According to a new series of reports on the Mexico market for minimally invasive spinal (MIS) implants by iData Research, the country imports minimally invasive devices, mostly from American and European manufacturers. However, the U.S. dollar has seen strong growth recently. As a result, it has been less profitable for companies to import MIS devices and this has stunted market growth.

Other market segments are also experiencing significant changes. The MIS interbody market is seeing a shift toward oblique lumbar interbody fusion (OLIF) and lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) devices and away from minimally invasive posterior lumbar interbody fusion (MIPLIF) and minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MITLIF) devices. The oblique and lateral lumbar approaches are expected to see more growth than their posterior and transforaminal lumbar counterparts, although positive growth is expected across all segments.

“While smaller companies in the space are generally focusing on the private healthcare sector in Mexico, larger companies such as Zimmer Biomet have been able to establish relationships with the public sector as well,” explains Jeffrey Wong, Strategic Analyst Manager at iData Research. “This gives them brand recognition and means that surgeons are familiar with the company when it comes to newer technologies.”

Zimmer Biomet is the leading competitor in the Mexican minimally invasive spine market due to their leading share in the MIS pedicle screw and spinous process fixation segments. Zimmer Biomet’s Aspen™ has been very successful and has gained considerable share since its introduction. The company has also benefitted from strong growth in Mexico due to effective use of third-party vendors. However, since the recent introduction of new products in the market, Zimmer Biomet’s share of the total market has stabilized. Zimmer Biomet’s market share will continue to be contested as more innovative competitor products enter the market.

DePuy Synthes is the second-largest overall market leader in the Mexican MIS spine market. The company holds the leading position in the MIS interbody segment and the relatively small facet fixation segment. Via its parent company, Johnson & Johnson, DePuy Synthes has also managed to establish stronger relationships with the public sector than some of its competitors.

Additional competitors in the Mexican minimally invasive spinal market include Medtronic, NuVasive, Globus Medical, Stryker and Ulrich Medical among others. The number companies present in the MIS segments is expected to grow as prices stabilize and the technology becomes more familiar.
