Increasing prevalence of osteoarthritis coupled with new product launches will drive the market growth

The single injection regimen provides greater physician and patient convenience and hence, is highly preferred over other treatments for viscosupplementation. Osteoarthritis is not only limited to pain and reduced quality of life for patients but also generates high and extra hospital costs.

Owing to the rapidly increasing patients suffering from osteoarthritis, the market players will focus on providing single injection viscosupplementation treatments. Moreover, viscosupplementation is a cost-effective treatment option to delay total knee replacement surgery. Hence, low-income countries will majorly focus on viscosupplementation thereby, spurring the market growth. Additionally, launch of new products for the treatment of osteoarthritis will contribute to the industry growth in the upcoming years.

Presence of large number of commercialized products for the treatment of osteoarthritis will enhance the segmental growth

The 3 injections segment held a market share of around 48% in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at substantial rate during the forecast period. The 3 injection viscosupplementation treatments are in the market for quite a long time. The segmental growth is attributed to the factors such as high adoption of products and presence of large number of commercialized products for the treatment of osteoarthritis. The viscosupplementation procedure with the help of 3 injections is provided to the patients at weekly intervals. The 3 injections treatment reduces the pain of an individual within few weeks and hence, will ultimately enhance the product demand.

Several advantages of viscosupplements with non-avian origin will impel the segmental growth over the forecast period

The non-avian origin segment was valued at around USD 2.1 billion in 2019. The viscosupplements with non-avian origin are the bio-fermentation products produced using bacteria. Owing to the high safety, effectiveness and lower allergenic potential, large number of patients are selecting the viscosupplementation procedures with non-avian source of origin. Moreover, the hyaluronic acid derived from non-avian origin reduces the risks of adverse reactions such as arthralgia, injection-site erythema, swelling, joint warmth and joint effusion.
