MediPoint: Shoulder Replacement – APAC Analysis and Market Forecasts

The shoulder, or glenohumeral, joint is the most mobile joint in the body and is composed of the humerus and scapula. Shoulder motion and stability is achieved by the coordinated contraction of the deltoid and rotator cuff muscles. The shoulder is vulnerable to stress, injury, and arthritis that can cause the cartilage on the shoulder bones to wear away, resulting in pain, loss of motion, and crepitation. The rising prevalence of joint diseases such as arthritis, coupled with a global aging population seeking to maintain an active lifestyle, is driving the expansion of the shoulder replacement market. Expanded indications, increased physician training, and patient awareness will drive further growth in the market. The relative instability of the shoulder articulation as well as its use in most of the popular sports worldwide will contribute to an increase in the volume of replacement procedures in the forecast years.
