2014-04-28 04:18:01 - MediPoint: Total Hip Replacement - EU Analysis and Market Forecasts - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
Osteoarthritis has become a global public health concern with no cure. It is the most common form of arthritis that is primarily due to wear and tear of the joints. With the aging global population, this is an indication that is growing rapidly with the hip being one of the most common joints afflicted. While the primary indication for total hip replacement (THR) is osteoporosis, the other major indications for THR are osteonecrosis and fractures to a lesser degree.
As people live longer and with younger patients also receiving implants, the revision rates for primary hip replacements are also expected to rise. Primary hip replacement has become one of the most successful surgeries, with a variety of femoral and acetabular components
available from a wide selection of manufacturers.
The hip replacement market has become a mature market where products have become commodities. The future of the market lies on the ability of manufacturers to provide implants at a very low cost while continuing to provide the same level of clinical efficacy.
The product development need lies primarily in revising the resurfacing products´ articulating surface with new materials rather than developing new acetabular and femoral components. Additionally the major opportunity lies within the emerging markets which are the countries that have a higher CAGR and will provide the key for growth and grabbing market share.
