Vertebroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure which is used for treating a compression fracture of the spinal vertebrae in which a special cement is injected into a fractured vertebra by repairing the strength of the collapsed bone and relieving spinal pain. Vertebroplasty is performed for patients suffering with severe pain that disables them from normal functions and also if the duration of the pain is more than two months. Following are some symptoms for where Vertebroplasty is used for compression fractures of the spine and to deliver mechanical strength to the injured vertebra by inserting bone cement. Spine compression fractures occurs mainly due to osteoporosis, cancerous deposits in the spine, or spinal injuries, and other causes. Various clinical evaluation and a physical examination are carried out before procedure so as to localize the fracture site such as spine X-rays, MRI, CT, or isotope bone scans. It is performed as an outpatient procedure, under local anesthesia and image guidance. According to International Osteoporosis Foundation, osteoporosis causes more than 8.9 million fractures annually and 58% of spine fractures occurs in women. Increasing funding for research from governments for advanced medical treatment and target-specific drug delivery is expected to drive growth of the global vertebroplasty needles market.
Vertebroplasty Needles Market: Drivers and Restraints
The demand for vertebroplasty needles is fueled by increasing in prevalence of spine disorder, as per the study conducted in the U.S., low back pain alone affects 80% of the population, while 1%–2% of the population suffers from low back-related disorders. Increasing back-related problems is leading to increasing demand for spine needles. Spine anesthesia or treatment for spine nerve blockage is also expected to fuel demand for spine anesthesia needles over the forecast period. Moreover strong distribution network is one of the key factors driving company revenues and ensuring higher penetration of products. Companies enter into various strategic collaborations and agreements with distributors and suppliers, and conduct promotion activities to ensure better distribution and visibility of products, for instance in October 2010, Osseon Therapeutics, Inc. signed an agreement with DePuy Spine, Inc. for distribution of its Osseoflex steerable spine augmentation needles in the U.S. market. In addition to this increasing focus on catering to growing demand for efficient healthcare systems in various developed countries is expected to fuel need for more and efficient advanced medical equipment, devices and procedures. Technological advancements in the medical field is also resulting in increasing the number of procedures performed for spine diseases, cancers, epidural indications, target-specific drug delivery etc., thereby leading to rising demand for needles. However, raising awareness of needle-free injection technology is expected to hamper revenue growth of the vertebroplasty market over the forecast period.
