Femoral Head Prostheses Market: Introduction

  • Hip is one of the significant supporting joints of the body that functions by joining the femurs with the pelvis. Hip can suffer damage in old age, and thus, patients undergo hip replacement surgeries.
  • Hip joint replacement surgery consists of substitution of the joint with an artificial implant or prosthesis, which enables to recreate the articulation functionality
  • Femoral head prostheses or hip prosthesis are artificial joints that function similar to the natural hip joint when implanted surgically
  • These are implants used in hip replacement surgery for the treatment of hip disorders such as hip osteoarthritis, avascular necrosis, and hip dysplasia
  • Femoral head prostheses or implants are available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. The diameter of the femoral head plays a significant role in determining the range of motion of the artificial hip joint.
  • Femoral heads are usually made of metal, ceramics, stainless steel, chrome, and cobalt alloys
  • Femoral head prostheses are primarily utilized during hip replacement procedures in various settings, including hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and orthopedic clinics

Key Drivers of Global Femoral Head Prostheses Market

  • Rise in prevalence of degenerative joint disorders, such as hip osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis or aseptic necrosis, hip dysplasia, and other hipbone disorders, are key factors that have led to an increase in hip replacement procedures. This, in turn, is projected to boost the global femoral head prostheses market in the near future.
  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the rate of total hip replacements among patients aged 45 has shown a significant increase of 6.8% annually, i.e. 138,700 surgeries in 2000 to 310,800 in 2010.
  • Baby boomer population susceptible to a range of hip joint disorders has increased in the past few years. This, in turn, is expected to drive the demand for femoral head prostheses during the forecast period.

North America to Dominate Global Femoral Head Prostheses Market

  • Rise in prevalence of hip bone disorders among geriatric patients, increase in the number of hip replacement procedures performed in the U.S., and favorable reimbursement scenario for hip replacement surgeries are key factors that are likely to propel the demand for femoral head prostheses in the region
  • According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, approximately 300,000 total hip replacements are performed every year in the U.S. This is anticipated to drive the demand for femoral head prostheses in the country.
  • Increase in incidences of accidental injuries leading to hip fractures and dislocations is further anticipated to augment the demand for femoral head prostheses
  • According to Geriatric Orthopedic Surgery & Rehabilitation (GOSR), the number of hip fractures in the U.S. may rise to 840,000 by 2040. This is projected to boost the growth of the femoral head prostheses market in North America.
  • Increasing geriatric population, rapid innovation in technology, and high R&D expenditure are key factors fueling the growth of the femoral head prostheses market in Europe
  • Presence of a large baby boomer population with degenerative joint disorders in developing countries, such as India and China, and increase in demand for hip arthroplasty in developed countries of Asia Pacific are projected to propel the market in the near future
