The global orthopedic braces and supports market is estimated to reach USD 4.6 billion by 2027 from USD 3.4 billion in 2022, at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period (2022-2027). Growth in the orthopedic braces and supports market is mainly driven by the increasing prevalence of orthopedic diseases & disorders, continuous product commercialization, greater product affordability and market availability, rising number of sports and accident-related injuries, and growing public awareness of preventive care. Increased sales of off-the-shelf and online products, and the expansion and promotion initiatives undertaken by major product manufacturers are also expected to provide a wide range of growth opportunities for players in the market. On the other hand, the limited patient qualification for bracing-mediated orthopedic treatment, limited clinical evidence to support the therapeutic efficacy of orthopedic braces, and the high adoption of pain medications are the major factors expected to limit market growth to a certain extent in the coming years.
