North America smart orthopedic implants market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacted the overall joint replacement market including smart orthopedic implants with reduced demand and sales. This resulted from deferred or canceled elective procedures, operational challenges in conducting clinical trials, supply chain hurdles, and reduced sales and marketing activities. Key market players reported a decline in sales, especially during 2020. Stryker, for instance, reported about a 9.1% decline in net revenue compared to 2019. Zimmer Biomet witnessed a revenue decline of around 11% during 2020 compared to the previous year. The pandemic notably impacted the knee replacement sales as the procedure is deemed less urgent compared to hip replacement.

Zimmer Biomet reported continued decline/volatility in elective surgical procedures across the globe in 2021 due to the pandemic. In Q3 and Q4 2021, in particular, the highly contagious Delta and Omicron variants resulted in the further postponement of elective procedures. Staffing shortages at hospitals were identified as another adverse impact by the company that further led to the deferral of elective procedures. However, the market is anticipated to recover with the resumption of elective surgeries. Elective procedures are projected to return to pre-COVID numbers as their underlying causes remain unchanged.

These factors are estimated to contribute to the total addressable market growth during the forecast period. Many public and private health institutions have released guidelines to support the resumption of surgeries, such as those released by the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA). Rising R&D initiatives and product enhancements are other key factors contributing to the total addressable market growth. This is due to the growing demand for smart orthopedic implants that offer better utility, reliability, consistency, efficiency, and safety. Market players are also involved in developing new technologies and expanding product applications. Zimmer Biomet, for instance, plans to expand its connected digital portfolios from smart knee to hip and extremities joint replacement.

Application Insights

On the basis of applications, the global smart orthopedic implants total addressable market has been further categorized and segmented into the knee, hip, and others. The knee application segment dominated the global market in 2022 and will maintain the leading market position throughout the forecast years. The segment accounted for the maximum share of more than 47.00% of the overall revenue in 2021. On the other hand, the hip application segment is estimated to register the fastest growth rate during the forecast years. One of the key factors contributing to the fast-paced growth of this segment includes the increasing prevalence of knee & hip disorders.

In addition, the rising product advancements and incorporation of digital technologies in the existing line of joint replacement products are projected to support the growth of this segment. Stryker’s acquisition of OrthoSensor in 2021, for instance, was a move to develop smart sensor technologies and implants to empower orthopedic surgeons with data-driven solutions and bolster the company’s digital ecosystem. The growing number of knee and hip replacement procedures is another key market driver. As per the OECD, over 184,000 total knee replacement procedures were performed in Germany in 2018. This number increased to over 188,000 procedures in 2019.

Component Insights

On the basis of components, the global market has been segmented into implants and electronic components. The electronic components segment is estimated to grow at the fastest CAGR of more than 6.20% during the forecast period. The segment comprises sensors and software that make an implant “smart”. This includes additional capabilities, such as remote patient monitoring, tracking of relevant parameters to support post-operative care, and clinical decision-making. Persona IQ smart knee, for instance, is embedded with the canturio-te & CHIRP System developed by Canary Medical.

It allows patients and physicians to track parameters, such as walking speed, cadence, step count, range of motion, etc. The implants component segment accounted for the highest share of the global revenue in 2022. This is attributed to the high cost of implants, availability of products, and initiatives by market players. Large multinational companies are operating in the joint replacement implants market including Stryker, Zimmer Biomet, Depuy Synthes, Microport, B. Braun, Corin, and others. These companies are involved in deploying various strategic initiatives to increase their market presence and share.

Procedure Insights

On the basis of procedures, the global market has been categorized into total replacement, partial replacement, and others. The total replacement procedure segment dominated the global market in 2022 and accounted for the maximum share of more than 55.00% of the overall revenue. The key factors that contributed to the high market share of this segment include the increased prevalence of orthopedic diseases, a high number of joint replacement surgeries performed, and technological advancements. The Persona IQ Smart Knee by Zimmer Biomet, for example, is indicated for patients undergoing a cemented total knee arthroplasty procedure.

The partial replacement procedure segment, on the other hand, is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The others segment comprising revision and resurfacing replacement procedures is also projected to grow notably in the coming years. This is due to a notable number of total replacement surgeries failing over time due to failed or worn-out implants, thus leading to the need for revision replacements. Revision procedures are performed to relieve discomfort and enable recovery in the motion. As per information provided by the Arthritis Foundation, annual knee and hip revision procedures are expected to reach 120,000 and 72,000, respectively, by 2030.
