Plantar Fasciitis Treatment - A Rising & Promising Option

Plantar fasciitis has emerged as a persistent kind of repetitive strain injury that afflicts runners, hikers, and walkers, and also nearly everyone who stands for a living, such as cashiers for instance, especially on hard surfaces. The multi-factorial etiology of plantar fasciitis has led to a significant surge in the number of sufferers, while laying a firm base for the growth of companies that provide treatment for this condition. The steadily growing patient population has opened a window of opportunities for stakeholders who are widely adopting technologically-advanced products to alleviate heel pain in less period of time, and provide better relief even in worse cases. This continuing prevalence of plantar fasciitis has also paved the way for a range of customized foot orthotic insoles, specifically designed to alleviate pain while walking. With this heel pain increasing its hold on the growing geriatric population in particular, Transparency Market Research (TMR) decided to gauge the future growth prospects of the plantar fasciitis treatment market.

Compelling Trends Stimulating Revenues for Market Players

Sedentary Lifestyles Shaping Market Dynamics

Though a sitting, inactive lifestyle can’t really be traced as the key cause behind plantar fasciitis, it definitely increases the risk of this condition. Moreover, the paradigm shift of individuals towards a sedentary lifestyle, coupled with their rapidly changing eating habits, has led to a significant increase in the number obesity cases. For that matter, a large part of the population has become prone to facing pressure on the joints and ankles, which can lead to plantar fasciitis. While plantar fasciitis continues to gain momentum as a common foot pain condition, an increased number of treatments are coming to the fore, with each one of them vying to suffice patient needs in a better way. As obese and geriatric populations fall close to the epicenter of plantar fasciitis, an increased number of people are falling prey to this condition.

In recent years, medication therapy has garnered limelight as the most widely adopted first line of therapy to manage the symptoms associated with plantar fasciitis, such as pain and inflammation. This can be attributed to the increasing number of medical centers, hospitals, and clinics that continue to prescribe one or the other form of painkillers, such as NSAIDS or steroids, to patients to fight plantar fasciitis.  It is pertinent to note that, though medication continues to maintain its position as a widely adopted treatment option, the demand for orthotics is set to grow, owing to the rise in awareness and its proven efficacy in managing plantar fasciitis.

What’s Holding Back Market Growth

The market for plantar fasciitis treatment continues to expand at a promising pace; however, there remains several determinates as potholes in the path leading to market growth. The volatile pricing of raw materials has been compelling orthotics manufacturers to keep a stock of prerequisites such as nylon, raw leather, shoe soles, EVA foam, and carbon composites, to avoid potential interruption in manufacturing caused by the shortfall of raw materials. However, the high risk of disparity in the potential future cost of the product could diminish the profit margins of manufacturer. Moreover, the storage of raw materials also pushes the inventory turnover ratio. Furthermore, as the leather industry continues to face backlash from organizations fighting against animal cruelty, the price point of this raw material continues to spike, limiting the profit margins of stakeholders.
