Joint Replacement Market

Global Joint Replacement Market is anticipated to grow with an elevated CAGR of around 4% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Joint Replacement surgery is an orthopedic surgery performed for replacing the arthritic or dysfunctional joint. The main objective of such procedures is to relieve pain and restore a sense of normal function & mobility in the damaged joints. The joint replacement market is expected to grow owing to the rising prevalence of various orthopedic diseases coupled with a rapidly growing geriatric population. According to the United Nations, the 60+ aged population is expected to double again by 2050 and reach nearly 2.1 billion worldwide. Some of the most common orthopedic diseases among the elderly population are arthritis, lateral epicondylitis, ligament injuries to the knee, etc. Moreover, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 29.3% of adults aged 45 to 64 years, reported doctor-diagnosed arthritis, and almost 50% of older people aged 65 years or older, reported doctor-diagnosed arthritis. Owing to these glaring stats, there is a rapid increase in the number of orthopedic surgeries which in turn will significantly impact the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Type, knee replacement segment holds the major share”

Based on the type, the joint replacement market is segmented into knee replacement, hip replacement, ankle replacement, elbow replacement, and others. The knee replacement segment accounted for a significant market share in 2020 and it is estimated that it will grow rapidly during the projected timeframe. The segment is anticipated to grow on account of the growing geriatric population giving an upsurge to old-age disorders such as osteoporosis, arthritis, etc. In the United States, over 600,000 knee replacements are performed every year, as per the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.

“Amongst Fixation Type, cemented segment holds the major share”

Based on fixation type, the joint replacement market is divided into cemented, cementless, and hybrid. The cemented segment occupied the major share of the joint replacement market in 2020 and it is expected to grow with a substantial CAGR in the upcoming years. The growth of this segment can be attributed to the rising demand for this type of fixation among older people as cemented fixation has good survivorship and low revision rates in comparison to others.

“Amongst End-Users, hospitals segment holds the major share”

Based on end-users, the market is fragmented into hospitals, orthopedic clinics, and others. In 2020, the hospitals segment grabbed a considerable market share, and it is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of this segment is attributed to the increasing preference of patients to undergo orthopedic surgical procedures in hospitals owing to the well-established infrastructure, presence of trained healthcare professionals, and advanced devices. However, orthopedic clinics are also likely to witness lucrative growth during the forecast period.
