Orthobiology is a branch of science that develops bone and tissue replacement materials for fasthealing and quick recovery of injured muscles, broken bones, ligaments and tendons. Orthobiologics is considered as a highly lucrative market owing to significant growth opportunities. One of the major driver for the growth of this industry is certain limitations that are associated with autografts and allografts. Although, autografts are considered as gold standard for orthopedic procedures but the usage of autograft involves donor site morbidity and an additional surgery. While, the major concerns associated with allografts is risk of disease transmission along with the decline in theiravailability. Therefore, in order to overcome these drawbacks of the autografts and allografts, bone graft substitutes are being preferred for use in orthopaedic surgery.

According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS), approximately 465,000 spinal surgeries were performed in the U.S in 2011. Of all the spinal fusion surgeries performed, 46% were for lumbar fusion, 42% were for cervical fusion and the remaining 13% were for thoracic or multi-level fusion procedures. This rise in number of spinal fusion surgeries has created the demand for bone graft substitutes and has consequently boosted the overall growth of this industry.
In addition, rise in the incidence of arthritis, increase in geriatric population and increase in obesity rate has triggered the growth of this market. Technological advancements, growing demand for minimally invasive procedures and rising patient awareness are the other factors that has considerably augmented the growth of this market. The global orthobiologics market was valued at USD 3,754.6 million in 2012 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.9%from 2013 to 2019 to reach at an estimated value of USD 5,519.9 million in 2019.
At present, viscosupplementation accounts for the largest share of the orthobiologics market. The growth in this market is attributed to growing popularity of knee treatments and its ability to act as an effective pain killer as compared to NSAIDS and others. This market is followed by bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) which is characterized by its ability to provide faster recovery, lesser pain and ability to stimulate patients own cells for regeneration. However, the market is expected to show a negative growth rateduring the forecast period due to decline in the sales of “INFUSE” a Medtronic product.
Severe side effects associated with INFUSE due to its heavy off label usage led to recall of this product by the U.S FDA. Synthetic bone substitutes and stem cell based products are expected to witness a significant growth during the forecast period. The growth of these segments is witnessed due to reduced cost, quick recovery and eliminated risk of disease transmission.
Geographically, North America and Europe dominates the orthobiologics market. The dominance in these region is witnessed due to rise in incidence of arthritis and higher obesity rates that has surged the demand for minimally invasive procedures such as bone grafting and growth factor treatment. These treatments offer enhanced well-being and durability, with minimal side effects while eliminating the need for repeated hospital visits. However, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to show highest growth rate during the forecast period.
The demand for orthobiologics in this region is witnessed due to increase in number of orthopedic disease due to change in lifestyle, change in diet which all lead to increasing obesity rate and consequently leads to arthritis and other bone disorders. Moreover, rise in geriatric population and increase in sports related injuries are other factors likely to drive the growth of orthobiologics in this region.
The major players engaged in the orthobiologics market include Medtronic, Inc., DePuySynthes, Wright Medical Technology, Inc., Stryker Corporation, Orthofix, Inc., NuVasive, Inc., and other significant players.
