Shoulder Replacement Implants Market Introduction

Shoulder replacement is a surgical procedure that replaces the original ball and socket surfaces of the shoulder with similar shaped prosthetic implants. Various types of shoulder replacement procedures can be performed depending on the needs of patients. Some of the procedures include total shoulder replacement, reverse shoulder replacement, partial shoulder replacement, shoulder resurfacing, and revision shoulder arthroplasty. Embedding the right prosthetic implant depends on the type of surgical procedure to be performed. For instance, use of HemiCAP implants is an active alternative to a total shoulder replacement procedure.

Shoulder Replacement Implants Market Dynamics

Increase in Prevalence of Degenerative Joint Disorders Driving Demand for Shoulder Replacement Implants

Osteoarthritis is a major indication for shoulder replacement procedures across the globe. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 130 million people are expected to suffer from osteoarthritis worldwide, out of which 40 million will be severely disabled by the disease. Prevalence of shoulder osteoarthritis was estimated to be 14% in the U.K. in 2016, according to The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI).

Complications Associated With Shoulder Arthroplasty Limits the Growth of Implants

Infection is a devastating complication associated with shoulder replacement procedures which can lead to substantial morbidity. According to estimates by organizations working in the field of arthritis, rate of infection accounts for approximately 15% of the shoulder arthroplasties. Instability in the joint, nerve injury, wound healing problems, dislocation of upper arm bone, and lack of good range of motion in patients after post-surgery are other complications associated with shoulder replacement procedures anticipated to impede the growth of the shoulder replacement implants market.
