LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Technavio’s latest report on the global
spine surgery market
provides an analysis of the key
trends expected to impact the market through 2015-2019. Technavio
defines an emerging trend as a factor that has the potential to
significantly impact the market and contribute to its growth or decline.

The global spine surgery market is expected to grow at a steady pace
over the forecast period. The market is driven by factors such as an
increasing elderly population and the growing incidence of spinal
disorders such as herniated discs, degenerative disc disease,
spondylolisthesis, prolapsed intervertebral discs, and spinal stenosis.

“Also, the shift in preference among surgeons and patients for minimally
invasive (MI) surgery over open or traditional surgery has led to the
development of technologically advanced spinal implants. Also, the
increasing number of clinical trials of new technology implants is
driving market growth,” says Barath Palada, lead analyst at Technavio
for life
science research tools

The top four emerging trends influencing the global spine surgery market
according to Technavio’s healthcare
and life sciences
research analysts are:

Increased use of surface-modified titanium in spinal implants

The use of titanium to manufacture spinal implants has increased in
recent years. Spinal implants such as cages, rods, screws, hooks, wires,
plates, and bolts are being manufactured with titanium in preference to
stainless steel. These implants are strong, light in weight, and allow
for better CT and MRI imaging after implantation as they cause minimum

In addition, titanium implants maintain a porous structure on their
inner surfaces, thereby promoting their integration with bone for
enhanced fusion. Also, retro-serrated teething on the caudal and cranial
surfaces of the implant provides effective primary stability. These
benefits are leading to the growing use of titanium in spinal implants,
which in turn, will propel market growth.

Rise in volume of spinal non-fusion procedures

A growing number of spinal non-fusion procedures are being performed due
to the beneficial outcomes for patients. Non-fusion procedures help
preserve both the mobility and stability of spine as well as alleviate
severe back and leg pain. Since these procedures alleviate pain and
restore motion even while enduring heavy loads, they are considered to
offer clinical benefits over fusion procedures.

New devices for spinal non-fusion have also been introduced, including
devices for artificial disc replacement, dynamic stabilization, and
interspinous process decompression. The rise in the volume of spinal
non-fusion procedures is expected to fuel market growth over the
forecast period.

Rise in popularity of physician-owned ASCs

Many surgeons have started to perform MI surgery in an outpatient
setting, especially for bone and spine disorders. Some MI fracture
operations and fusion procedures can be performed in an ambulatory
surgical center (ASCs). Surgeons are already performing lumbar fusion,
TLIF, and anterior cervical discectomy procedures regularly in a few

This trend will continue, and very soon many complicated open surgery
procedures will be replaced by MI surgery procedures. These developments
will provide an opportunity for surgeons to invest in setting up their
own ASCs to perform various MI surgical procedures in an outpatient
setting, which will boost the growth of the market during the forecast

Emergence of MI sacroiliac joint fusion technique

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction is responsible for 25% of lower back pain
cases across the world. The MI sacroiliac joint fusion technique has
gained popularity over the traditional open surgical technique for the
treatment of sacroiliac joint dysfunction. The technique offers
advantages such as short operating time, minimal blood loss, and reduced
period of immobilization, as well as preservation of bone and ligament.

“The MI sacroiliac joint fusion technique is one of the emerging trends
in the market that will generate revenue for vendors during the forecast
period,” adds Barath.

Some of the top vendors in the global spine surgery market, as
researched by Technavio analysts are:

  • Medtronic
  • DePuy Synthes
  • Stryker
  • NuVasive
  • Zimmer
