Medtronic, DePuy Synthes Lead Cervical and Lumbar Artificial Disc Market Due to Positive Clinical Results and Emerging Technologies

Overall, the U.S. spinal implants and vertebral compression fracture market is expected to increase and reach nearly $7 billion by 2023

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - March 28, 2017) - According to a new series of reports on the U.S. spinal implants and vertebral compression fracture market by iData Research (www.idataresearch.com), the motion preservation segment will be the fastest growing in the market fueled by the release of a vast array of new devices in already established markets, most notably the cervical (CAD) and lumbar artificial disc (LAD) markets. Procedure number growth, as well as favorable reimbursement policies is expected for these devices driven by positive clinical results involving novel and emerging technologies.

However, traditional fixation procedures will limit growth of the artificial disc market. The traditional cervical, thoracolumbar and interbody fixation and fusion markets are currently the gold standard for treatment of many indications that artificial discs address. These devices cost less than artificial discs, which can be a major preference factor for many doctors and patients.

"Traditional fusion markets are expected to show consistent growth rate but will eventually begin to stabilize in value over the next several years as motion preservation and minimally invasive surgery (MIS) procedures become increasingly common," explains Dr. Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData. "As the U.S. spinal implant market grows in size, more competitors will enter the markets as well as existing competitors broadening their portfolios with new products including motion preservation implants."

Medtronic is the leading competitor in the U.S. motion preservation market and possesses a near monopoly in the interspinous process decompression device market with the X-STOP® device which they obtained after their acquisition of Kyphon in 2007. The company's CAD products include the Prestige® and Bryan® which will further strengthen its stake in the artificial disc market.

DePuy Synthes is the second leading competitor in the U.S. motion preservation market due to the company's strength in the LAD and CAD markets. DePuy Synthes is the only company with both a CAD and a LAD available in the U.S. market: the ProDisc®-L, ProDisc®-C and the INMOTION®. DePuy Synthes is also a leading competitor in other spinal segments, encompassing both traditional and MIS procedures. DePuy Synthes' presence in the overall market will continue to support its position in the artificial disc markets due to brand recognition and loyalty. Additional competitors in the U.S. motion preservation device market include Zimmer Biomet, Globus Medical, Paradigm Spine and NuVasive among others.
