Based on product, the global bone glue market is categorized into

  • Synthetic bone glue
  • Methacrylate
  • Cyanoacrylate
  • Others
  • Natural Bone Glue

Bone glue is a type of collagen or gelatin derived from animal bones via collagen hydrolysis and a continuous boiling process. The bone glue thus formed forms a molecular bond with the glued objects. The sources of bone glue are bovine bones, rabbit bones, cartilage, and bones obtained from fish. Bone glue finds medicinal applications for treating arthroplasty, spine injuries, and other applications such as woodwork and bookbinding. Natural bone glue is the first choice and is dominating the products segment due to the easy availability of raw materials and compatibility with human connective tissues. The limitations of natural bone glue include susceptibility to microbial contamination, short open time, and thermal instability. Synthetic bone glue is going to be the trendsetter for the duration of 2015–2025 on account of its inherent features such as thermal stability, least risk of microbial contamination, and excellent bonding properties with the human connective tissues. Tier-1 players in the bone glue market are Baxter International, Inc., B. Braun Melsungen AG, C.R. Bard, Inc., Chemence Medical, Inc., Cohera Medical, Inc., Cryolife, Dentsply Sirona, Inc., Integra LifeSciences Corporation, Johnson & Johnson Private Limited, Luna Innovations, Inc., and Tissuemed Ltd.

Based on application, the global bone glue market is categorized into:

  • Arthroplasty
  • Sports Injuries
  • Spine Injury
  • Trauma
  • Others

Natural bone glue is 100% recyclable, contributing to environmental sustainability. Polymethylmethacrylate has excellent adhesive properties owing to its innate features, such as its capability for in situ curings, polymerization, and crosslinking with other methacrylate monomers. Additionally, antibiotics can be loaded in the polymethyl methacrylate matrix to reduce the risk of infection related to the prosthesis, thereby minimizing the risk of infection. Arthroplasty covers around 45% of the market share of the bone glue market as a result of the increasing number of osteotomy surgical procedures being performed for joint treatment and the rising demand for bone glue as a therapeutic supplement in musculoskeletal tissue suture repair. Spinal injuries and trauma are on the rise on account of the rising prevalence of osteoporosis in the geriatric population, the increasing number of motor vehicle accidents, and occupational hazards resulting in serious injuries to the joints.

For the purpose of this study, the global bone glue market is categorized into the following regional and country-specific markets:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • China
    • Japan
    • India
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
    • Brazil
    • Mexico
    • rest of Latin America
  • Middle East and Africa
    • GCC

The American Joint Replacement Registry, in its third annual report on hip and knee arthroplasty, cited that there have been a cumulative 427,000 procedures between 2012 and 2015. There has been an increase of 102% in arthroplasty procedures in 2015 in comparison to the previous year. Rapidly increasing establishments of orthopedic specialty clinics and rising demand for arthroplasty surgical procedures contribute to the consolidation of the North American bone glue market. The European bone glue market is influenced by the increasing number of motor accidents contributing to the severe spinal cord and joint injuries. As reported by the International Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis is responsible for hip fractures in Asia and the Pacific, with a huge prevalence in women. Poor diets devoid of calcium and magnesium and occupational hazards will result in the significant growth of the Asia Pacific bone glue market.
