Spinal Fusion Devices Market Overview
Global spinal fusion devices market was valued at $5,867 million in 2015, and is anticipated to reach $7,435 million by 2022, registering a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period. Spinal fusion devices are used for the treatment of spinal deformities such as degenerative disc disease and spondylolisthesis. The growth of the market is driven by increase in geriatric population and rise in incidence of spinal disorders. In addition, expansion in the indications for which spinal fusion surgery is performed boosts the market growth. For instance, originally spinal fusion was performed solely for scoliosis and spinal tuberculosis, but there are 14 conditions for which spinal fusion procedure is currently indicated. However, unfavorable reimbursement scenario and stringent regulatory approval procedure of these devices are expected to limit the market growth.

Spinal disorders such as spinal stenosis is the most common problem in men and women over 50 years. The ageing population is at a high risk for spinal impairments, including those with comorbidities and/or compromised immunity. According to an article published in “Tohoku Journal of Experimental Medicine” in February 2016, approximately 23.1% of the Japanese population was aged above 65, and 11.4 % was aged above 75 by end of 2010.
By 2025, 30.5% of the population is estimated to be over 65 years. Rapidly ageing population has major impacts on the society, particularly in the medical field. The same study stated that in 2012, approximately half of the patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) and cervical myelopathy were more than 70 years of age.

Asia-Pacific possesses high market potential for spinal fusion devices, owing to rise in incidence of spinal disorders and increase in healthcare expenditure. Furthermore, rapidly aging population, low cost of the spinal procedures in countries such as India as compared to that of developed countries such as the U.S. have further increased the demand for spinal implants. Spinal surgery is performed at over 2,000 hospitals in India, with complex and sophisticated surgeries such as microscopic spine surgery being performed in at least 500 multi-faculty spinal surgery hospitals and super speciality hospitals. Therefore, the aforementioned factors are projected to propel the demand for spinal fusion devices.

On the basis of product type, fusion devices are segmented into thoracolumbar devices, cervical fixation devices, and interbody fusion devices. Devices used for fusion of thoracic, lumbar, and cervical vertebrae include hooks, rods, and screws. On the other hand, interbody fusions are performed without the use of these equipment, rather include devices made up of bone or polyether ether ketone (PEEK). According to a paper published by the British Editorial Society of Bone and Joint Surgery in 2014, lumbar fusion and cervical fusion rates increased rapidly, whereas thoracic fusion rate decreased. This is evident from the statistics that lumbar fusion constituted about 52% of the total spine fusion procedures in 2011. Thus, rise in prevalence of disorders such as low back pain and stenosis supplements the market growth for spinal fusion devices.
