|Market Growth Rate (2023-2028)
Hip replacement, also known as hip arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which a damaged or diseased hip joint is replaced with an artificial joint, known as a prosthesis. The procedure is usually performed to relieve pain and improve mobility in individuals with severe hip joint conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis, hip fractures, or other hip-related injuries or conditions. Hip replacement surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, and the surgeon either uses traditional open surgery or minimally invasive techniques.
Hip replacement aids in restoring function and mobility, resuming daily activities, and improving patients' overall quality of life. As a result, the rising awareness about these procedures and their related benefits will fuel the growth of the hip replacement market during the forecast period. A surge in the incidence of orthopedic problems and obesity due to sedentary lifestyles, poor dietary habits, and a lack of physical activity is contributing to the high prevalence of hip joint and bone damage. Since hip replacement implants are useful in patients suffering from total or partial hip damage and injuries, the increase in the prevalence of such conditions across the globe represents the primary factor driving the market growth. Moreover, the escalating need for surgical procedures and the growing burden of fatal road accidents and sports-related injuries are other factors that are contributing to the market expansion.
Hip Replacement Market Trends/Drivers
Rise in the cases of lower extremity conditions
Lower extremity conditions, such as osteoarthritis (OA), osteoporosis, and hip ailments, significantly affect the mobility, life quality, and ability of patients to participate in regular activities. According to a report by Osteoarthritis Research Society International, about 130 million people globally will suffer from osteoarthritis by 2050. Over the years, there has been a rise in the prevalence of various types of arthritis, including rheumatoid arthritis, OA, traumatic arthritis, and osteonecrosis. Therefore, hip replacement is becoming more and more popular and is predicted to expand at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. Moreover, the surging incidences of orthopedic conditions and degenerative disorders are contributing to market growth.
Increase in research and development (R&D) activities
At present, the increasing utilization of modern technology, such as 3D printing, is providing a lucrative growth opportunity to the hip replacement industry. The 3D printing technology has enabled manufacturers to develop novel hip replacement prostheses that provide higher precision, improved surgical efficiency, shortened operation times, and reduced exposure to radiation, thereby enhancing treatment outcomes. In addition to this, the increasing research and development (R&D) activities by key players to introduce new hip replacement implants made from advanced alloys and the growing patient preferences for minimally invasive and effective alternatives to traditional surgeries are contributing to the strong uptake of advanced hip replacement procedures worldwide.
Rapid growth in the geriatric population
The growing geriatric population across the globe is fueling the growth of the hip replacement market. This can be attributed to weak bone density, increased wear and tear of joints with age, and reduced ability of older adults to regenerate bones, making them more susceptible to developing bone fractures and joint damage. There is also a high incidence of various orthopedic conditions, such as hip ailments and arthritis, among elderly people, which is augmenting the demand for hip replacement surgeries and implants. Furthermore, significant improvements in medical infrastructure and surgical facilities coupled with rising healthcare expenditure of the masses and favorable reimbursement policies are catalyzing market growth.
Hip Replacement Industry Segmentation
IMARC Group provides an analysis of the key trends in each segment of the global hip replacement market report, along with forecasts at the global and regional levels for 2023-2028. Our report has categorized the market based on procedure, material, and end user.
Breakup by Procedure:
- Total Hip Replacement
- Partial Hip Replacement
- Revision Hip Replacement
- Hip Resurfacing
Total hip replacement dominates the hip replacement market
The report has provided a detailed breakup and analysis of the hip replacement market based on the procedure. This includes total hip replacement, partial hip replacement, revision hip replacement, and hip resurfacing. According to the report, total hip replacement dominates the market.
The total hip replacement procedure involves removing and replacing the damaged hip with an artificial implant or prosthesis. As a result, the high prevalence of osteoarthritis and hip fractures owing to the aging population and other related factors, such as obesity, road accidents, and sports injuries, is propelling the expansion of this segment. Moreover, there has been a surge in the adoption of advanced robotics and navigation systems embedded with smart sensor technology to assist surgeons in total hip replacement procedures. In line with this, continual technological advancements and the launch of novel minimally invasive (MI) implants that offer enhanced patient comfort, reduced pain, faster recovery time, and better treatment outcomes are stimulating the growth of the total hip replacement segment.
Breakup by Material:
- Metal on Metal
- Metal on Polyethylene
- Ceramic on Polyethylene
- Ceramic on Metal
- Ceramic on Ceramic
Metal on polyethylene holds the largest share in the hip replacement market
A detailed breakup and analysis of the hip replacement market based on the material has also been provided in the report. This includes metal on metal, metal on polyethylene, ceramic on polyethylene, ceramic on metal, and ceramic on ceramic. According to the report, metal on polyethylene accounted for the largest market share.
Metal on polyethylene is widely preferred for hip replacement by patients and surgeons as it is the most cost-effective implant compared to other alternative materials. Also, this material provides added benefits such as fewer complications and lesser wear particles, which in turn contribute to improved patient outcomes and reduced need for revision hip replacement procedures. This represents one of the key factors supporting the expansion of the metal on polyethylene segment. Besides this, the escalating demand for affordable and efficient treatment options among patients, coupled with the widespread availability of metal on polyethylene hip replacement products, is further driving the growth of this segment.
However, ceramic on polyethylene segment is also anticipated to witness significant growth during the forecast period due to the rising awareness about the superior advantages of ceramic and plastic materials over metal, including the lowest wear rate, fewer post-surgery complications, and reduced risk of inflammatory reactions.
Breakup by End User:
- Orthopedic Clinics
- Ambulatory Surgery Centers
Hospitals represent the leading segment in the hip replacement market
A detailed breakup and analysis of the hip replacement market based on the end user has also been provided in the report. This includes hospitals, orthopedic clinics, and ambulatory surgery centers. According to the report, hospitals represent the largest segment in the market.
Hip replacement procedures are majorly performed in hospitals as they have a wide range of healthcare professionals, including orthopedic surgeons, anesthesiologists, nurses, and physical therapists who are experienced in managing hip replacement surgeries. They work together as a multidisciplinary team to provide comprehensive care before, during, and after the procedure. Besides this, there has been elevating number of hip replacement surgeries within hospitals since these medical facilities are equipped with the latest technologies and skilled healthcare professionals, which further propels the growth of this segment. Additionally, the ongoing collaborations between hospitals and key players in the hip replacement market to develop advanced surgical procedures and novel hip prostheses are further aiding the expansion of this segment. Also, the rising government funding and support to upgrade healthcare infrastructure in both developed and developing nations, with the aim to improve the affordability and accessibility of treatments, is fueling the growth of the hospital segment.
