"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
The global orthopedic joint replacement market size was USD 20.80 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 22.28 billion in 2023 to USD 37.99 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 7.9% during the forecast period.
Osteoarthritis is one of the most prevalent diseases among the geriatric population. Joint replacement has emerged as the most popular option for the treatment of osteoarthritis, which has resulted in a wider acceptance of joint implants among patients. A notable rise in the geriatric population is supplementing the orthopedic joint replacement market growth due to the increasing incidence of hip fractures in the elderly population. According to an article published in Agappe in November 2022, 260,000 to 300,000 individuals are estimated to be hospitalized each year for hip fractures in the U.S. By 2040, the number is estimated to reach 500,000.
With the introduction of robotic surgery and patient-specific 3D printed implants, the demand for orthopedic joint replacement implants has drastically increased, which is further augmented by support from regulatory bodies. For instance, in April 2023, Moximed received the marketing approval for its MISHA Knee System. This product is aimed at helping people effectively manage knee osteoarthritis. The market is also being favored by active government support and patient-friendly health reimbursement policies.
Decline in Orthopedic Surgeries amid COVID-19 Hindered Market Growth
Declines, delays, or cancellations in elective surgeries, such as those for orthopedic joint replacement had a huge impact on the global market growth. According to the CJRR Annual Report 2020-2021, the number of knee and hip replacement surgeries in Canada decreased by 26.4% and 12.9% respectively during 2020-21. This was mainly due to the cancellation of planned surgeries owing to COVID-19 related restrictions.
Moreover, according to GlobalSurg, the estimated volume of normal elective orthopedic surgeries during March 2020 – May 2020 should have been around 7.7 million. However, the pandemic led to an 82% cancellation of these surgeries during the peak period. Additionally, the U.K.’s National Health Service (NHS) had directed all hospitals in England to postpone non-urgent elective procedures for 3 months starting from April 15.
Due to the COVID-induced lockdowns, the pharma sector witnessed disruptions in supply chains due to the limitations on imports & exports, closure of flights, reduced production, and disturbed supply channels. The market was anticipated to witness a surge in 2021, and is expected to grow steadily during the forecast period.

Furthermore, the introduction of 3D printing technology to manufacture orthopedic implants has resulted in a huge surge in demand for customized implants. Many orthopedic device companies are developing cutting-edge technologies that can be used to supply advanced joint implants, which is likely to favor the market growth during the projected timeframe.
Advancements in Robotic Surgeries to Boost Demand for Joint Replacement Devices
The adoption of surgical robots in the field of orthopedics has increased the efficiency of surgical procedures and thus, many hospitals are now offering robotic surgeries for the treatment of various orthopedic diseases. Several manufacturers are focusing on developing surgical robots that can be used in spinal fusion surgeries along with the company’s implants and navigation tools.
For instance, in November 2021, Smith+Nephew introduced CORI handheld robotics to assist in both total and partial knee arthroplasties. This advanced system is designed to enhance the skill sets of the orthopedic team. Additionally, in January 2019, Medtronic announced the launch of Mazor X Stealth Edition, a robotic system for spine surgery. The system can be used with the company’s spinal implants and navigation & 3D imaging tools, providing a comprehensive solution to healthcare professionals.
Product Recalls and Lawsuits on Orthopedic Devices to Hamper Market Growth
The volume of orthopedic joint replacement surgeries is increasing exponentially. However, complications associated with the use of the implants are a major factor that is anticipated to hamper the growth of the market in the coming years.
Additionally, product recalls of knee and hip replacement devices by major players around the globe are also estimated to hinder the growth of the market. According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), from 2003 to 2019 there were more than 13,000 recalls of knee replacement components and systems. The highest number of recalls was recorded by Zimmer Biomet, followed by Johnson and Johnson Services Inc., and Smith & Nephew.
Knee Segment to Hold Dominating Position Owing to High Number of Procedures
On the basis of product, the market is categorized into knee, hip, shoulder, ankle, and others. The knee segment dominated the orthopedic joint replacement market share in 2022. Increase in the number of knee replacement procedures, which include total knee replacement procedures, robot-assisted knee replacement surgeries, and launch of products, such as ATTUNE Revision Knee System, Persona Partial Knee System, JOURNEY II XR Total Knee by key manufacturers are the factors responsible for the strong growth of the knee segment during the forecast period. For instance, in January 2022, Symbios Orthopédie S.A. launched the ORIGIN CR Total Knee System. This system allows surgeons to proceed with custom-made knee replacement surgery preserving the Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL).
Furthermore, the rapidly increasing prevalence of chronic knee-related diseases has boosted the number of knee replacement surgeries being performed across the world. For instance, according to the American Joint Replacement Registry 2022 Annual Report, the number of knee arthroplasty procedures between 2012 and 2021 had reached 1,495,965.
The shoulder segment is projected to register a strong growth rate owing to the shifting focus of manufacturers toward shoulder implants. Also, rapid increase in the number of shoulder replacement surgeries performed globally is anticipated to boost the sales of shoulder implants during the forecast period. For instance, according to a study published in the NCBI in November 2021, the number of primary shoulder replacement surgeries was estimated to grow significantly in the coming years, reaching at least 37,000 procedures per year.
