Report Overview

The global orthopedic implants market size was estimated at USD 35.3 billion in 2022 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2% from 2023 to 2030. The growing prevalence of reduced bone density, weakened bones, & musculoskeletal disorders and the rising risk of degenerative bone disorders drive the demand. Moreover, the availability of advanced orthopedic implants and rapid development in healthcare infrastructure globally are anticipated to influence growth positively. Growing awareness and availability of minimally invasive surgical techniques owing to the multiple benefits these surgeries offer is another key driving force responsible for market growth.

U.S. Orthopedic Implants market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

In addition, growing participation in sporting & physical activities directly impacts the growing number of sports injuries requiring medical assistance, which is expected to impact market development. However, the availability of alternative medical treatment solutions, such as physical therapy, corticosteroids, NSAIDs, and rehabilitation exercises, is restraining market growth to a certain extent. The demand for minimally invasive procedures is growing as these procedures result in fewer traumas & quicker recovery than invasive ones. As the recovery time is shorter, patients’ hospital stay is reduced, resulting in lower costs associated with surgery & hospital stay.

For instance, in the case of knee replacement surgeries, traditional open surgeries involve making a vertical incision of about 8 to 10 inches to expose the joint. This can be attributed to the increasing sophistication and cost of replacement knees, hips, & other devices and implants used in orthopedic surgeries. Hence, the availability of a wide variety of minimally invasive treatment options and increasing adoption of minimally invasive surgeries drive market growth. The advent of COVID-19 had a significant influence on the demand for these devices on a worldwide scale. The cancellation of surgical treatments, especially bone implantations, had a direct influence on the global demand for implants.

Participants in the business saw a decline in their income from implant sales due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, major market competitors are switching from offering expensive implants to a more common type, keeping lower costs. For instance, Conformis went from selling its more personalized versions of these devices during the lockout to selling its cost-effective, lesser-priced bone implants. In addition, few orthopedic healthcare organizations-such as the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS)-developed stringent guidelines for surgeons to follow to reduce the risk of infection, which had a significant role in the decline in using these devices.

In addition, orthopedic specialists saw a noticeable drop in patient visits during the lockdown. Medical procedures were being postponed, particularly elective ones, to halt the spread of COVID-19. In addition, important producers in the industry reported significant revenue losses during the pandemic due to the lockdowns and disruptions in product distribution. The market is anticipated to witness significant growth owing to factors including the increased risk of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, the growing geriatric population, the rising number of trauma cases due to traffic accidents and sports injuries, and changing lifestyles.

The increase in the use of orthopedic devices, issues with low bone density, the introduction of biodegradable implants and internal fixation devices, and the increase in the number of patients in their middle age choosing orthopedic implants are other factors driving the market growth. This demand has attracted orthopedic implant developers to develop newer biomaterials and improve the performance of existing materials in terms of corrosion resistance, biocompatibility, and lesser wear.

Product Insights

The product type segment includes lower extremity implants, dental implants, spinal implants, and upper extremity implants. The lower extremity implants segment dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 54.1% in 2022. This can be attributed to the rapidly rising number of knee surgeries, hip replacement surgeries, adoption of unhealthy lifestyles, and increasing prevalence of musculoskeletal & bone degenerative disorders. Furthermore, incorporating online tools for patients who underwent hip surgeries is expected to drive the segment. Patients refer to online and web-based tools to gain information about certain disorders. Several private companies and government institutions are launching apps and websites offering information to people.

Biolox Inside, AAOS Access, OrthoBullets, Insights Orthopedics, and Touch Surgery are some of the applications/websites available. Joint replacement is one such area witnessing the introduction of several online tools that can help patients receive post-surgical information regarding their surgeries and help them communicate with their surgeons. The dental implants segment is anticipated to record the fastest CAGR of 9.8% over the forecast period owing to the increasing incidence of dental injuries arising from accidents, trauma, and sports injuries. These implants serve as restorative treatment solutions, preserving natural bone and providing a secure foundation for a prosthesis.

In addition, orthopedic implant surgeries can require specialized post-operative care, making hospitals the most suitable institutions to offer thorough, round-the-clock medical attention. The outpatient facilities segment is expected to witness the fastest growth rate of 6.5% over the forecast period. These facilities are emerging as the fastest-growing segment in the market, primarily driven by advancements in medical technology and shifting healthcare trends. Outpatient facilities, such as ambulatory surgical centers and outpatient clinics, are gaining popularity due to their cost-effectiveness and convenience.

Patients increasingly prefer outpatient procedures for orthopedic implants, owing to the reduced hospitalization costs and shorter recovery times. In addition, minimally invasive treatments have expanded the scope of outpatient orthopedic surgeries, allowing quicker procedures with fewer complications. Moreover, outpatient facilities often have more streamlined processes, enabling patients to schedule surgeries more flexibly. As healthcare providers continue to invest in these facilities and regulations support outpatient orthopedic surgeries, this segment is expected to experience sustained growth, offering a compelling alternative to traditional hospital-based procedures.

Regional Insights

North America accounted for the largest revenue share of 47.9% in 2022 owing to the increasing incidence of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, growing geriatric population, rising number of trauma cases due to traffic accidents & sports injuries, and changing lifestyles. Moreover, a rise in healthcare expenditure across the globe and an increase in the applications of 3D printing in the healthcare sector support market growth. The regulatory compliance requisites and the high capital investment requirement restrict the entry of new players into the market.

Orthopedic Implants Market Trends, by Region, 2023 - 2030

Asia Pacific is anticipated to grow at the fastest rate of 7.7% during the forecast period.
