MediPoint: Orthotic and Prosthetic (O&P) Devices - Global Analysis and Market Forecasts

Press release   •   Jul 11, 2016 06:30 EDT

The Global Orthotics and Prosthetics (O&P) Market, which includes braces and supports and prosthetic devices, is an expansive market covering a broad range of indications. Braces and supports, external devices that provide support to joints and weakened musculoskeletal groups to facilitate function and healing, are utilized prominently in osteoarthritis management; fracture, sprain, strain, and tear treatment; and prophylactic sports use. For this report, prosthesis use is focused on a single indication: extremity amputation.

The growing global aging population and subsequent rise in the prevalence of diseases that primarily affect the elderly, including diabetes, vascular disease, and osteoarthritis, as well as the increase in adoption of braces and supports for non-invasive treatment, particularly in fracture management and post-operative rehabilitation, are expected to drive growth in the O&P market. Emerging O&P technologies focus on improving patient comfort and functionality to facilitate increased product adoption.

This report examines O&P device adoption and challenges faced by current competitors in the 10 major markets (10MM): the US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK, Japan, China, India, and Brazil. The analysis also identifies unmet needs in the market, specifies the major drivers and barriers to device adoption, and provides an understanding of physician perception and outlook with an overall emphasis on current and future industry trends in the 10MM.
