OSTEOPOROSIS : Key statistics & Data on Indian Population.

  • According to the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), osteoporosis is second only to cardiovascular disease, as a global healthcare problem.
  • It is speculated that in the next decade as much as 50% of the Indian population will be victim to this condition.
  • Osteoporosis is also three times as common in Indian males as compared to their counterparts anywhere else in the world.
  • As per Indian census, for population above 50 yrs, there is an estimate that 20% of women and 10-15% men would be Osteoporotic by 2015 (IJMR, 2008).
  • Expert groups put the number of osteoporosis patients at approximately 36 million (2013 figures).
  • In a study among Indian women aged 30-60 years from low income groups, BMD at all the skeletal sites were much lower than values reported from developed countries, with a high prevalence of Osteopenia (52%) and Osteoporosis (29%) thought to be due to inadequate nutrition.
  • ‘This means that a million cases would be added each year.’


Asia: It is projected that more than about 50% of all osteoporotic hip fractures will occur in Asia by the year 2050.
