Technavio’s market research analysts categorize the global arthroscopy devices market into three major product segments:

  • Arthroscopic implants
  • Arthroscopy instruments and accessories
  • Arthroscopes

Arthroscopic implants

Most common implants used during arthroscopy include shoulder implants, knee implants, hip implants, and foot and ankle implants. Arthroscopy implants constitute a major share of the market owing to the growing need for treating orthopedic disorders. The incidence of orthopedic disorders requiring early and accurate diagnosis has fueled the growth of the arthroscopy devices market. According to the CDC statistics, in 2012, 58% women and 42% men suffered from osteoporosis-related fractures.

In addition, growing technology advances are further expected to increase the demand for arthroscopy implants. For instance, in September 2016, Zimmer Biomet launched Vanguard total knee arthroplasty implant system, which has two polyethylene bearings with different articulations on the medial and lateral side of the implant.

Global arthroscopy instruments and accessories market

Arthroscopy instruments consist of devices used during the procedure, including cameras, video monitors, light sources, video recorders, video processors, electrosurgical generators, and insufflators. The average lifespan of an arthroscopic instrument is from six to seven years. Thus, the replacement of old equipment with new advanced devices is the major contributor to revenue generation in this segment.

“Arthroscopy accessories are a largely commoditized, high-volume segment requiring constant replacement, resulting in a steady revenue stream for the manufacturers,” says Barath.

Also, innovations in arthroscopy visualization systems, such as the development of the high-definition and ultra-high definition video systems, have enhanced the visualization of the patient's anatomy.

Global arthroscopes market

Arthroscope is a typical type of endoscope which is inserted into the patient’s body through wounds, natural cavities or through a small incision which is used to treat or diagnose the problems. The device consists of a camera or a light source attached to the tip of the device which assists the surgeon or physician to examine or view the damaged area. The process is being carried out by a physician or an outpatient setting.

These arthroscopes are further segmented into two types comprising of rigid arthroscopes and flexible arthroscopes. The growing incidence of orthopedic disorders has led to an increase in the number of arthroscopic procedures.
