Global Forearm Crutch Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A forearm crutch is a type of walking aid that provides support to the user by attaching to their forearm. Forearm crutches are often used as an alternative to traditional canes or walkers, as they provide more stability and strength.


Aluminum is a metal, its main use is in the form of aluminum alloys. It can be used as an alloy with various metals such as copper, zinc, magnesium and others to produce lightweight material that has high strength. Aluminum crutches are made from cast or pressed aluminum and are available in different sizes for children and adults.


Wooden is a material that consists of cellulose fiber, lignin, and other natural impurities. It has been used as a raw material for the production of crutches and staffs by disabled people since Neolithic times (10,000 BC). Wooden crutches are more popular than metal or plastic crutches because they are less expensive; however, their strength is not as good as metal or plastic ones.

Application Insights:

The adults segment held the largest share of over 70.0% in 2017. The application of forearm crutches is increasing owing to the rising cases of orthopedic disorders and trauma among adults as compared to children. According to a study published by NCBI, it was observed that around 60-80% of people suffer from some form of musculoskeletal disorder during their lifetime while 30-50% are diagnosed with such injuries every year in the U.S., thus driving the demand for crutches among adults as against kids.

In addition, according to WHO, around 1 billion people worldwide are affected by arthritis each year which is expected to increase up till 2040 when compared with current estimates due largely to an increase in life expectancy and prevalence rates over previous years have been recorded globally which further drives market growth on a positive note for forearm crutch manufacturers across regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global forearm crutch market in 2017. The region is expected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period as well. This can be attributed to increasing cases of bone cancer, rising healthcare expenditure, and high adoption of innovative products in U.S., which are majorly driven by physicians and therapists.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness lucrative growth over the next eight years owing to a large population base with high unmet needs for medical assistance coupled with rapidly improving economic conditions in emerging countries such as India & China & Indonesia etcetera (sic).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing geriatric population: The global geriatric population is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2016 to 2020, owing to the increase in life expectancy and the growth in the number of people aged 65 years and above. This will result in an increase in demand for forearm crutches, as they are mostly used by elderly people who have difficulty walking or standing on their own.
  • Rising incidence of chronic diseases: The prevalence of chronic diseases such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and cerebral palsy is increasing globally, which is leading to an increase in demand for forearm crutches among patients suffering from these conditions.
  • Technological advancements: There has been a significant advancement in technology pertaining to crutch design and function over the past few years, which has led to increased adoption of forearm crutches among users worldwide. This trend is likely to continue over the next few years, resulting in higher market growth rates for this product segment.
