Spinal Fusion Devices Market - Insights
Spinal fusion devices are used to provide stability to spinal structure, which has lost stability due to a fracture, degenerative disorders of the spine, trauma, tumors, and deformity. Spinal cord injuries majorly happen due to various reasons such as a blocked blood supply, infections, injuries, and compression by a fractured bone or a tumor. Spinal fusion devices technology and mechanism of functioning has evolved over the years. Advanced plating systems offer improved stability and structural integrity. Spinal fusion devices have innovative locking mechanisms and screw systems, which can have self-drilling and self-tapping functions, made from modern manufacturing material such as titanium alloy, and single as well as double holes per vertebrae through which the screw fixation is done.
Rapid product launch and frequent approval of novel spinal fusion devices are expected to drive growth of the global spinal fusion market
In 2015, Aesculap Implant Systems, a division of B. BRAUN MELSUNGEN AG, launched Modulift Vertebral Body Replacement System (VBR). It is the latest generation of expandable cage technology. In 2017, Stryker’s Spine division launched Serrato pedicle screw, a unique dual-lead screw intended for use in the non-cervical spine. In 2016, Stryker launched Aero-C Cervical Stability System at the meeting of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons in Orlando. Entry of these novel products in market is expected to support the growth of global spinal fusion devices market in near future. Furthermore, frequent approvals of innovative products is also expected to drive market growth. For instance in 2018, Orthofix International N.V., received U S Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance of FORZA XP Expandable Spacer System. FORZA XP is designed to restore normal disc height in patients suffering from degenerative disc disease. In 2016, Orthofix International N.V. received US Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance for FORZA PTC (Peek Titanium Composite) Spacer System, and Wenzel Spine, Inc., received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market VariLift-LX, an interbody fusion device for stand-alone use in the lumbar spine.
The global spinal fusion devices market was valued at US$ 7,462.4 million in 2016 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 4.6% over the forecast period (2017 – 2025).

Increasing prevalence of spinal deformities is expected to drive growth of the global spinal fusion device market
Factors responsible for spinal deformities include weight, diet, smoking, and other lifestyle factors. Early onset of degenerative spinal changes is attributed to the toxins in cigarette smoke damaging the cartilage of spine. According to World Health Organization (WHO), more than 1.1 billion people smoked tobacco in 2015 worldwide. According to a study published in SpineUniverse in 2017, disc herniation is the most common indication for spinal surgery, and around 75% of all spinal surgeries were performed for herniated disc. Increasing prevalence of spinal deformities due to unhealthy lifestyle and high chances of disc herniation are expected to drive growth of the spinal fusion devices market in near future.
Furthermore, key players in the spinal fusion devices market are focusing of strategic mergers and acquisitions to expand their product portfolio and to strengthen their position in new geographies. For instance in 2016, Zimmer acquired LDR Holding Corporation to enhance innovation and growth of their spine segment. In 2016, Globus Medical, Inc. acquired the international operations and distribution channels of Alphatec Holdings, Inc. This acquisition has expanded company's product portfolio and provided an immediate access to Japan and increased presence and penetration in other geographical areas, though the Alphatec's extensive international distributer to increase its international sales.
Key players operating in global spinal fusion devices market include Zimmer Biomet Holdings, Inc., Inc., Stryker Corporation, Inc., Exactech, Inc., Orthofix International N.V., Globus Medical, Inc., NuVasive, Inc., Medtronic Plc., Depuy Synthes, B. Braun Melsungen AG, Wenzel Spine, Inc., K2M Group Holdings, Inc., Centinel Spine, Inc., and Spineart Geneva SA.
Spinal fusion devices are used in spinal surgeries for patients suffering from various spinal diseases such as degenerative disc disease (DDD) and herniated disc. Spinal fusion devices are implanted into the spinal cord of the patient. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has placed spinal fusion devices under Class II of medical devices category. Moderate to severe spine problems need to be treated with surgical approach such as spinal fusion wherein the spinal vertebrae are either removed and fixated with implants or fused with the help of various fusion methods. Quality of life can be improved by spinal fusion surgeries. Rising prevalence of spinal cord diseases is expected to increase adoption of these surgeries.
Frequent approval from regulatory bodies to latest spinal fusion devices is expected to be the major driver for growth of global spinal fusion devices market over the forecast period. In 2016, Spineart Geneva SA received US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for its first range of titanium interbody, named - JULIET Ti PO, OL and TL interbody systems. The JULIETTi PO, OL and TL interbody systems are the range of titanium interbody implants. It include a full range of sizes to for diverse anatomies. The smooth bullet-shaped nose, lateral sides and chamfers of the implant are polished to preserve endplates, nerve roots, and soft tissues during insertion. The Ti-LIFE Technology micro-porous scaffold mimics the bone trabecular structure, which enables cell colonization and promotes bone ingrowth. In 2016, Centinel Spine, Inc. received U.S. FDA approval for STALIF L Minimally-Invasive Lateral Integrated Interbody System. It has advantages in minimally-invasive spinal fusion surgery. Furthermore, increasing prevalence of spinal disorder is also expected to increase demand for spinal fusions devices and hence is expected to drive spinal fusion devices market growth in near future. For instance, according to a study published by World Health Organization (WHO) in 2013, globally around 250,000 and 500,000 people suffer from a spinal cord injury (SCI). According to research published by the American Academy of Pain Medicine (AAPM) in 2016, women are 1.38 times more likely to suffer cervical degenerative disc disease (DDD) than men.
