LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The increasing preference for arthroplasty over ankle fusion is expected to drive the arthroplasty market growth. Though ankle fusion is considered as the standard treatment for end-stage ankle arthritis, it limits the range of motion and results in an abnormal gait. Ankle fusion also increases the long-term risk of arthritis developing in adjacent hindfoot joints. This is driving the preference for arthroplasty as it maintains the motion of the ankle and reduces the risk of developing adjacent joint arthritis. Also, the postoperative rehabilitation and recovery period after arthroplasty procedure is shorter when compared to ankle fusion. Such factors will result in an increase in ankle replacement procedures among patients, which will drive the arthroplasty market growth. Furthermore, this industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by product (fixed-bearing ankle systems and mobile-bearing ankle systems) and geography (Asia, Europe, North America, and ROW).
Competitive vendor landscape
The global ankle replacement (Arthroplasty) market is highly competitive with major vendors such as Exactech, Inc., Integra LifeSciences, Stryker, Wright Medical Group, and Zimmer Biomet competing based on price, quality, and product/service offerings.
“Improved imaging technologies, advanced instrumentation, and innovative implant designs are some of the technological advancements in arthroplasty procedures. Technologically improved arthroplasty surgeries can be performed through smaller incisions, which allow shorter hospital stays and ensure a quick return to function. Therefore, such technological advancements and new ankle implant launches will encourage patients to opt for arthroplasty procedures, which will subsequently, boost ankle replacement market growth,” says a senior analyst at Technavio
