The global OTC orthopedic braces market is estimated to reach USD 1.33 Billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2016 to 2021. The growing demand for orthopedic braces among the geriatric population, rising incidence of bone-degenerative diseases, increasing global burden for obesity, ongoing commercialization of orthopedic bracing and support products, affordability and easy availability of OTC orthopedic brace (as compared to prescription-based products), rising public participation in sports, easy accessibility of OTC orthopedic brace and supports through e-commerce websites, and adoption of orthopedic braces for preventive care are some of the key factors fueling the growth of the global market. Moreover, the rising incidence of orthopedic injuries in the youth, noninvasive nature of treatment with orthopedic braces and supports, and reduced reimbursements offered for orthopedic surgery in developed nations are expected to offer growth opportunities for players operating in the global market. However, the high patient preference for alternative treatments, limited reimbursements offered for OTC orthopedic brace and supports, dearth of substantial clinical evidences supporting the efficacy of orthopedic braces and supports in prophylactic and rehabilitative use, and lack of customization options for OTC orthopedic brace are hampering the growth of the global OTC orthopedic brace market.

Emerging markets (including China, India, and Brazil) are expected to offer significant growth opportunities for players active in the OTC orthopedic braces industry. The growing middle-class population, increasing GDP and healthcare expenditure among emerging Asian countries, and increasing public awareness about various treatment options available for orthopedic conditions are the key factors propelling the demand of OTC orthopedic braces and supports in the emerging nations. Hence, players are expanding their presence in these countries in order to leverage the high growth opportunities.

As of 2015, DJO Finance LLC (U.S.) held the leading position in the global OTC orthopedic braces market. Over the last three years, the company adopted the strategy of new product launches and product enhancements to ensure its dominance in this market. DeRoyal Industries Inc. (U.S.), Breg, Inc.

The global OTC orthopedic braces market is estimated to reach USD 1.33 Billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period of 2016 to 2021. Factors such as the growing demand for orthopedic braces among the geriatric population, rising incidence of bone-degenerative diseases, increasing global burden for obesity, ongoing commercialization of orthopedic bracing and support products, affordability and easy availability of OTC orthopedic brace (as compared to prescription-based products), rising public participation in sports, easy accessibility of OTC orthopedic brace and supports through e-commerce websites, and adoption of orthopedic braces for preventive care are propelling the growth of the global market. However, high patient preference for alternative treatments, limited reimbursements offered for OTC orthopedic braces and supports, dearth of substantial clinical evidences supporting the efficacy of orthopedic braces and supports in prophylactic and rehabilitative use, and lack of customization options for OTC orthopedic brace are some of the major factors restraining the growth of this market.

On the basis of products, the global OTC orthopedic braces market is segmented into lower extremity braces (knee and foot & ankle braces), upper extremity braces (shoulder, elbow, and wrist braces), back & hip braces, and other braces (neck, groin, calf, thigh, and facial braces). The lower extremity braces segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the next five years, owing to the growing geriatric population (coupled with the higher prevalence of knee arthritis among geriatrics as compared to adult individuals), high adoption of knee braces among athletes, rising number of knee replacement surgeries, growing prevalence of obesity, and significant demand for noninvasive treatments across the globe.

Based on indication, the OTC orthopedic braces market is classified into four segments, namely, prophylactic, injury, osteoarthritis (OA), and other indications. The prophylactic segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR in the next five years, due to the active participation in sports activities across the major markets (such as the U.S. and European counties), evidence of successful studies which show the effectiveness of prophylactic braces in reducing injury rates, and growing consciousness about the use of prophylactic braces during sports-related activities.

On the basis of regions, market is divided into North America, Europe, Asia, Pacific, and the Rest of the World. In 2016, the global market is estimated to be dominated by North America. A number of factors such as rising geriatric population, increasing incidence of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, growing obese population, rising number of injuries due to road accidents, and active participation of the population in sports activities are driving the growth of the market in the North American region. The Asian market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021. This is primarily due to the growing middle-class population, increasing GDP and healthcare expenditure among emerging Asian countries, and increasing public awareness about various treatment options available for orthopedic conditions.
