MediPoint: Elbow Replacement - South America Analysis and Market Forecasts
South America elbow replacement market was estimated at US$0.7m in 2016 across the three markets (Argentina, Brazil, and Chile) covered in this report. By the end of the forecast period in 2023, it is estimated that the market will grow to approximately US$1.0m at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.5%.
Total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) is one of the five procedures that make up the extremity joint market; the others are shoulder, wrist, digit, and ankle. As the general population ages, the number of arthritis cases and elbow fractures increase, contributing largely to the number of elbow replacements performed. Although arthritis in small joints occurs far less frequently than at the hip or knee joint, the physical impairments for patients with extremity arthritis are equivalent to those of other forms of arthritis. The disability of these joints can severely hinder a person’s ability to engage in recreational activities, perform vocational duties, or even carry out the activities of daily living.
Key drivers of the elbow replacement market in the forecast period are -
- The growing global aging population and rising prevalence of diseases such as osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
- Patient preference for an active lifestyle, leading to the choice of total joint replacement over joint fusion.
- Continued efforts from manufacturers to promote and educate patients and surgeons about extremity implants.
Brazil represented the largest portion of the market in 2016, holding 75% of the regional revenue, and is expected to maintain this dominance through the forecast period. Brazil is expected to be the fastest-growing market through 2023, while Argentina and Chile will have CAGRs of 3.8% and 4.2% respectively.
Most of the elbow replacement market is occupied by a few players including Wright Medical, Stryker, Zimmer Biomet, and Integra LifeSciences. These companies are dominant players in the medical device industry with significant clinical research data driving product adoption and expansive sales and distribution networks. Elbow prostheses tend to be loss-leaders or barely profitable, and therefore market share is expected to sway towards larger companies with ample financial resources to weather any losses.
