Global Trauma Products Market- Overview

Trauma, in terms of physical medical conditions, means a very serious injury to the body. When a person is affected by physical trauma, they may be suffering from wounds, broken bones, or internal organ damage. The experience of physical damage can sometimes be so severe that it can lead to psychological difficulties too. That is why hospitals or other healthcare facilities which offer trauma treatment are designated as Major Trauma Centers (MTCs). This is because these facilities are equipped with all the medical specialties that are required for treating an injured patient in the best possible manner.

Global Trauma Products Market Forecast and Trends

Growth Drivers

Rising Cases of Degenerative Bone Diseases

Degenerative bone diseases refer to the deterioration of the bones which causes immense pain and stiffness in the joints. According to a study conducted by the Arthritis Foundation, degenerative joint disease disorders such as osteoarthritis will affect at least 130 million people worldwide by the year 2050 as the world's population continues to age. Some of the most common types of degenerative bone diseases are osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, Paget’s disease, and so on. The prevalence of degenerative bone diseases is surging at a very high rate, especially among the older population as the patients seek treatment as soon as they can because the pain becomes unbearable as time passes. Therefore, they seek implant surgeries, which is contributing to the growing demand for such trauma products.

Expanding Product Portfolio from Companies

Trauma products are widely used in the treatment of wounds caused by accidents, particularly road accidents. Injuries from these accidents can occur anywhere on the body. The anatomy of different regions of the body differs, and treating injuries necessitates the use of different types of implants that are appropriate for the situation. As a result, the industry players are focusing on offering a variety of product lines that meet the demand for various sorts of injuries as well as the needs of the geriatric population as they are more vulnerable to accidents.

Restraints

Existence of Metal Sensitivity in the Human Body

Metals or alloys such as nickel, cobalt, chromium, or titanium are used to make trauma products. When an alien object is inserted into the human body, the natural immune system may attempt to combat it, increasing the risk of allergies or infections such as vasculitis, urticaria, and so on. Furthermore, it may also cause problems or discomfort as the implanted object starts losing its grip. Therefore, in some cases, patients are reluctant to get a surgery that involves using implants of trauma products, thereby affecting its market demand.

Impact of Covid-19 on the Global Trauma Products Market

The sudden onset of the Covid-19 pandemic brought the global trauma products market to a halt. The entire production of such products had to be put on hold due to the protocols of the government-imposed nationwide lockdown in various countries. Furthermore, the distribution channels were completely blocked to prevent the transmission of the virus. As the healthcare professionals, as well as medical facilities, were giving preference to the Covid-19 virus-affected patients, all the elective and non-essential surgeries were postponed and subsequently declined the demand for the trauma products. However, in the post-Covid-19 period, the market is expected to get back on its track as all the postponed surgeries will resume.

Global Trauma Products Market - By Type

Based on types, the global trauma products market is categorized into internal fixators and external fixators. While internal fixators include plates & screws, rods & pins, and others, external fixators include uniplanar & multiplanar fixators, circular fixators, and hybrid fixators. The internal fixators segment held the largest market share in the year 2020. The same segment is estimated to register an impressive CAGR in the forecast period as well. Internal fixators are becoming more popular due to factors such as the rising geriatric population and an increase in the number of physical injuries, which is propelling the market forward.

Global Trauma Products Market - By Surgical Site

Based on the surgical site, the market is segmented into two segments— upper extremities and lower extremities. The upper extremities segment covers the upper part of the body like hands and wrists, shoulders, arm, and elbow, whereas lower extremities cover lower parts like hip & pelvis, lower leg, foot & ankle, knee, and thigh. The upper extremities segment dominated the market in the year 2020 and is likely to maintain its dominance even during the forecast period. People started engaging more and more in physical activities in their homes due to lockdown; however, due to the absence of expert supervision, the cases of physical injuries surged profoundly, driving the market growth.

Global Trauma Products Market - By End-User

Based on end-users, the global trauma products market is divided into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and others. The hospital segment dominated the overall market in terms of revenue in the year 2020. This dominance is mostly due to the high number of patients who come to hospitals for treatment of their individual trauma problems. The government also contributes significantly to the equipment supply. Though the hospital segment is projected to witness a healthy CAGR during the forecast period, the market of ambulatory surgical centers is also expected to surge with a significant growth rate in the foreseeable future.

Global Trauma Products Market - Regional Insights

Geographically, the global trauma products market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America (LATAM), and Middle-East & Africa (MEA). Among all the regions, North America held the largest market share in the year 2020. This is owing to factors such as advanced healthcare infrastructure and rising awareness regarding trauma. Furthermore, all the leading trauma product manufacturing companies are mainly concentrated in this region. As a result, there is easy affordability of such products in the market, which is fueling its overall demand.
