SeaSpine's common shares attained a 99% approval rate, while Orthofix's shares achieved a 98% approval rate for the merger.

Sacroiliac Joint Fusion Market Concentration & Characteristics

Companies invest substantial resources in R&D activities and regulatory submissions to obtain regulatory approval for pipeline products. This may result in increasing the cost of developing novel tumor ablation technologies.

The substitutes for sacroiliac joint fusion are platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, epidural steroid injections, and stem cell treatment. Among them, stem cells and PRP injections are a safe, effective, and natural alternative to SI joint surgery. These enable patients to avoid complications associated with surgery.

Market Dynamics

Moreover, the availability of technologically advanced devices and rapid development in healthcare infrastructure globally are anticipated to influence market growth. Growing awareness, availability, and adoption of minimally invasive surgical techniques is another factor propelling market growth. In addition, the growing participation in sports and physical activities directly impacts the growing number of sports injuries requiring medical assistance, which is expected to boost the market. For instance, according to The Johns Hopkins University, in the U.S., over 3.5 million children aged 14 and above suffer from sports injuries annually. These sports-related injuries are anticipated to drive market growth during the forecast period.

Clinical trial activities are pivotal in advancing medical treatments and technologies, particularly within the SI joint treatment market. These trials are crucial assessments of novel approaches and products, evaluating their safety and efficacy. Key aspects of these trials include investments in technological advancements, innovative product development, and the pursuit of less invasive treatment methods. Market players with robust product portfolios allocate significant resources to drive innovation, complemented by ongoing R&D efforts to enhance product offerings. Numerous clinical trial projects are underway, spanning a spectrum of investigational treatments and therapies, to improve the diagnosis & management of SI joint dysfunction.

Indication Insights

Degenerative sacroiliitis segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 38.6% in 2023. The key factors contributing to this growth include growing awareness about the condition, improving diagnostic capabilities for sacroiliac joint disorders, and a high prevalence of degenerative sacroiliitis. For instance, in March 2022, according to an article by the American Academy of Family Physicians, sacroiliac joint degeneration prevalence was 25.0% in adult patients. In addition, sacroiliac joint fusion surgery may be recommended in patients with chronic pain who fail to respond to conservative care. The high prevalence of contributing conditions to degenerative sacroiliitis and the increasing diagnosis rate is expected to fuel market growth.

Trauma segment is anticipated to witness the fastest market growth over the forecast period. Trauma in the context of pelvic ring injuries is another instance of sacroiliac joint injury. These include lateral compression, anteroposterior compression, and vertical shear-type injuries. Traumatic sacroiliac joint injuries may often need prompt surgical repair. The complexity, severity, and high incidence rate are expected to contribute to segment growth over the forecast period.

Treatment Type Insights

Surgery segment accounted for the largest revenue share in 2023. The increasing preference for minimally invasive surgeries due to the associated benefits, such as smaller incisions, reduced pain & scarring, and faster recovery times, is a major factor contributing to the high share of this segment. According to the Washington State Health Care Authority’s 2021 report, minimally invasive SI joint fusion surgery was more effective than open fusion for reducing pain. It is also associated with a shorter length of stay at the hospital. This, combined with the rising number of clinical studies using the MIS approach compared to the open approach, is further anticipated to drive the segment growth.

Radiofrequency (RF) ablation segment is estimated to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Radiofrequency ablation provides moderate pain relief and helps restore function for daily movements. Conventional continuous radiofrequency, pulsed, or water-cooled radiofrequency ablation may produce heat lesions to treat sacroiliac joint pain. Increasing awareness about sacroiliac joint pain & its treatment options, research initiatives, and prevalence of risk factors is expected to contribute to segment growth.

End-user Insights

Hospital segment dominated the market with a revenue share in 2023. Key factors contributing to the growth of this segment include a higher volume of surgeries performed in hospitals and a growing preference for minimally invasive surgeries. For instance, according to the American Hospital Association, there were around 6,129 hospitals in the U.S. in 2023. Furthermore, hospitals provide specialized, long-term care to patients. Moreover, treatments at these facilities are often reimbursed, driving their adoption.

Global Sacroiliac Joint Fusion Market share and size, 2023

Ambulatory surgical centers (ASCs) segment has been anticipated to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period, owing to the rising number of ASCs. For instance, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), in December 2022, there were around 458 Medicare-certified ASCs in Texas state, 183 in Washington, 468 in Florida, 848 in California, and 386 in Georgia. These numbers are anticipated to increase over the forecast period, supporting segment growth. In addition, these centers enable large volumes of surgeries in short periods, thus further driving the segment.

Regional Insights

North America dominated the overall sacroiliac joint fusion industry for the revenue share of  41.1% in 2023. The dominance can be attributed to advanced healthcare infrastructure, the presence of key companies, and growing reimbursement coverage. Key market players are involved in implementing strategic initiatives, such as conducting clinical tests of their products, regional expansion, patent applications, product launches, and partnerships & collaborations to increase their market share. For instance, in September 2021, PainTEQ was granted three patents for its abrading device used in the procedure, a drill-less method of stabilizing an SI joint, and an allograft implant, respectively, in the U.S. All three solutions are part of PainTEQ’s minimally invasive LinQ procedure for the sacroiliac joint.

U.S. accounted for the largest share of the sacroiliac joint fusion market in North America in 2023. Growing technological developments, initiatives by key companies, and reimbursement coverage are key factors expected to propel market growth. Growing technological developments, initiatives by key companies, and reimbursement coverage are key factors expected to propel market growth. In June 2020, Orthofix Medical, Inc., for instance, launched FIREBIRD SI Fusion System in the U.S. through a limited market release. The system comprises a 3D-printed titanium bone screw for minimally invasive implantation in treating SI joint dysfunction.

Sacroiliac Joint Fusion Market Trends by Region, 2024 - 2030

Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to a large patient pool, developing healthcare facilities, and investments by key regional companies. SI-BONE, Inc. reported the first iFuse procedures beyond its key markets of Europe and the U.S., in countries such as Canada, Israel, Japan, Australia, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and Turkey, thus expanding its regional presence. Company also reported a reimbursement advantage over its competitors, with over 35 payor exclusives and 300 million lives covered.

China held significant share in the Asia Pacific region in 2023. As China has the largest population in the world, with 1.4 billion as of June 2021, it is expected to have the highest number of people at risk of chronic lower back pain associated with sacroiliac joints. The country's availability and adoption of treatment options are estimated to increase over time. Minimally invasive SI joint surgery, for instance, is increasingly preferred over open SI joint fusion due to its complexity and prolonged recovery. It is an increasingly adopted surgical method for SI joint dysfunction.
