What are the Indicators Expected to Drive Sales of Finger Splints?

The driving force for the market is the growing aging population, worldwide. Elderly people suffer from a large number of neurodegenerative, cardiovascular, and musculoskeletal disorders. With age, cartilages become susceptible to strain due to less water content, which requires splinting products. Demand for and acceptance of advanced splinting products such as neoprene, polyester, or metal splints is increasing globally.

Which Region Offers Great Potential for Finger Splints?

Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global market in terms of share as well as CAGR throughout the forecast years. According to the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), Asia is expected to have 50% of the world’s osteoporotic population by 2050.

Large number of unreported cases, high incidence of vitamin D deficiency, and low calcium intake by the Asian population suggests that the region is likely to have the largest number of osteoporosis-related fractures globally, which will drive demand for robust finger splints over the coming years.

Which Type of Finger Splint Accounts for Highest Demand?

Based on type, thumb spica splints are expected to remain dominant in the market. This is due to rising preference for leisure sports, physical activities/fitness, and aerobics across the globe. Thumb spica splints are mainly used to secure nonemergency injuries till they can be checked by a consultant, such as an orthopaedic surgeon. Most sports injuries happen on the thumb area, due to which, demand for thumb spica splints for finger injures is very high.

Which is the Most Dominant Material for Finger Splints?

On the basis of material, the market has been classified into aluminium, neoprene, plastic & thermoplastic, aluminium/foam, and others. Aluminium/foam held a majority share in 2018, and is projected to hold the same position based on revenue generation during the forecast years as well.

Aluminium/foam finger splints are sturdy, lightweight, foam-laminated aluminium splints that curve for appropriate immobilization. Plastic & thermoplastic and neoprene are projected to dominate the market in terms of CAGR, as the material is majorly used in thumb spica splints, which are highly demanded.

How Has COVID-19 Impacted Sales of Finger Splints?

COVID-19 has impacted the demand for finger extension splints, backed by the imposition of lockdowns and demand drop from the sports industry, which happens to be the prime consumer of finger splints.

Moreover, decreased demand and fluctuating industrial output have negatively impacted the market, which is extremely fragmented in nature.
