Growth Drivers

The factors driving the market are the increasing number of injuries due to sports, governments promoting sports among the public, and a rising number of professional athletes.

Factors enhancing the growth of the market for Sports Medicine:

Soaring cases of sports injuries.

Several physically demanding sports often lead to athletes with muscular and bone-related injuries. As per National Collegiate Athletic Association, male swimmers had an injury rate of 4.00 per thousand hours of training and female swimmers had 3.78 injuries per thousand hours of training. According to a study, there were over 3,000 injuries in the NFL in the 2020-21 season alone. A report by the Royal College of Podiatry, the English Premier League players averaged 2.3 injuries per game, compared to 1.94 in the remaining of Europe’s top 4 football leagues. According to a study, 50% of all professional runners experience at least one major injury each year. According to John Hopkin’s Sports Injury Statistics, with over 30 million teens and young adults participating in athletics each year, 3.5 million injuries are recorded every year. Thus, with a rapid spike in the number of sports injuries, the market for sports medicine will further enhance with each passing year. 

A surge in the number of professional athletes.

With the number of leagues present in each sport that offer attractive remunerations and benefits to players, the number of athletes that will take up sports professionally will also grow. According to a US Bureau of Labor Statistics report, the projection for employment in the professional sports sector is expected to grow by 38% between 2020 and 2030, with over 3,400 openings for various positions each year. The report also states that the median salary in 2021 is over USD 77,000, which falls in the top 10% of earners in the US. Hence, with immense potential in professional sports for individuals, more people taking up sports as a profession will increase, thereby increasing the market for sports medicine. 

Governments promoting increased physical and sports-related activities.

Several countries have dedicated programs to promote a healthier lifestyle and sports. The CDC runs a program called Active People, Healthy Nation, which aims to engage more than 27 million Americans in several physical activities. The ‘Healthy People’ program is monitored by the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP), a part of the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health and the Health and Human Services (HHS) department. The 2020 program led the initiative to promote sports, physical activity and healthy nutritional habits in children and teenagers for the upcoming decade. In the EU, a European Week of Sport was introduced in 2015, and in 2018, more than 14 million participants were involved in more than 50,000 events across Europe. In Australia, there is a program called the Sport Australia Participation Grant Program which aims to support organizations and individuals to increase participation in physical and sports-related activities and build overall awareness of the benefits of sports. Thus, with increased participation of the public in sports and physical activities, there will be an increased occurrence of sports-related injuries, which would further bolster the market for sports medicine.

Body repair and body reconstruction had the highest share in the market in the product segment due to the immense number of procedures being carried out in this particular category as compared to the others. According to a study, in a period of 6 years, there were more than 2.5 million visits made to Emergency departments across hospitals, which were related to sporting activities, the majority of which were football or basketball. The majority of these visits required either emergency surgery or post-treatment reconstruction surgery. With an increasing number of sports-related injuries, the market for this segment would grow immensely.

Based on application, knee injuries dominated the market due to their high occurrence across sports. According to a CDC study, over 250,000 individuals suffer from an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in the US each year. In a study issued in the Orthopedic Journal of Sports Medicine, around 195 players across the eight leagues of European football suffered from an ACL injury across three seasons, with 66 lowering their division of play and 25 retiring altogether. In a study published in The Lancet, over a study period of 20 years, there were over 11,000 knee injuries in Australia each year, including anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries, knee contusions and knee dislocations. Hence, with the rising number of knee injuries, the market for professionals needed for treatment in the field of sports medicine will grow, thereby growing the overall sports medicine market. 

Hospitals will dominate the end-user segment as they are the primary location for the treatment of sports-related injuries. Larger hospitals offer comprehensive care for sports injuries, which are primarily orthopaedic injuries and oftentimes, neurological injuries and conditions as well. Hospitals also employ sports medicine ancillary care professionals such as physiotherapists, psychiatrists, and other rehabilitation specialists. Hence, hospitals will continue to dominate the segment.

North America leads the market in the geographical segment due to the high occurrence of sports injuries and the presence of advanced healthcare infrastructure in the region. As per National Safety Council approximates, in 2020, there were over 426,000 bicycling injuries, 378,000 exercise injuries, and over 435,000 two-wheeler and skateboard and hover-board related injuries. A study published by the Brain Injury Research Institute estimates that there are between 1.6 and 3.8 million athletes who have a concussion. According to Health Canada, approximately 35% of all injuries in Canada were due to the sport or related exercise. Thus, with an escalation in the number of sports injuries in the region, the market for sports medicine would be further enhanced.
