The dominant area of technologies and products for the management of spine disorders (despite a myriad of new technology alternatives) remains, and will remain, the use of posterior pedicle screw fusion systems. This well established approach accounts for over over 20% of the total global sales of spine surgery products and will continue to grow (despite even more dramatic growth of other spine technologies) to nearly a quarter of all sales during the next ten years. Other areas of product and market development are growing at rates as high as 33% annually and as low as 4% annually. Despite pressures from cost containment in healthcare that are squeezing prices on spine surgery products and challenging growth in procedure volume rates, the field of spine surgery remains one of the strongest medtech markets, according to a new report from MedMarket Diligence, LLC.
