Artificial Disc Market size worth around USD 5.6 Bn by 2026

  • Published Date: January 22, 2020

Artificial Disc Market size is set to exceed USD 5.6 billion by 2026; according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Artificial disc market size is mainly attributable to growing prevalence of degenerative disc diseases and increasing patient preference towards disc replacement procedures. Moreover, increasing investment in R&D activities to develop innovative products will escalate the product demand over the forecast period.

Lifestyle changes and lack of physical activity to increase the risk of degenerative disc diseases

Increasing prevalence of cervical and lumbar degenerative disc diseases will serve to be a primary factor driving the global artificial disc industry growth over the forecast timeframe. Lack of physical activity and adoption of sedentary lifestyle has led to increase in the number of chronic low back pain cases worldwide. Rising geriatric population base prone to various musculoskeletal diseases will further contribute to market progress. Numerous structural and functional changes in the geriatric population will upsurge the demand for disc replacement procedures, thereby fostering the artificial disc market growth.

Moreover, focus of industry players on development of technological advanced artificial discs will serve to be another key factors accelerating the artificial disc business growth. Advent of technology in medical devices industry has led to novel product development and improvisations in the existing products. Availability of advanced multi-level artificial discs for treatment in patients having issues with two consecutive spinal discs will fuel the product demand during the analysis timeframe.

Growing preference towards motion preservation surgeries to increase the demand for cervical artificial discs market

Based on service providers, pharmacovigilance market is divided into in-house and contract outsourcing. Cervical artificial disc segment accounted for more than USD 1 billion revenue in 2019 owing to its benefits such as decompression of axial neck or arm pain in various musculoskeletal diseases. Patient preference towards motion preservation surgeries over spinal fusion and other motion creating surgeries will escalate the market growth. Increasing incidence of cervical disc diseases among the adult population will further augment the market expansion.
