The global orthopedic devices market size was valued at USD 59.36 billion in 2023 and is projected to grow from USD 62.22 billion in 2024 to USD 94.06 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period (2024-2032). Orthopedic devices are designed to manage musculoskeletal complications of the joints or bones. The most common orthopedic devices are rods, spacers, pins, cages, plates, and screws that act as an anchor to improve and align the fractured bones. In recent years, the devices used in orthopedic surgeries have witnessed several technological advancements. Some of these include the 3D printing of materials, usage of robotics, and the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) in treatment planning, and others. For instance, according to an article published in June 2023, an innovative 3D printed artificial knee implant was created by scientists. This product was customized as per the patient’s needs.

The orthopedic devices market growth is driven by factors such as the rising prevalence of osteoporosis and musculoskeletal diseases, growing technological advancements, increasing incidence of sports & traumatic injuries, and growing aging population. For instance, according to Definitive Healthcare, LLC., orthopedic complaints are the top reasons due to which patients visit physicians in the U.S. The growing surgical procedures using various categories of orthopedic implants and instruments are further projected to fuel the market growth.

The COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the orthopedic devices market in 2020. Issues such as risk of transmission of COVID-19, lack of workforce and staff, and decline in orthopedic procedures hampered the market growth. However, patient volumes started increasing during Q3-Q4 2020 as the regulations imposed by the governments of various countries were relaxed. Therefore, the resumption of services had a positive impact on the demand for the product in 2021. The market is projected to witness steady growth prospects over the forecast period.

Orthopedic Devices Market Trends

Rising Deployment of Computer-assisted Surgery, Robotics, and 3D Printing to Increase the Number of Orthopedic Surgeries

The increasing use of technologically advanced products in the minimally invasive surgery space, such as computer-assisted surgical devices and robotics, has led to a shift toward minimally invasive orthopedic surgeries. Minimally invasive procedures are proven to be cost-effective and precise, with additional benefits of quick recovery while reducing hospital stays. Moreover, an increasing number of orthopedic companies are upgrading their product portfolio to include robots to assist the surgeons in spine, hip, and knee procedures. For instance, in May 2023, the U.S. FDA provided 510(k) clearance for TMINI Miniature Robotic System manufactured by THINK Surgical, Inc. The system is aimed to assist orthopedic surgeons in total knee replacement surgery. Similarly, in October 2021, Medtronic Canada ULC, a subsidiary of Medtronic plc, launched the Mazor X System for robotic-guided spine surgery with an aim to expand into the robot-aided spine surgery space.

Orthopedic Devices Market Growth Factors

Rising Occurrence of Traumatic Injuries and Orthopedic Disorders to Fuel the Market Growth

A rapid rise in the incidence of musculoskeletal diseases and orthopedic injuries leading to limited mobility and agonizing physical pain is the primary factor expected to fuel the demand for the product during the forecast period. According to a report published by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons in 2019, about 6.8 million patients with orthopedic injuries need medical attention every year in the U.S. alone. Moreover, a substantial surge in the occurrence of osteoporosis (brittle bone), which is characterized by the physical weakening of bone tissues and low bone-to-mass density ratio, is expected to propel the demand for orthopedic surgical devices in the coming years. For instance, according to data published by Bone Health and Osteoporosis Foundation, the number of American individuals having osteoporosis is around 10 million. Additionally, another 44 million individuals have low bone density, which in turn leads to higher risk of bone damage.

Rising Elderly Population to Boost Surgical Procedural Volume, Driving Market Growth

An evidential surge in the elderly population is supplementing the market growth due to the fact that elderly people are highly susceptible to hip fractures. As per a report published by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons in 2021, over 300,000 adults aged 65 and above are hospitalized every year for hip fractures. Moreover, about 30% of senior citizens fall every year, leading to a rise in the number of orthopedic injuries, which is fueling the demand for orthopedic devices.

The expansion in research and technological progressions in orthopedics, the growing number of people with obesity, and the adoption of sedentary and inactive lifestyles are anticipated to lead to a growing demand for the product in the coming years. In addition, rising expenditure in the research sector by prominent companies for the development of advantageous and minimally invasive devices for orthopedic surgeries is expected to propel the market growth during the forecast period.


Post-Surgical Complications and Steep Price of Surgical Implantation May Hamper the Market Growth

Despite the increasing incidence of orthopedic injuries and rising geriatric population across the globe, the high costs of the procedure and postoperative complications are limiting the market growth.  According to Richard Kim Medicine, the average cost of total shoulder arthroplasty in Ohio, U.S., is USD 18,165, whereas the same procedure costs around USD 30,000 in Florida. These costs are continuously rising since the past few years.

On the other hand, several risks are associated with these procedures. A few risks and complications associated with orthopedic surgical procedures include blood effusion, neuroparalysis, infections post-surgery, dislocation, venous thrombosis, and a lack of full range of motion. These factors restrain the market growth to a certain extent.

Orthopedic Devices Market Segmentation Analysis

By Type Analysis

Joint Reconstruction Devices Segment Dominates Due to the Increasing Number of Knee and Hip Replacements 

Based on type, the market is segmented into spinal devices, joint reconstruction devices, trauma devices, orthobiologics devices, arthroscopy devices, and others. Among these, the joint reconstruction devices segment held the dominant share of the market in 2023. An increasing number of procedures, such as shoulder and extremities reconstructions, knee and hip replacements, and other musculoskeletal procedures related to these joints, are contributing to the growth of the segment.

The arthroscopy devices (sports medicine/soft tissue repair) segment is projected to expand at a significantly high growth rate during the forecast period owing to growing introduction of new products in the market and increasing sports-related soft tissue injuries.

  • For instance, according to data published by the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare, in the year 2020-2021, the number of sports injury hospitalizations in the country was 66,500. Fracture and soft tissue injuries were leading the number by accounting for 53% and 17% of the total cases respectively.

By End-user Analysis

Hospitals to Continue to be a Leading Segment owing to Adequate Reimbursement Policies Provided by Hospitals

Based on end-user, the market is divided into hospitals & ASCs, orthopedic clinic, and others. The hospitals segment accounted for the highest market share in 2023 and is projected to grow at a significant CAGR over the forecast period. Orthopedic devices are primarily used in hospitals as they are implanted surgically. In addition, a large patient pool suffering from orthopedic injuries is mostly treated in hospitals. Apart from the treatment, adequate reimbursement policies provided by hospitals are also a key factor responsible for the high proportion of patients being treated in hospitals. However, the increasing adoption of minimally invasive procedures is anticipated to result in a preferential shift toward ambulatory surgery centers.
