Arthroscopy Devices – Increasing Geriatric Population Provides a Sea of Opportunities
The examination of inside structures of the body is known as arthroscopy and the devices used for examination are known as arthroscopy devices. It is a minimally invasive procedure and is performed by using small probe through an incision. The primary application of arthroscopy is diagnosis of inner structure of the body. As the name suggests, surgical arthroscopy is the use of these devices during surgical procedures. Arthroscopy is widely used by orthopedic doctors to treat bone disorders and joint problems such as knee, shoulder and elbow related disorders.
Arthroscopy devices include mechanical instruments, motorized instruments, electrosurgical instruments and special instruments such as probes, punches, shavers, electrocautery, laser, ACL sets, meniscus repair sets respectively.
As the arthroscopy procedure is minimally invasive, it helps avoid post-surgery complications, infection during surgery and significantly reduces patient recovery time.
High cases of joint replacement surgery is leading the growth of arthroscopy devices market in North America
Increasing incidence of joint replacement in North America is providing opportunity for the growth of arthroscopy devices market. According to Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI), around 113,000 knee and hip surgeries are performed in Canada annually. According to the same source, during the period 2009 to 2015, knee replacement surgery and hip replacements surgery increased by 20.3% and 20% respectively. According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in the U.S. during 2013-2015 nearly 54.4million adults were diagnosed with arthritis and it is expected to reach 78.4million by 2040. These instances will increase the sale of arthroscopy devices in the near future.
Moreover, incorporating different technologically features such as wireless camera heads and high-definition monitors will boost adoption of arthroscopy devices globally. Major players are offering customizable devices to doctors for enhancing its devices’ market presence. For instance, Olympus offers multi-specialty digital imaging platform to specialize each procedure along with maintained standards and enables healthcare professional to record, store and share high quality moving images.
Furthermore, enhanced design of arthroscopic device with steam sterilization and complex cameras offered by companies such as Smith & Nephew helps in increasing aoption of such devices.
The global arthroscopy devices market was valued at US$ 3,910.7 million in 2016 and is expected to witness a robust CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period (2017 – 2025).

Increase aging population is expected to be one of the primary factor for the growth of arthroscopy devices market
According to the data of Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation, in 2016, 103 million people in India were over 60 years of age. Also, as per data published by Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the geriatric population accounted for 17.26% and 14.50% of the overall population in the U.K. and U.S., respectively in 2014 and the number is expected to steadily increase.
As the rate of knee replacement and hip replacement surgical procedures is high among the geriatric population, it is expected that the aging population will be the major factor for the growth of arthroscopy devices market in the near future.
Increase in arthroscopic surgeries is expected to fuel the growth in arthroscopy devices market
Continuous rise in aging population is the major factor leading to rise in arthroscopic surgery procedures around the globe. As per the stats published by Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, in 2012-13, 33,682 patients aged over 55 years were admitted in hospitals for knee arthroscopy.
Furthermore, according to the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (U.N. DESA), in 2015, 1 in 8 people were aged over 60 years, which is expected to increase to 1 in 6 people by 2030. It is expected that this high increase in aging population will support the growth in number of arthroscopic procedures worldwide.
The technological advancements in arthroscopic devices such as high definition camera, LCD touch panel interface, deflectable tip and flexible endo-eye video scopes are also the factors supporting to increase the adoption of arthroscopy devices in healthcare facilities around the globe.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure performed by surgeons to visualize, diagnose and treat the joint related disease. The surgeon makes a small incision through which they insert the probe contain a small lens and lightening system to visualize the inside structure. The arthroscopic surgery is performed to treat the acute or chronic injury related to knee, shoulder, hip and wrist by avoiding post-surgery complications, infection and appears minimum scars at surgery site.
There are various applications of arthroscopy devices in knee, shoulder and hip implantation and among these knee implantation contributes the major market share followed by shoulder implantation supported by the increase in cases of knee and shoulder replacement surgery procedures worldwide due to increase in number of obese and aging population.
Among product types, the arthroscopy implants segment accounts for major market share and is expected to retain its dominance throughout the forecast period. This is mainly attributed to increasing number of knee, shoulder and hip implantation surgeries worldwide.
Rapid advancements in technology has led to increasing adoption of arthroscopy devices, in turn creating a highly conducive environment for growth of the market. It is expected that North America and Asia-Pacific region will show high growth rate during the forecast period, mainly due to increasing geriatric population and growing number of injuries necessitating knee and shoulder surgery.
The surgery is especially preferred by sportspersons, due to its low recovery time and minimally-invasive nature. Also, the growth is supported by increased rate of knee surgery. The leading cause behind increased rate of joint pain is overweight and aging population.
This report segments the global arthroscopy devices market on the basis of product type, application, and geography. On the basis of product type, the market is categorized into arthroscopes, arthroscopy shavers, arthrosopy fluid management system, arthroscopy implants, arthroscopy radio frequency systems and arthroscopy visualization systems. On the basis of therapeutic application, the market is divided into knee implants, shoulder implants, hip implants and others. Among all therapeutic application, knee implants segment dominated the arthroscopy devices market, due to increase in knee implant surgery procedure rate around the globe.
