Baptiste Martin, CEO de FX Shoulder USA décrypte le futur de l’arthroplastie de l’épaule pour le magazine Orthopedic Design & Technology
Michael Barbella: What trends/factors are currently impacting the global extremities market?
Baptiste Martin: The global shoulder arthroplasty market is growing quickly with a CAGR [compound annual growth rate] estimated at 7.6 percent from 2018 to 2024 reaching $1.9 billion in 2024. The U.S. market is worth over 40 percent of the entire market. By 2021, the shoulder arthroplasty market in the U.S. will be worth $928 million, according to Business Wire. The growth in the shoulder market is primarily based on the age of the population that requires a replacement of their gleno-humeral joint for arthritis or fractures. In addition, for example, the global rate for proximal humerus fractures, a common occurrence from accidents and falls as people age, has been increasing by 15 percent a year, according to marketresearch.com.
