[224+ Pages Report] According to Facts and Factors, the global smart orthopedic implants market size was valued at USD 24.91 billion in 2022 and is predicted to surpass USD 36.38 billion by the end of 2030. The smart orthopedic implants industry is expected to grow by a CAGR of 4.85%.
Smart orthopedic implants are medical devices well integrated with advanced technologies to offer effective treatment of orthopedic conditions to enhance patient monitoring and diagnostics. These implants make use of electronic components, connectivity features, sensors, and data analytics to offer real-time information regarding the performance of the implants along with the patient's overall well-being.
However, the integration of smart features aims to offer better patient outcomes with increased efficiency in healthcare delivery and patient care.
Surging incidences of orthopedic disorders like fractures and osteoarthritis are driving the demand for smart implants. Further, the global aging population is fostering a high incidence rate of degenerative orthopedic conditions, which often require orthopedic procedures.
Therefore, such a landscape is expected to boost the growth of the global smart orthopedic implants market in the forthcoming years. However, the ongoing technological advancements in sensors, connectivity, and data analytics also contribute to the development of more sophisticated smart orthopedic implants. Manufacturers are innovating with the improved capabilities of these devices, which is expected to widen the scope of the industry.
The smart orthopedic implants offer analysis of data associated with biometrics, wear and tear, and other relevant parameters. Such information helps healthcare professionals in the early diagnosis and treatment planning of the patients. For instance, Stryker successfully took over OrthoSensor, Inc. in January 2021. The latter is a well-reputed company that specializes in sensor technology for total joint replacement.
The global shift towards patient-centric healthcare is paving new avenues for the growth of the smart orthopedic implants industry. Moreover, there is a surging emphasis on personalized medicine and the adoption of smart orthopedic implants, which offer real-time monitoring and personalized treatment plans.
Smart orthopedic implants are ideal for invasive procedures and are increasingly becoming popular because of the reduced recovery time and lower healthcare costs. Such a landscape is poised to widen the scope of the market.
For instance, Zimmer Biomet got FDA clearance in August 2021. Also, it was granted a De Novo classification for coming up with smart knee implants. It is the world’s first product for total knee replacement surgery.
The inclusion of fitness technologies like data analytics, connectivity, and sensors increases the final cost of orthopedic implants. Therefore, affordability is expected to emerge as a huge barrier in the global smart orthopedic implants market. Also, the lack of comprehensive reimbursement policies is further expected to hinder the adoption of smart orthopedic implants.
The collection and translation of patient data by smart implants are likely to raise concerns regarding patients' privacy. Also, the growing number of cyber-attacks is further posing barriers to the smart orthopedic implants industry.
The global smart orthopedic implants market can be segmented into end-user, product, implant procedures, components, and region.
By end-user, the market can be segmented into hospitals, specialty centers, and others. The other segment accounts for the largest share of the smart orthopedic implants industry. The segment includes orthopedic clinics and ambulatory surgical centers.
The use of these smart orthopedic implants in outpatient settings like orthopedic clinics and ambulatory surgical centers aligns with the broader trend of emerging patient care in the market. These centers offer numerous advantages like reduced hospital stays, more convenience, cost-effectiveness, and several others.
Also, these smart orthopedic implants require minimally invasive procedures, which are commonly performed in outpatient settings. The ongoing integration of smart features in orthopedic implants further improves monitoring and post-operative care, thereby making it ideal for outpatient settings where patient recovery and follow-ups are critical.
By product, the market can be segmented into trauma implants, spinal implants, shoulder implants, knee reconstruction, hip reconstruction, and others. The knee reconstruction segment is estimated to grow with the fastest CAGR during the anticipated period. Knee orthopedic problems like injuries and osteoarthritis are highly prevalent in today’s society, especially among old age people.
Therefore, it is driving the immense demand for knee reconstruction procedures all across the globe. Furthermore, healthcare providers and patients are inclined more toward smart orthopedic implants because of their improved monitoring capabilities. Also, it leads to the early detection of potential issues in improved post-operative care, which is further expected to foster developments in the segment.
By implant procedure, the market can be segmented into partial replacement, total replacement, and others. The total replacement procedure segment is poised to witness a high growth rate during the forecast period. The aging population is associated with growing incidences of orthopedic conditions, including degenerative joint diseases.
Therefore, it is likely to drive the high demand for joint knee placement procedures. Advancements in smart orthopedic implant technology, like data connectivity and sensors, are further converging people's interest in total joint replacement procedures. These advancements help enhance diagnostic monitoring and overall patient outcomes. Such a landscape is anticipated to foster growth opportunities in the global smart orthopedic implants market.
By component, the market can be segmented into electronic components and implants. The electronic component segment is anticipated to swipe the largest share of the global market. The advancements in electronic components like enhanced connectivity, improved sensor technology, and miniaturization are expected to foster the development of more sophisticated smart orthopedic implants.
Furthermore, the increasing acceptance of Internet of Things technology in the healthcare sector is paving new avenues for growth prospects in the segment. Also, the electronic components facilitate data exchange and connectivity between the external devices and implants, which further improves the patient care experience.
