixing device is designed to either wholly or partially restrict movements 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, coupled with modern diagnostic techniques, have also 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.

COVID-19 impact on the global orthopedic devices market:

COVID-19 pandemic crises are still going on, and hence the reason for exports and imports of devices is limited. Many medical practitioners and staff are affected by this pandemic period. The Corona Virus (COVID-19) pandemic has affected the world quickly, affecting millions of people and leading thousands to death. Nearly all the sectors have been disrupted, including the healthcare sector. The pandemic profoundly impacts orthopedic and trauma surgery, an unrelated specialty. Governments across the world have imposed severe lockdowns during the pandemic time. During the pandemic, all the surgeries to be performed were postponed or canceled. In case of emergencies, the doctors and the surgeons are on the frontline, acting like warriors.  The manufacturers have stopped their production during the lockdown period. Once the lockdown has come to an end, activities have resumed. As a result, there has been an increase in economic and financial status in the healthcare sector, positively influencing the orthopedic devices market.


The rapid increase in the aging population across the globe and the rise in the prevalence of orthopedic injuries or diseases such as osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, traumatic fractures, and rheumatoid arthritis are the factors that are driving the orthopedic devices market.

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 base would generate significant demand for different orthopedic implants and equipment. They are also increasing the incidence of road accidents and sports injuries and spurring demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures to stimulate global market growth. Furthermore, 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 rising cost burden from costly surgery, high implant costs, and skilled professional dearth may impede the orthopedic devices market growth.

The lack of a standardized payment environment in developed countries and low per capita spending on health care in developing countries could hamper the acceptance of advanced devices in the years to come. In addition, the FDA has strictly supervised orthopedic devices to pass through quality control and checks. The high cost of orthopedic devices is also slowly restraining the demand for the orthopedic devices market. A cost-effective solution is yet to be provided by manufacturers. However, there are few post-surgery complications.

Impact of COVID-19 on the orthopedic devices market:

The SARS-COV-2 had negatively impacted the market growth of the orthopedic devices market during the pandemic period. The market structure has been completely changed due to changes in the needs of the hospitals. In addition, an increasing number of cases has led to the nationwide lockdown and the ban on transportation to disrupt the virus transmission.

COVID-19 is an infectious disease that was first identified in Wuhan, China. The pandemic emerged as a regional pandemic and transformed into a global pandemic. During the first quarter of 2020, COVID-19 positive cases had increased enormously, and there is significant uncertainty about the economy as the world struggles with the ongoing pandemic. Most advanced healthcare facilities were busy taking care of COVID-19 patients, resulting in a shortage of workers for other illness treatments. Moreover, stringent government COVID-19 guidelines limited device manufacture and led to a growth decline. As a result, the supply chain of orthopedic devices was disrupted, and partial orthopedic activities were made. Reports of Stryker show a decrease in 2020, about 15% alone in the United States and 20% internationally. However, the market is anticipated to increase its growth in the years to come.
