Orthopaedic Industry Awaits Closure on Countless Elements of Change from U.S. Healthcare Reform Legislation

CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio, June 5, 2012 / ORTHOWORLD Inc. announced release of the 2012 installment of THE ORTHOPAEDIC INDUSTRY ANNUAL REPORT. The report is a concise overview of the orthopaedic segment, offering a high-level view of historical market and company performance, merger and acquisition activity and patient demographics.

"Privately held orthopaedic companies with 2011 sales over $10MM, such as GS Medical, ISTO Technologies and Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation, assisted in our aim to compile an accurate estimate of year over year growth," commented Julie Vetalice, Information Products Editor for ORTHOWORLD. "As in 2010, sales in the U.S. accounted for 60 percent of total 2011 orthopaedic revenues, with the top spots claimed by Stryker, Johnson & Johnson/DePuy and Zimmer."

The report asserts that slow-flowing funds have not deterred startup companies from entering the orthopaedic market, as evidenced by Biologic Therapies, OssiFi and Vertical Spine. Others, such as Cardo Medical, Facet Solutions and Impliant, closed their doors or sold off select assets, often as a result of a more stringent and demanding regulatory environment in the U.S. Emerging markets, especially China, India and Brazil, continue to offer growth potential.

"The ORTHOPAEDIC INDUSTRY ANNUAL REPORT is a strategic must-have for industry newcomers and seasoned veterans alike," commented Mrs. Vetalice. "Our diverse clientele leverage the intelligence contained in the report for market research, forecasting, sales strategies, investment planning, competitive analysis and other decision making initiatives that keep business driving into the future."
