"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
Fixation of elbow joint plays a key role in managing complicated fracture-dislocations, joint instability after extensive contracture release, and interposition distraction arthroplasty. The risk of elbow injuries is higher in sports activities such as baseball, football, wrestling, biking, skiing, hockey, and others. Elbow dislocation is the second most common joint dislocation with an annual incidence of 6.1 dislocations per 100,000 populations. Strategic collaborations, new product approvals and launches by major orthopedic companies are likely to boost the growth of the global elbow fixators market. In March 2017, Citieffe S.R.L, a medical device company in Italy, received marketing clearance for Dolphix, an MR condition external fixation system, which is anticipated to fuel the growth of the global elbow fixators market.
The Global Elbow Fixators Market is being driven by rising in the incidence of elbow injuries especially among children, technological advancements in the elbow fixators, increase in sports injury incidences, and rise in the geriatric population across the globe. According to Acumed Elbow Solution Analysis Committee, approximately 30% of all adult fractures are associated with the elbow.

According to Acumed, Elbow Solution Analysis Committee, out of 30% of elbow fractures in adults, about 0.5% to 7% were associated with the distal humerus, and 10% with that of the olecranon. Comparatively, capitellum fractures are very rare accounting for approximately 1%. This indicates that among fracture type, olecranon fixators are anticipated to account for a larger share of the global elbow fixators market in the forecast duration.
The global elbow fixators market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to have a major portion of the market share in the forecast period due to the rise in a number of trauma cases as well as an increase in the number of trauma procedures in the region. According to The Ohio State University, over 6 million people in the U.S. break a bone each year, making North America as a potential regional segment for elbow fixators market. The global elbow fixators market is expected to expand in the Asia Pacific at a significant rate in the projected period as a result of improvement in health care infrastructure.
