The worldwide joint-replacement implants market is expected to hit $20bn by 2022, according to a new report from Meddevicetracker. The growth is driven by the rising number of elderly patients, whose natural joints have been damaged by arthritis, and the rising prevalence of chronic diseases, such as obesity and diabetes, and sport-related injuries. But a look at the market and the three largest segments – shoulder, knee and hip replacements – show that new technological advancements and improved surgical techniques are increasingly making joint replacement surgeries an option for younger people as well. Here's an overview and key insights from two orthopedic surgeons on the current market and key growth drivers and limiters.
Permira has signed a deal to acquire a majority stake in orthopedics group Corin from a group of investors for an undisclosed price.
