"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
The global bone void fillers market size was valued at USD 2.88 billion in 2021. The market is projected to grow from USD 3.27 billion in 2022 to USD 4.98 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period. The global COVID-19 pandemic has been unprecedented and staggering, with experiencing lower-than-anticipated demand across all regions compared to pre-pandemic levels. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a decline of -8.9% in 2020 as compared to 2019.
Bone void fillers (BVF) are absorbable, biocompatible, bioactive, and osteoconductive biologic materials that are used to fill gaps and voids of the skeletal system such as the extremities, posterolateral spine, and pelvis. The biologic material provides stability and increases cell proliferation, resulting in the enhancement of bone regeneration for multiple types of orthopedic applications.
The bone void fillers market growth is attributed to the increasing prevalence of various bone diseases such as bone tumors and bone infections. Moreover, a growing geriatric population prone to fractures and bone injuries is anticipated to propel the demand for products to treat these injuries in the coming years. Furthermore, the growing demand for antibiotic eluting fillers for bone and the rising number of new product launches by market players are expected to boost the market growth during the forecast period.
In September 2021, Orthofix announced to launch Opus Mg set, a magnesium-based settable bone void filler for orthopedic procedures. Such a product launch is expected to increase the market revenue in the long term.
COVID-19 Negatively Impacted the Market Revenue Due to Canceled and Delayed Elective Surgeries
The emergence of COVID-19 has declined the demand for fillers used for bones due to cancellation and delayed elective orthopedic surgeries. Key market players recorded a significant decline in their revenues due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The restrictions imposed by the government, resulted in the declining number of surgeries, disruptions in supply chains, and other major parameters, impacted the sales of synthetic fillers, Demineralized Bone Matrix (DBM), and other fillers used in bone injuries, especially during the first half of 2020. In terms of revenue, the market witnessed a decline of 8.9% in 2020.
For instance, according to the study published by NCBI in June 2021, trauma surgeries decreased by 21.2% to 66.7% and elective orthopedic surgeries by 33.3% to 100%, while patient visits to these surgeries decreased by 37.7% to 74.2%.
The market players witnessed a significant decline in revenue generated during 2020. For instance, Zimmer Biomet recorded net sales of USD 7.03 billion in 2020. Net sales decreased by -12.0% compared to 2019 due to the deferral of elective surgical procedures from the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, in 2021, elective surgeries, such as orthopedic surgery and trauma surgery, started resuming as the regulations imposed by the government across various countries were relaxed. The patients and surgical volumes bounced back, owing to the factors such as strong guidelines and COVID-19 protocols in public places and dismissal of restrictions for travel. This led to the increased demand for fillers in 2021.

Increasing Focus toward the Launch of Antibiotic Eluting Bone Void Fillers to Drive Market Growth
Clinical limitations such as bone infection during the procedures have increased the focus on the adoption of antibiotic eluting void fillers. The market players are focusing on increasing R&D activities and the subsequent launch of antibiotic eluting void fillers, which have also reduced bone infection during treatment.
BONESUPPORT AB has received approval for antibiotic eluting void fillers in the market, and it also has a significant number of pipeline products. Furthermore, the growing focus of market players on clinical trials to introduce products for the treatment of bone diseases is expected to fuel the market.
For instance, in June 2021, Elute, Inc. announced that the company received its first clinical trial authorization from the U.S. FDA to use its antibiotic eluting void filler product. This was the first FDA authorization to use EP Granules with Tobramycin in patients to treat bone infections.
Such innovative product introductions are anticipated to fuel the growth of the market during the forecast period.
Increasing Adoption of Synthetic BVF to Boost Market Growth
The increasing adoption of synthetic bone void fillers such as calcium sulfate and tri-calcium phosphate is expected to drive market growth. There are several advantages associated with these fillers, such as the less risk of morbidity, high sterility, and an infinite supply of these types of fillers instead of other sources of bone graft substitutes, leading to an increase in the demand during the forecast period.
Synthetic bone void fillers are composed of tri-calcium phosphate, which is an osteoconductive calcium phosphate and is considered to have the most similar chemical composition to human bone and is increasingly used as bone void fillers.
Key players such as BONESUPPORT AB and Biocomposites launched their products in the synthetic segment. These companies have experienced strong growth in recent years due to the increased adoption of their products. Recently, these companies have received approvals for their products and have been marketed across several countries in Europe.
For instance, in 2020, BONESUPPORT AB received the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for CERAMENT BVF to use as a void filler for bone.
Such product launches are expected to drive the growth of the market over the forecast period.
Growing Burden of Bone Diseases & Other Bone Related Incidents to Drive Market Growth
The increasing prevalence of bone-related diseases such as bone tumors and osteomyelitis is driving the growth of the market. Additionally, other types of trauma, bone lesions, and bone fractures also require the administration of bone void fillers.
For instance, according to the American Cancer Society, Inc, the estimated number of diagnosed cases of primary bone cancer will be 3,910 in 2022, which is expected to fuel the product demand in the forecast timeframe.
The major application area of these fillers is in treating chronic osteomyelitis. This disease is a clinical challenge for orthopedic surgeons. However, using void filler with antibiotic properties is safe, reliable, and effective in treating contamination.
Such a high incidence of bone-related diseases is expected to boost the market growth in the coming years.
Under Penetration and Certain Clinical Limitations of Bone Void Fillers to Limit Market Growth
The growing clinical limitations and under penetration of bone void filling material led to a reduction in their adoption. This reduced adoption is due to the high risks associated with them that include adverse tissue reaction, incomplete bone formation or lack of bone formation, infection of the soft tissue and bone, and breakage of the fillers with or without particulate formation.
The growing risks associated with these fillers have led to product recalls by the U.S. FDA, which negatively impact the brand image and position of the market players.
According to various researchers, autogenous and allograft bone transplantation is still a commonly performed procedure, thereby limiting the adoption of these fillers. Moreover, the invasive nature of these fillers could limit their adoption across the globe.
