Artificial Joints Market Research, 2032

The global artificial joints market size was valued at $20.2 billion in 2022, and is projected to reach $31.8 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 4.6% from 2023 to 2032. Artificial joints, commonly referred to as prosthetic joints or joint implants, are medical devices created to replace a human body joint that has been injured or undergoes degenerative changes. These tools are designed to act similarly to a natural joint, improving joint mobility, relieving pain, and regaining physical function. Artificial joints are typically used in orthopedic surgeries, such as joint replacement surgeries, to replace joints that have been severely damaged due to conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, joint degeneration, or joint trauma.

Artificial joints are constructed using biocompatible materials, such as metal alloys, high-density plastics, ceramics, or a combination of these materials. These materials are chosen for their durability, strength, biocompatibility, and ability to withstand the mechanical stress and movements of the joint.

Artificial Joints Market

Historical Overview

The artificial joints market share is analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively from 2022 to 2032. The artificial joints market experienced growth at a CAGR of around 4.6% from 2022 to 2032. Most of the growth during this period is  derived from North America owing to rise in the number of market players for artificial joints and increase in the number of populations suffering from orthopedic diseases such as osteoarthritis.   

Market Dynamics

Growth of the global artificial joints market forecast is majorly driven by high presence of market players artificial joints, increase in prevalence of osteoarthritis, and technological advancements for development of artificial joints. Moreover, rise in prevalence of osteoarthritis is anticipated to increase the number of surgical procedures such as knee replacement and hip replacement. Thus, this factor is anticipated to drive the demand for artificial joints and boost the growth of the market. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that can cause significant pain, stiffness, and functional limitations in the affected joint. Thus, this factor is anticipated to boost the demand for artificial joints and drive the growth of the market.

For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2021, osteoarthritis was the most common form of arthritis and about 58.5 million people suffered from arthritis in the U.S. Thus, rise in prevalence of osteoarthritis cases is expected to drive the growth of artificial joints market. In addition, surge in incidences of knee osteoarthritis further increases the demand for artificial knee joints. For instance, according to the data published by National Center for Biomedical Information (NCBI), in November 2020, around 86.7 million individuals were suffering from knee osteoarthritis, globally. Therefore, increase in incidence rate of knee osteoarthritis is expected to increase the number of knee replacement surgeries and boost the artificial joints market growth.

Moreover, rise in the number of orthopedic surgeries such as knee replacement, knee arthroplasty, and hip replacement is anticipated to drive the demand for artificial knee and hip joints. Thus, this factor is expected to drive the growth of the market. For instance, according to annual report of The Swedish Arthroplasty Register, 222,249 individuals had at least one hip replacement and 155,041 individuals had at least one knee replacement in Sweden at the end of 2021.

Moreover, according to, National Library of Medicine, in 2022, the demand for total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in the U.S. was anticipated to increase 673% from 2005 to 2030, with 5.28 million TKAs to be done annually. In addition, American Joint Replacement Registry Annual Report, in 2022 reported that, over 2.8 million hip and knee procedures were performed in 1,250 institutions  of Columbia. Thus, rise in the number of knee replacement, knee arthroplasty, and hip replacement is anticipated to fuel the demand for artificial joints and drive the growth of the market.

Rise in the number of geriatric populations is anticipated to increase the number of populations suffering from osteoarthritis, which is expected to increase the number of surgical procedures and increase the demand for artificial joint. Therefore, fueling the growth of the market. For instance, according to National Poll of Healthy Aging, in 2022, three in five adults of age group 50 years to 80 years (60%) reported that they have arthritis, with 30% reporting a diagnosis of osteoarthritis, that is, “wear and tear,” “bone-on-bone,” or degenerative arthritis. Less commonly reported types of arthritis were rheumatoid arthritis (8%), gout or pseudogout (7%), or another kind of arthritis (5%).

Moreover, the Swedish Arthroplasty Register, in 2021, reported that around 46,777 population of age group 65 years to 74 years, and around 58,020 population of 75 year to 84 years have undergone knee replacement surgery in Sweden. Thus, rise in prevalence of osteoarthritis in geriatric population is anticipated to increase the number of arthroplasty surgeries. Thus, this factor is anticipated to fuel the needs for artificial joints in aging population and boost the artificial joints market share.

Increase in prevalence of sports injuries is anticipated to increase the prevalence of osteoarthritis, thus, expected to rise the demand for surgical intervention and fuel the demand for artificial joints. Therefore, boosting the growth of the market. Injuries to the joints, such as sports-related injuries, repetitive stress injuries, or accidents, are predicted to increase the risk of developing osteoarthritis. Joint trauma can damage the protective cartilage within the joint, leading to accelerated joint degeneration and the onset of osteoarthritis. For instance, according to report published by National Safety Council of U.S, in 2021, 20% rise in sports and recreational injuries was observed as compared to 2020.  Thus, increase in the number of sports injuries boosts the growth of the market.

On the other hand, side effects associated to surgical intervention, in which artificial joints are used, is expected to hamper the growth of the market. For instance, side effects of surgical intervention include risk of infection at the surgical site or in the joint following arthroplasty surgery and risk of blood clots forming in the legs (deep vein thrombosis) or traveling to the lungs (pulmonary embolism). Moreover, it also includes issues with the artificial joint itself can occur, such as joint dislocation, loosening, or wear and tear over time, alleviate pain, allergic reaction, and others. Thus, this factor anticipated to decrease in number of surgical procedures and expected to hamper the growth of artificial joints market.  

COVID-19 had a significant impact on the artificial joints market. Several clinical trials have been disrupted due to the pandemic and social distancing regulations. The shortage of healthcare workers, financial constraints, and lockdowns have led to increase in the number of patients who are unable to access timely treatments. Thus, these factors are anticipated to restrain the growth of the market. In addition, decrease in the number of orthopedic surgeries such as total joint arthroplasty (TJA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is anticipated decrease the demand for artificial joints and restrain the growth of the market.

For instance, according to National Library of Medicine, in 2021, there was 30.1% decrease in revision TKA surgery and a 6.80% decrease in revision total hip replacement surgery in the U.S. Moreover, Springer Journal of Experimental Orthopedics reported that, there was drop of 54% and 42%, in the rate of joint replacements and arthroscopies, respectively, in April 2020. Thus, cancelation of elective surgeries, decrease in the number of consultations in orthopedic diseases, and financial constraints were anticipated to hinder the growth of the market during the COVID-19 pandemic.
