Growth is expected to keep pace with the overall spinal fusion market, with major drivers including the growth of the over-65 population. The historic increase in obesity rates over previous decades may also play a role. This includes a variety of instrumentation but excludes those devices covered in other segments of this report (i.e. interbody devices, fixation and so on). Due to the variation in such instrumentation, unit sales are considered as an average package of instrumentation used in a typical spinal fusion procedure.
Spinal instrumentation is used to stabilize the spine during fusion procedures, typically by lessening the pressure put on the spine until successful fusion has occurred. This ensures that bone growth does not occur in a way which further impedes proper movement, and that growth is as efficient as possible. As a category, spinal instrumentation includes a wide variety of products, including fixation products discussed in the cervical and thoracolumbar fixation segments of this report.
