Foot & Ankle Devices Market Grow 8.1% to Reach US$ 4,084.97 million in 2027 Despite Pandemic

The foot & ankle devices market was valued at US$ 2,038.24 million in 2018 and it is projected to reach US$ 4,084.97 million in 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.1% from 2019 to 2027.

Foot and ankle devices are used to heal injuries and disorders in the foot and ankle region with or without the help of surgical procedures. Accidents and fall usually cause injuries in the foot and ankle region. On another hand, arthritis, bunions, hammer-toes, and diabetic foot are some of the disorders which may call for surgical procedures with sequential use of foot and ankle devices. The growth of the global foot & ankle devices market is attributed to the increasing incidences of sports injuries, growing incidents of road accidents and increase in the number of orthopedic surgeries. However, lack of reimbursement for orthopedic procedures is the major factor hindering the market growth.

The global foot & ankle devices market is expected to witness substantial growth post-pandemic. The COVID-19 has affected economies and industries in various countries due to lockdowns, travel bans, and business shutdowns. The COVID-19 crisis has overburdened public health systems in many countries and highlighted the strong need for sustainable investment in health systems. As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, the healthcare industry is expected to see a drop in growth. The life sciences segment thrives due to increased demand for invitro diagnostic products and rising research and development activities worldwide. However, the medical technologies and imaging segment is witnessing drop in sales due to a smaller number of surgeries being carried out and delayed or prolonged equipment procurement.

Increase In The Number of Orthopaedic Surgeries to Drive Global Foot & Ankle Devices Market Growth

The rise in the orthopedic surgeries is primarily attributed to the rising number of surgeries done for the replacements of the knee and hip. The surgeries are also performed for amputations of limbs due to damages and injuries caused by accidents or other diseases. As per the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, in the United States, approximately 600,000 knee replacement surgeries are performed per year.

Knee replacement surgeries are performed in the geriatric population for the treatment of their deteriorating joints. Among the orthopedic surgeries, knee replacements are among the most commonly performed. The rise in conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and osteoporosis have led to an increase in the number of orthopedic surgeries. For instance, according to a report published in 2018 of Healthline Media, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects 41 in every 100,000 people per year, and near around, 1.3 million Americans have RA. Likewise, data published by Spondylitis Association of America, states that in America, spondyloarthritis is found in approximately in 2.7million people which is 1 in 100 population. Also, as per the International Osteoporosis Foundation's estimates, during 2018 osteoporosis affected nearly 200 million women worldwide. Out of which, around one-tenth of women are above 60 years of age, around one-fifth of women 70 years and above, two-fifths of women aged above 80 and two- thirds of women aged more than 90.
