The global orthopedic implants market size was valued at USD 45.19 billion in 2023 and is anticipated to grow from USD 47.38 billion in 2024 to USD 71.74 billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast (2024-2032). North America accounted for a market value of USD 25.12 billion in 2023. Orthopedic implants are devices used to replace or support a damaged bone. These are mostly made up of metallic alloys such as stainless steel, titanium & cobalt-based alloys, and polymers. The rising prevalence of orthopedic disorders and the increasing number of orthopedic procedures are anticipated to surge the demand for these devices. Moreover, the rising geriatric populations prone to osteoporosis and an increased risk of bone conditions are expected to increase the patient pool for diagnosis and subsequent surgical procedures for these implants.

According to a report published by the Journal of Orthopedic Surgery and Research in 2021, osteoporosis cases are around 18.3% globally. The condition was predominantly found in women (23.1%) than men (11.7%) affected by the condition.

Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic negatively impacted the market owing to the postponement of elective procedures. During the pandemic, the restrictions imposed resulted in the cancellation of medical treatments, particularly elective ones, which reduced the number of procedures performed among patients. This, along with raw material shortages and supply chain disruptions experienced by manufacturers, caused a decline in the revenue margins of these market players.

Orthopedic Implants Market Trends

Innovation in Orthopedic Implants to Support the Growth of the Market

An increasing number of patients suffering from orthopedic disorders is resulting in the growing demand for implants. Also, the rising focus on innovation in orthopedic implants, including the launch of tailored implants, is enabling orthopedic experts to utilize various approaches to fit an implant. Innovations, such as portable navigation to guide the surgeon through the implantation, completely remote robot-assisted orthopedic surgery, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) powered guidance software to assist the surgical procedures will have increasing applications in the market.

Moreover, 3D printing in the production of specialized implants to develop a multi-layered composite implant is one of the primary market trends in producing these devices, with various key players investing in the technology.

  • For instance, in March 2023, Curiteva, Inc. received FDA 510(k) approval for its Inspire 3D Porous PEEK HAFUSE Cervical Interbody System. It’s a 3D printed PEEK implant manufactured by the company’s own Fused Filament Fabrication 3D printer.

  • In March 2023, Invibio Biomaterial Solutions launched Peek-Optima Am filament, an implantable polyetheretherketone polymer, for the manufacturing of 3D-printed medical devices. The launch of these filaments is likely to support the growing manufacturing for these products in the market.

The increasing support of governments globally toward domestic manufacturing and the development of innovative medical devices such as implants is anticipated to support the uptake of these innovations, thereby fostering the market for orthopedic implants.

Orthopedic Implants Market Growth Factors

Increasing Geriatric Population and Prevalence of Orthopedic Diseases to Augment Market Growth

With the growing geriatric population globally, the prevalence of orthopedic diseases, such as arthritis, fractures, bone deformities, and others, is also increasing.

  • According to a 2022 article published by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), about 8.9 million fractures occur due to osteoporosis each year globally.

  • Also, an article published by the World Health Organization (WHO) in October 2022 estimated that the global geriatric population to increase from 1 billion to 1.4 billion people by 2030. 1 in 6 people is expected to reach 60 during this period.

The increasing geriatric population and a higher risk of bone fractures due to fragility and other bone conditions are expected to increase orthopedic procedures during the study period. The increasing number of orthopedic procedures and various government initiatives to enable reimbursements for the patient population are anticipated to drive the demand for these devices.

  • For instance, according to a report published by the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery in 2021, the average reimbursement by the Medicare program for orthopedic procedures was reported to be 10.5% of the treatment cost. The increasing coverage offered to the patient population is also contributing to the orthopedic implants market growth.

This factor, coupled with the rising prevalence of osteoarthritis and other bone-related disorders, is projected to augment the market growth.

Increasing Investments in the Development of Novel Implants to Support Market Growth

Increasing competition and growing demand for bone implantations encouraged major market players to invest in developing novel implants, focusing on customization.

  • For instance, in January 2023, Trabtech, a medical technology company, announced a seed investment and research fund of around USD 1.4 million (€ 1.3 million). The funding aimed to be used for research and development of new implants in the orthopedic and pediatric fields.

Domestic players are raising investments by industry stakeholders to launch novel implants. A rising number of product launches catering to the increasing demand for implants is anticipated to support the market's growth.


High Cost of Orthopedic Implants along with Side Effects Associated with these Devices to Hamper Market Growth

Many studies have demonstrated side effects of orthopedic implants post-surgery, such as implant rejection, septic arthritis, and osteomyelitis, caused due to bacteria Staphylococcus and allergies due to metallic degradation. These side effects are understood to create health risks among patients, which may adversely affect the market's growth.

  • For instance, an article published by Medscape in 2022 reported that bone implants cause a negative immune response, which may cause excessive inflammation, healing interference, and fibrous encapsulation around the affected surgical area. These effects may cause implant rejections and the need to undergo revision procedures.

Moreover, the high cost of the orthopedic procedure increases the total expenditure of the patient undergoing surgery. The high cost, coupled with revision procedures to be conducted in a few years depending on the wear of the implant, may decrease the adoption of the implant, which may further impede the market growth.

  • For instance, according to a 2023 article published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), the total cost of knee replacement surgery ranges from USD 15,000 to USD 70,000.

Thus, the high cost of implants and accompanying side effects associated with implantations may hamper the market growth.
