Advances in 3D printed offerings are driving developments in the orthopedic insole market FMI

The orthopedic insoles market shows a very impressive growth rate of over 10% CAGR for the period of the forecast period (2021-2031). The demand for orthopedic insoles has been increasingly driven by increasing patient awareness and treatment options for planar fasciitis, obesity and osteoporosis, particularly among female consumers. Innovative product launches are expected to play a key role in the long-term strategies of manufacturers in the industry.

“The global rise in obese and geriatric demographics is likely to encourage the adoption of orthopedic insoles. Innovations in offers based on biomaterials for low wear and high strength properties are seeing a sharp increase in demand. New offers with tailor-made, computer-aided and 3D bio-printed insoles are likely to gain in importance in the near future, ”says the FMI study.
