Cervical Fixation Market Analysis | United States | 2017-2023 | MedCore
Spinal fusion is a surgical procedure designed to combine two or more vertebrae together, eventually forming a fused bone. Spinal fusion is primarily used for eliminating or significantly reducing the pain caused from the abnormal movement of the vertebrae. Supplemental bone tissue, either autograft or allograft, is used for promoting bone tissue growth. A union of two vertebral bodies is referred to as a single-level fusion. Fusion is accomplished by using either an instrumented or non-instrumented surgical approach. Instrumented cervical fusions incorporate fixation devices to secure and stabilize the fusion site and interbody devices to fill the intervertebral disc space as well as enhance and promote fusion. Non-instrumented fusions use bone tissue to promote growth, but do not incorporate any implant devices into the procedures. Markets for interbody devices, including those used in the cervical region of the spine, are discussed in a subsequent chapter. All procedures and markets in this analysis are instrumented fusions because they involve the implantation of plates, screws, rods, wiring or cable fixation devices.

Overall growth in the number of procedures performed is driven primarily by the demographics of the target population requiring spinal fusion, but growth may begin to slow over the forecast period due to the emergence and increasing prevalence of cervical artificial discs (CADs). The success of CADs is expected to increasingly cannibalize cervical spinal fusion procedures because they offer a motion preserving alternative for many cervical fusion cases and do not require accompanying fixation devices.

In 2016, DePuy Synthes was the leading competitor in the U.S. cervical fixation market, with a large share. The company was also a leading competitor in the posterior cervical fixation market. In December 2007, Medtronic was forced to discontinue its Vertex® posterior screw/rod system after a jury determined that the company had infringed upon a patent for polyaxial screw technology licensed to DePuy Spine. The Trinica Select® anterior cervical plate system, along with the Dynesys® dynamic stabilization system led Zimmers spine sales, which reflects growth as a result of the Abbott Spine acquisition. Other companies analyzed include Aesculap Inc., Globus Medical, NuVasive, K2M, Stryker, Orthofix and Alphatec Spine.
