Market Overview

The global joint replacement market is expected to witness a CAGR of 4.52% during the forecast period. Certain factors that are driving the market growth include the increasing prevalence of osteoarthritis, the rising cases of orthopedic injury, and an increasing geriatric population.

Osteoarthritis plays a steller role in driving the joint replacement market by influencing the procedure volume. According to data provided by the Arthritis Foundation, in 2017, about 54.4 million adults in the United States had doctor-diagnosed arthritis. Along with this, osteoarthritis is the most common type of arthritis in the United Kingdom, predicted to affect nearly 9 million people. The rising incidences of symptomatic osteoarthritis and post-traumatic arthritis are due to the growing aging segment of the population across the world.

Other factors, such as an increasing geriatric population and a number of orthopedic injuries are also expected to drive the market over the forecast period.

However, the cost of this procedure is becoming a major hindrance for the growth of the joint replacement market in developing and the underdeveloped countries. According to the research article “The Cost of Joint Replacement”, published in 2018, the total cost per hip replacement was USD 22,076, whereas total cost per knee replacement was USD 29,488.

Additionally, the presence of alternative methods is also restraining the market’s growth.

Scope of the Report

Joint replacement surgery is performed most frequently to replace joints, which involves the complete or partial removal of the damaged joint and tissues, to be replaced with new, man-made parts. The purpose of such a procedure is to relieve pain and restore a sense of normal function and mobility into the damaged joint. These joint replacement surgeries are predominantly suggested for patients undergoing severe pain and disability as a result of progressive arthritis. The devices for joint replacement surgeries include implants, grafts, and all oher instruments related to joint replacement procedure.

Key Market Trends

Knee Replacement is Expected to Hold a Significant Market Share in the Procedure Segment

The knee replacement segment is the leading segment, expected to witness major growth during the forecast periods, owing to the rising burden of the geriatric population, the growing prevalence of osteoarthritis and other chronic diseases like osteoporosis, and diabetes. Total knee arthroplasty (TKA), also known as total knee replacement, is one of the most frequently performed orthopaedic procedures. Along with this, several studies have revealed the improvement in functionality after knee arthroplasty in the obese population. Data from “The Second Australian Atlas of Healthcare Variation” showed that 53% of total knee replacements in Australia are due to obesity, as obesity puts excess pressure on weight-bearing joints.

The Market is Dominated by North America and is Expected to Remain the Same in the Forecasted Period

Owing to the presence of well-established healthcare facilities, the rise in geriatric population in the region, and certain other factors, like the rising number of orthopaedic procedures, North America is likely to dominate the joint replacement market. In general, hip, knee and other joint replacement procedures are among the most common elective surgeries in the United States. The average age of patients undergoing hip replacement operations although continues to decrease, but more men are undergoing these operations than in the past, according to a study presented at the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons' annual meeting. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, by 2030, total knee replacement surgeries are projected to grow 673% to 3.5 million procedures per year. This high projected number is indicative of the likely market growth during the forecast period. In addition, the market is also driven by the presence of all the leading manufacturers of the studied market.

Competitive Landscape

The market is highly competitive and consists of a number of major players. Companies like Stryker Corporation, Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc., Depuy Synthes (Johnson & Johnson), Smith & Nephew ,and Wright Medical Group, among others, hold the substantial market share in the Joint Replacement market.

Various developments have recently been taking place in the market, such as in October 2018, when Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc., started working with Apple by using the Apple Watch and iPhone to change the patient journey for two of the most common surgeries Americans undergo each year: knee and hip replacement. This collaboration further led to the development of Zimmer Biomet mymobility™, an app that uses the Apple Watch to facilitate a new level of connection between patients and their surgical care teams, in order to impact the journey patients experience when they undergo these procedures.
