DUBLIN, March 27, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
The "Artificial Disc Market by Type, by Material and by Geography- Global Market Size, Share, Development, Growth, and Demand Forecast, 2014-2024" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The growth in the industry is expected to be majorly led by product and technological innovations, increasing incidence of degenerative disc diseases, rising propensity for minimal incision surgeries, better clinical trial results with cervical total disc replacement (C-TDR) compared to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF), long-term cost benefits of disc replacement over spinal fusion procedures, surging geriatric population, and rising healthcare expenditure.
Insights on Market Segments:
On the basis of material, the market has been categorized into metal-on-polymer and others; the other materials used primarily include metal-on-ceramic, polymer-on-ceramic, and metal-on-metal. Metal-on-polymer is estimated to hold a larger share, of 82.9%, in 2017, with the demand for metal-on-polymer discs majorly driven by their higher impact strength, better motion, and easier insertion capabilities.
On the basis of type of artificial disc available in the market, cervical discs are estimated to garner a larger share of 68.0%, in the artificial disc market in 2017, as they facilitate early postoperative neck motion and reduce the chances of the cervical degenerative disc disease of adjacent segments of the cervical spine, post-surgery.
Asia-Pacific (APAC) expected to be the fastest growing market for artificial discs
The APAC artificial disc market is expected to witness the fastest growth in demand, at a CAGR of 20.6%, during the forecast period, owing to growing geriatric population, rising healthcare expenditure, increasing per capita income, and increasing public and private investments in the healthcare sector to cater to the unmet medical needs of the people in the region.
According to the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), people aged 65 years and above constituted approximately 11.4% of the population in 2013, and the count is estimated to increase by approximately 20% by 2050. Thus, these rising figures with respect to the geriatric population, are an important factor leading to the increasing demand for artificial disc replacement surgeries/procedures in the region.
The rising per capita income is likely to increase the affordability of patients for expensive surgical procedures, including artificial disc replacement surgeries. According to the World Bank, the GDP per capita of India increased from $1,345.8 in 2010 to $1,709.4 in 2016. A similar trend has been observed for other developing countries, such as Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, and Indonesia, which is contributing to the growth of the APAC artificial disc market.
Rise in the number of mergers and acquisitions among market players to attain a larger market share
Globally, the key players in the artificial disc market are acquiring other companies to gain a larger market share. For instance, in December 2017, NuVasive Inc. and SafePassage, a privately held provider of intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) services, entered into a definitive agreement, under which NuVasive Inc. agreed to acquire SafePassage. The acquisition aimed at strengthening NuVasive Inc.'s IONM business line, formed in July 2016, when the company acquired Biotronic NeuroNetwork (Biotronic) and combined its service offerings with its subsidiary namely, Impulse Monitoring Inc.
Further, In September 2017 NuVasive Inc, acquired Vertera Spine, a privately held medical device company developing and commercializing highly innovative inter-body implants for spinal fusion using the patented porous PEEK technology. The acquisition aimed at continuing NuVasive's commitment to pursue strategic opportunities for a larger market share.
Some of the other key players operating in the artificial disc market are AxioMed LLC, Simplify Medical Inc., K2M Inc., Spinal Kinetics Inc., Globus Medical Inc., Johnson & Johnson, B. Braun Melsungen AG, Zimmer Biomet Holdings Inc., and Medtronic PLC.
