For the purpose of this study, kinesiology tapes market is studied by their tape type in following areas:

  1. Roll Form
  2. Pre-shaped

Kinesiology Tapes Market

Rolls are the initial form of tapes that are marketed and widely adopted across users. As a result, this segment leads the kinesiology tapes market in term of value. Pre-shaped version of kinesiology tapes has been recently introduced in the market. These tapes are ready to apply, as no cutting or measuring is required for the application. Pre-shaped tapes are expected to grow at a considerable pace due to advantages such as reduction in application time, user-friendliness, and durability. Although in some cases, a specific shape of tape is required by the patient for treatment, which is not available as pre-shaped, physicians have to opt for roll form tapes. This phenomenon acts as a restraint to pre-shaped kinesiology tapes market including flexibility of the tape. Other market growth factors include increasing incidence of muscle injuries and product innovation.

For the purpose of this study, the global kinesiology tapes market is studied by their application in following areas:

  • Achilles tendonitis
  • ACL/MCL issues
  • Groin and hamstring pulls
  • Jumpers knee (PFS)
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Rotator cuff
  • Other Indication
    • Lower back issues
    • Pain associated with pregnancy
    • Shin splints
    • Tennis and golf elbow

Kinesiology Tapes Market

Based on applications, the global kinesiology tapes market is segmented into Achilles tendonitis, ACL/MCL issues, groin and hamstring pull, jumpers knee (PFS), plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injury/pain and other indications. Other indications segment is further classified into lower back issues, pain associated with pregnancy, shin splints, and tennis and golf elbow. The Achilles tendon is the strongest tendon in the body that connects calf muscle to the heel bone and aids in movements such as walking and jumping. Kinesiology tapes can be used effectively to treat injury to Achilles tendon. These tapes lift the skin to improve circulation and maintain flexibility thereby relieve pain. Hence, this segment of global kinesiology tapes holds a prominent market share due to the adoption of the non-surgical procedures for treatment and growing incidence of Achilles tendonitis. According to one research, the incidence of Achilles tendinitis is estimated around 2.66 ruptures per 1,000 person-years and this incidence is increasing globally due to increasing sports injury. In terms of market value, Achilles tendon segment is followed by ACL/MCL issues segment. ACL/MCL injuries are common in sports and its increasing incidence drives this segment. In terms of market value, this segment is followed by groin and hamstring pulls, jumpers knee (PFS), plantar fasciitis, rotator cuff injuries and other indications.

Adoption of kinesiology tapes as a non-surgical treatment for musculoskeletal injuries in major economies across the globe and its increasing usage awareness in developing nations are the prime factors that drive global kinesiology tapes market. Also, the incidence and prevalence of musculoskeletal injuries play a vital role in the expansion of global kinesiology tapes market.

Based on geographical regions, the global kinesiology tapes market is categorized into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa and Latin America.

Kinesiology Tapes Market

Currently, in terms of market value, North America is leading the global kinesiology tapes market. Growing indulgence in sports-related activities and increase in healthcare expenditure are the major factors that contribute to the domination of North America in global kinesiology market. High Incidence of muscle injuries in the region is also a prime factor for its dominance globally.

North America is followed by European region in kinesiology tapes market. Adoption of the new pre-shaped tapes by the healthcare professionals and athletes in the region is a factor for its growth. It is also estimated that Asia Pacific region will experience the fastest market growth during the forecast period. This growth is estimated based on improved awareness about muscle injuries and these alternative methods of treatment.
