Research and Markets: MediPoint: Spinal Fusion - US Analysis and Market Forecasts to 2020

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/rr8rgw/medipoint_spinal) has announced the addition of the "MediPoint: Spinal Fusion - US Analysis and Market Forecasts" report to their offering.

The fastest growing segment within the spinal fusion market will be spinal plating systems, with a CAGR of 5.60%. The US pedicle screw systems market and the US interbody cages market will grow at similar rates over the forecast period.

Spinal fusion surgery is a well-established procedure that has been performed since the early 1900s. The procedure has benefited immensely from its long history of use, investments in advancing technologies, and its clinical success in a growing variety of spinal conditions. These traits have led spinal fusion surgery to become one of the most frequently performed surgeries in the US, which is undoubtedly, the largest geographic market for this procedure. Given the global phenomenon of an aging society and the associated increasing incidences of degenerative spinal conditions, the spinal fusion market is expected to remain strong over the forecast period.
