Global Bone Cement Mixing Devices Market - Introduction
Bone cement is paste like substance which is injected as substitute for the missing bone. After certain period it get broken down and eventually get replaced by bone. Bone cement mixing devices are used to improve the strength and mechanical properties of the cement and reduce the risk of cement failure in arthroplasty. These are closed vacuum systems used to reduce porosity of the mixed cement. Combination of different bone cements is used in orthopedic surgery and total hip replacement.
Global Bone Cement Mixing Devices Market - Competitive Landscape
The global bone cement mixing devices market is highly fragmented due to presence of large number of players. A large number of players hold significant share of the market in respective regions. Prominent players operating in the global bone cement mixing devices market are Stryker, Teknimed, Heraeus Holding, Zimmer Biomet, Armstrong Medical, OSARTIS GmbH, and Medline Industries, Inc. These players focus on developing new products. New product launch, approvals, and acquisitions in the past three years have driven the global market. In March 2018, Heraeus Holding introduced new product in PALACOS portfolio along with two mixing systems: PALABOWL and PALAMIX. In October 2017, Stryker acquired VEXIM, a medical device company. This acquisition enabled Stryker to accelerate the expansion of the business globally. In March 2017, Stryker received FDA approval for AutoPlex mixing and delivery system. This system is designed for reduction of fracture and creation of void cellular bone in spine.
