The medical crutches market size is estimated to be USD 877.1 million in 2022 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 2.67% during the forecast period 2023-2033. Increasing number of osteoporosis and other bone-related disorders worldwide and huge number of people are suffering from non-fatal injuries are some of the factors contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, low prices of medical crutches and large number of surgeries carried out globally are other factors supporting the market growth. However, presence of alternatives is expected to hinder the growth.

Low prices of medical crutches are expected to fuel the market growth during the forecast period. Crutches for patients are typically affordable in price. They range in price from $50 to $200. In contrast to wheelchairs and other walking aids, it is anticipated that most orthopaedic patients and those who undergone surgery will use these crutches as they are less expensive. All of these factors are probably going to help the market expand.

Large number of surgeries carried out globally is predicted to propel the market growth during the forecast period. This increase in demand for medical crutches can be related to the large number of surgeries carried out globally. Every year, 310 million procedures are carried out over the world. In Europe, there are around 20 million performances, while there are between 40 and 50 million in the US. The need for medical crutches is predicted to increase in the future as a result of the large number of people having surgeries around the world.

Segmentation

By Type

The market is categorized into forearm crutch, underarm crutch, leg support crutch, tetrapod crutch, and others. In 2022, the forearm crutch segment accounted for the highest revenue share due to the rising accident rate. Forearm crutches are used by those who have temporary injuries or permanent disability. Accidents are to responsible for these impairments. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) reports that the countries with the highest rates of traffic accidents in 2021 were Japan, Korea, Germany, and Italy. In Japan, there were around 361,562 injuries from traffic accidents in 2021, compared to 323,129 injuries in Germany. This will boost demand for forearm crutches, especially in these nations, and promote the segment's expansion. The underarm crutch market is expected to grow at the fastest rate over the projected period. These crutches are typically used by those who are healing from surgery or have had their legs amputated. Compared to forearm crutches, these crutches require less control and upper body strength. Over 2.1 million Americans currently live with limb loss, and by 2050, that number will rise to over 3.6 million, according to the Amputee Coalition. Additionally, every day in the country, around 507 people lose a limb. The need for an underarm crutch is anticipated to rise due to a high frequency of limb loss, supporting the segment's growth.

By Application

The market is segregated into metal alloy, wood, carbon or glass fiber reinforced composite, and others. In the global market, the metal alloy segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2022 owing to rising preference for metal alloy as it is cost effective, durable, and lightweight. This is predicted to increase the adoption of these crutches by elderly or those with long-term disabilities. All of these factors are enhancing the market's acceptance of metal alloy crutches. The carbon or glass fiber reinforced composite segment is predicted to expand with the fastest CAGR. These crutches are regarded as the strongest and lightest. Compared to metal alloy crutches, these crutches are more durable. These are not readily bent or broken. More than 140 kg may be supported by them. People who struggle with weight might readily use them due to this. In contrast to metal, it is considered to be expensive. Its market share for medical crutches is anticipated to be impacted by this.

By End User

The market is segmented into adults, children, and others. In 2022, the adults segment accounted for the largest revenue share owing to the fact that the amputations, accidents, long-term impairments, and short-term disabilities affect a significant fraction of the population in this age group. Most procedures are also performed on patients in this age group. These factors continue to fuel a significant increase in adult demand for medical crutches. The children segment is anticipated to increase at a CAGR over the course of the projected period. Around the world, a substantial portion of children are disabled. For instance, the UNICEF reported that over 240 million children are born with a disability in November 2021. Furthermore, according to the WHO, traffic-related injuries are the main cause of death for children. All of these factors encourage the market's demand in the children's segment.

Regional Markets

In 2022, North America region accounted for the highest revenue in the medical crutches market and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This is attributed to the highly ageing population, the presence of supportive government policies, and the development of an advanced healthcare infrastructure. The CDC estimates that 61 million adults in the United States are disabled. Additionally, this region is where the majority of market participants. All of these factors contribute to the expansion of the regional market. The Asia Pacific region is anticipated to develop at the fastest CAGR over the course of the projection period. It is anticipated that there will be more disabled persons living in the area due to the region's expanding population and high geriatric population. Additionally, there are many accidents in the area. For instance, according to the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways of India's report, there were around 4,12,432 accidents in India in 2021. The need for medical crutches in the area is being encouraged by all of these factors.
