Rising awareness of sports coupled with growing indulgence in outdoor activities of youngsters as well as ageing population has led to increase in incidence of sports injuries. Moreover, rise in ageing and obese population has concurrently led to increase in prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumor and others. All the aforementioned factors are responsible for fuelling the growth of arthroscopic procedures, resulting in overall growth of arthroscopic devices market.
Lack of reimbursement and unfavorable taxation policies of the U.S. and European governments have negatively affected the growth of this market. Cost containment for healthcare sector with introduction of the Patient Protection and Affordable Healthcare Act in the U.S. are expected to be the major impediments for growth of arthroscopic devices market. The European region, still grappling with the Euro crisis, is expected to have the slowest growth during the forecast period. The OEMs are now struggling to remedy their balance sheets through expansions in emerging economies such as India, China and Brazil. Rising disposable income, growing awareness of sports and favorable government policies has boosted the total growth of this market. Companies are profoundly investing on R&D to come up with innovative products that are user friendly for the physicians. Moreover, to retain their market position companies are coming up innovative marketing strategies such as cross selling of arthroscopic products along with other orthopedic procedures. In addition, few companies are also providing rental services of their arthroscopic devices to various hospitals to gain cost arbitrage. For instance, Conmed has initiated a rental program for small hospitals that have not been able to justify high costs of the arthroscopes.
The arthroscopy devices market was valued to be USD 3.3 billion in year 2012 and is expected to grow at a growth rate of 6.0% from 2013 to 2019.
