Metal trauma implants are medical devices which are used for temporarily or permanently restoration of the physiological functioning of skeletal structures and joints. The surgeons picks the implant by assessing several parameters such as size, weight, and type of material most appropriate to the patients. Based on the surgery there are several trauma implant products such as plates, screws, pins, and rods for fixation of the fractured bones. In addition, for ensuring the availability of implants, governments in Asia Pacific region are reducing the prices of implants. For instance, on July 31, 2019, the State Council of the People's Republic of China, announced a comprehensive and systematic approach to reduce the prices of medical devices and consumables.
The Asia Pacific metal trauma implant market is estimated to be valued at US$ 4,935.2 million in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 9.2% during the forecast period (2021-2028).

Asia Pacific Metal Trauma Implant Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown in various countries across the globe have impacted the financial status of businesses across all sectors. The private healthcare sector is one such sectors, which has been majorly impacted by the pandemic.
The pandemic has negatively impacted the growth of Asia Pacific metal trauma implant market, this is due to limited number of orthopedic patients visiting hospitals owing to restricted movement due to lockdown. In addition, the fall in cases of traumatic fractures during the pandemic is further hampering the market growth. For instance, based on a study conducted in the Yogyakarta Special Region (Daerah Istimewa Yogyakarta/DIY), Indonesia to evaluate the epidemiology of traumatic fractures in March-May 2020. It was reported that during the COVID-19 emergency response period in DIY, there was almost 47.68% drop in patients with fractures, an increase in patients injured at home, a decrease in patients referred to another hospital, and an increase in surgically treated closed fractures.
Asia Pacific Metal Trauma Implant Market: Restraint
Implants made of metals have several disadvantages due to which healthcare professionals as well as patients are preferring implants made of others materials such as ceramics and other biomaterials. The disadvantages of metal implants include high elastic modulus that causes stress shielding and toxic effects by ions released from metallic implants. Hence, such disadvantages of metal implants are expected to hinder growth of the Asia Pacific metal trauma implant market over the forecast period.
Major players operating in the Asia Pacific metal trauma implant market include DePuy Synthes Companies (Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc.), Zimmer Biomet, Conformis, Smith & Nephew Plc., Stryker Corporation, UMA Surgicals, Acumed LLC, Orthofix Medical Inc., Siora Surgical Pvt. Ltd., Japan MDM, Inc., KYOCERA Corporation, Meril Life Sciences Pvt. Ltd., Teijin Nakashima Medical Co., Ltd., Auxein Medical Pvt. Ltd., Narang Medical Ltd., Baumer S.A., Waston Medical Co., Ltd., Precision Spine Inc., Biomed Healthtech (P) Ltd, and Matrix Meditec Pvt. Ltd.
Trauma implants are medical devices, which are used for repairing fractured or broken bones and also in surgical treatment of tumor diseases of bones such as shoulders, arms, legs, and skull, among others. Trauma fixation implants take over some of the load-sharing from the damaged bone, so that the implants can withstand repetitive stress that comes with muscle movement. Metallic implants as a load bearing component are widely selected for orthopedic prosthesis due to their superiority over traditional ceramic and polymeric biomaterials. Mostly, the implants are manufactured using titanium alloys and stainless steel, which are further processed with plastic materials. With the application of these metal implants offer support and strength for fixing fractures by improving speed and extent of recovery from serious injuries.
Increasing number of hip and knee replacement procedures can be primarily attributed for the growth of Asia Pacific metal trauma implant market. For instance, based on the 2020 Australian Orthopedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry Annual Report, in 2019, the total number of hip replacement surgeries and knee replacement surgeries were 694,730 and 849,329 respectively in Australia. The metal trauma implants are often used in these procedures. The hip implants are medical devices intended to restore mobility and relieve pain usually associated with arthritis and other hip diseases or injuries, while knee implants are utilized in the replacement of knee joints. Hence, such significant increase in the number of hip and knee replacements in the Asia Pacific region, is expected to augment the Asia Pacific metal trauma implant market growth over the forecast period.
