Advances in 3D Printed Offerings Drive Developments in Orthopedic Insoles Market

The orthopedic insoles market is estimated to display a very impressive rate of growth of over 10% CAGR for the duration of the forecast period (2021 – 2031). The demand for orthopedic insoles has been increasingly driven by growing patient awareness and treatment options for planar fasciitis, obesity and osteoporosis, especially among women consumer demographics. Innovative product introductions are expected to play key roles in the long-term strategies of manufacturers within the industry.

“The global rise in obese and geriatric demographics is likely to boost the adoption of orthopedic insoles. Innovations in biomaterial-based offerings for low wear and high strength characteristics are witnessing a major rise in demand. Novel offerings involving custom-made, computer-aided, and 3D bio-printed, insoles are likely to gain traction in the near future,” says the FMI study.
