Aging Population Driving Demand for Hip Replacement
In the world’s population, the percentage of geriatrics is rising. The United Nations has estimated that the number of people aged over 60 years would swell up to 2.1 billion by 2050, more than doubling from 962 million as of 2017. With this apparent increase in geriatric population, the healthcare industry is flourishing, particularly in the developed countries, and one the segment that is gaining strong traction is hip replacement.
Geriatrics are highly prone to hip abnormalities and nearly a million hip surgeries are performed each year, as per the National Institute of Health (NIH). According to this business intelligence publication, the demand in the global hip replacement market will multiply at a notable CAGR of 4.2% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2024. Revenue-wise, the analyst of the report has estimated that opportunities in the hip replacement market, across the world, will translate into US$9,128.5 mn by the end of 2024, significantly more than the market’s evaluated worth of US$6,830.5 mn in 2017.
Apart from escalating geriatric population, the hip replacement market is also feeding off the recent technological advancements, which not only have improved the quality of artificial hip but also made the surgeries more affordable for larger masses.
The global hip replacement market also stands to gain from factors such as the prevalence of arthritis and obesity, government initiatives to provide care to ageing citizens, and favorable trade regulations. On the other hand, stringent FDA regulations for all metal hip implant products, substantial cost of surgeries, and lack of awareness in the rural areas of various emerging economies are a few restraints challenging the prosperity of the market for hip reconstruction devices.
