China Market Overview for Small Bone and Joint Orthopedic Devices 2016 - MedView
The Chinese small bone and joint orthopedic market is comprised of shoulder reconstruction, elbow repair, hand and wrist devices and foot and ankle devices. The small bone and joint orthopedic device market is separate from the large joint and trauma markets, although the distinction is sometimes unclear. As a result, defining small joint devices can be challenging. Similar to large joint devices, many of the small joint devices are involved in elective procedures, and consequently these devices generally command higher selling prices. Conversely, the small joint device market is similar to the trauma device market, where devices may not have high prices or significant price growth, but are involved in essential surgery and are always in demand. Small joints such as shoulders, elbows, hands and feet have not received as much attention as hip and knee treatments until recently, but have experienced strong and consistent growth because of the clinically underserved areas that they represent.
