Total wrist arthroplasty (TWA) is a surgical intervention with the goal of reducing wrist pain and increasing joint mobility for patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and is increasingly being used for other indications such as osteoarthritis (OA) and posttraumatic arthritis. It is recommended in cases where less invasive operative techniques are ineffective and as an alternative to total wrist fusion (TWF). For low-demand patients, total wrist replacement (TWR) provides the necessary range of motion to engage in normal daily activities, although it remains a relatively rare procedure.
Germany represented the largest portion of the market in 2016, holding close to 25% of the regional revenue, and is expected to maintain this dominance through the forecast period. Norway is expected to be the fastest-growing market through 2023, at a CAGR of 4.5%, while the slowest growth will be observed in Greece with a CAGR of 1.3%.
Most of the wrist replacement market is occupied by a few players, including Stryker, Zimmer Biomet, Wright Medical, and Integra LifeSciences. These companies are dominant players in the medical device industry with significant clinical research data driving product adoption as well as expansive sales and distribution networks. Innovation as well as good educational and technical support from these manufacturers can significantly accelerate the uptake of new technologies. There is need for technology development in the bearing surface and the fixation of the hand component of wrist implants, and key players have incentives to invest in the preoperative training of surgeons. Old and new medical device companies looking to enter the small joint replacement market should understand that only through well-designed teaching seminars and efficient communication with surgeons will the market enjoy better growth.
