Viscosupplementation - Current and Future Players
Osteoarthritis (OA) constitutes a growing public health burden, and is the most common cause of musculoskeletal disability across the globe. Intra-articular viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid (HA) has become an increasingly accepted therapeutic alternative to knee replacement surgery in the symptomatic management of OA over the past decade. Going forward, palliative pain treatments are likely to continue to fare well as healthcare reform kicks in and lag times for knee replacement become the norm. Growth of the viscosupplementation market will be highest in the US and the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, where there is a significant pent-up demand for early intervention in the management of OA.
The increasing prevalence of OA and the lower cost of prescribing viscosupplementation compared with knee replacement surgery have prompted the medical community to take a closer look at this therapy. However, there is a growing concern among physicians that the updated American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) and Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) treatment guidelines for knee OA will result in increased insurance denials for viscosupplementation. Moving forward, industry consolidation and intense competition in the viscosupplementation arena will cause increasing numbers of companies to augment their research efforts to differentiate their products from the lower-end competitors. The motivation to incorporate the favorable properties of different agents into a more effective viscosupplementation product has led to the manipulation and development of next-generation HA formulations consisting of not only HAs, but also pharmaceuticals, such as corticosteroids.
