"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
The global orthopedic implants market size was USD 43.16 billion in 2020. The market is anticipated to grow from USD 45.30 billion in 2021 to USD 64.18 billion in 2028 at a CAGR of 5.1% in the 2021-2028 period. The global impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented and staggering, with these implants witnessing a negative demand shock across all regions amid the pandemic. Based on our analysis, the global market exhibited a huge decline of -10.87% in 2020. The sudden rise in CAGR is attributable to this market’s demand and growth, returning to pre-pandemic levels once the pandemic is over.
Orthopedic implants are medical devices that are used for the replacement of a damaged or a missed bone. These implants are surgically inserted in the body to treat or support a damaged bone or joint, further stabilizing the body posture. Growing geriatric patient populations around the globe, an increase in osteoporosis-related fractures, and the rise in this type of implant surgeries are the major factors likely to contribute to the market growth rate during the forecast period. According to a report by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) published in 2020, an estimated one in two Americans over age 50 is anticipated to be at risk of developing hip osteoporosis majorly due to the aging of the population and the prevalence of osteoporosis. The rise in osteoporosis is likely to accelerate the demand for products in the forthcoming years.
Decline in Revenues amid COVID-19 to Hinder Market Growth Opportunities
The COVID-19 outbreak placed an additional burden on healthcare systems globally. It had far-reaching societal and financial consequences and has altered the orthopedic landscape for the foreseeable future. Delays or cancellations in appointments and surgeries have had a massive impact on global market growth. Due to these impacts and measures, companies have experienced significant and unpredictable reductions in product demand and a decline in procedure volumes as healthcare customers divert medical resources and priorities towards treating COVID-19 globally. For example, due to pandemic Zimmer Biomet has seen a significant decline in their revenues and product volumes to around 12 percent.
Additionally, the U.K. National Health Service (NHS) had directed all hospitals in England to postpone non-urgent procedures for three months. Due to the COVID-induced lockdowns, the orthopedic implant sector witnessed a decline in the global market.

Technological Advancements in Orthopedic Implants to Bolster Market Growth
The Rising demand for customized joint implants is anticipated to boost the orthopedic implant market growth. Subsequently, each patient has a unique anatomy, the concept of “one size fits all” is not appropriate. Therefore, large medical device companies strive to leverage advanced technologies to manufacture patient-specific implants. For instance, In July 2020, Stryker announced a real intelligence brand enabling technology solutions and its new generation handheld robotics platform - the CORI Surgical System. Additionally, the institution of 3D printing technology to manufacture implants has resulted in a massive increase in demand for customized implants. Companies are on the rise to develop cutting-edge technologies that can supply technically advanced joint implants and upsurge market growth during the projected time frame. Furthermore, growing technological advancements in orthopedics, a rise in obesity, and the growing adoption of a sedentary lifestyle are likely to boost the demand for the product in the coming years. Also, rising investments in the research domain by key players in the development of minimally invasive & cost-effective implants are likely to boost the market growth during the forecast period.
Growing Prevalence of Orthopedic Injuries and Rapid Rise in Aged Population to Boost Market Growth
A rapid rise in the prevalence of orthopedic injuries and musculoskeletal diseases leading to restricted mobility & severe pain is likely to profoundly impact the patient's quality of life, adding a significant treatment cost burden. This factor may drive demand for orthopedic implants during the forecast period. As per the report published by the World health organization (WHO), in February 2021, around 1.71 billion people have musculoskeletal conditions globally. They are the biggest contributor to years lived with disability (YLDs) worldwide, with around 149 million cases, accounting for 17% of all YLDs worldwide.
Furthermore, there has been a significant rise in osteoporosis diseases characterized by low bone mass density and structural deterioration of bone tissue, accelerating the risk of hip and spine fractures. The increase in bone fractures due to osteoporosis around the globe is expected to fuel the demand for effective minimally invasive procedures using implants. Moreover, there has been a significant rise in the geriatric population, further augmenting the market growth. A rise in the aged population is likely to elevate the demand for joint replacement procedures, including hip and knee replacements. As per the Hindu Centre for Politics and Public Policy, in 2020, worldwide, there were around 727 million persons aged 65 years or above, and the share of the population aged 65 years or over is anticipated to rise from 9.3 percent in 2020 to around 16.0 percent in 2050. A consistent rise in the geriatric population, mainly above 60 years, is likely to develop degenerative disc diseases, osteoarthritis, and low bone density problems, likely driving the demand for implants significantly.
Growing Research & Development Investments and Increasing New Product approvals to Drive Market Growth
This market is becoming more competitive with growing implants to treat various musculoskeletal disorders and the increased introduction of advanced surgical solutions. Major key players in the market are adopting organic and inorganic growth strategies to maintain their market position. For instance, in September 2019, DePuy Synthes announced the CONDUIT Implants portfolio launch, including 3D printed Interbody implants accelerating spinal fusion. The launch of similar products by major players is likely to foster the spinal devices' market growth. Thus, increasing R&D investments and new product launches are expected to drive the orthopedic implants market growth during the forecast period.
High Costs Associated with Orthopedic Implant Procedures and Barriers to Price Transparency
Orthopedic procedures signify a large expense to the medicare program, and costs of implantable medical devices account for a huge proportion of those procedures costs. Even though the increasing incidence of orthopedic injuries and a rise in the geriatric population worldwide, the high cost of the procedure and post-surgical complications limit market growth. Some of the risks and complications of implants include infections and lack of a full range of motion that may restrain the market growth. Additionally, the lack of price transparency creates a barrier to the patients' ability. The complications associated with the use of the implant are a significant factor that is anticipated to hamper the market's growth in the coming years.
