Market Dynamics:

The global knee braces market is growing due to increasing prevalence of osteoarthritis diseases, rising number of orthopedic knee surgeries, a growing number of injuries in athletics. Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disorder in the United States. Among adults 60 years of age or older the prevalence of symptomatic knee, OA is approximately 10% in men and 13% in women.

The prevalence of OA is increasing due to population ageing and an increase in related factors such as obesity. According to the United Nations, by 2050 people aged over 60 will account for more than 20% of the world’s population. Of that 20%, a conservative estimate of 15% will have symptomatic OA, and one-third of these people will be severely disabled. This concludes that by 2050, 130 million people will suffer from OA worldwide, of whom 40 million will be severely disabled by the disease.

The demand for knee braces is rapidly growing due to growing awareness towards preventive support systems during sports activities, rising number of accidents that lead to a high rate of knee injuries, and growing population which creates a high prevalence of arthritic patients.

Among these, the functional braces accounted for the largest market share in 2018, due to increase in athletic injuries and a large number of patients suffering from arthritis and other ligament-related injuries. The enhanced knee stability and function offered by functional knee braces to people with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries is laos driving the growth of the functional knee braces market.

Based on application, the knee braces market can be segmented into knee ligament injury, arthritis, tendonitis, athletic activity, and others. The knee ligament injury segment is further categorized into medial collateral ligament (MCL), anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). Among these, arthritis and athletic activity dominated the knee brace market during the forecast period owing to increasing prevalence of arthritis globally and rising awareness about preventive support during high-risk sports activities such as basketball and football.

Geographical Analysis:

North America was dominating the Knee Braces market in 2018, and it is expected to remain dominant over the forecast period. Increasing prevalence of osteoarthritis, growing aging population, and rising awareness about knee braces for the treatment of arthritis and sports injuries are the major factors contributing to the market growth in North America. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 30 million adults in the U.S. are affected with osteoarthritis in 2016, leading to high demand of knee braces for the treatment of the disease.

The Asia Pacific knee braces market is also estimated to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period due to rising incidence of arthritis and presence of a large population base. Developing countries such as China and India are emerging markets for knee braces due to improved healthcare infrastructure and growing awareness towards the treatment of diseases. In addition, availability of high-quality treatment and rise in the adoption of sports activities among the young population are driving the market growth in Asia Pacific.
