Global Medical Shoes Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Medical Shoes are shoes that have been specifically designed for use by medical professionals. They are typically made from durable materials that can withstand heavy use, and they often have features that make them easier to clean and disinfect. Medical Shoes can be used in a variety of settings, including hospitals, clinics, and laboratories.

Orthopedic Shoes:

Orthopedic shoes are designed for patients with severe bone disorders such as osteoarthritis, which causes pain and stiffness in the joints. These shoes are also used by patients who have undergone joint replacement surgeries. The growing geriatric population is expected to be a key driver for the market over the forecast period.

Nursing Shoes:

Nursing shoes are designed to protect the nurse's feet while walking on uneven and rough surfaces, especially in hospitals. They have a non-slip rubber sole that is thicker than average shoe soles. The thick sole offers better traction and prevents slippage when walking across bumpy floors or unstable surfaces.

Application Insights:

Based on application, the global medical shoes market has been segmented into children, adults and juveniles. The children and juvenile segment held the largest share in 2017 due to increasing prevalence of diseases in this age group. For instance, as per WHO¢â‚¬â„¢s 2019 Report on Trends in Maternal & Child Health Worldwide, around 1 million deaths occur every year due to pre-mature birth and more than 60 million are reported globally. Moreover, according to a study published by NCBI in 2018 regarding foot disorders among children between 0-5 years of age, about 20% suffer from some form of corns or calluses which require treatment. This is expected to drive demand for medical shoes during the forecast period.

The adult segment is expected register significant growth over the forecast period owing to rising geriatric population across various regions coupled with high incidence rate of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) such as heart attack.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global market in 2017. The presence of well-established healthcare facilities, favorable reimbursement policies, and increasing awareness regarding various available options for treatment are some factors driving the regional demand. In addition, growing preference for ambulatory care over inpatient settings is expected to further fuel growth during the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to witness lucrative growth over the forecast period owing to rising geriatric population and prevalence of chronic diseases such as diabetes and orthopedic conditions that require specialized footwear. Moreover, improving healthcare infrastructure along with rising disposable income levels will also support regional market expansion during the same period  (2018 - 2030). Latin America region is also estimated to exhibit a considerable CAGR due to high incidence of sports injuries coupled with growing number of patients undergoing surgeries or receiving medical treatments at outpatient clinics or hospitals rather than their homes.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing geriatric population: The global geriatric population is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2016 to 2020, reaching nearly 1.6 billion by 2020. This growing population is susceptible to various medical conditions that can be treated with medical shoes.
  • Rising prevalence of diabetes: The number of people with diabetes is increasing rapidly due to the changing lifestyle and dietary habits across the globe. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the number of people with diabetes has quadrupled since 1980 and reached 422 million in 2014. This high prevalence of diabetes will lead to an increase in demand for medical shoes, which are specifically designed for diabetic patients’ feet care needs.
