MediPoint: Sports Medicine - Global Analysis and Market Forecasts

Sports medicine is a specialized medical field that deals with understanding, diagnosing, and treating abnormalities in the joints, muscles, or skeletal structures as a result of sports or exercise. There has been a continuous increase in injuries due to sports and exercise, as society has realized the dangers of physical inactivity and significant effort has been made to discourage sedentariness. Therefore, sports medicine equally caters to professional athletes, as well as children and amateur adults who engage in an active lifestyle.

Sports medicine technology is built on minimally-invasive arthroscopic implants and equipment, and these will continue to drive this market, as well as other orthopaedic segments. As both a technique-driven and an implant-based field, there are arthroscopic products continuously entering the market for difficult-to-access joints, and smaller implants for smaller repairs. Materials development has been a key interest for physicians, as they look for more durable and biocompatible implant materials.

The global market for arthroscopy, which encompasses 39 countries and includes implant and capital equipment, was valued at approximately USD4.19B in 2016. The market is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.6%, to reach a valuation of USD5.73B in 2023

The key drivers for the arthroscopy device market during the forecast period are -
- The growing prevalence of sports injury caused by repetitive training
- The aging population suffering from osteoarthritis
- The obese population sustaining joint injuries due to improper biomechanics
- The growing number of individuals adopting western sports in the emerging nations
- Innovations in the biologics and cell-based industry to treat sports injuries conservatively
- The trend towards more minimally-invasive techniques to treat sports injuries, reducing cost and recovery time for patients
- Innovations in implant technology and niche products that increase surgical efficacy

As of 2016, North America comprised the largest segment of the sports medicine market, with a global sports medicine market share of 53%: 49% for arthroscopic implants, and 58% for arthroscopic capital equipment, as seen in GlobalData estimates that the global market share will stay within a 3% range over the forecast period although the APAC regions will experience the most growth. This will be due to an increase in low-cost manufacturers and a rise in medical tourism to countries like India. Nevertheless, multinational companies continue to dominate the market in sports medicine products in both arthroscopic implants and capital equipment, with up to 90% market share in the North America, EU, and APAC markets.

The dominant players in the sports medicine device market remain Arthrex, Smith & Nephew, DePuy Synthes Companies, Stryker, ConMed Corporation, Zimmer Biomet, Olympus, and Karl Storz. Arthrex holds the number one spot globally, with the top eight players holding a combined 93% market share. The rest of the market is held by small-to-medium enterprises that are involved in cutting-edge research and niche products. This market share distribution is apparent both globally and in each of the individual geographial regions.

The report “MediPoint: Sports Medicine - Global Analysis and Market Forecasts” focuses on the market outlook for sports medicine implants and capital equipment that are commonly used across sports injury procedures. Implant fixation products include suture anchors, interference screws, and other meniscal implants covering the knee, shoulder, hip, and small joints. Orthopedic arthroscopic capital equipment products include shavers, arthroscopes, radiofrequency (RF) wands, visualization systems, fluid management systems, and fluid disposables.
