Global Femoral Stems Market:
About this market
Technavio’s femoral stems market analysis considers sales from both cementless femoral stems and cemented femoral stems. Our analysis also considers the sales of femoral stems in Asia, Europe, North America, and ROW. In 2018, the cementless femoral stems segment had a significant market share, and this trend is expected to continue over the forecast period. Factors such as bone regeneration and their ability to adapt to different bone structures will play a significant role in the cementless femoral stems segment to maintain its market position. Also, our global femoral stems market report looks at factors such as the increasing prevalence of OA, osteoporosis, and RA, increasing number of hip replacement surgeries, and advances in the femoral stem. However, high cost of hip replacement surgeries and declining reimbursements, shortage of skilled orthopedic surgeons, and limitations of femoral stems may hamper the growth of the femoral stems industry over the forecast period.
Global Femoral Stems Market: Overview
Advances in femoral stems
Femoral stems have undergone significant improvements in terms of material and design. The use of tapered titanium stems has outplaced coated cobalt-chromium stems. Tapered titanium stems offer ease of insertion, less-stress shielding, less blood loss, less thigh pain, leading to short hospital stays. Thus, manufacturers have increased R&D efforts to introduce femoral stems with advanced designs and materials, making them more durable, long-lasting, and dependable. This will lead to the expansion of the global femoral stems market at a CAGR of nearly 4% during the forecast period.
The increasing demand for short stems among young patients
As many young and active patients are undergoing hip replacement, there is an increasing demand for implants that are durable, highly functional, and amenable for future successful revision. Short stems can be easily inserted through minimally inserted surgeries (MIS) and require less bone removal. They reduce or eliminate anterior thigh pain, facilitate physiological proximal bone loading providing better pain relief, radiographic stability, and improved functions. This development is expected to have a positive impact on the overall market growth.
