The three segments of the trauma market, internal fixation, external fixation and bone growth stimulation, will see consistent growth throughout the forecast period. Product demand will be minimally impacted by variations in the economy and reimbursement policies because of the necessary nature of the procedures involved. These factors, coupled with the growing U.S. population with rising numbers of injury-prone obese and elderly people, will potentially make trauma fixation one of the most stable and lucrative areas in the orthopedic market. Trauma fixation will also see growth from innovative materials entering the market place, subsequently increasing product costs as well as opening new product pathways.
