The value of the total U.S. market for bioabsorbable trauma devices that are used to treat bone fractures has decreased in 2016. The decline is expected to persist throughout the forecasted period and will be driven by both decreasing units and sliding ASP. Contrary to initial expectation, bioabsorbable fixation devices have not been able to compete adequately with metal devices ever since their introduction. In fact, given their weaker holding strength, bioabsorbable fixation devices are restricted to applications in small bone fractures, largely in the foot and ankle. Along with this limitation, the limited demand for bioabsorbable fixation devices by surgeons, who are more familiar with metal components, is expected to continue to suppress both unit sales volume and ASP over the forecast period.

Existing technology limits the use of bioabsorbable materials to smaller devices, such as pins and screws. Overcoming the issue with soft tissue reaction makes larger devices more feasible and allows for their use in a greater number of indications.

In 1984, bioabsorbable internal fixation devices were used at Helsinki University for the first time as a treatment for fractures and osteotomies of the extremities. Metal plates and screws remain the standard for use in internal fixation, despite the associated risks, including increased infection rates due to bacterial colony formation on the plates, bone atrophy due to stress-shielding (particularly in long bones) and the introduction of growth problems in growing patients. Metal plates and screws must often be removed, requiring a second surgery and exposing patients to the risks of surgery for a second time.
