The long-term growth of the market will be strongly driven by the increasing demand for revision surgeries. The revision knee implant segment was the fastest growing of the overall knee replacement device market in 2017. The growth rate will continue to increase, which can be attributed to the rise in younger knee implant patients. Since the lifespan of knee implants is approximately 15 years, the implants of younger patients will not last to the end of their life and will thus require revision.
Knee replacement procedures are the most common large joint replacement procedures in the United States. The knee is a hinge-like joint that comprises the femur (thighbone), tibia and fibula (shin bones) and patella (knee cap). The patella floats in the patellar tendon over the articulation of the femur and tibia. Like the hip, the knee is a joint that bears the entire weight of the body and is prone to degenerative wear. The femur articulates with the tibia by the two condyles, which are large rounded protrusions at the end of the thighbone.

Of the many companies in the United States Knee Replacement market, Zimmer Biomet was the leader, followed by Styker and DePuy Synthes. Although Zimmer Biomet remains a market leader in the large joint device market, their sales in both the knee and hip replacement markets declined slightly in 2017 as a result of supply issues related to production delays from the companys Warsaw North Campus facility. Strykers flagship product is a total knee arthroplasty solution, the Triathlon® Knee System, available in cementless and cemented variations. One of DePuys more popular knee implants is the Attune® Primary Total Knee System, which received some good publicity in recent years.
