Sports medicine devices help athletes and active individuals prevent, diagnose and treat injuries related to sports, exercise and physical activity. They include joint reconstruction and repair devices such as knee, hip and shoulder arthroplasty devices as well as external fixation devices, internal fixation devices like screws, plates, pins, rods and other internal fixation devices. In addition, therapeutic equipment like bracing and supporting devices, physiotherapy and rehabilitation equipment and continuous passive motion machines are also included. These devices help treat various musculoskeletal injuries and support post-surgery recovery. Sport medicine devices enable athletes to perform optimally and recover quickly from injuries. The need for such high-performance, durable and ergonomic devices has been increasing with greater participation in sports.
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 key trends:
One of the key trends in the sports medicine devices market is the development and use of bioresorbable materials, which get absorbed by the body over time. This eliminates the need for future surgery to remove implanted devices. Research is being conducted to develop bioresorbable implants made from magnesium or polymers like polylactic acid (PLA) that can be safely broken down by the body without causing inflammation. 3D printing is another emerging trend as it allows for custom designing implants based on individual patients’ anatomy. This improves implant fit and efficacy. Furthermore, wearable biometric sensors and devices enable real-time monitoring of athletes’ vital parameters as well as early detection of tissue damage and overuse. This facilitates preventive care and faster recovery. Technological advances are driving new product innovation in this market to fulfil the growing need for high-performance devices in sports medicine.
Threat of new entrants: The threat of new entrants is moderate. High capital requirements and stringent regulations deter new companies from entering the market. However, growing demand offers opportunities for new startups and established players.
Bargaining power of buyers: The bargaining power of buyers is high due to the presence of many established companies offering substitutable products. Buyers can negotiate on price and switch between brands easily.
Bargaining power of suppliers: Suppliers have moderate bargaining power due to availability of alternative raw material sources and suppliers. However, supply chain disruptions can impact established manufacturers.
