Pedicle screws are small medical instruments that comprise metal screws and rods. They are used in minimally invasive spinal fixation procedures. Pedicle screws are used to add extra support and strength to the vertebral fusion while it heals. Metal pedicle screws are positioned above and below the vertebrae that are to be fused, and a rod is placed to attach the screws together making a supportive brace, which fixates the spine preventing spinal movement and allowing the bone graft to heal. During the lumbar pedicle screw fixation process, the doctor uses special guides and fluoroscopic imaging techniques to allow precise implantation of stabilizing screws and rods in the spine. The procedure minimizes the chances of any major damage to muscles, tendons, and other soft tissue in the back. Once the spinal fusion is completely done, the screws and rods can be removed easily with a small procedure. However, it is not always necessary to remove the screws unless they cause the patient uneasiness.
The global pedicle screws market is expected to expand at a steady pace during the forecast period owing to a number of factors. Steady rise in the incidence of various spinal and orthopedic disorders is expected to drive demand for pedicle screws across the world in the near future. Increase in the global geriatric population that is more susceptible to bone diseases is anticipated to drive the need for more spinal surgeries, which is expected to propel the pedicle screws market during the forecast period. The technologically better designed pedicle screws are also more advantageous over conventional rod and hook constructs. Moreover, rapid increase in the lifestyle-related spinal disorders due to rise in sedentary routines of people is likely to increase the number of spinal deformity cases, thus driving demand for spine correction related instruments and devices such as pedicle screws.
The global pedicle screws market can be segmented based on product, application, and region. In terms of product, the pedicle screws market can be divided into conical pedicle screw, cylindrical pedicle screw, and dual cored pedicle screw. Based on application, the pedicle screws market can be classified into spondylolisthesis, scolisis, fracture, falied fusion, spinal tumor, and others. In terms of region, the global pedicle screws market can be categorized into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. North America is anticipated to account for a dominant share of the global pedicle screws market between 2017 and 2025, due to the high adoption of technologically advanced products, superior health care infrastructure, high number of surgical procedures, and increase in the number of patients with spinal disorders in the region. The market in Europe is expected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period owing to the high awareness about technological advancements, superior health care services, and rise in expenditure on health care services. Developing countries in Asia Pacific are expected to witness rapid development during the forecast period. Rise in awareness about advanced surgical practices, increase in affordability, increase in number of health care research and development programs, development of health care infrastructure, and rise in interest of foreign investors are driving the market in Asia Pacific. Rapid development of health care infrastructure and rise in medical tourism from the Middle East and Western countries for inexpensive health care facilities are some of the prominent factors driving the pedicle screws market in the region.
