Increasing Funding to Reduce the Burden of Spinal Injury to Drive the Market
Governments and regulatory bodies around the world are increasing funding on the development of noble spinal implants and treatment options to reduce the financial burden of spinal cord injury. According to the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Centers, the direct cost burden of high tetraplegia is more than US$ 1 Mn during the first year of injury and US$ 180,000 for each subsequent year in the U.S.
The direct and indirect cost burden of spinal cord trauma is higher as compared to most indications. Governments are sponsoring projects for the development of effective treatment modalities. The European Union funded the Bioarctic’s innovative treatment concept SC0806, a biodegradable device that stimulates nerve degeneration.
Furthermore, major players in the artificial disc replacement market are strengthening their positions and market share through mergers and acquisitions in emerging nations to gain maximum revenues sales. The artificial disc replacement market has high potential in populated and growing economies such as, India, China, Brazil, South Africa, and others.
The incidence of spinal injury in these countries is high due to the increasing number of accidents and casual injuries. North America is expected to dominate in the global artificial disc replacement market owing to increased product launches and the growing adoption of disc replacement.
