Industry Insights

The global trauma devices market size was valued at around USD 6.9 billion in 2017 and is anticipated to exhibit a CAGR of 6.1% over the forecast period. The market is majorly driven by a dramatic rise in geriatric population across the globe and alarming surge in number of road accidents. Severe fracture cases resulting from falls and mishaps among elderly population is expected to contribute to the growing demand for fracture fixators.

U.S. trauma devices market

Around 40.0% of trauma injuries are as a result of falls and motor vehicle accidents. Elderly population as well as children below the age of seven are more prone to falls. Motor vehicle accidents account for over 28% of trauma injuries. This is a key factor benefiting the global market.

Dynamic investments in R&D activities pave the way for introduction of innovative trauma solutions. Depuy Synthes, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson (J&J) manufacturing medical devices, invested around USD 1.6 billion in R&D activities in 2015. The company spent USD 1.65 billion and USD 1.78 billion on the same in 2014 and 2013, respectively.

The market is also fueled by technological advancements, with leading players introducing array of products through extensive research capabilities and expanding their segment portfolio through partnerships with other players. For instance, in July 2017, Cardinal Health acquired the patient recovery business from Medtronic for USD 6.1 billion. The acquisition helped expand Cardinal Health’s portfolio by adding 23 product categories, including segment leader brands such as Kendall, Curity, Kangaroo, Dover, and Argyle.

Type Insights

Internal fixators held majority of the market in terms of revenue in 2017. Internal fixation involves healing and stabilization of broken bones with the help of screws, plates, rods, and others. Demand for internal fixators is rising owing to shorter hospital stay, less scarring and bruising, and early functionality for patients. Acumed’s wrist fixation implants, including Acu-Loc and Acu-Loc 2, achieved sales of 0.5 million in July 2016.

The external fixators segment is expected to register the highest growth over the forecast period. External fixator stabilizes damaged bones, thereby speeding up the healing process. The procedure is generally performed during treatment of open fractures. Moreover, external fixators are preferred in case of fractures in children as permanent internal fixators are not viable in growing bones.

Surgical Site Insights

Based on surgical site, the trauma devices market is segmented into upper and lower extremities. The upper extremities segment is expected to grow at a rapid rate owing to factors such as increased physical and sports activities among people 18 years or less, resulting in rise in sports-related injuries. Upper extremities include injury to the hand, wrist, shoulder, arm, and elbow.

The lower extremities section dominated the market by surgical site in 2017 due to increase in number of motorcycle accidents, causing severe injury to the ankle, foot and thigh. Causes for lower leg injuries can be blunt force trauma and stress in the Achilles tendon, which causes impairment in its functioning.

End-use Insights

The market is classified into hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers based on end use. Hospitals dominated the overall market in terms of revenue in 2017. On the other hand, ambulatory surgery centers are likely to experience the fastest growth over the forecast period. Ambulatory surgical centers offer treatment facilities to patients at lower costs and greater flexibility of scheduling as compared to hospitals. Also referred to as same-day surgery centers, these medical facilities discharge patients after minor surgeries.

Regional Insights

North America held a majority of the overall market in 2017 due to high rate of accidental injuries and a large geriatric population. Various trauma centers established by governments are specialized in handling emergency situations and thus create a defined market for trauma devices.

Global trauma devices market

Asia Pacific is expected to be the most lucrative segment over the forecast period, with India expected to spearhead the growth. Rising geriatric population in Japan and China, alarming rise in road accidents, and rapidly developing economies are among factors expected to promote the market in Asia Pacific. Demand for surgical staples in this region is mainly driven by medical tourism for bariatric and other minimally invasive surgeries.

Trauma Devices Market Share Insights

Some of the key players operating in this market are Depuy Synthes, Stryker, Zimmer Biomet, Smith & Nephew, Wright Medical Group N.V., Integra LifeSciences, Acumed, Bioretec Ltd, and Cardinal Health. These companies are investing in R&D activities in order to capitalize on untapped markets. In addition, some of the players are opting for acquisition of smaller players to expand and strengthen their geographical reach. For instance, in May 2013, Smith & Nephew acquired Adler Mediequip Pvt. Ltd. to mark its footprint in India. The deal was aimed at providing the company an entry point in the booming Indian market.

Industry players are involved in comprehensive manufacturing of trauma devices, including internal and external fixators. In June 2018, DePuy Synthes announced the launch of Femoral Recon Nail System in U.S. for treatment of thigh bone fractures, expanding the company’s trauma portfolio for patients suffering from hip and femur fractures. In May 2018, the company announced a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of Medical Enterprises Distribution, LLC, a developer of surgical impactor technology, to further develop surgical impactor technology for orthopedic surgical procedures.
