A new Transparency Market Research report states that the global orthopedic trauma fixation device market was valued at US$6.1 bn in 2014 and is anticipated to reach US$9.3 bn by 2020, by expanding at a CAGR of 7.20% from 2014 to 2020. The title of the report is “Orthopedic Trauma Fixation Devices Market - Global Forecast, Share, Size, Growth and Industry Analysis 2014 - 2020.”
Injuries that affect the body’s musculoskeletal system are called orthopedic traumas. These types of injuries require immediate attention from an orthopedic surgeon or orthopedic trauma specialist because of their seriousness. The devices utilized to fix orthopedic traumas are called orthopedic trauma fixation devices. These implants are usually composed of metals. However, the increasing count of research and development activities by the major device manufacturers has enabled the usage of many other kinds of materials to improve implant performance.
As per the report, the rising occurrence of fractures and the increasing healthcare expenditure globally are amongst the prime factors fuelling the market for orthopedic trauma fixation devices. In addition, the introduction of new procedure techniques coupled with positive clinical outcomes is another major factor augmenting the growth of the market.
Furthermore, the absence of substitutes and the rising sports injuries will also impact the market positively. Industry partnerships, collaborations, and mergers and acquisitions are increasingly being seen in the market. In addition, the mounting popularity of internal fixators made from bioabsorbable (non-metallic) materials as opposed to the conventionally used metallic materials is also a key opportunity seen in the market for orthopedic trauma fixation devices.
