Dublin, May 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Orthopedic Braces & Supports Market by Product (Knee, Ankle, Spine, Shoulder, Neck, Elbow, Wrist, Facial), Category (Soft, Hard), Application (Ligament (ACL, LCL), Preventive, OA), Distribution, and Region - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The global orthopedic braces and supports market is expected to reach USD 5,470.3 million by 2024 from USD 4,142.2 million in 2019, at a CAGR of 5.7%.

Market growth is mainly driven by the increasing prevalence of orthopedic diseases & disorders, continuous product commercialization, greater product affordability and market availability, rising number of sports and accident-related injuries, and growing public awareness related to preventive care.

Orthopedic braces are designed to cure musculoskeletal disorders; they are used to align, position, support, stabilize, and protect certain parts of the body (such as the muscles, joints, and bones) as they heal from injury. Orthopedic braces are prescribed during post-operative rehabilitation and preventive care.

However, the limited patient qualification for bracing-mediated orthopedic treatment, limited clinical evidence to support the therapeutic efficacy of orthopedic braces, and the high adoption of pain medications are the major factors that are expected to restrain the growth of this market during the forecast period.

In this report, the orthopedic braces and supports market is segmented on the basis of type, application, product, end user, and region.
