The Indian medical screws and plates market share witnessed significant growth in the past and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.08% during the forecast period (2022-2030).
Bone, spinal, and pubic bone fractures, as well as minor fractures, can all be stabilized with the help of medical screws and plates. Cortical screws, cannulated screws, shaft screws, cancellous bone screws, locking head screws, and many more all belong to the larger group of internal fracture-fixing techniques. Orthopedic diseases affecting the bones and joints are common reasons for using these products.

Individuals face emotional and financial consequences because of sports-related injuries, accidents, and falls, including treatment costs and the impact on productivity in cases of disability or death. The automotive industry has witnessed substantial growth due to increased foreign investments, resulting in more middle-class-owned vehicles. This overall increase in factors contributing to bone fractures, such as road accidents, falls, and sports injuries, is expected to significantly contribute to the growth of the medical screws and plates market.
Complications can arise in the medical field if implants are not appropriately sized, screws are inadequately fixed, plates are not contoured properly, or they are positioned incorrectly. Moreover, the absence of cancellous bone grafts at fracture sites can also contribute to complications such as infections, delayed bone healing, and damage to the overall construct. Failure to follow proper plate application principles significantly raises the risk of these complications, which is expected to hinder market growth in the projected period.
Emerging economies offer considerable growth opportunities for both established and new entrants in the market. This is mainly attributed to factors such as the rising prevalence of osteoporosis, a large and growing patient population, expanding healthcare infrastructure, an increasing elderly population, and improved disease diagnosis and treatment awareness. Moreover, market participants actively focus on product development, innovation, and technological advancements, which are expected to drive market growth and create significant demand soon.
The Indian medical screws and plates market is analyzed on a regional level, considering market size, growth potential, and key players. Regions like Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Delhi-NCR have emerged as significant contributors, driven by the increasing demand for orthopedic surgeries and advancements in healthcare infrastructure.
The Indian medical screws and plates market is segmented into materials, types, and end-users.
It is further segmented by material into stainless steel, titanium, nitinol, and others.
Stainless steel dominated the market and is expected to register a CAGR of 8.18% over the forecast period. Stainless Steel (e.g., 316L) is one of the most popular biomaterials for bone plates due to its high biomechanical properties ('E' = 200 20 GPa, ductility, etc.), corrosion resistance, bio inertness, and cost-effectiveness relative to other biocompatible metals.
By type, it is further segmented into upper extremity and lower extremity.
Lower extremity dominated the market and is expected to register a CAGR of 7.55% over the forecast period. Plates, screws, and nails are frequently called internal fixation medical apparatus. These are commonly used for fractures because they hold the fractured bone together and provide support and stabilization. As the most common surgical procedure globally, screws and plates account for a substantial revenue share.
It is further segmented into hospitals and clinics, orthopedic clinics, and ambulatory surgical centers based on end-users.
Hospitals and clinics dominated the market and are expected to register a CAGR of 8.18% over the forecast period. A hospital is a hub for first-line medical attention, with highly trained doctors and nurses on hand to provide specialized care. Additionally, there has been an increase in hospitals throughout the world. The availability of cutting-edge surgical equipment and a sterile operating environment facilitates hospital product adoption.
