non-hospital settings.

The US bracing devices and supports market consists of bracing products for the upper and lower extremities such as the knee, ankle, lumbar back, elbow, and wrist. Such braces are used for supporting various orthopedic joints for prophylactic, post-trauma, and/or post-surgery use. This market is in a mature state and growth avenues are modest.

Market Trends

Due to changing demographics (older and active population) and the usage patterns of orthopedic braces, the market is expected to gain some momentum in the forecast
period. Increasing focus toward preventive medicine is also expected to drive prophylactic use.

Market Competition

While entry barriers to this low-tech market are few, existing manufacturers are introducing devices with new (ergonomic) designs to remain competitive.
Cost pressures remain high, as the market is mature and several niche participants are entering the market with me-too products.

Changing Landscape

The market is realizing that patients have different requirements based on their varied lifestyles. Consequently, the range of devices that can now be selected is vast.
