Wellesley, Mass., September 23, 2014 –BCC Research (www.bccresearch.com) reveals in its new report, JOINT RECONSTRUCTION AND REPLACEMENT: MATERIALS, TECHNOLOGIES, AND GLOBAL MARKETS, the global market for joint reconstruction and replacement is expected to increase to nearly $16.2 billion by 2018, registering a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.2% from 2013 through 2018. The U.S. occupies the largest share among the major regions, surging at a CAGR of 5.1%.
Revision and partial joint replacement procedures will improve the growth of the market due to the number of younger aged patients in need of these procedures. A broadening patient base, which includes younger patients below 55 years of age and elderly patients above the age of 80, will increase the demand for hip and knee replacement procedures. On the other hand, growth rates in average implant price are expected to be constant or negative in the range of -1% to -2% during the same period.
The U.S. market is estimated to reach over $10.3 billion by 2018. The European and Japanese markets are anticipated to reach $4.5 billion and $1.3 billion by 2018, at CAGRs of 3.3% and 1.4%, respectively.
“Knee replacement procedures will continue to grow faster than hip replacement procedures because of the increasingly active aging population,” says BCC Research healthcare analyst Dr. Ritu Thakur Dangi. “Although shoulder and small joint replacement procedures are low in numbers, they are expected to grow at a higher growth rate than the other segments due to the increasing awareness and availability of cost-effective procedure options.”
