Artificial Cervical Disc Market Forecast
The artificial cervical disc market is expected to cross ~USD 6,262.1 million by 2027 at a CAGR of ~19%.
Artificial Cervical Disc Market Overview:
An artificial cervical disc is a medical device designed to replace a natural disc in the neckthrough disc replacement surgery. It is an emerging procedure that replaces the function of a damaged or diseased spinal disc.These procedures will be helpful to eliminate pain caused by disc degeneration while maintaining mobility and function.
The increasing prevalence of orthopedic diseases and degenerative diseases, technological advancements in artificial discs, and the rise of a geriatric population in developed and developing economies areexpected to drive the artificial cervical disc market during the forecast period.In addition, the artificial cervical disc market is anticipated to grow duringthe forecast period due to the factors such as rising healthcare expenditure, supportive reimbursement, growing acceptance of implantation, increasing disposable income, andrising investments in healthcare infrastructure by the government and private sectors. However, lack of skilled personnel, government rules and regulations, high cost of implants, and availability of alternatives such as spinal fusion & traditional cervical discectomy are likelyto hamper the artificial cervical disc market growth.
COVID-19 Analysis of Artificial Cervical Disc Market
The emergence of the pandemic has affected people across the globe and resulted in the shutdown of operational facilities worldwide. The healthcare industry faced unprecedented encounters during the lockdown phase. The manufacturing units were shut down, affecting the production of medical products and other equipment. Also, the supply chain of the medical products was affected that led to the increase in warehouse inventory of the manufactured products. Moreover, the doctors & surgeons with personal clinics were facing tough times due to the closure of the operational facility. Likewise, 62% of healthcare practitioners in the US faced salary issues during the outbreak.
The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic is related to possible delay ofdisc replacement surgeries due to several factors such as reallocation of hospital resources like nursing staff and ICU beds for the care of patients with the coronavirusandthe cancellation of elective surgeries to reduce the chances of disease spread.
Artificial Cervical Disc Market Dynamics
DriversIncrease in prevalence of degenerative spine conditions across the globe
- The global artificial cervical disc market is receiving support from technological advancements.Increasing prevalence of degenerative spine conditions, growing hospitalizations & healthcare expenditures across the globe, supportive reimbursements, and sports and trauma-related accidents are becoming more common.An increase in the geriatric population is further driving the global artificial cervical disc market.
- In addition, innovations in technology, availability of numerous products, and growth in surgeries and medical procedures in the artificial cervical disc market are leading to the expansion of industries.
Opportunities:Increase inthe number of clinical trials on artificial discs
- Worldwide, there has been an increase in the number of clinical trials on artificial discs.
- For example, in March 2016,the Charité Artificial Disc (manufactured by DePuy Spine, Inc.) has been completed, and the study results have been submitted to the FDA. In November 2016,Spineart SA concluded thatBAGUERA C cervical disc replacement is a safe and effective procedure for treating radiculopathy caused by soft disc herniation. Some artificial discs have been studies in FDA-supervised IDE prospective randomized clinical trials, so lots of opportunities for artificial cervical disc market growth rise in recent years due to more number of artificial discs in the DE stage of development.
Restraints:High cost of the product
- Major factors hindering the artificial cervical disc market are a high cost of the product, lack of uniform reimbursement policies, and technological challenges faced by surgeons during replacement surgeries.
Challenges:Risk associated with surgery and medical procedures isa big challenging factor for the market playersArtificial Cervical Disc Market Segment OverviewBy Product Type
- Cervical disc:The cervical disc segment holds a significant artificial cervical disc market share and is anticipated to show a similar trend over the forecast period due to the rising prevalence of degenerative disc disease and the growing demand for non-invasive procedures are the key driving factors of the artificial cervical disc market segment.
- Lumbar disc: Rapidly growing geriatric patient pool suffering from orthopedic diseases andlow back pain among the geriatric andincreasing prevalence of low back pain will increase the demand for lumbar total disc replacement (LTDR) procedures, thereby boosting the lumbar disc segment growth
- Metal-on-metal material: The artificial cervical disc market segment is expected to attain significant revenue during the forecast period. Many healthcare practitioners, including doctors, surgeons,and clinicianshave been displaying a increasing preference for metal implants. Moreover,titanium alloys, zirconium alloys, cobalt-nickel-chromium-molybdenum, tantalum, and chromium-cobalt-molybdenum are some of the extensively utilized metal implants in artificial cervical disc surgeries. Metal-on-metal materials are being preferred due to their superior corrosion-resistant properties and considerably lower costs than metal-on-biopolymers.
- Metal-on-biopolymer: Industry players are focusing on developing metal-on-biopolymer artificial discs due to their advantages like better biocompatibility, high degree of rotation, and flexible movement of spine and insertion. The rising adoption of such advanced artificial discs for the treatment of degenerative disc diseases will accelerate the artificial cervical disc market growth during the forthcoming years.
