LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global bone cement market report. This research report also lists 20 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.
The rise in demand for orthopedic surgeries and interventional procedures such as vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty will increase the demand for bone cement for joint fixation. For instance, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) statistics in a 2014 report, more than 72 million people in the US have disc degeneration, a progressive condition.
Competitive vendor landscape
The global bone cement market is highly concentrated and dominated by Tier-1 players with stronger positions than Tier-2/Tier-3 vendors. The key players dominating the market are Stryker and Zimmer Biomet. The market also includes other prominent companies, such as Cook Medical, aap Implantate, and G-21.
“The growing focus on the development of bone cement with high quality and safety such as antibiotic-loaded bone cement for arthroplasty and orthopedic joint fixations, with better features, will increase the competition among existing vendors,” says Barath Palada, a lead orthopedics and medical devices research analyst from Technavio.
Also, the growing strategic initiatives such as M&A, awareness programs, and investments in R&D activities to strengthen their presence in the market will increase their revenue shares. The competition among the key players is high due to their dominant position in the market.
