Bunions most commonly affect women. It has been proven that tight-fitting shoes, especially high-heel and narrow-toed shoes might increase the risk for bunion formation. Constant pressure or friction on the bunion can lead to skin breakdown and infection that may require antibiotic therapy. Changing lifestyle with the increased risk of obesity and increasing geriatric population are the key factors driving the growth of the global bunion treatment market during the forecast period.

A bunion is a protruding bone from the joint at the base of the big toes. Bunions most commonly affect both the inner foot of the toe and the outside of the foot at the base of the little toe referred as a bunionette or tailor's bunion. Bunions may or may not cause symptoms, which are a progressive deformity. Treatment of bunions can include rest, icing, alteration of footwear, foot supports (orthotics), medications, steroid injections, and/or surgery.

Global bunion treatment consists of regions namely the Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East.
The Americas hold the second largest share of the global bunion treatment market owing to the growing trend to use high heels. This can exacerbate the problem because they tip the body's weight forward, forcing the toes into the front of the shoe. Some studies suggest that bunion occur nearly 10 times more frequently in women. Companies are collaborating with manufacturers and marketing firms, thus facilitating the development of better products available at lower prices. In 2016, DePuy Synthes acquired BioMedical Enterprises to gain the latter’s extensive product portfolio of foot and ankle devices.
The European market dominated the global bunion treatment market owing to the high prevalence rate of this disease in the Eastern European regions. Especially in older women, foot disorders are a major cause of disability and sedentary habits. In Germany, a study was conducted involving almost 3,000 women and men ages 56 and older found that women are more likely to have bunions as they get older.
