Artificial discs are advanced medical devices designed to replace damaged or degenerated spinal discs in patients suffering from chronic back pain. These disc prostheses mimic the natural function of the intervertebral discs, providing stability to the spine while allowing for controlled movement. They are considered as a viable alternative to traditional spinal fusion surgery, which eliminates the need to fuse adjacent vertebrae together.
The global artificial discs market has been witnessing significant growth in recent years, driven by the increasing prevalence of spine disorders and the growing demand for minimally invasive surgical procedures.
The growth of the artificial discs market is primarily driven by factors such as technological advancements in disc prosthesis, rising geriatric population, and the increasing preference for minimally invasive surgical procedures. Furthermore, the growing awareness about the benefits of artificial discs, such as reduced hospital stays, quicker recovery times, and improved patient outcomes, is also contributing to the market growth. Moreover, collaborations between key market players and several organization are also expected to boost the market growth. For instance, on October 18, 2023, DiscGenics, Inc., a privately-held, late-stage clinical, biopharmaceutical company, announced a basic science Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), for the development of tissue-engineered artificial discs, which is more cost effective and has lesser side effects.
However, there are certain factors restraining the market growth including high costs associated with artificial disc surgery, limited reimbursement policies, and the availability of alternative treatment options. Additionally, the lack of skilled healthcare professionals proficient in artificial disc surgery poses a challenge to market expansion.
