Arthroscopy Procedures and Products Market

Arthroscopy Procedures and Products Market: Growth Expected to be Driven by Increasing Application in Sports Medicine: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2015 - 2023


Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure for visualisation, diagnosis and treatment of joint problems. During the arthroscopy procedure, surgeons inserts an arthroscope, which is a fibre-optic video camera, through a keyhole size incision. It allows arthroscopists to view inside the joint through a high-definition video monitor and determine the amount or type of injury, and further perform arthroscopy without the need of a large incision. Arthroscopy, a minimally invasive key-hole surgery performed on joints, results in higher success rates with less trauma and involves less scarring.

Market Value and Forecast

In 2015, the arthroscopy procedures and products market was valued at US$ 4,488.3 Mn and its revenue is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.7% over 2015–2023.

Market Dynamics

Increasing application in sports medicine, demographic trends, increasing prevalence of osteoarthritis and ease in FDA clearance are the factors driving growth of the global arthroscopy procedures and products market currently. Ease of recovery and success rate, while minimising recovery time and trauma, is a special feature of arthroscopy procedures, which is also a major driving factor for the market. Risk of edema due to irrigation fluids and increasing pricing pressures are anticipated to hamper market growth during the forecast period.

Market Segmentation, by Product Type

By product type, the global arthroscopy procedures and products market is segmented into arthroscopes and visualization systems, arthroscopic resection systems, arthroscopic fluid management systems, arthroscopic implants, arthroscopy radiofrequency (RF) systems, arthroscopic drills and fixation systems and other arthroscopy instruments and accessories. The arthroscopic implants segment is further sub-segmented into knee implants, shoulder implants, hip implants and other implants. The arthroscopic implants product type segment accounts for highest revenue share of the arthroscopy procedures and products market currently, and is expected to remain the leading segment in terms of value during the forecast period. Increase in clinical evidences related to the safety, efficacy and economic benefits of arthroscopic implants in younger patients is expected to boost growth of arthroscopic implants segment over the forecast period.

Market Segmentation, by Procedure

In terms of the segmentation by procedure type, the knee arthroscopy segment is expected to hold more than half the global market share, and the revenue from the segment is projected to expand at the highest CAGR over the forecast period as compared to other segments.

Key Regions

By region, North America is the largest market in terms of value currently and is expected to retain its position through the forecast period. Increasing number of ambulatory surgical centres, developing techniques and equipment and increasing usage of arthroscopic instruments used in hips, shoulders, ankles and wrists procedures are factors expected to boost growth of the North America market over the forecast period. Markets in the Americas and Europe collectively account for over 75% revenue share of the global arthroscopy procedures and products market in 2015. The market in APAC region is projected to exhibit an above average CAGR in terms of value during the forecast period from 2015 to 2023. Increase in preference of arthroscopic surgeries and technological advancements in arthroscopic instruments are factors expected to fuel demand for arthroscopy products over the forecast period.
