Extremity Products Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Rising Elderly Population - In older adults’ muscles and bones deteriorate with age, which makes them more vulnerable to falls and accidents that may cause major injuries including fractures. For instance, more than 85% of all fractures in the elderly are caused by falls. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the number of individuals 60 years of age and over will reach around 2.1 billion worldwide by 2050.
  • Growing Rate of Road Accidents- Many orthopedic injuries can result from auto accidents, such as whiplash, fractures, dislocations, torn ligaments, and injuries to the spinal cord which can be the leading cause of mortality and disability for many people.

For instance, road crashes claim the lives of more than 1 million people annually, injuring up to 45 million more, and filling over 35% of orthopedic beds in hospitals in underdeveloped nations.

  • Increasing Number of Sports-Related Injuries- Children and younger adults frequently sustain sports-related injuries which may impact both soft tissues and developing bone. Particularly, in the US, every year, over 3 million kids and teenagers get injuries from organized sports or physical activities.


  • Exorbitant Cost of Implant Surgeries - Strict government regulations and the high expense of orthopedic implant therapy techniques have raised the overall cost of the procedure for the patient. For instance, in almost the last ten years, the average cost of hip and knee implants has climbed by more than 90%. Moreover, orthopedic implants function differently from other medical devices, which has a unique cost associated with instrumentation, high inventory costs, surgeon training, and specialized sales force.
  • Stringent Regulatory Requirements Leading to Delays in Introducing New Products to the Market
  • Presence of Alternative Treatment Methods May Limit the Adoption of extremity products.

Extremity Products Segmentation

Type (Upper Extremities, Lower Extremities)

The upper extremities segment in the extremity products market is estimated to gain a robust revenue share of 60% in the coming years owing to the growing burden of thromboembolism. When a blood clot separates and plugs another blood vessel, it might cause thromboembolism which represents a significant cause of morbidity for those wearing prosthetic heart valves. Moreover, it is a common pathology that underlies ischemic heart disease, and ischemic stroke which is usually caused by anatomic abnormalities in the venous architecture, reduced blood flow, elevated venous pressure, and increased blood viscosity.

The most frequent cause of acute upper extremity ischemia is thromboembolism which has been linked to the increased usage of cardiac pacemakers, defibrillators, and central venous catheters. Deep vein thrombosis in the upper extremities, can make up as much as one-third of all thromboses when there is physical exertion that can happen to young, healthy people as well as older patients with severe comorbidities. Furthermore, patients with upper extremity deep vein thrombosis typically exhibit upper extremity pain along with edematous swelling of the afflicted arm whereby repeated arm exercises, as well as arm motions, have been identified as the condition's risk factors. For instance, there are more than 1,210,000 instances of venous thrombosis (VTE) in the United States per year.

Material (Metallic, Ceramic, Natural, Polymeric)

Extremity products market from the metallic segment is set to garner a notable share shortly. Metallic implants are frequently chosen as load-bearing components in orthopedic prostheses such as for joint replacement as they are better than conventional ceramic and polymeric orthopedic biomaterials. Metallic implants are becoming more and more significant as they are available in three types stainless steel, CoCr alloys, and Ti and Ti alloys which are considered a great option for complete joint replacement because of their many qualities, including high strength, high fracture toughness, and biocompatibility.

Our in-depth analysis of the global market includes the following segments:


  • Upper Extremities
  • Lower Extremities


  • Hospitals
  • Clinics
  • ASCs
