MediPoint: Viscosupplementation - Global Analysis and Market Forecasts


Osteoarthritis constitutes an increasing public health burden, and is the most common cause of musculoskeletal disability around the globe. Resulting from a complex interaction of biomechanical, biochemical, and genetic factors, OA develops slowly and is characterized by the degradation of the affected joint's cartilage and bone hypertrophy. The disability is accompanied by joint pain, stiffness, and loss of range of motion. Initially treated with several therapies containing physical therapy and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, advanced cases of OA have traditionally been treated surgically. However, intra-articular viscosupplementation with hyaluronic acid, a high-molecular-weight glycosaminoglycan, has become an increasingly accepted therapeutic alternative to knee replacement surgery in the symptomatic management of OA over the past decade.

Overall viscosupplementation market was estimated at $2.1B in 2016 spanning 39 markets. By the end of the forecast period in 2023, it is estimated that the sector will grow to approximately $3.1B at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 6.00 percent.

Key drivers of the viscosupplementation market are -

- The growing prevalence of osteoarthritis due to growing aging and obese populations.

- The evolving multimodal treatment paradigm for OA.

- Patients seeking to delay knee replacement surgery in an effort to maintain an active lifestyle.
