Overview of the global bracing and support market

The global bracing and support market is predicted to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period. The high demand for non-invasive treatment is driving the growth of this market.

An increase in the sports related accidents is another factor for the growth of the market. In the US, around 4 million children are treated for sports related injuries every year, and this number is expected to rise in the coming years. Knee braces account for the largest share of the US market. Sedentary lifestyles are also a major source of musculoskeletal disorders like carpal tunnel syndrome, which has further supported the growth of the market.

North America accounts for nearly 50% of the market share and is predicted to retain its market share until the end of the forecast period.  The bracing and support market is driven by the increase in sports-related injuries within the region.
