Furthermore, the increasing incidence of orthopedic injuries, including fractures, musculoskeletal traumas, and degenerative bone diseases, serves as a major driving force. Due to growing ageing population in the world population, there is an increasing demand for bone screw systems for fracture repair and orthopedic procedures. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 1.71 billion individuals globally suffer from musculoskeletal disorders such as low back pain, neck pain, fractures, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis among various injuries.

In addition, according to the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, degenerative joint disease affects around 50% of adult individuals over 65 in the U.S. The disorder is associated with pain, loss of function, and decreased stamina, that can lead to weight gain and other impacts.

Furthermore, the rapid development of healthcare infrastructure in developing countries, coupled with increasing awareness of orthopedic treatments, contributed to rising demand for bone screw systems. These sectors have witnessed the surge in orthopedic procedures, which is contributing to bone screw system market expansion.

Bone screw system refers to a set of medical implants designed for orthopedic applications, specifically for the stabilization and fixation of bone fractures, injuries, or surgical procedures. The system typically includes various components such as screws, plates, and other fixation devices that are surgically implanted into bones to provide stability, alignment, and support during the healing process.

Bone Screw System Market Trends

The market is experiencing several notable trends that are shaping its growth and development. Factors such as continuous technological innovations in materials and design, growing adoption of telemedicine and remote consultations, and surging demand for minimally invasive surgical techniques, among other factors are propelling the industry growth.

  • Further, there is a growing trend toward minimally invasive surgical instruments in orthopedics, including the use of smaller and specialized bone screw systems. These systems support less invasive procedures, leading to reduced trauma, quicker recovery times, and improved patient outcomes.
  • Moreover, the integration of digital technologies and surgical navigation systems is becoming more prevalent in orthopedic surgeries. Surgeons use advanced imaging and navigation tools to plan and execute procedures accurately, enhancing the precision of implant placement, including bone screws.

Based on screw type, the bone screw system market is segmented into cannulated screws, cortex screws, cancellous bone screws, lag screws, and headless compression screws. The cannulated screws segment accounted for 45.3% market share in 2023 and is anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period.

  • Cannulated screws offer improved surgical precision due to the ability to navigate and guide the screw placement with a guide wire. This enhances accuracy, especially in challenging anatomical locations, and allows surgeons to achieve optimal positioning for fracture fixation and joint stabilization.
  • Moreover, the hollow design of cannulated screws enables their insertion over a guide wire, minimizing the need for extensive soft tissue dissection. This reduces soft tissue damage during surgery, resulting in less postoperative pain, faster healing, and improved overall patient outcomes.

Based on application, the bone screw system market is segmented into lower extremity, spinal fusion, upper extremity, and other applications. The lower extremity segment accounted for 49.5% business share in 2023.

  • Sports-related injuries often include fractures and ligamentous injuries related to lower extremities. The growing participation in sports activities contributes to the demand for bone screw systems designed for lower extremity applications, especially in athletes requiring surgical intervention for injury management.
  • Additionally, the lower extremities are commonly subjected to joint-related issues, such as degenerative conditions and osteoarthritis. Bone screw systems play a crucial role in joint reconstruction and arthrodesis procedures for conditions like ankle arthritis, contributing to the overall market demand.

The bone screw system market by end-use is categorized into hospitals, orthopedic clinics, and ambulatory surgical centers. The hospitals segment accounted for around USD 903.2 million revenue size in 2023.

  • Hospitals, especially those equipped with emergency services and trauma centers care facilities, frequently handle cases involving fractures and traumatic injuries. Bone screw systems are essential in these emergency scenarios, contributing to the hospital's preparedness for orthopedic emergencies.
  • Additionally, well-equipped hospital infrastructure and surgical capabilities contribute to the efficient conduct of orthopedic surgeries. Hospitals invest in state-of-the-art operating rooms and surgical equipment, to enhance the quality of orthopedic procedures, thereby, contributing to increased demand for bone screw systems.
