The Global Thumb Arthritis Market is expected to grow at an approximate CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period.
Thumb or carpometacarpal (CMC) joint arthritis is a common type of arthritis affecting the hands. In the patients with thumb arthritis, the cushion-like cartilage inside the CMC joint breaks down, causing the bones to rub against each other. Some of the common symptoms of the disease are inclusive of thumb joint pain, thumb base swelling, besides others. The prevalence of the thumb arthritis is increasing which is the major driver for the market growth. In 2016, according to a study published in the HAND (American Association for Hand Surgery) journal, the prevalence of the thumb CMC osteoarthritis was estimated to be around 8% to 12% in the general population. Moreover, growing geriatric and obese population along with the rising healthcare expenditure is estimated to boost the market growth during the forecast period. According to the World Health Organization in 2016, approximately more than 1.9 billion adults, were estimated to be overweight, accounting for 650 million obese people. Additionally, according to the World Health Organization, the world’s geriatric population is estimated to reach 2 billion by 2050 from 900 million in 2015. However, the high cost of the surgical therapeutics along with related complications is estimated to restrain the market growth during the forecast period. According to a study published in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal in 2016, the cost of therapeutic trapeziectomy with LRTI for a majority of the patients (89%) was estimated to be about around USD 2,576.
