Polyether Ether Ketone (PEEK) Interbody Devices Market

2020 Analysis and Review: PEEK Interbody Devices Market by End-users – Hospitals, ASCs, and Specialty Clinics for 2020-2030

Introduction

Advancements in spinal surgeries have accelerated uptake of polyether ether ketone (PEEK) interbody devices. These devices are implanted in order to facilitate spinal fusion. Such surgeries are designed to inhibit motion at a painful vertebral segment.

Developed for the US aerospace industry, PEEK devices are now being incorporated across the healthcare domain to facilitate numerous surgical procedures. These implants are bone-friendly and more compatible with diagnostic imaging.

According to Future Market Insights (FMI), PEEK devices will grow at 7.7% CAGR from 2020-2030.

Advancements in Spinal Implants

As the global geriatric population expands, the incidence of spinal disorders has multiplied. Consequently, healthcare providers have been intensifying research to discover innovative solutions for the problem.

PEEK interbody devices are an outcome of this research, with some of the earliest devices being used in the 1980s, followed by widespread clinical acceptance in the subsequent decade.  

Provision of a bone-like modulus, high radiolucency to ensure accuracy and greater biocompatibility have all contributed to increasing PEEK interbody devices adoption for spinal procedures, and is likely to remain so in the future.

Demand for Organic Polymers

Heightening environmental concerns over the usage of synthetic polymers to manufacture medical implants have accelerated growth prospects for organic polymers in recent years.

PEEK interbody devices are a class of organic thermoplastic polymers which have acquired a V-O flammability rating as they produce minimal toxic emissions when exposed to a flame. Based on this characteristic, it has been a preferred choice of material across various end-use applications.

Additionally, polyether ether ketone thermoplastics are recyclable, thus increasing their uptake in the healthcare industry to produce interbody devices on a large-scale.

Increasing Legislative Approvals

The multifarious advantages offered by PEEK interbody devices has led regulatory authorities worldwide to increase their uptake.

For instance, in 2018, Vallum Corporation, a prominent medical devices manufacturer, received approval from the U.S. FDA to market its PEEK spinal interbody fusion device named PEEKPlus.

Rising Demand for Minimally Invasive Surgeries

Current advancements in surgery are centered on developing minimally invasive spine technologies to reduce trauma for the patients. PEEK implants are being deployed across minimally invasive spine implants for reducing tissue dissection and nerve root retraction.

Vertebral Technologies Inc., a prominent PEEK implants manufacturer, specializes in minimally invasive interbody devices. Its product line includes the Interfuse Interbody System which provides a large anterior lumbar interbody fusion sized cage footprint through a less invasive approach.

High Capital Expenditure an Impediment

Healthcare organizations have to appropriate a significant budget percentage to acquire PEEK interbody devices as they are generally expensive and difficult to procure. Consequently, many practitioners are discouraged from acquiring these devices, thus restraining growth.

Category-wise Analysis

Interbody Fusion Devices Remain Dominant

By product type, interbody fusion devices are to be the most extensively utilized through 2030, expanding at 7.7% CAGR. Amongst all device, the transforminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) devices shall generate nearly half of the revenue share.

Trailing behind is the posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) device segment, expected to generate nearly 30% of the global revenue share. Minimally invasive nature combined with enhanced patient compliance are expected to pivot interbody fusion devices growth.

Hospitals to be Primary End-Users

Maximum uptake is witnessed across hospitals, owing to increasing number of footfalls by patients to address internal joint problems.

Specialty clinics are increasingly incorporating interbody fusion devices. A CAGR of 6.5% is projected for the segment, along with an incremental $ opportunity worth US$ 483.6 Mn.

COVID-19’s Impact on PEEK Interbody Devices Market

The novel coronavirus pandemic has had varying impacts across the global polyether ether ketone interbody devices market. In the first stage, strict lockdowns and social distancing measures led to a drastic decline in industrial output, creating immense shortages of the devices across various healthcare settings.

Furthermore, greater emphasis was laid on caring for COVID-19 positive patients, leading to postponement of elective surgical procedures such as spinal correction or implantation, causing a substantial decline.

As the incidence of infections receded, the market has been experiencing a gradual incline. Flattening infection curves have enabled countries to ease lockdown restrictions, leading to a resumption of output which has largely balanced the demand-supply equation.

Moreover, spinal implant procedures are resuming, with hospitals and clinics registering a fall in the number of SARS-CoV-2 patients. Considering this recovery scenario, the global PEEK interbody devices is anticipated to rebound starting from 2021.
