The joint replacement market in India grew in double digits between 2007 and 2014. The joint replacement market comprises Total Hip Replacement (THR), Total Knee Replacement (TKR), partial knee replacement, partial hip replacement, shoulder joint replacement and other small joint replacement surgeries. Of these, THR and TKR account for the bulk of revenues.
The key factors fuelling the growth of joint replacement surgeries in India are an increasing number of trained joint replacement surgeons, aging population, sedentary lifestyle, rising health care expenditure, improved healthcare infrastructure and medical tourism. Improved implant designs and a wide choice of implants have also helped surgeons choose the implant that best suits the needs of each patient.
As per ABMRG's study, in India most people above 60 years suffer from some kind of bone and joint disease and many of them have an immediate need for joint replacement surgery. High prevalence of arthritis primarily in north and south India and increasing prevalence of osteoporosis among post-menopausal women in urban areas who follow a sedentary lifestyle have stimulated the growth of the joint replacement market. Availability of trained orthopaedic surgeons and improved facilities in hospitals have also increased the number of patients opting for joint replacement surgeries. Unlike in western countries, in India the fear of failure of surgery and post-surgery infections among the patients do not affect the joint replacement market as most patients are ignorant about complications and history of product recalls.
India has also witnessed a boom in medical tourism over the years due to longer waiting time for joint replacement in European countries, very limited availability of doctors with expertise in joint replacement procedures in Africa and the Middle East and low procedure costs for joint replacement surgeries in India. In addition to cost benefits, a large number of NRIs prefer to get the procedure done in India as they have high level of confidence in Indian surgeons' expertise.
The Indian joint replacement market is packed with local and multinational companies. Despite higher prices and a history of product recalls, MNCs dominate the Indian market due to surgeons' preference and patients' desire for imported implants. In mid to long term, we expect local companies to steal the market share from MNCs. However, MNCs are anticipated to lead the rally at least for another decade.
The key players in the India joint replacement market are Aesculap, a division of B. Braun Melsungen AG; Biomet, Inc.; Orthovasive, a division of Biorad Medisys Pvt. Ltd; DePuy Medical Pty. Ltd, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ); Exatech, Inc.; Maxx Medical Pvt. Ltd; Smith & Nephew plc (NYSE: SNN; LSE: SN); Stryker Corporation (NYSE: SYK) and Zimmer Holdings Inc (NYSE: ZMH,Nasdaq: ZMH).
