It is a medical equipment which is made use of when there is a missing part of the bone or a particular joint in order to support the damage is done to that particular bone with a view to prevent further damage. This artificial implant is manufactured with the help of stainless steel and alloys like titanium to obtain maximum strength and is quoted with the help of plastic which behaves as the cartilage for that particular part of the body in order to maintain the structure and functionality of the joint. The surgeries which would require minimal operative procedures mainly make use of these kind of artificial implants which are usually seen in the treatment of spinal injuries and other such related diseases like the stenosis of the lumbar spine.
Rapid surge in the number of orthopedic injuries have been noted recent years as a result of the various crawling diseases that have showing up relating to the bones. As a result of the huge geriatric population residing worldwide the number of bone injuries and fractures has seen a rise during the recent years. As the age advances the calcium level of the bones deteriorates which makes it porous and is termed as osteoporosis.

As a result of the sedentary lifestyle practices which were followed globally due to the changes in the work pattern of the people during the pandemic led to a number of orthopedic disorders which involved spinal disorders and other bone related disorders as a result of obesity. As per our research which was conducted by the NCBI most of the Americans who were above the age of 50 develop osteoporosis and need surgical intervention in order to deal with the disease.
The rapid increase in the cases of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis is foreseen to boost the demand for the orthopedic implants in the near future. The delays which were made regarding the surgical treatments during the period of the pandemic had hampered the demand in supply chain of the orthopedic implants market. After the removal of the restrictions during the post pandemic this same demand was seen will be on a rise. The recent technological advancements which have been made by the orthopedic implants sector have helped to boost the market tremendously. The increasing demand for joint implants which are customized as per the requirements of the patients is foreseen to boost the market growth considerably. The orthopedic implants are manufactured as per the orders which are placed by the hospital by taking into consideration the anatomical structure of each bone and joint. This helps the patient to have a unique experience and enjoy a comfortable life after the surgical procedure.
Numerous companies are striving hard to supply advanced technologies in order to manufacture customized orthopedic implants. A new technology which is known as 3D printing has also seen a great demand from the present market as a result of its high accuracy and precision regarding the structure and the anatomical setting of a particular joint or bone. Technologies which can supply a cutting-edge variety are being developed by numerous companies in order to boost the demand of orthopedic implants in the market. A constant rise in the cases of obesity and the increasing shift to sedentary pattern of lifestyle helps to boost the market during the forecast period. A huge amount of investment has been observed by the key market players for research and development in order to produce a minimally invasive procedure for the orthopedic surgeries. Constant efforts are also being taken by the key market players in order to develop cost effective orthopedic implants in order to make it affordable for the common man. These multiple factors prove to be a driving force for the growth of the market during the forecast period.
