World Arthroscopy Devices Market

Date: 2016-08

Arthroscopy is the minimally invasive surgical procedure to visualize, diagnose, and treat problems of the joints using an arthroscope. It is commonly performed on joints of the knees, shoulders, hips, elbows, ankles, and wrist among others. An arthroscope comprises probes, soft tissue repair devices, arthroscopes, and fluid management systems. Factors such as increasing incidence of sports-related injuries and growing demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures have fostered the adoption of arthroscopic devices. According to the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, around 4 million people undergo knee arthroscopies, whereas the number of patients undergoing shoulder arthroscopies is 1.4 million per annum. Unlike traditional surgical procedures, arthroscopy is suitable for the geriatric population as well as professional athletes owing to its associated benefits such as short recovery period and minimal pain.

Increasing incidence of sports-related musculoskeletal disorders, such as bone tumor, rheumatoid arthritis, and osteoarthritis, have fueled the growth of this market. In addition, ongoing research activities in the sport medicine sector is a major growth factor of the market. However, unfavorable reimbursement policies and unavailability of skilled professionals are the major restrains of the market. Moreover, the high cost of devices and implants and high excise duty imposed on the sale of medical devices have impeded the market growth. For instance, in the U.S., the excise tax on medical devices is 2.3% of the gross sales.
