Europe Market Report for Bone Graft Substitutes 2017 – MedCore
Bones are biologically active tissues that allow for movement, provide protection for the bodys other organs and serve as a production center for red and white blood cells. When bones are diseased or damaged, bone grafts and bone graft substitutes are used for bridging the resulting void or for providing the support that has been lost. The transplanted (or implanted) material provides a scaffold on which the body can generate new bone tissue, thereby repairing the skeletal system. The most common usage of such materials is for dental implants to replace missing teeth. Within the orthopedic field, however, spinal fusion surgeries are the largest driver of bone graft and bone graft substitute usage. Direct competition for bone graft substitutes comes from bone morphogenetic proteins which, although more expensive, are more effective at stimulating bone growth. Another source of competition is the rise of the motion preservation market for spinal surgery.

General Report Contents Market Analyses include: Unit Sales, ASPs, Market Value & Growth Trends Market Drivers & Limiters for each chapter segment Competitive Analysis for each chapter segment Section on recent mergers & acquisitionsAs of 2016, the largest and fastest growing segment in the market was for synthetic bone graft substitutes. The strong growth of the synthetic market was a result of the affordability of synthetic products, as well as the strict regulations of allograft and DBM product usage throughout Europe. Furthermore, synthetic products have a very low risk of infection, which is another driver of growth.Both the smallest and fastest declining segment was the DBM market. The decline in the DBM market was a result of high price and lack of clinical evidence regarding the products benefits. DBM products are commonly banned in the Scandinavian regions. While the majority of the 15 countries show a decline in DBM, both in price and quantity, consumption of DBM products in the U.K. and Switzerland are set to show moderate increases. This is due to the strong nation-wide beliefs in the products. Surgeons in these countries believe in the product and it is predicted that their demand will remain constant over the forecast period.The second largest segment in 2016 was the allograft market. The larger ASP of allograft material allowed it to remain the market leader until recently. Allografts were particularly popular in the U.K. and Spain. While allograft material had been on the decline in Italy due to cultural disapproval, it is predicted that the Italian market will, over the forecast period, grow more accepting of using these materials.
