Increasing per capita healthcare expenditure in developing countries has increased the diagnosis and treatment adoption rate for joint treatments having a positive impact on knotless suture anchors market growth.
How is the Increase in Geriatric Population Reshaping the Global Knotless Suture Anchors Market?
According to the United Nations, the geriatric population is expected to contribute 16% of the world’s population in the next 30 years as compared to 9% currently in 2019. This increasing geriatric population will observe an exponential growth rate and can contribute up to 25% of Europe or North America’s population. The geriatric population are more susceptible to shoulder or joint damage requiring arthroscopic procedures and knotless suture anchors. Also, there has been increasing healthcare spending among the ageing population leading to increasing demand for knotless suture anchors market. On the other hand, favourable reimbursement conditions lead to knotless suture anchors market growth.
What are the Key Challenges that may Restrain Growth of the Global Knotless Suture Anchors Market?
Tissue reactions as a result of arthroscopic procedures can restrain the growth of the knotless suture anchors market. Suture anchors can react with some patient’s tissue leading to complications and resistance towards product adoption hampering knotless suture anchors market growth. Preference for non-invasive therapeutics among the general population can harm knotless suture anchors market growth. On the other hand, less awareness of knotless suture anchors among the healthcare professional can lead to delay of knotless suture anchors market growth. The unavailability of advanced technology and poor healthcare infrastructure tends to challenge the growth of the knotless suture anchors market. Less number of medical device manufacturers in regions like the Middle East & Africa is expected to hinder the knotless suture anchors market growth.
