The Spine Market: A Look at Past and Forecasted Performance

Spine is the largest individual segment that we track, accounting for 18.2% of the orthopedic industry's overall revenue. Excluding biologics, sales of orthopedic spine products topped $9.3 billion in 2018, growing +2.7% vs. 2017. Growth in the segment exceeded our expectations, as several companies in the top 10 posted double-digit increases that offset lower performance by manufacturers at the top of the list. Here, we take a deeper look at past, present and forecasted performance.

According to our estimates published in THE ORTHOPAEDIC INUSTRY ANNUAL REPORT, orthopedic industry revenue reached $51 billion worldwide in 2018 and grew 3.5% over 2017. Results were mixed among the largest companies as some stumbled operationally while others overperformed, due in part to early adoption of technology and entry into high-growth segments. Common strategic themes present in 2018 that will continue as part of the industry's narrative in 2019 and beyond include connected ecosystems of products, flagship technology (e.g. robotics), portfolio-wide pull through and a growing shift to outpatient procedures.
