North America is anticipated to account for a leading share of the global shoulder replacement market during the forecast period, owing to an increase in geriatric patient pool with joint disorders.
- Advancing age is a major factor responsible for the increase in the number of shoulder arthroplasties performed in the U.S. For instance, according to the American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), more than 750,000 shoulder arthroplasty, rotator cuff repair, and total elbow arthroplasty surgeries are performed each year in the country.
- Moreover, favorable the reimbursement scenario for shoulder replacement in the country is estimated to drive the shoulder replacement market in North America.
- The shoulder replacement market in Asia Pacific is likely to expand at a rapid pace in the next few years. Increase in the number of baby boomers with joint disorders and fractures, and a rise in sport injuries in India and China is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities to the shoulder replacement market in the near future.
- Furthermore, rise in the volume of shoulder arthroplasties performed in Australia is another major factor propelling the shoulder replacement market in Asia Pacific. For instance, according to the Australian Orthopedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry (AOANJRR), approximately 6,536 shoulder replacement surgeries were performed in Australia in 2017, witnessing an increase of 10.0% as compared to 2016.
