Disc refers to a soft cushioning structure made of cartilage-like tissue, situated between the individual bones of the spine. An artificial disc, commonly known as spine arthroplasty device or disc prosthesis, is a device implanted into the spine to emulate functions of a normal disc. These compressible discs, that are primarily made of metal or biopolymer, or a combination of both, aid in retaining movement and flexibility. Artificial disc is a rapidly growing segment of the spinal implants market.
 

Artificial Disc Replacement (ADR) is an incredible step in the evolution of spinal surgery. Charite, the first disc implant used in total disc replacement, was created in Germany in 1982. Further, Fernstrom created and implanted the first cervical artificial disc prototype in 1966. Size constraints, proximity to the spinal cord and functional complexity of the intervertebral disc led to slow development of cervical arthroplasty as well as its implementation in the clinical practice. Focus on cervical disc arthroplasty underwent a resurrection in the 1990s.
 

In 1991, the first generation of Cummins-Bristol ball-and-socket, a metal-on-metal type implant was developed, that required excessive disc space distraction during insertion and led to subsequent facet joint separation. Later, a new type of metal-on-plastic artificial disc was invented by Bryan to overcome the drawbacks of initially available discs. In January 2000, the first Bryan cervical disc was implanted, wherein, around 6000 patients were treated with these procedures. Moreover, several artificial discs have been evaluated in the FDA-controlled IDE prospective randomized clinical trials. Large number of new artificial discs in the IDE stage of investigation have led to several opportunities for industry growth over the past few years.

Increasing prevalence of orthopaedic diseases in developed as well as developing economies is the key factor that will drive artificial disc market revenue during the forecast period. Degenerative disc diseases (DDD) are often attributed to upright and bipedal locomotion that exerts mechanical stress on the vertebral column. DDD is directly co-related with age. High adoption of sedentary lifestyle coupled with increasing number of baby boomers worldwide prone to various musculoskeletal diseases will thus accelerate the market growth.
 

Rising awareness among people regarding technologically advanced spinal discs coupled with high demand for minimally invasive surgeries will serve to be another key driver that will surge the artificial disc business growth. Development of advanced products such as Mobi-C multi-level artificial disc will fuel its adoption in patients having issues at two consecutive spinal disc.
 

Moreover, cervical-total disc replacement (C-TDR) procedure has proved to be clinically superior in almost all parameters in clinical trial as compared to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion. This will increase adoption of disc replacement surgeries among the patient population, thereby boosting the market growth. However, high out-of-pocket spending required for artificial disc replacement procedures may hamper industry growth during the forthcoming years.
 

Growing adoption of cervical artificial discs in radiculopathy or myelopathy will attribute to market progress

Artificial discs are segmented into cervical and lumbar artificial discs. Lumbar artificial disc market segment is estimated to witness around 18% CAGR over the forecast period due to rapidly growing geriatric patient pool suffering from orthopaedic diseases. Low back pain (LBP) is one of the major disabilities among the geriatric population that limits functionality and decreases the quality of life. Increasing prevalence of LBP will increase the demand for lumbar total disc replacement (LTDR) procedures, thereby boosting the lumbar artificial disc segment growth. Growing applications of LTDR procedure in patients with discogenic pain and degenerated lumbar spine will further spur the market size.
 

Biocompatibility and ease of insertion offered by metal-on-biopolymer artificial discs will escalate business growth

Based on material, the segment is divided into metal-on-metal and metal-on-biopolymer. Metal-on-biopolymer market was valued over USD 1.5 billion in 2019 and is projected to show similar trend during the forecast period. The growth is attributable to the advantages offered by metal-on-biopolymer disc over the metal-on-metal disc such as better biocompatibility, high degree of rotation, flexible movement of spine as well as easy insertion. Industry players are mainly focusing on development of metal-on-biopolymer artificial discs owing to its aforementioned advantages. Rising adoption of such advanced artificial discs for treatment of degenerative disc diseases will accelerate the market growth during the forthcoming years.

North America held more than 50% of total artificial disc market share in 2019 and is estimated to show significant growth over the analysis period. Growing prevalence of degenerative disc diseases in the region due to high adoption of sedentary lifestyle is the key factor that will spur the market size.
 

U.S. artificial disc demand accounted for around USD 800 million in 2019. Market size is attributed to rising prevalence of DDD and surge in number of people undergoing disc replacement procedures in the country. Strong foothold of key industry players in the U.S. will subsequently increase the demand for new and advanced devices among people, thereby driving the regional market growth during the forthcoming years. Moreover, partial government support for disc replacement procedures due to its advantages over the traditional methods will further augment the regional artificial disc industry growth.
