This dynamic new report from Medtech Insight includes analyses of products, current/forecast markets, competitors, and opportunities in the European market for nonfusion spinal technologies for the treatment of degenerative disc disease. Product areas covered by the scope of this report include artificial discs, dynamic stabilization systems (facet replacements, interspinous process spacers, and pedicle screws), kyphoplasty and vertebroplasty systems, nucleus replacements, and percutaneous intradiscal electrotherapy and plasma disc decompression devices.
During the forecast period covered by this report, the combined European market for spinal motion-preserving devices is projected to increase at a compound annual rate of 5.4%, reaching an estimated $524.8 million in the year 2017. The segment that is projected to experience the greatest growth is represented by sales of artificial discs, followed by dynamic stabilization systems and vertebral compression fracture repair products, with disc altering systems experiencing modest growth over the next half-decade. The European market for nucleus replacement devices for degenerative disc disease has declined in recent years.
