Worldwide spinal implants industry to 2026 – by implant type, type, end-users and geography

The spinal implants market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 3.57% over the forecast period to reach a market size of US$15,304.985 million in 2026 from US$11,983.748 million in 2019.

Spinal implants are gadgets used to empower combination and improve the solidness of the spine, fortify the spine, and treat spinal level distortions. Spinal implants are utilised to treat different issues like scoliosis, spondylolisthesis, kyphosis, and crack. It is essential capacity is to help combine two vertebrae and supplant normal circle material. This strategy is utilised to immobilise vertebrae to take out or altogether diminish the torment brought about by the unusual development of vertebrae through immobilisation. Spine-level treatment alternatives are persistently developing with the presentation of new age spine inserts and gadgets. Further, utilisation of these inserts and gadgets is being one of the viable and suggested alternatives for the treatment of spine misalignments or degenerative changes.

Development saving gadgets are utilised in patients, like children, who have not arrived at skeletal development. Inserts are produced using various materials like titanium, titanium-combination, treated steel, and plastics. Titanium inserts are solid, lightweight, and can be imaged utilising MRI (attractive reverberation imaging). Gadgets are fabricated in various sizes and shapes and a few, like poles, can be formed during a medical procedure to fit the patient’s life structures. Numerous inserts, like cervical plates, are low profile meaning they are not massive and lay compliment against the spine’s life systems. Pedicle screws might be covered with a material to invigorate the combination.

Additionally, as per NINDS (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke), around 80% of adults experience low back torment sooner or later in the course of their lives. It is the single driving reason for incapacity around the world, as announced by the Global Burden of Disease Study (GBD). There are various reasons an individual can insight back torment. The more normal reasons range from injuries and strains, typical mileage that happens in circles and bones, to sciatica. Another low back agony could be identified with contaminations, tumours, and illnesses, for example, kidney stones. Spinal implants are utilised to treat numerous types of back torment and distortion. Issues treated can include: scoliosis, kyphosis, degenerative circle sickness, and break. Its essential capacity is to help meld two vertebrae and supplant normal circle material, which is accordingly, expected to support the spinal embed market development considerably further during the estimated time frame.

Now, taking into account this increasing demand for spinal implants, the existing and emerging market players are adopting various strategies to further increase their market share. For instance, in June 2019, Medtronic completed the acquisition of Titan Spine for an undisclosed amount. Ireland-based Medtronic is a world leader in medical technology, services, and solutions whereas Titan Spine is a Mequon-based medical device developer pioneered in titanium interbody fusion devices featuring a surfacing technology. Interbody implants are spacers that can be inserted between the vertebrae during spinal fusion surgery to help relieve pressure on nerves and hold the vertebrae in place while the fusion occurs. Medtronic maintains its position as a leading innovator in procedural solutions for spine surgery by the acquisition of Titan Spine. Now, Medtronic’s spine division, a part of Restorative Therapies Group, expands its existing spine technologies by adding Titan Spine’s products to its portfolio.

Growth Factors

The rising occurrences of spinal problems combined with the utilisation of negligibly intrusive surgeries are adding to the development of the worldwide spinal implants market. As per an article distributed in 2018 in Global Spine Journal, the yearly total populace having spinal problems incorporates 3.63% lumbar degenerative spine sickness (DSD) and low back torment (LBP) by and large, 0.53% spondylolisthesis. Also, because of the rise of insignificantly obtrusive spine careful (MISS) approaches, it has now gotten achievable and productive for treating a wide scope of spinal problems without long entry point and by staying away from huge harm to muscles encompassing the spine, in this manner bringing about less post-usable agonies and quicker recuperation. Accordingly, the expanded commonness of spinal issues alongside the straightforwardness in treatment by MISS approaches is expected to drive the worldwide spinal implants market.


The expanded treatment procedural expense is going about as an obstruction to the worldwide spinal implants market development. As per an examination distributed in 2019 in National Center for Biotechnology Information, 1862 patients went through various spinal medical procedures and the immediate expense (preoperative counsel, imaging considers, clinic costs, clinical charges, inserts, actual medication therapies, rescue vehicle moves, and post-medical procedure follow up costs) of all spinal intercessions for 1,862 patients in 1 year was $12,389,960. The expense of spinal medical procedures has expanded by 175% worldwide and in the US, the yearly expense of spine care is assessed at $105 billion for every persistent every year. Expanded treatment procedural costs will increment money-related concerns, which is, thus, expected to restrict the market development.

Impact of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a negative impact on the spinal implants market growth as due to the outbreak, various hospitals and clinics got converted into full-fledged COVID centres, limiting other surgical operations. The outbreak is also expected to cause a slowdown in the manufacturing and supply chain of these implants, which is expected to further hurt the market growth.

Competitive Insights

The increasing demand for spinal implants caused by the increasing prevalence of spinal issues across the world has led to the entry of several new players in the spinal implants market. Now, to increase their clientele as well as increase their market share in the upcoming years, many of these market players have taken various strategic actions like partnerships and development of novel solutions which primarily focus on providing enhanced comfort to the patient, which is expected to keep the market competitive and constantly evolving. Major market players like Stryker, Alphatec Spine, Inc., and Orthofix International N.V. have been covered along with their relative competitive strategies and the report also mentions recent deals and investments of different market players over the last few years. The company profiles section details the business overview, financial performance (public companies) for the past few years, key products and services being offered along with the recent deals and investments of these important players in the global spinal implants market.
