Joint diseases and related conditions causes degradation of cartilage and fluid between bones, which is necessary for smooth, painless, and quick movement of joints. Degenerative disorders such as osteoarthritis and stress related conditions results in abnormalities in the joints, which in turn, requires surgical procedure, arthroplasty. Arthroplasty is the medical procedure to treat joints for effective and pain free movement of the interlinked bones. The procedure is mostly carried out for large joints such as hip, shoulder, elbow, and knees. An ideal artificial joint is made to withstand joint biocompatibility, wear, kinetic impacts, and antibacterial properties.
Various materials are used such as ceramic (silica, zirconia, hydroxyapatite, titanium nitride, and silicon nitride), alloys (titanium and Chromium cobalt based alloys), Oxinium, and polyethylene (cross-linked polyethylene and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene). However, the combination of materials such as metal-on-metal, metal-on-ceramic, ceramic-on-metal, metal-on-polyethylene, and ceramic-on-polyethylene are widely used in the market.

Rising geriatric population and obese individuals is leading to the musculoskeletal disorders, hypertension, and other lifestyle diseases. Osteoarthritis is the most prevalent musculoskeletal disease affecting geriatric population, causing a rise in demand for artificial joints. Moreover, the artificial joints with integrated circuits and other R&D initiatives relevant to the artificial joints accessing brain neuron impulses are expected to further drive growth of the market. However, factors such as high cost of artificial joints and product recalls are expected to hamper growth of the market. According to the estimates of American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR), hip or knee surgeries are performed on around 7 million people in the U.S. Hip and Knee surgeries account for more than 85% of the total joint replacement surgeries in the U.S. Similarly, according to National Joint Registry, in 2016, around 101,651 hip, 108,713 knees, 6,967 shoulders, and 722 elbow replacement surgeries were performed in U.K.
The global artificial joints market is witnessing a launch of novel technologies which are expected to increase the efficiency of joint replacement surgeries. In 2017, the Corin Group introduced Optimized Positioning System (OPS) for hip replacement surgeries. OPS helps surgeons in determining the position and orientation of hip implant on the basis patient’s anatomy and movement. In 2017, Stryker Corporation introduced robotic arm assisted total knee arthroplasty, to be used with Mako system. This is the first robotic technology that could be used for total knee, hip, and partial knee replacements.
Global artificial joints market is oligopolistic in nature with few players holding majority of the share. Various strategies are adopted by market players such as new product launches, acquisitions, and agreements, in order to retain their market position. In 2017, Exactech Inc., a US based medical device maker, announced that it agreed to be acquired by TPG Capital to go private. With the purchase, the private equity firm plans to compete with larger players in the orthopedic industry.
