Global Lumbar Disc Replacement Device Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to over 100 countries across the globe, and the World Health Organization declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.
COVID-19 affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand of drugs, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Egypt, and others faced problems regarding transportation of drugs from one place to another.
However, the COVID-19 pandemic had a negative impact on the global lumbar disc replacement device market. The spread of coronavirus is negatively impacting the sales of the global lumbar disc replacement device market which are majorly used for spine surgeries as many surgeries were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. For instance, in July 2022, according to an article published by the Life Science Intelligence, Inc., a Saler of a consulting and market intelligence provider for the medical technology industry decreased by less than 13% in 2020 to just about US$7.2 billion. The necessity for in-patient recuperation was lessened by new technologies, which also shortened or times and simplified spine procedures. Ambulatory surgical facilities could be used for procedures, blunting the impact of COVID-19 limits in hospitals These technological gains are expected to have a lasting effect and drive future sales in this segment.
