Trauma and extremities devices include various simple and complex devices, growing at a considerable pace. According to World Health Organization (WHO), injury accounts for 16% of disease burden globally. Psychological trauma arises from several events including workplace injury, accidents, sports injury, harassment, robbery, and emotionally intrusive thoughts.
Factors such as increase in number of accidents, rise in number of sports related injury, change in lifestyle, and growth in number of geriatric population are projected to fuel the Trauma And Extremities Market. According to WHO, 16,000 people die from injuries every day. Technological advancement and government reimbursement policies are other factors driving the trauma and extremities market globally. The WHO plays an important role to meet these challenges, which include promotion of low-cost improvements in injury care; improvement and standardization of injury surveillance systems; and promotion of injury control policy initiatives for violence, traffic, and other major sources of injury such as sports injury. However, restraints such as stringent regulation for product approval, allergy associated with the utilization of external and internal trauma fixation devices, and chances of infection are expected to hinder the trauma and extremities market globally.
The trauma and extremities market has been segmented by product type, injury type, end-user, and geography. In terms of product type, the trauma and extremities market is classified into external fixation device and internal fixation device. External fixation device includes Schanz pin, connecting rod, and clamp. External fixation devices are used for temporary injuries and can be adjusted according to personal requirement.
