Worldwide Orthopaedic Market 2014-2020

In a time of heightened M&A activity, ORTHOWORLD announces the availability of its annually produced ORTHOPAEDIC INDUSTRY ANNUAL REPORT®. The 200-page, comprehensive overview of the industry, complete with 2014 sales estimates and projections to 2020, is presented in 5 major market segments:

  • Joint Reconstruction
  • Trauma
  • Arthroscopy/Soft Tissue Repair
  • Spine
  • Orthobiologics

ORTHOWORLD estimates 2014 worldwide sales of $45.5 billion, an estimated 3% YOY growth, with consistent, steady growth projected through 2020. “The various market segments have their unique challenges and opportunities,” commented Carolyn LaWell, Content Manager for ORTHOWORLD and co-author of the report. “For example, non-fusion technologies in spine are gaining traction, but reimbursement and regulatory headwinds will continue to provide resistance for the near term, whereas certain extremities products are posting double digit growth and experiencing little to no pricing pressure. The ANNUAL REPORT is a valuable read for anyone seeking a firmer grasp on the present (and future) landscape of orthopaedics.”

ORTHOWORLD Members receive an annual installment of the report as part of their Benefits Package. Others (veterans and newcomers alike) are encouraged to consider purchasing a Membership to gain access to the report, though a standalone purchase is available.
