Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: aap Implantate, Aegis Spine, Alphatec Spine, Becton Dickinson, BMKOREA, Cook Medical, DePuy Synthes, Elite Surgical, Evolutis, Exactech, G-21, Kyungwon Medical, Medacta Companies, Olympus, Osseon, SOMATEX Medical Technologies, Synimed Synergie Ingénierie Médicale, TECRES, Thiebaud, and VEXIM.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is increasing use of antibiotic-loaded bone cement. With growing infection-related risks, vendors and researchers have been focusing on developing antibiotic-loaded bone cement. This is expected to drive the adoption rates of bone cement mixing devices. For instance, the use of antibiotic-loaded bone cement for the treatment of complex musculoskeletal infections is established. Most commercially available premixed preparations comprise 0.5 g-1 g of antibiotic per 40 g of polymethacrylate. However, these preparations are currently approved for use in second-stage reimplantation.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is growing prevalence of orthopedic disorders. There has been a significant increase in the number of orthopedic disorders across the world in the last decade. Limited physical activity and poor eating habits can negatively influence the body's homeostasis. Homeostat failure intensifies with age, making most people aged 60 years and above susceptible to orthopedic diseases such as arthritis and spinal deformity. Osteoarthritis in people of this age group can affect the joints and put stress on the knees, hips, and lower spine. Sophisticated treatment options and improved standards of healthcare have increased life expectancy, resulting in a further rise in the population of this age group.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is complications associated with the use of bone cement. Complications associated with bone cement implantation may hamper the growth prospects of the market. Although developed economies are witnessing an adoption of antibiotic-loaded bone cement, the emerging economies still prefer non-antibiotic bone cement, which is associated with increased complications. Bone cement implantation syndrome (BCIS) is one of the major factors posing a challenge to the global bone cement market. BCIS is a known cause of intraoperative morbidity and mortality in individuals undergoing cemented bone surgery. It is a rare but potentially risky complication for individuals.
