Increasing incidence of road accidents is estimated to propel the market growth. As per the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 1.25 million people die annually due to road traffic accidents and crashes. An additional 20-50 million are injured or physically disabled. Road traffic accidents are considered as one of the leading causes of death and disability. Hence, rising number of road accidents and injuries will act as high impact rendering factor for boosting demand for trauma fixation devices.

Trauma fixation devices has undergone revolutionary changes in terms of technology and user friendliness. The demand for these devices is increasing as a result of technological advancements. Technologically advanced products such as drug eluting implants, bioresorbable implants and nano-coated devices have significantly drive the market expansion.

However, lack of trained professionals to operate technologically complex devices will obstruct the trauma fixation devices market revenue. The novel trauma fixation devices come along with complex technical procedures that require skilled professionals to operate. Most of the developing and underdeveloped economies are facing shortage of such experts, that will hamper the industry progression to certain extent over the coming years.

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the global economies with all the sectors witnessing a significant amount of dip 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. The system underwent significant restructuring and many of the surgeries and treatment procedures were put on hold or delayed due to the non-essential nature of the procedures.

However, comparatively, the trauma fixation devices market was not significantly impacted as the devices are generally used in emergency rooms. These devices are used to treat various orthopedic conditions such as fracture and trauma, among others that require immediate medical attention. With majority of the population staying indoors, the number of trauma instances due to fall increased, that was neutralized by the decrease in number of road accident related injuries. Thus, the number of emergency room visits due to trauma or fractures remained virtually unaffected. This in turn had a significantly lower impact on the demand for trauma fixation devices among the hospitals, thereby leading to a stable growth during the pandemic. Although, a few major players witnessed a slight dip in the revenues, the overall market remained majorly unaffected and is estimated to witness stable growth across the forecast timeframe.

External segment is anticipated to register growth of around 5.3% through 2025 led by increasing usage of external trauma fixation devices, rising incidence of bone related injuries that needs alignment and support for appropriate fixation and rising technological advancements in such devices.

Internal fixators accounted for USD 4.2 billion in 2018 propelled by high demand for internal trauma fixators is attributed to its cost effectiveness and anatomical compatibility, thereby fuelling the product demand and overall market value.

By Material

Stainless steel segment captured 50% of the trauma fixation devices market share in 2018. Stainless steel is one of the frequently used biomaterials in internal fixation implants because of its favourable combination of mechanical properties, cost effectiveness and corrosion resistance in comparison to other biomaterials. Moreover, countries with low income mostly prefer usage of stainless-steel owing to its cost effectiveness, thus enhancing the segment growth.

Titanium as a biomaterial is predicted to expand at a CAGR of more than 5.1% by 2025 impelled by its various biomechanical applications. Titanium implants are presently gaining importance in various developed economies due to its excellent biocompatibility. In addition, lower modulus of elasticity and corrosion resistance characteristics of titanium will further augment the segment expansion.

By Site

Lower extremities segment exceeded USD 4.3 billion in 2018. Bone degenerative diseases such as, osteoporosis, arthritis and others that cause friction between the joints and ultimately reduces bone strength leading to rapid injuries will drive lower extremities market during the forecast period.

Upper extremities segment held around 40% of the market share in 2018 driven by increasing incidence of injuries and rising number of baby boomers. The growing prevalence of orthopaedic diseases will further boost the market demand.

By End-use

Orthopaedic centers for trauma fixation procedures is poised to expand at more than 5.3% CAGR through 2025 on account of increasing number of orthopaedic centers in developed regions such as Europe and North America. People prefer orthopaedic centers over any other settings for orthopaedic procedures owing to availability of state-of-the-art facilities to address the injury.

Hospitals segment accounted for more than 35% of the market share in 2018 led by growing incidence of injuries related to sports and hike in number of road accidents. Increasing number of multispecialty hospitals with an aim to provide appropriate treatments for trauma injuries, mostly in the developing countries including India will foster the industry expansion. Additionally, cost effective treatments provided by various government hospitals in low income countries will act as major growth stimulating factor.
