Research and Markets: Global Knee Implant (Primary Knee Replacement, and Partial Knee and Revision Knee Replacement) Market 2015-2019: Increase in Aging Population and High Obesity Rates

DUBLIN--()--Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/qzr5vp/global_knee) has announced the addition of the "Global Knee Implant Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

Knee implant (or knee arthroplasty) is a surgical procedure for the replacement of damaged parts of knee joints in patients with various orthopedic disorders such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and post-traumatic arthritis. During the procedure, the damaged parts are replaced by artificial parts. In addition, partial or total knee replacements are performed depending on the severity of the disease.

The increase in obesity rates is expected to have a positive influence on the growth of the global knee implant market. According to the OECD data, one in five children in the OECD member countries is overweight. Therefore, high obesity rates are expected to have a positive influence on the growth of the global knee implant market.

According to the report, one of the major drivers in the market is an increase in the aging population. The risk of developing arthritis increases with age. Enhanced standards of healthcare and sophisticated treatment options have led to an increase in life expectancy, leading to an increase in the aging population.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the market is post-surgery complications. These complications arise because of defective devices. Surgery can also result in blood clots, ligament or artery damage, fractures, or wound infections.
