The analysts forecast the global orthopedic bracing and support systems market to grow at a CAGR of 4.35% during the period 2017-2021. Orthopedic braces and support systems are used to restrict or assist physical movement, reduce weight-bearing forces, assist in recovery from fractures, and reduce pain. The proper selection and design of a suitable orthotic product help in the recovery of the affected joint and associated area of the limb. This, in turn, prevents further degenerative of the joints, muscles, and ligaments. The preference for non-invasive treatment is the major driving force in the market. Considering the operative trauma and the recovery time associated with invasive treatments, consumers tend to put off surgery in the case of injuries or other orthopedic conditions and rely on braces and supports for treatment.
