Major factors driving market growth are the increasing incidence of spinal cord injuries, the growing preference for minimally invasive surgeries, and a rising geriatric population.
By product type, the pedicle screw systems market is segmented into monoaxial, polyaxial, and other pedicle screw systems. In 2018, the polyaxial pedicle screw systems segment is estimated to command the largest share of the pedicle screw systems market. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the increasing incidences and prevalence of spinal cord injuries.
On the basis of surgery type, the pedicle screw systems market has been segmented into open surgery and minimally invasive surgery. The open surgery segment is expected to account for the largest share of the pedicle screw systems market in 2018, the report states. The large share of this segment can be attributed to the rising geriatric population and increasing incidence of spinal deformities.
Based on indication, the pedicle screw systems market has been segmented into spinal degeneration, spinal trauma, spine deformities, and other indications. In 2018, the spinal degeneration segment is projected to account for the largest share of the pedicle screw systems market. The increasing incidence of degenerative spinal disorders is the major driving factor for this market.
By application, the market is categorized into thoracolumbar fusion and cervical fusion. In 2018, thoracolumbar fusion is expected to command the largest share of this market. The increasing incidences of lumbar degenerative disc diseases and the launch of new products are key factors driving the growth of the thoracolumbar fusion segment.
The market is dominated by North America, followed by Europe. North America will continue to dominate the market during the forecast period. The rising geriatric population and increasing incidence of spinal disorders in this region are the major factors supporting the growth of the pedicle screw systems market in North America.
Stringent regulatory frameworks and time-consuming product approval processes may hinder the growth of the pedicle screw systems market to a certain extent.
Major players in the pedicle screw systems market include Globus Medical, DePuy Synthes, Zimmer Biomet Holdings Inc., B. Braun, Stryker Corp., and Medtronic plc.
