The global arthroscopy fluid management disposables market size was USD 229.5 million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 347.7 million by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 9.7% during the forecast period.

In the last 10-15 years, there has been a considerable growth in popularity and adoption of arthroscopy procedures among orthopedic surgeons. A recent study conducted by the Arthroscopy Association of North America concluded that around 1.8-2 million arthroscopy procedures are being conducted in the U.S. annually at present. Advances in the equipment and devices used in the arthroscopy procedures, such as improvements in visualization, imaging, and fluid management combined with regulatory approvals and reimbursement available for expanded indications/procedures are factors that have significantly boosted the market's growth in recent years.

Declined Orthopedic Surgeries Due to COVID-19 Pandemic to Impact Industry

The increasing cases of COVID-19 around the world have significantly impacted the supply chain dynamics of orthopedic devices. Due to rising cases, many hospitals have suspended elective surgeries to accommodate COVID-infected patients. Based on a survey conducted in the U.S., almost 50% of surgeons, cardiologists, and anesthesiologists mentioned that they expect patients to either cancel or delay elective surgeries in the current pandemic scenario. This has led to a significant decline in the growth rate of the arthroscopy fluid management disposables market.

Increasing Adoption of Minimally Invasive Surgeries to Aid Adoption

Over the past few years, patients have increasingly started referring to web-based tools and online resources to avail information for specific diseases. Government initiatives for regulating the cost of different types of orthopedic surgery in the region combined with the increasing geriatric population can contribute positively to the arthroscopy fluid management disposables market growth. Increasing preference for minimally invasive surgical procedures in countries such as Germany, U.K, and Scotland is a trend witnessed in Europe.


Enhanced Treatment Capability and Adoption of Innovative Technologies to Spur Market Growth

Innovative technological advancements leading to enhanced arthroscopic procedures will continue to boost the market growth. Moreover, fluid management systems are expected to spur demand on account of their capability to optimize the visualization process. In July 2019, Smith & Nephew announced the first-ever prospective clinical trial results to evaluate the effectiveness of repairing Horizontal Cleavage Tears (HCTs) using Smith & Nephew's NOVOSTITCH Meniscal Repair System.

Furthermore, the growing adoption of the all-arthroscopic Latarjet (aL) procedure for managing recurrent shoulder instability is likely to offer lucrative growth opportunities for market players. In September 2019, researchers from Villa Maria Cecilia Hospital and Campus Bio-Medico University, Italy, reported that the arthroscopic Latarjet procedure is a potential solution for managing recurrent anterior shoulder instability.

Higher Prevalence of Traumatic Injuries to Propel Product Demand

A rapid rise in the incidence of musculoskeletal injuries leading to limited mobility & agonizing physical pain is the primary factor that is likely to drive the demand for arthroscopic fluid management products during the forecast period. According to a report published by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), about 6.8 million patients with orthopedic injuries come to medical attention each year in the United States alone.

Combined with this, a growing number of sports-related accidents and injuries are anticipated to the market's positive growth. For instance, according to the National High School Sports-Related Injury Surveillance Study 2017-2018, 1,367,490 cases of sport-related were recorded in high schools in the U.S. Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is a major injury in professional sports that can be treated by arthroscopy.


Declining Rate of Arthroscopic Knee Surgeries to Hamper Market Growth

Various studies have been published on the lack of keyhole knee surgery benefits on patients with degenerative knee conditions such as osteoarthritis. Recommendations by associations/agencies such as the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the British Orthopaedic Association are consistent with these studies' findings.

In the last decade, these studies and recommendations have resulted in declining arthroscopic knee surgeries in many countries. In England, the rate of knee arthroscopy procedures increased from 169/100,000 population in 1998 to 242/100,000 people in 2010. The procedure rate has steadily declined in the 2010-2016 period (the rate of knee arthroscopy procedures was 178/100,000 population in 2016).

Pump Management Disposables Segment to Hold Highest Market Share in 2019

Based on the product, the market for arthroscopy fluid management disposables is categorized into pump management disposables and gravity management disposables. The pump management disposables dominated the market in 2019. The increase in orthopedic surgeries has propelled the growth of the entire market. However, the technological advancement of sin pump management devices is projected to fuel the growth of the product's demand.

Gravity management pumps are highly adopted in developing countries such as China and India, owing to their lower cost and maintenance. Additionally, the limited availability of trained professionals to operate arthroscopy pump management devices has increased the adoption of gravity pumps in these countries.

By Application Analysis

Hospitals Segment Ruled the Market in 2019

Based on applications, the market for arthroscopy fluid management disposables has been segmented into hospitals, medical centers, and others. Among the applications, the hospital segment dominated the global market. This is mainly due to the presence of advanced facilities and rising healthcare infrastructure in hospitals. The hospital segment is anticipated to continue its dominance in the forthcoming years. This is attributed to the rise in the number of orthopedic surgeries performed in hospitals and the growing number of hospital visits by patients with orthopedic injuries.
