Surgical procedures that require the use of orthopedic biomaterials are generally associated with diseases and indications that become more prevalent in the population with an increase in age, such as osteoarthritis of the spine and knee.

A lack of product differentiation across similar injection cycle products has led to commoditization, which has stifled innovation and the further development of new products. The prices of HA viscosupplementation products in Japan have drastically decreased since their introduction and are among the lowest in the world.

While this report suite contains all Japanese orthobiologics market data, each of the markets are also available as stand alone MedCore reports. This allows you to get access to only the market research that you need. You can view all these included reports and segmentation here:

  • Procedure Numbers for Orthobiologics – MedPro: Using a number of databases, internal and external, we’re able to provide you with the total volume of orthopedic biomaterials procedures being performed for each of the markets mentioned in this suite of reports.
  • Orthopedic Bone Graft Substitutes Market – MedCore: Bone is a biologically active tissue and will regenerate whenever possible; however, there are instances where the damage is significant enough to warrant a scaffold to help rejoin the fissure or cavity. Bone grafting is a surgical procedure in which damaged bone is replaced with autograft tissue, allograft tissue or a bone graft substitute, which can be either synthetic or metal.
  • Hyaluronic Acid Viscosupplementation Market – MedCore: Hyaluronic acids (HAs) are naturally occurring biopolymer fluids found in the joints that help cushion them from wear. Sufferers of osteoarthritis are deficient in these fluids. First proposed by Balazs in 1993, viscosupplementation with intraarticular hyaluronic acid (HA) injections have emerged as a viable treatment modality for nonoperative care of symptomatic osteoarthritis. Viscosupplements are injectable products that come in three varieties of injection regimens: single-injection, three-injection amd five-injection HA cycles.
