Global Foot Orthotic Insoles Market to Grow at 6.10% During 2022-2027, Propelled by Increasing Number of Patients Suffering from Foot Disorders

April 25, 2022

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Foot Orthotic Insoles Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity, and Forecast 2022-2027,” finds that the global foot orthotic insoles market size is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.10% during 2022-2027. Foot orthotic insoles, also known as orthoses, refer to shoe inserts that are custom designed to help restore the natural foot function of an individual. They are made using soft foam to relieve the pain for flat feet, alleviate pressure points, and enhance lower limb motion and alignment. They are widely used to treat chronic conditions, such as plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, shin pain, overpronation, collapsed arches, bunions, and Achilles tendonitis. As a result, foot orthotic insoles are prescribed by doctors to maintain the arch, provide support, ease foot pain, improve comfort, and enhance mobility.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.       

Global Foot Orthotic Insoles Market Trends:

The increasing number of patients suffering from foot disorders due to the widespread prevalence of chronic diseases, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, and obesity, represents the primary factor driving the market growth. Besides this, the rising incidences of foot injuries on account of the surging participation of individuals in sports and recreational activities have escalated the product demand. Additionally, with the growing awareness regarding abnormal foot development in children, parents are increasingly opting for custom-made foot orthotic insoles to provide support and comfort. Along with this, the expanding geriatric population that is more susceptible to developing orthopedic disorders has accelerated the product adoption rate. Furthermore, several key players are utilizing advanced technologies, such as three-dimensional (3D) printing and digital imaging, to develop innovative insoles with reduced complications and extended life. Apart from this, the launch of personalized orthotic products manufactured using soft, flexible materials, such as plastic foams, cork, and rubber, that offer a precise fit and enhanced comfort has catalyzed the market growth. Other factors, including the rising usage of eco-friendly materials to manufacture orthotic insoles, easy availability of prefabricated insoles via e-commerce platforms, improving healthcare infrastructure, ongoing research and development (R&D) activities, and technological advancements, are also creating a positive market outlook.
