Why there is Growing Adoption of Arthroscopic Meniscal Surgeries?

Menisci are semi-lunar shock-absorbing cartilages between the femur and tibia. Meniscal surgeries take roughly an hour and include a few minor incisions. It takes a few weeks to recover and rehabilitate. The surgery can help reduce pain, enhance mobility and stability, and help get back to normal activities.

As per a report published in the Journal of Experimental Orthopedics in June 2021, a survey was conducted among ESSKA members that led to an analysis of the national trend in Arthroscopic Partial Meniscectomy (APM) and meniscus repair procedures in their respective countries (France, Belgium, Germany, and Japan).

It was concluded that:

  • In France, APM decreased by 21.4% while the repair rate increased by 320% between 2005 and 2017.
  • In Belgium, APM decreased by 28.6% between 2007 and 2017.
  • In Germany, APM decreased by 30% while the repair rate increased by 55%.
  • In Japan, APM decreased by 91% to 75% while meniscal repair procedures increased from 9% to 25% between 2011 and 2016.

Therefore, Menisci has been a major focus area for arthroscopists, and currently, meniscal repair surgery of the knee is the most common less-invasive arthroscopic surgery and products, as it is highly effective and successful leading to good results.

Will Rising Prevalence of Musculoskeletal Disorders Strengthen Demand for Arthroscopy Products?

As per a World Health Organization (WHO) report in 2021, nearly 1.71 billion people worldwide are suffering from musculoskeletal conditions, with low back pain being the leading cause of disability in around 568 million people.

Increasing prevalence of musculoskeletal conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, back and neck pain, and bone fragility that affect the locomotor system such as muscles, joints, bones, and associated tissues can be diagnosed and treated with arthroscopic devices, which will drive demand for arthroscopy products.

Why is Application of Arthroscopy Products Increasing in Sports Medicine?

The arthroscopy market largely centers around sports and other physical activities where injuries are common. Owing to the benefits such as less muscle damage, faster recovery, and faster rehabilitation, arthroscopic treatment is being preferred over traditional surgeries.

Arthroscopic devices in the field of sports medicine are anticipated to provide huge opportunities to key players. Top suppliers of arthroscopic instruments are focusing on improving visualization with high-definition cameras, providing superior suturing techniques, and making customized suturing materials for specific applications.

According to the National Health Statistics report 2016, globally, around six million injuries occur in children and teens annually, out of which, one-third are sports-related. Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is regarded as a career-ending injury for professional athletes; however, with the advent of arthroscopy, ACL injury is reconstructed, allowing athletes to return to pre-injury activity levels.

Country-wise Analysis

Will the U.S. Remain a Key Market for Arthroscopy Products?

In 2021, the U.S. is estimated to account for over 94% value share in North America.

Its dominance is driven due to increasing application in sports medicine, rising prevalence of osteoarthritis, new product launches, and ease in FDA clearance. These factors are driving demand for knee arthroscopy in the U.S.

Why is Germany Considered a Lucrative Market for Arthroscopy Products in Europe?

Germany accounts for 33.9% of the market share in Europe in 2021.

Demand for arthroscopy products is burgeoning at a mounting pace in Germany, primarily due to factors such as broad medical applications, technological advancements, and rising preference for minimally invasive surgeries for knee replacement and other injuries.

What are the Growth Opportunities for Arthroscopy Product Suppliers across China?

The China market is expected to account for over 9% CAGR throughout the forecast period.

In China, there is a rise in geriatric population along with increasing cases of rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis, rising consumer income, increasing government initiatives, new product launches, and growing funding for life science research, which may affect current and future market trends.

Growing product penetration, rising health awareness, and latest innovations in shoulder arthroscopy are major factors driving market growth.

Category-wise Insights

Why Do Arthroscopic Implants Lead This Market Space?

In terms of product, arthroscopic implants will continue to hold highest share of 66.1%.

Arthroscopic implants greatly reduce the size of incisions needed to perform procedures, less scarring once the surgery site heals, and also reduce the risk of infection as the wounds are significantly smaller.

Which Procedures Contribute to Market Expansion?

In terms of procedure, knee arthroscopy procedure accounted for 46.9% of the market share in 2020. This latest trend in arthroscopes and visualization systems is expected to continue during the forecast period as well.
