  • 17 Sep 2019

Global Canes and Crutches Market is estimated to value over USD 7.5 billion by 2026 end and register a CAGR of over 9.1% during the forecast period 2019 to 2026.


The rise in the orthopaedic surgeries is primarily steered by operations performed for the hip and knee replacements. Furthermore, the surgeries are being done for limb amputations going to the damages and injuries caused in the accidents or due to the various diseases. The number of amputation surgeries is prominently required for patients who have developed gangrene conditions due to extreme diabetes. For example, as per the U.S. Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, in the U.S, over 550,000 knee replacement surgeries are conducted annually. Aforementioned, factors significantly contribute to the global cane and crutches market growth.


The knee replacement surgeries are mainly performed over the geriatric population owing to their degrading joints. It is the most commonly conducted orthopaedic operation. The rising prevalence of conditions like ankylosing spondylitis (AS), osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are primarily responsible for the increase in the number of surgeries. For instance, according to a report of Healthline Media that was published in 2018, over 1 million Americans have RA and rheumatoid arthritis affects over 40 in every 100,000 people each year. Similarly, as per the data published by the Spondylitis Association of America, spondyloarthritis is found in approximately 2.7 million people in the U.S which is 1 in over 100 people. Likewise, in 2018, as per the International Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis is projected to affect over 150 million women across the globe, among which nearly 1/10th of women are above 60 years of age, 1/5th of women above 70, 2/5th of women above 80 years of age and 2/3rd of women aged over 90 years. 


Furthermore, the number of surgeries is predicted to be increasing, especially the ones related to musculoskeletal disorders that are associated with sports, age-related dysfunction and occupational injuries. For example, as per the Arthritis Foundation, over 50 million adults have been diagnosed with arthritis. Additionally, over 250,000 children and babies have rheumatic or an arthritis condition. Moreover, the commonly diagnosed type of arthritis is osteoarthritis, which affects over 30 million Americans. Thus, according to the figures and data, the demand for canes and crutches as an aid for post-orthopaedic surgery recovery is predicted to expand the global cane and crutches market size during the forecast period.
