The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the global economies with all the sectors witnessing a significant slump during 2020. The healthcare sector was one of the most severely impacted sectors as the pandemic put a tremendous pressure on the healthcare systems to contain the spread of infection. Due to the non-essential nature of trauma fixation procedures, many treatments and surgical procedures were noted to be suspended or postponed indefinitely during pandemic. Thus, low demand was observed for trauma fixation devices amidst the initial months of pandemic, thereby hampering the industry growth.

Increasing incidence of road accidents globally will boost the market expansion

Growing incidence of road accidents is estimated to propel the trauma fixation devices market progression. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 1.25 million fatalities are observed annually due to road traffic accidents and crashes. An additional 20-50 million people suffer from non-fatal injuries, with many incurring physically disabilities. Thus, road traffic accidents are considered as one of the leading causes of death and disability across the globe.

Lack of skilled professionals may slow the market value

Trauma fixation devices are used for complex surgical procedures. Moreover, handling the latest technologically advanced products requires skilled professionals. However, the lack of trained professionals to operate advanced trauma fixation devices is anticipated to cause hindrance in the industry expansion. Furthermore, the novel trauma fixation devices are associated with complex surgical procedures requiring skilled healthcare professionals to operate, thus hampering the industry progression. With majority of the underdeveloped and developing economies lacking the adequate human and infrastructural resources, it is predicted to hamper the industry demand to certain extent over the coming years.

Internal fixators are projected to dominate throughout the forecast period

Internal trauma fixation devices segment will dominate more than 50% of the market share by 2027 on account of the high patient preference towards internal fixators owing to its better procedural outcome. Additionally, internal fixators allow rapid recovery and shorter hospital stays, thereby influencing the market demand. In addition, internal fixators also reduce the chances of improper healing of broken bones, thereby fostering the industry value. Various players are focusing on development of biocompatible devices, thereby leading to the market revenue.

Advantages of stainless steel will impel the segment growth

Stainless steel segment accounted for 53% of revenue share in 2020. Stainless steel is one of the important materials used in the fabrication of internal fixation implants due to its quality such as high corrosion resistance under oxygen-rich environment as compared to other biomaterials. In addition, it is also cost effective in nature, further contributing to the material’s high adoption. Furthermore, countries with low income or limited insurance coverage mostly prefer usage of stainless-steel attributed to its cost-effective nature, thereby contributing to the segment expansion.

Growing prevalence of degenerative bone disease to spur the market growth

Lower extremities segment crossed USD 4.1 billion in 2020. Bone degenerative diseases such as osteoporosis, arthritis and others that cause friction between the joints and ultimately reduces bone strength leading to rapid injuries.

Rapid and cost-effective result will foster the trauma fixation devices market in hospitals

Hospitals for trauma fixation procedures is poised to showcase 3.2% growth rate through 2027 led by the growing incidence of injuries related to sports and hike in number of road accidents. Moreover, increasing number of multispecialty hospitals with an aim to provide appropriate treatments for trauma injuries, mostly in the developing countries including India will propel the industry revenue. Additionally, cost effective treatments provided by various government hospitals in low-income countries will act as major market expansion fuelling factor.
