The likes of Ronaldo, Messi, and others no longer represent distinct names. They don’t need to be memorised for general knowledge competitions. Today’s youth and fans across developing nations tune in to their favourite websites & channels and bet on their Gods! Such has been the lure and spread of sporting culture even in traditional developing economies. It is no wonder that the market has made a note of it.

According to the ‘Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’ (based in the U.S.), around 10 % of the kids & teens participating in sports suffer from minor or major injuries. Also, majority of these injuries occur during 12-16 years of age. Sports, like football and baseball have the highest injury rates.

Market Dynamics

Sports medicines market trends deal with the treatment, prevention, and diagnosis of injuries/illnesses among athletes or sportsmen. The worldwide sports medicine market is driven by increasing sports injuries & sports medicine associations. It is also propelled by technological developments, lack of safety measures, and escalating awareness.

However, the industry restraints include high costs, lack of skilled physicians & physiotherapists, and unfavourable reimbursement policies. Thus, sports medicines have not been considered a ‘mainstream medicine’ branch, preventing the market from growing further.

Taking these factors into account, the market for sports medicines is expected to reach $ 9,655.6 million by the end of 2023. The industry may grow at a CAGR of 8.9 % during 2017-2023.
