A senior Analyst covering Medical Devices, says: “Sports medicine technology is built on minimally-invasive arthroscopic implants and instruments. As the adoption of arthroscopic products continues to drive the market, these devices will also spill into other orthopedic segments, so that more patients can avoid having total joint replacement procedures.”

Currently, the sports medicine device industry is dominated by giant manufacturers, such as Smith & Nephew, Arthrex, DePuy Companies, Stryker, ConMed Corporation, ArthroCare and Biomet. In the US alone, these top players hold a combined 79% share of the market. The analyst continues: “The future outlook for the sports medicine industry remains positive in the western markets, with a substantial increase in new indications expected to boost procedure numbers over the forecast period. “On the other hand, countries such as Brazil, China and India have yet to see much growth. However, they will experience increasing adoption of arthroscopic procedures in the coming years, as surgeon training improves and more products are introduced into the markets.”
