Incidence of sports injuries has increased drastically over the past few years, which has created a favorable environment for the ankle syndesmosis treatment devices market. A study carried out by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) in 2018 revealed that, around 25% of sports injuries were related to lower extremities such as the ankle and foot.
Serious bone injuries have been reported among professionals as well as amateur sportspersons. According to a study conducted by the School of Public Health, Physiotherapy and Population Science, University College Dublin, ankle sprain is one of the most common musculoskeletal injuries.
Nearly 116 studies revealed that, the incidence of ankle sprain was higher among women than in men. In the sports category, ankle sprain incidence was higher in indoor/court sports.
According to data published by the European Association for Injury Prevention and Safety Promotion (EuroSafe) for 2013-2015, nearly 38 million injury patients were being treated every year in emergency departments, out of which 9.5% injuries were related to sports. Increase in the number of accidents and bone disorders such as joint pain, instability in the joints, bone loss, and infection are anticipated to spur demand in the ankle syndesmosis treatment devices market during the forecast period.

Rising Popularity of Biodegradable Implants Creating New Growth Avenues
In orthopedics, the introduction of biodegradable implants made of magnesium and hydroxyapatite has revolutionized ankle syndesmosis treatment. These biodegradable implants do not need a second surgery for removal, and degrade automatically over a period of time. Furthermore, these ankle syndesmosis treatment devices prevent stress, providing appropriate strength for bone healing.
The use of biodegradable implants in fracture fixation is increasing, as new players in the ankle syndesmosis treatment devices market are commercializing these implants. According the National Center for Biotechnology Information, in the U.S., manufacturers have developed a number of copolymers, biodegradable polymers, and composites in order to substitute metal implants for internal fracture fixation.
Therefore, increase in the popularity of biodegradable implants for internal fracture fixation presents significant opportunities for the growth of the ankle syndesmosis treatment devices market.
