Based on the material type, the global artificial joints market is segmented as follows:  

  • Ceramics
  • Alloy
  • Oxinium
  • Others

Artificial joint is a compatible device that is surgically implanted to replace a natural joint to correct join abnormalities and to enhance join function. Different types of materials such as alloys (CrCo-based alloy, Ti-based alloy), ceramic (alumina, zirconia, silica, hydroxyapatite, titanium nitride, silicon nitride), Oxinium and polyethylene (ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, cross-linked polyethylene) used to prepare artificial joints. However, currently combination of materials such as metal-on-metal, metal-on-ceramic, ceramic-on-ceramic, ceramic-on-metal, metal-on-polyethylene and ceramic-on-polyethylene trend is observed in the market.

In the base year 2015, ceramic implant held the largest market share in the global artificial joints market and it is anticipated to grow further during the forecast period. Factors such as reduced risk of osteolysis, chemical inertness, resistance to corrosion, non-allergic properties and biocompatibility would drive the market growth of ceramic artificial joints market. However, factors such as slow crack growth and brittleness may negatively impact the market growth of ceramic artificial joints. In the recent years, the use of alloys and polymers for total hip and knee replacements has increased significantly. Factors such as hardness, corrosion resistant, good resistance and high mechanical strength contribute the market growth of alloy artificial joints. Currently, titanium alloys are widely used as these are biocompatible, highest corrosion resistant, lower density and also elastic in nature. Artificial joints of polymer material will show steady market growth in future; factors such as low friction coefficients and good chemical stability would contribute the market growth. Oxinium is a metal alloy with owning to its surface hardness, no risk of brittle fracture, lighter weight properties oxinium it will show significant market growth during forecast period.

Artificial Joints Market

Based on applications, the global artificial joints market is segmented as follows:

  •  Artificial Joints of Knee
  • Artificial Joints of Hip
  • Artificial Joints of Shoulder
  • Others

Joint replacement is a surgical procedure in which metal, plastic or ceramic device is surgically implanted into body. Factors such as growing aging population consequently increasing incidence of age related diseases such as arthritis, upsurge in funding by government agencies and private organizations for joint replacement surgeries, growing population and sedentary lifestyle which in turn results in obesity contribute to the growth in number of joint replacement surgeries.

In the base year 2015, knee joint replacement was observed as the largest revenue generating segment. According to American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS), more than 0.8 percent of Americans are living with a hip replacement, and 1.5 percent with a knee replacement. Prevalence of total knee replacement and total hip replacement is higher among adults aged 50 and older. According to AAOS prevalence of hip and knee replacement surgery is the highest in geriatric age 80 and older, is as high as 6 and 10 percent, respectively. Knee and hip replacements are the most commonly performed joint replacement surgeries among the ankle, shoulder, wrist and elbow replacement surgeries. It is observed that knee replacement held the largest share in the global artificial joint market and is anticipated to grow significantly further during the forecast period. Factors such as increase in the prevalence of overweight and obesity, rising geriatric population and increasing incidence rates of osteoarthritis and arthritis drive the market growth of knee and hip join replacement market.  

Artificial Joints Market

For the purpose of this study, the global artificial joints market is categorized into:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America (LATAM)
  • Middle East and Africa (MEA)

Artificial Joints Market

In the base year 2015, North America was dominating artificial joint market in terms of revenue and it is anticipated to further grow during forecast period 2016-2024. Factors such as rising geriatric and obese population, upsurge in funding by government agencies and private organizations in healthcare system, increasing incidence of osteoarthritis, arthritis and other musculoskeletal diseases, high healthcare expenditure, continuous R&D activities pertaining to the development of novel artificial joints drive the market growth of artificial joints market in North America. Many studies indicated that incidence of adults younger than age 65 undergoing total knee and hip replacement surgeries contributing the market growth in North America. According to American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) more than 7 Mn Americans are living with artificial (prosthetic) hip and knee. California, Florida and Texas are major revenue contributing regions in North America. Joint replacement surgery performed on knee, hip, ankle, wrist, shoulder, and elbow joints. However, among these, knee and hip joint surgeries are most commonly performed globally. Europe is the second largest revenue generating regional market for artificial joints. Factors such as increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries, higher cost of replacement device and growth in health expenditure drive the market growth in Europe. Austria, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland are major revenue contributing countries in Europe as these countries have the highest rate of knee and hip replacement surgeries. Currently, Asia Pacific is not a major revenue generating segment and it is anticipated that it will experience a sluggish growth during the forecast period. Factors such as increasing population, continuous economic development and developing healthcare infrastructure contribute the market growth in Asia Pacific.
