Sports Medicine Devices Market

Sports Medicine Devices Market is Expected to be Flourished by Adoption of Sports Medical Devices in Arthroscopic Surgeries

Sports medicine devices are extensively used in orthopedic surgeries and treatments to repair musculoskeletal injuries resulting from sports activities and accidents. Various devices such as internal fixation devices, external fixation devices, and arthroscopic devices are used in surgical procedures such as knee reconstruction, shoulder reconstruction, hip reconstruction, and other arthroscopic surgeries. Adoption of minimally invasive surgical (MIS) techniques such as arthroscopic surgeries reduces hospital stay and recovery time, improves patient outcomes. Arthroscopic surgeries require specialized devices to perform joint repairs through small incisions as opposed to traditional open surgeries.

The global sports medicine devices market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1451.34 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.6% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics

Increasing adoption of arthroscopic surgeries: Adoption of arthroscopic joint reconstruction surgeries is increasing owing to advantages such as less post-operative pain, reduced risk of infection, faster recovery, and shorter hospital stays. According to National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), around 3 million arthroscopic knee procedures are performed annually in the US. Sports medicine devices such as arthroscopic shavers, tissue repair devices, radiofrequency ablation systems, and fluid management systems are extensively used in arthroscopic procedures.

Growing sports participation: Increasing participation in sports and recreational activities is increasing the risk of musculoskeletal injuries. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ 2008 Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans, regular physical activity can help prevent chronic diseases and conditions. However, higher rates of sports injuries due to increased participation is also fueling the demand for sports medicine devices for treatments and surgeries.

Segment Analysis

The global sports medicine devices market is dominated by the orthobiologics sub-segment. Orthobiologics help in healing and regeneration of injured tissues.
