Orthopedic Splints Market: Key Drivers, Trends, and Challenges

The increasing incidence of osteoporotic fractures is notably driving the orthopedic splints market growth, although factors such as complications associated with usage of splints may impede the market growth. Our research analysts have studied the historical data and deduced the key market drivers and the COVID-19 pandemic impact on the orthopedic splints industry. The holistic analysis of the drivers will help in deducing end goals and refining marketing strategies to gain a competitive edge.

Key Orthopedic Splints Market Driver

One of the key factors driving the global orthopedic splints market growth is the increasing incidence of osteoporotic fractures. The spinal fractures, also called vertebral compression fractures, occur an estimated 1.5 million times annually in the US. They are twice as common as other fractures linked to osteoporosis, including broken hips and wrists. According to the data provided by the International Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually, resulting in an osteoporosis fracture every 3 seconds. In 2019, in Europe, approximately 32 million individuals aged above 50 years were estimated to have osteoporosis. The prevalence of osteoarthritis in the growing aging population across the globe acts as one of the major factors driving the growth of the global orthopedic splints market.

Key Orthopedic Splints Market Trend

Usage of splints for the treatment of tetraplegic patients is another key factor driving the global orthopedic splints market growth. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC), in the US, the annual incidence of spinal cord injury (SCI) is approximately 54 cases per one million people. The usage of these splints is considered important for controlling and preventing the deformities of the hands of a tetraplegic patient. Because the hands of a tetraplegic patient are prone to contracture, overstretching, tightening of soft tissues, stiffness, and instability of the joints due to the loss of muscle function. Furthermore, the availability of a wide range of moldable splints (at an affordable price) that can be ideal for usage by tetraplegic patients will drive the growth of the global orthopedic splints market during the forecast period.

Key Orthopedic Splints Market Challenge

One of the key challenges to the global orthopedic splints market growth is the complications associated with the usage of splints. The leading complication that arises with the usage of splints is compartment syndrome which affects the blood flow of the limb covered by a splint and leads to tissue perfusion. It can also cause ischemia and potentially irreversible damage to the soft tissues within that space. Additionally, thermal injuries such as heat burns to the skin can occur as a result of splinting process. These heat burns can be caused by prolonged usage of fiberglass or plaster splints. The usage of splints can also lead to complications such as skin breakdown, often caused by focal pressure from a wrinkled, unpadded, or underpadded splint on underlying soft tissue. Thus, these challenges are expected to negatively impact the global orthopedic splints market during the forecast period.

This orthopedic splints market analysis report also provides detailed information on other upcoming trends and challenges that will have a far-reaching effect on the market growth. The actionable insights on the trends and challenges will help companies evaluate and develop growth strategies for 2022-2026.

41% of the market's growth will originate from North America during the forecast period. The US is the key market for orthopedic splints in North America. Market growth in this region will be faster than the growth of the market in Europe and ROW.

The significant increase in the number of non-fatal road injuries and sports injuries in countries such as the US and the strong market presence of the leading vendors will facilitate the orthopedic splints market growth in North America over the forecast period. This market research report entails detailed information on the competitive intelligence, marketing gaps, and regional opportunities in store for vendors, which will assist in creating efficient business plans.

COVID Impact and Recovery Analysis

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the orthopedic splints market in the region. The pandemic reduced the number of sports activities in the region, resulting in fewer injuries to joints and ligaments. Additionally, elective surgeries and non-emergency procedures, including orthopedic surgeries, were delayed in 2020 by hospitals in the US. According to the American Hospital Association, the financial impact of the reduction in elective procedures in the US, which drives a huge share of the revenue for hospitals, led to an estimated USD 200 billion in financial losses for healthcare systems and hospitals between March and June 2020. However, in H2 2021 due to the availability of vaccines and reduction in COVID-19 cases in the region, hospitals and other healthcare facilities resumed elective procedures such as orthopedic surgeries. Thus, the regional demand for orthopedic splints rebounded, which will positively impact the market growth during the forecast period.
