Technavio healthcare and life sciences analysts highlight the following three market drivers that are contributing to the growth of the bone cement mixer devices:
- Growing prevalence of orthopedic disorders
- Increased use of bone cement in interventional procedures
- High demand for automated bone cement mixers
Growing prevalence of orthopedic disorders
There has been a significant rise in the incidence of orthopedic disorders across the world in the last decade. Orthopedic disorders require bone cement for fixation or binding of joints. Arthritis, trauma, back pain, and osteoporosis are the most common joint problems worldwide. According to a 2012 CDC report, about 52.5 million adults are diagnosed with arthritis or rheumatoid arthritis disorders annually in the US.
“Limited physical activity and unhealthy eating habits can negatively influence the body's homeostasis. This complication intensifies with age, making most people aged 60 years and above susceptible to orthopedic diseases such as arthritis and spinal deformity. Sophisticated treatment options and improved standards for healthcare have increased life expectancy, resulting in a further rise in the population of this age group. Thus, the increasing number of orthopedic disorders will increase the demand for bone cement mixer devices,” says Barath Palada, a lead analyst at Technavio for medical devices research.
Increased use of bone cement in interventional procedures
The growing demand for bone cement in interventional procedures such as vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty will, in turn, drive the adoption of bone cement mixers. For instance, Stryker offers a precision cement delivery system, which includes cement mixers used in vertebroplasty procedures for the treatment of fractures. Also, BD’s AVAmax Vertebral Balloon System uses a unipedicular, lateral method to target balloon placement across the midline of the vertebral body. This new system is used to stabilize the fracture and eliminate pain by injecting cement into the vertebra. The system includes a disposable mixer, which mixes the cement within the mixing barrel for consistent cement usage from one procedure to the next.
High demand for automated bone cement mixers
The demand for automated bone cement mixers is on the rise because of an increased need to reduce procedure time. This will further improve patient compliance, thereby driving the adoption rates. For instance, Stryker offers AutoPlex Cement Delivery System, a fast and easy to use mixer and delivery system. This device automatically mixes the cement, which is ready for delivery in less than one minute. This device also automatically blends and transfers the cement. Exactech offers Cemex System, which features a unique, self-contained system that combines cement powder and liquid into an enclosed mixing system.
“This device eliminates the need for human intervention in the cement mixing process and allows the delivery of an optimal mix for every application,” says Barath.
