The market is projected to reach USD 1.42 Billion by 2022 from USD 1.10 Billion in 2017, at a CAGR of 5.2%. Factors such as growing prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders and diseases, rapid growth in the geriatric population, rising number of sports-related injuries, and growing adoption of e-commerce platforms for OTC orthopedic braces are driving the growth of the market.

On the basis of product, the OTC Braces And Supports Market is categorized into lower extremity (knee, ankle, foot, back, hip, and spine) and upper extremity (shoulder, elbow, and wrist & hand) braces and supports. In 2017, the lower extremity braces and supports segment is expected to account for the largest share of the market. It is also expected to register the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
