Which application segment will dominate the sports medicine market in the next five years?
Sports medicine market is segmented into body reconstruction products (fracture & ligament repair products, arthroscopy devices, implants, prosthetics, orthobiologics), body support & recovery products (braces & support, physiotherapy equipment, and compression clothing), and accessories.
The body support & recovery products segment is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. Products such as braces, supports, and physiotherapy equipment are required before and after procedures involving reconstruction. Thus, the demand for these devices is growing due to the increasing number of sports injuries globally.

What are the upcoming technologies in the sports medicine market?
3 D- printed implants: 3D printing has emerged as a major technology in recent years, and the 3D printing of implants is expected to have a significant impact in the orthopedics field. This is because 3D-printed implants have various advantages, such as customizations as per patient requirements, lower cost (as compared to commercially available implants), lower level of toxicity and a higher level of acceptance in patients, and efficient and quick production. For instance, In May 2019, Kwambio (a Ukraine-based ceramic 3D printing service provider) in collaboration with WeFund Ventures (a European investment firm) launched a 3D bioprinting project called ADAM. This joint initiative aims at developing an end-to-end 3D scanning and 3D printing process for the production of artificial bones.
Prosthetics: Prosthetic limbs have evolved over time to incorporate advanced materials such as plastics and carbon-fiber composites. Technological advancements and novel innovations such as bionic technology, sensor technology, artificial intelligence, and micromechatronics have been made in the prosthetics segment. For eg, In March 2019, UNYQ (US), a San Francisco-based company specializing in 3D printed medical wearables, announced the launch of the UNYQ Socket, a 3D printed prosthetic leg socket at the British Association of Prosthetics and Orthotists (BAPO) in Harrogate, UK
