Future growth of the cervical fixation market is expected to be strongly limited by cervical artificial discs; single-level cervical fixation procedures will be affected most severely by artificial discs. Another factor slowing the growth of the cervical fixation market is the increasing number of patients ignoring their need for cervical procedures.
Surgeons can opt to install fixation devices from an anterior or posterior approach. Cervical fixation devices are consequently designed specifically for each approach, and the cervical fixation market is segmented by approach. Plate fixation systems are typically implanted via an anterior approach, while cables, wiring and screw/rod fixation systems are installed via a posterior approach. Occipitocervical fusion is an exception; it is performed using a posterior approach and involves the implantation of a plate in the occiput bone in the skull. The plate is then fixed with wiring or screw/rod systems to the cervical region of the spine.

DePuy procured the leading position following the merger with Synthes in 2012. Individually, both companies historically fell short of Medtronics market share. Medtronic has a strong anterior and posterior portfolio. The Vertex® family of screws was once the source of a large litigation with DePuy Spine. In September 2009, Zimmer began its acquisition of Abbott Spine, which included the addition of Abbotts cervical anterior and posterior fixation devices. Other companies analyzed include Globus Medical, Aesculap Inc., Styker, NuVasive and K2M.
