The shoulder reconstruction device market, was the fastest growing segment within the orthopedic small bone & joint market in 2014. This trend is attributed to the prevalence of shoulder arthroplasty procedures in the U.S. due to increased surgeon experience and education, as well as improved device technology resulting in greater patient outcomes. Therefore, surgeons are increasingly making use of more expensive reversed shoulder devices for cases of both arthritis and fracture.

“The rapid uptake of arthroplasty devices due to increased surgeon experience and education, as well as improved device technology, will result in greater patient outcomes,” explains Dr. Kamran Zamanian, CEO of iData. “As a result, the shoulder market is seeing high procedure and unit sales number growth; however, market growth is slightly diminished due to capitated pricing.”

The majority of procedures and market value reside with the reconstruction device segment due both to the higher unit sales numbers and the much higher average selling price (ASP) that the segment commands. The largest sub-segment within this market in 2014 was the reversed shoulder implant market due to its higher ASP compared to all other sub-segments except revision implants. The reversed implant segment has also experienced strong growth due to surgeons using these devices to fix previously failed surgeries as well as leveraging device efficacy in cases with multiple ailments such as arthritis, rotator cuff tears and instability.
