Industry Trends

Craniomaxillofacial Devices Market size valued at over USD 1.4 billion in 2019 and is expected to witness more than 7.2% CAGR from 2020 to 2026. Rise in number of sports related injuries, falls from high ground, facial injuries caused due to traffic accidents, violence, assaults, and motor car accidents are some of the major factors driving the global market growth. Furthermore, increase in preference of patients and healthcare professionals for minimally invasive craniomaxillofacial surgery will boost the market revenue.

The minimally invasive surgical procedures offer several advantages while conducting reconstruction surgeries. The advantages such as faster rehabilitation and recovery, minimal blood loss and pain and shorter hospital stays will augment the industry growth. The demand and need of traditional open surgery is gradually shifting towards the use of minimally invasive techniques for trauma and reconstruction surgeries. Hence, several advantages offered by invasive surgeries owing to introduction of newer technologies will play important role in enhancing the craniomaxillofacial devices market size. However, high cost of craniomaxillofacial surgeries will be one of the major market impeding factors. It is a multi-specialty procedure and requires participation of several speciality surgeons such as neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons, as well as dental surgeons hence, resulting in making the overall procedure quite expensive.

The craniomaxillofacial implants fall under Class II devices of the U.S. FDA regulations. Class II devices are moderate risk devices and are required to meet special controls along with general controls such as labelling requirements. The global COVID-19 pandemic has changed the practice of oral maxillofacial surgeries (OMS). According to an article published in the National Centre for Biotechnology and Information, surgeons around the world have postponed some of the oral surgeries. During this pandemic, elective surgeries have been cancelled or postponed decreasing the risk of patients being exposed to COVID-19 in hospital, thereby supporting the hospitals in converting operating theatres into intensive care units.

Growing number of people suffering from craniomaxillofacial injuries caused by motor vehicle accidents, domestic accidents, work-related accidents, violence, and sports, etc. will drive the market expansion. Out of all the factors, one of the primary causes of craniofacial trauma is road traffic accidents. According to the recent statistics published by the World Health Organisation (WHO), around 1.35 million people die due to road traffic accidents every year. Most of these accidents result in causing in severe traumatic injuries to the face and cranium, requiring craniomaxillofacial devices to surgically treat them. Non-fatal road traffic accidents are also one of the major problems leading to hospitalizations or even permanent disability to major population each year.

Frequent use of MF plate and screw fixation system will spur the craniomaxillofacial devices market growth

MF plate and screw fixation system segment revenue exceeded USD 970 million in 2019. The use of plate and screws is done in the craniomaxillofacial injury treatment as they provide the necessary tensile strength, rigidity, and effectiveness for early bone recovery. Increase in number of craniomaxillofacial surgery procedures, growing R&D activities resulting in manufacturing of technologically advanced products, growing geriatric population and minimally invasive devices will boost the industry size expansion.

Increase in demand and preference for customized and patient-specific implants

The craniomaxillofacial devices market for customized/patient-specific implants is poised to witness more than 7.8% growth till 2026. Anatomically shaped patient-specific implants allow customization of implants according to anatomy of the patient. Customized implants emphasize on providing personalized healthcare, to ensure that each patient receives the best treatment. The 3D printed craniomaxillofacial implants are constructed from the patient’s CT scan data. These are designed individually for each patient to reconstruct skeletal bone defects and enhance skeletal features.

Several advantages offered by internal fixators will boost the market growth

Internal fixators segment dominated more than 75% market share, with over USD 1 billion revenue in 2019. Rise in use of internal fixators by the healthcare professionals to reduce the complications during and after the surgery by minimizing soft-tissue disruption will enhance the craniomaxillofacial devices adoption. Several advantages offered such as enabling patient to recover fasters, shorter hospitals stay, etc. will result in higher use of internal fixators, thereby influencing the industry demand.

Recent developments in manufacturing of bioabsorbable materials

Bioabsorbable segment is estimated to register growth rate of 7.8% through 2026. The application of bioabsorbable craniomaxillofacial implants is becoming quite frequent and popular in craniomaxillofacial surgeries. The market for bioabsorbable craniomaxillofacial implants are expected to grow swiftly over the coming yeras due to its greater efficiency in fixation of fractures as well as for soft-tissue fixation, gradual load transfer to the healing facial tissue, reduced need for implant and associated parts removal, and radiolucency, which facilitates postoperative radiographic evaluation.

Rising trauma reconstruction surgeries will boost the craniomaxillofacial devices market demand

The trauma reconstruction surgery segment valuation surpassed USD 550 million in 2019. Trauma reconstruction surgery involves treating a wide range of conditions to repair and reshape facial and mandibular structures affected by birth defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, injuries, tumours, and disease. Increase in use of craniomaxillofacial devices in trauma reconstruction will fuel the adoption rate of the craniomaxillofacial devices.

Resorbable fixators segment is predicted to expand at 7.7% CAGR during the forecast period. Problems pertaining to the use of metal material for fixation resulted in the advent of resorbable materials. The resorbable fixators were initially developed to avoid the need of secondary surgery for implant removal. The resorbable fixators consists of plates, screws, and meshes that are used to repair the craniomaxillofacial fracture. Also, these fixator materials have several advantages such as fast, easy, convenient, and safe to use. The resorbable implants dissolve in the body within 12 months.

Presence of state-of-the-art-facilities in hospitals along with the skilled healthcare professionals will impel the market expansion

The hospitals segment held around 60% craniomaxillofacial devices market share and crossed USD 841 million valuation in 2019. The major reason for high market size and surgery procedure number is the availability of technologically advanced products, modern care and recovery units, intensive care units and post-surgical support along with skilled healthcare professionals.

Presence of skilled professionals and recent technologies will propel the market growth

The reconstruction surgery devices segment revenue was around USD 935 million in 2019. Reconstructive surgery devices involve the use of devices that are primarily needed for plastic reconstructive surgeries. These devices are used for the reconstruction of inherited or developed craniomaxillofacial defects due to congenital abnormalities, tumour resection, and infections. Autografts are usually used for craniofacial skeletal reconstruction and the implants are used for correcting congenital defects.
