The Asia-Pacific markets for spinal implants are a major component of the global spinal implant market. This report covers the major spinal implant markets (excluding MIS) within the Asia-Pacific region, and includes Australia, Japan and South Korea. All major market segments are detailed, including spinal fusion implants, non-fusion implants and vertebral compression fracture (VCF) treatments.
Major changes and developments are expected to occur within this industry over the forecast period, particularly in the field of non-fusion implants. Across the Asia-Pacific region, the VCF and non-fusion segments will experience high growth compared to the slower growing, but larger and more established fusion market.
The spinal implant market is considered by many to be the most exciting and controversial segment of the orthopedics market. Though the spinal implant market has traditionally been viewed as a segment within the orthopedics market, many manufacturers view spine as a key business division separate from traditional orthopedics.
For the purposes of this report, the Asia-Pacific spinal fusion market is segmented into cervical fixation, thoracolumbar fixation and interbody devices.
In addition to the spinal fusion market, this report includes dynamic stabilization, artificial discs and VCF, as segments of the total spinal implant market. The most major change in this market is expected to be the emergence and increasing prevalence of motion preservation technology.
