The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Spinal Trauma Devices Market
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global spinal trauma devices market: DePuy Synthes, Globus Medical, Medtronic and Stryker.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Arthrex, B. Braun Melsungen AG, NuVasive, ReWalk Robotics, Spinal Technology and Zimmer Biomet.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is increase in volume of spinal non-fusion procedures. Many medical facilities are opting for spinal non-fusion procedures over fusion procedures. Because spinal non-fusion procedures help to preserve the mobility and stability of the spine and alleviate back and leg pain while enduring heavy loads.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing incidence of spinal trauma cases. A severe spinal injury leads to a complete or incomplete change in the function of the spinal cord. In an incomplete injury, the spinal cord is partially injured, and the person can retain some functions, whereas, in a complete injury, the spinal cord is fully injured, affecting all the functions. It is possible to regain some functions through treatment and physical therapy. Motor vehicle accidents, falls, sports injuries are the major cause of spinal injury.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is complications associated with spinal trauma devices. Similar to all surgeries and procedures, spinal trauma device procedures may also cause complications. The surgical procedure itself may cause neurological or soft tissue damage and leads to paralysis. In some cases, bones take a longer time to fuse with spinal implants, which delays their union or may not fuse, resulting in non-union. These complications can lead the patients to undergo a second surgical procedure for bone fusion.
