About this report

This Persistence Market Research report examines the scoliosis management market performance for the period 2018 to 2028. The primary objective of the report is to offer updates and insights regarding various market opportunities in the global scoliosis management market.

Scoliosis is a spine disease in which the spine becomes S-shaped or C-shaped. It causes the body to look uneven from the shoulders, hips or waist. Since the cause remains unknown it is called idiopathic scoliosis. The bend or the curvature can occur on left or right side. Moreover, the degree of magnitude decides the treatment options, thereby creating a need for Scoliosis management. Exercises, braces and spinal fusion are the main treatments for scoliosis management. Generally, people suffering from scoliosis prefer using customised braces as the treatment is less expensive as compared to the surgery. The customisation of the braces depends on the degree of curve. If not treated the degree of curvature progresses, which can lead to difficulty in breathing. The scoliosis management market is witnessing increasing adoption of braces for its treatment.

However, absolute dollar opportunity is critical in assessing the level of opportunity that a provider can look to achieve, as well as to identify potential resources from a sales perspective. Furthermore, Persistence Market Research has developed market attractiveness index for all the four segments—regional, product type, age group and distribution channel. This index helps in identifying the real opportunities available in the market.

In the final section of the report, the scoliosis management market landscape is included to provide report audiences with a dashboard view, based on categories of providers across the market, presence in scoliosis management product portfolio and key differentiators.

Scoliosis Management Market has different products one of which is a CTLSO (Cervical Thoracic Lumbar Sacral Orthosis) brace which is a two piece with metal cervical attachment that supports the neck and the back region and prevents the movement of the spine. It is used for the treatment of upper back deformities and the neck.  If the braces are removed, the curve may return to its original position and may increase progressively. The second type of product in scoliosis management market is a TLSO (Thoracolumbosacral Orthosis) brace is used for mid to lower spine area. The braces are placed and customized according to the degree of curves. The pads in the braces provide pressure to slow down the growth and progression for scoliosis mangement. It is prescribed to children with degrees in between 20 and 40. These braces provide partial movement and adjusts to accommodate the growth of the body. Moreover, if the magnitude of the curve does not increase while wearing the brace then the person can avoid spinal fusion surgery.

Lumbosacral Orthosis consists of the whole or part of the lumbar regions. The LSO brace is used to correct the lateral curve of the spine. These braces compress the abdomen and lumbar spine regions tightly and provide a posture to the spine and the pressure can be adjusted through laces or by the back of the belt. Infantile scoliosis in the scoliosis management market is a case in which the infants between 0 and 4 years’ experience the presence of an abnormal curve. The bend is in the shape of S or C. In infants, this condition is seen more in males than in females. Infantile scoliosis falls into two groups:

  • The ones whose degree of curvature or bend disappears with growth
  • While the second group are those whose curvature becomes progressive with the growth and needs braces to slow down the progression of curve

Juvenile scoliosis is diagnosed between the age of 5 and 9 years for scoliosis management market. During this age, scoliosis tends to grow faster, i.e., it becomes progressive and does not disappear on its own. Generally, juvenile patients suffering from scoliosis develop a right bend. As scoliosis is progressive in this age the brace treatment is given to the patients that strengthens the spine and restrains the progressiveness of the spine. The braces need to be changed with the growth of the child in 12–18 months as the degree of curvature will also change.

Adolescent scoliosis occurs between the age of 10 and 18 years. Although the cases are unknown, it can happen due to hormonal imbalance, ayes-metrical growth and muscle imbalance. Physical therapies and treatments are done if the degree of curve is between 10 and 20 degree. While if the degree of curve is between 20 and 40 degree, the braces are used to prevent the progressiveness. These braces have to be worn constantly for 22–23 hours a day for an effective result which pushes the growth of scoliosis management market.

Market Value Forecast

The global scoliosis management market has been estimated to be valued at US$ 2,460.4 Mn in 2018 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 3.6% over the forecast period (2018–2028).

Market Dynamics

The growth of the global scoliosis management market is mainly driven by high prevalence of the disease, high adoption rate of braces and advancement of technology with tracking devices, which can monitor the health of the patient. Furthermore, increasing demand for non-invasive therapies is expected to drive the market for scoliosis braces. The disease occurs equally in both the genders but the degree of curve progresses 8 times higher in females than in males. However, the device has to be worn 22–23 hours a day by the patient so it stiffens their body causing irritation and rashes to the skin. Also, it squeezes the chest wall and abdomen and causes breathing problems, which can affect the oxygen flow and pulmonary functions.
