The Global Knee Braces Market size is expected to reach $1.9 billion by 2025, rising at a market growth of 4.25% CAGR during the forecast period. Knee braces are medical supports used to prohibit knee injury during sports activities and to reduce pain because of medical conditions like tendonitis, osteoarthritis, and other injuries. Athletes or any patients suffering from arthritis as well as other knee injuries, use knee braces to get rid of the pain. Knee braces support the joints of the knee to prevent injuries. These are used for rapid recovery after surgery and for knee joint therapy. Knee braces are made from a combination of plastic, metal, straps, foam, and elastic materials. These braces are available in different sizes, designs, and colors.

Osteoarthritis is a gradual, progressive degenerative disease. In the younger generation, this condition is generally the result of a previous knee injury. However, in the older population, the predisposing factors may be repetitive knee strain; fractures; meniscal injuries that may affect alignment and cause wear and tear; recurrent patellar dislocation and patella fracture; trauma; hypermobility due to ligament laxity or injury; and genetics.

According to the World Health Organization, more than 20% of the world’s population over 60 years of age, accounting for around 130 million people, will suffer from osteoarthritis by 2050. The health and wider social costs of musculoskeletal conditions are substantial. Expenditure on musculoskeletal conditions is difficult to measure due to a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions and limits in health surveillance systems. Orthopedic surgical procedures, such as complete joint replacement, account for one of the highest hospital costs. Such estimates suggest a significant boost to the global market for knee braces over the forecast period.
