NuVasive Takes Position as Tenth Largest Orthopaedic Device Company After DePuy Synthes Merger

In-Depth Company Intelligence Provided in New Report

CHAGRIN FALLS, Ohio, July 26, 2013 / NuVasive entered the list of top ten largest orthopaedic device companies upon Johnson & Johnson/DePuy’s 2012 acquisition of fellow top ten market competitor, Synthes. NuVasive posted revenue of $620 million in 2012, claiming just over an estimated 1 percent of the orthopaedic market overall.

Observations in ORTHOPAEDIC DEVICE COMPANY PROFILES: THE TOP TEN show that in the slowing orthopaedic market, NuVasive was one of only three top ten companies to achieve double-digit growth, alongside Arthrex and DePuy Synthes. All three remain poised for continued expansion.

Arthrex has made several significant product launches in 2013, expanding its TightRope technology offerings and releasing a new comprehensive foot plating system. To accommodate projected growth, the company expects to open a 197,000 square foot manufacturing facility in 3Q13 and create nearly 500 jobs by 2016.

DePuy Synthes has undertaken numerous global and domestic product launches in 2013, including the GLOBAL UNITE shoulder arthroplasty system and the ATTUNE knee. ORTHOWORLD® observations note that the largest orthopaedic device manufacturer plans to accelerate growth in the Asia Pacific region and emerging markets by customizing products, developing simpler and more affordable systems and sourcing R&D locally.

Deeper company intelligence, including product portfolios, mergers and acquisitions, strategic initiatives, product launches, significant regulatory and reimbursement events, 510(k) clearances, legal developments and ORTHOWORLD observations, is documented in ORTHOPAEDIC DEVICE COMPANY PROFILES: THE TOP TEN. The report was spun out from THE ORTHOPAEDIC INDUSTRY ANNUAL REPORT® and presents intel on each of the ten largest orthopaedic device companies: DePuy Synthes, Stryker, Zimmer, Smith & Nephew, Medtronic, Biomet, Arthrex, DJO, Aesculap and NuVasive.
