Growing Number of Sports-Related Injuries is expected to Propel the Growth of the Global Sports Medicine Market
Sports injuries make up a large portion of all the injuries suffered globally. The number of sports injuries is steadily increasing in recent years. With the launch of new leagues around the world to maximize profits and attract audiences, the number of games played has increased dramatically over the years. Players are now playing games non-stop. Nevertheless, players received much-needed relief in 2020 for a few months, when all sports-related activities came to a standstill due to the coronavirus-induced lockdown. However, as sports-related activities resumed and sports leagues decided to finish the remaining matches of the season before starting the new season on schedule, the burden on players increased drastically as players had to play large number of matches within a short period of time without having proper time to rest.
According to Premier League Injury Table, the number of injuries went up by a massive 20% in 2020 with a 17% rise in soft-tissue muscular strain during the first 10 rounds of the English Premier League. A total of 133 muscle injuries were suffered by the players in the first nine rounds of the premier league games in 2020. A total of 462 injuries were suffered in the 2019-2020 campaign with 464 injuries in the season before that. According to the National Safety Council (NSC), exercising inflicted 468,000 injuries in the U.S. followed by 417,000 from bicycling, 404,000 from basketball and 292,000 from football. As the number of games played increases every year, the players are subjected to a greater burden, resulting in a greater number of injuries. These injuries are projected to drive high demand for sports medicine and boost the sports medicine market’s growth throughout the forecast period.
Increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries is supporting the growth of the global sports medicine market
In today’s hyper-competitive world, it is essential for sports players to stay in touch with their respective sports, otherwise, they are in danger of losing their spot in the team. When a player suffers an injury, they do not want to undergo surgery as surgeries require a lot of time and special care to heal. Virgil Van Dijk, a football player for Liverpool FC—a football club in English Premier League, suffered an ACL injury in a match in October 2020. He hasn’t recovered from the surgery even after 8 months and he may need another 3-4 months before he is back. FC Barcelona player Ansu Fati is another player who has to undergo surgeries to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. The player is preparing for a third surgery in the hope of fully recovering from the injury.
Players choose minimally invasive surgeries since it allows them to spend less time on the sidelines and return to their respective teams sooner. As a result, , demand and need for minimally invasive surgeries and treatment methods is going up day by day and is expected to propel the growth of the sports medicine market during the forecast period.
The high cost of orthopedic implants and devices is expected to restrict the growth of the global sports medicine market
Developing countries like India, Latin American countries, countries in Africa, and South-East Asia have a very small portion of the population under insurance coverage. The cost of treatment for sports-related injuries is highly costly, and without insurance; thus, the majority of families in developing countries fail to afford the treatment. According to IRDA (Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority) data, more than three-fourths of India’s population is uninsured, and the bulk of them cannot afford the expensive cost of orthopedic implants (more than USD 12,000) or bone marrow stem cell injections (USD 2,000 – 5,000) in the event of a serious accident. Because of the high cost of implants and other treatments, many families and athletes are unable to afford them, which is a major limitation on the growth of the global sports medicine market over the forecast period.
The knee segment held the largest market share in the global sports medicine market in 2020
Based on the application, the global sports medicine market is segmented into knee, head & neck, shoulder, ankle and foot, wrist and elbow, and others. The knee segment held the largest market share in the year 2020 and is expected to progress at a significant rate during the forecast period. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a very common yet very serious injury for any sportsperson. Football players are very prone to ACL injuries and stay sidelined for 8-12 months due to ACL. Fractures, dislocations, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) are some of the most common injuries suffered by sports players. According to Asian Journal of Sports Medicine, the ACL is the most common injury suffered by Indian Kabaddi players, accounting for 89.5% of all injuries, with 44 players retiring after sustaining knee injuries. The high volume of knee injuries and the severity of these injuries have contributed to the segment’s considerable market position in the global sports medicine market.

COVID-19 has had a negative impact on the entire world, affecting all industries and markets. Countries are still attempting to mitigate the COVID-19’s impact and bring things together. Although ongoing mass vaccination programs have helped to reduce the risk of COVID-19, the second and third waves of the virus, combined with mutant versions of the virus, have made it difficult. When all sports activities were prohibited owing to nationwide lockdowns in March-April 2020, the need for sports medicine decreased; however, as regulations eased and sports activities resumed, the need for sports medications increased due to a rapid surge in injuries. German Football League, Bundesliga, was the first major sports league to resumed in Europe in September 2020. When leagues started, the odds of players being injured were 1.13 times higher than before the lockdown, with a 17% increase in muscular injuries with several players suffering lengthy injuries.
