Surging Road Mishaps & Sports-Related Injuries Creating Opportunities
The growing number of sports-related injuries, and road accidents, in tandem with the rising cases of limb deformities have been driving the sales of external fixators. As per the World Health Organization (WHO) estimations, over 1MN individuals die globally in road collisions every year. A research conducted by American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine suggests that over 3.5 MN sportspersons and athletes undergo medical treatments for sports injuries, annually. Further the rising sports activities are increasing the risks of injury related to athletes, thereby, triggering the adoption of external fixators. As external fixators stabilize fractured bones until they heal completely, the devices are witnessing proliferating applications in closed and open fracture procedures, such as an unstable radius fracture and tibia fracture. Meanwhile, the WHO reported that global older population is likely to surpass 2BN by 2050 end. Elderly people are more vulnerable to developing osteoporosis as well as several orthopedic conditions, thereby are expected to facilitate the demand for external fixators.
Gains Underpinned by Widespread Patients’ Preference for Minimally Invasive Surgeries
As external fixators require less surgical intervention, patients’ shifting preference for minimally invasive surgeries (MISs) and treatments are benefitting external fixators market. Circular external fixators are witnessing traction in external fixators market for being an incision-free technique that puts the patients at the minimal risk of infections, hemorrhage, soft tissue damage, and tissue trauma. The adoption of circular external fixators is further triggered by the growing demand for high-tech medical devices, and computer-assisted external fixators for enhanced and less time consuming treatment.
Favorable Reimbursement Treatment Policies Steering Sales
The growing number of favorable reimbursement policies for treatment done leveraging computer-assisted external fixators in developing economies is bringing gains to external fixators market. This is further solidified by the rise in the public–private collaborations to offer cost-effective external fixators in countries lacking medical amenities, which is another factor that could fuel global external fixators market growth.
Myriad Restraints Making Market Players’ Growth Challenging
The prevalence of alternative treatments in line with the shortage of skilled orthopaedic surgeons remain key factors influencing growth in external fixators market. External fixators’ manufacturers are focusing on creating cost-effective high-performance variants of external fixators to attain a foot hold in the highly competitive medical devices sector. Another key factor thwarting the growth in external fixators market is the growing risk of surgical-site infection in orthopaedic deformity surgeries. Such growing concerns are prompting external fixators’ manufactures to induce innovation in manufacturing processes to increase device safety value.
