Osteoarthritis Treatment Market Research Report, By Type (Hip Osteoarthritis, Spinal Osteoarthritis) By Diagnosis (Imaging, Joint Fluid Analysis) By Treatment (Medication, Surgery, Therapy) By End Users (Hospitals, Medical Institutes) – Global Forecast till 2023
The Global Osteoarthritis Treatment Market is touted to register a CAGR of 6.8% during the forecast period (2017-2023).
The surge in the global osteoarthritis market is mainly due to the growing geriatric population, surging demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures, and high prevalence of osteoarthritis across the globe. Growth in the geriatric population has resulted in higher prevalence of osteoarthritis among the aging population. It is considered one of the most common joint disease, generally found in people of more than 65 years. It is further accompanied by reduced quality of life and mortality. According to the WHO, osteoarthritis is considered one of the ten most disabling diseases, especially in the developed economies.
Increased demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures in order to treat osteoarthritis is the primary factor triggering the demand from the osteoarthritis market. For instance, MAKOplasty is a minimally invasive knee surgery, which helps to relieve pain caused by osteoarthritis. Government support for funding and ongoing research and development are further creating new growth opportunities for the market.
On the contrary, low per capita income, especially in the developing economies, coupled with the side effects associated with the treatment procedures are likely to restrict the market growth in the coming years.
