The arthroscopy devices market is projected to reach US$ 9,853.88 million by 2028 from US$ 5,725.24 million in 2021; it is expected to register a CAGR of 8.1% from 2021 to 2028. 

Arthroscopy is a procedure for diagnosing and treating joint problems. A surgeon inserts a narrow tube attached to a fiber-optic video camera called an arthroscope through a small incision about the size of a buttonhole. An arthroscope is a medical device that allows doctors to see within bodily joints such as the knee, hip, spine, shoulder, and elbow to inspect, diagnose, and perform therapeutic procedures. Arthroscopy devices can examine illnesses like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, tendinitis, and bone tumors in the joints.  

The report offers insights and in-depth analysis of the arthroscopy devices market emphasizing various parameters such as market trends, technological advancements, and market dynamics. It also provides the competitive landscape analysis of leading market players worldwide. Furthermore, it includes the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the market across all the regions. The COVID-19 pandemic created both a public health crisis and an economic crisis worldwide. Before the pandemic, the global arthroscopy devices market was constantly growing as regular screening, consolations, and treatments were going on. The first wave of COVID-19 disrupted the consultations, follow-ups, and screenings of oncological cases. The uncontrolled situation was created in the healthcare industry worldwide, led the reduced number of consultations and a smaller number of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis cases diagnosed. Several companies have experienced severe losses in the last quarter of 2019; the pandemic also negatively influenced the first and second quarters of 2020. Hence, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the global market was immediate and drastic. Businesses worldwide were hampered due to disruption in the supply chain and increased demand of healthcare products and services. To reduce COVID-19 infection in hospitals and clinics, healthcare practitioners and patients adopted and preferred remote patient treatment. Under these unforeseeable circumstances, the orthopedic practice could not remain unaffected. Many surgical treatments and non-urgent consultations were canceled or postponed. Elective surgery was suspended in many institutions, and the overall volume of orthopedic cases fell dramatically in order to limit the spread of the virus and reserve and reallocate resources in healthcare personnel (nurses, anesthesiologists), medical equipment (personal protective equipment, ventilators), and beds. The "stay at home" strategy in the world resulted in a significant reduction in arthroplasty and arthroscopy surgeries, as well as a decrease in the incidence of osteoarthritis cases during the COVID-19 period.

Market Insights

Growing Prevalence of Musculoskeletal Disorders to Drive Market

Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) are the most common health conditions worldwide. According to the data published by the World Health Organization (WHO), in February 2021, approximately 1.71 billion individuals worldwide suffered from musculoskeletal problems. Lower back pain is a widespread musculoskeletal condition, affecting 568 million people worldwide. Lower back pain is the major cause of impairment in 160 countries. Musculoskeletal disorders severely impair mobility and dexterity, resulting in early retirement from work, decreased well-being, and diminished ability to socialize. The number of people disabled by musculoskeletal conditions has been growing, and this trend is expected to continue in the next decades.

Furthermore, as per the WHO, high-income countries are the most affected in terms of population (441 million), followed by countries in the WHO Western Pacific Region with 427 million, while Southeast Asia has 369 million. Musculoskeletal diseases are also the leading cause of years lived with disability (YLDs) worldwide, accounting for roughly 149 million YLDs, or 17% of all YLDs. Fractures, which affect 436 million people worldwide, osteoarthritis (343 million), other injuries (305 million), neck pains (222 million), amputations (175 million), and rheumatoid arthritis (14 million) all contribute to the overall burden of musculoskeletal diseases.

Surgical arthroscopy is a well-established therapy option for individuals with chronic joint pain and dysfunction. Compared to open joint procedures, arthroscopy is less invasive and results in better overall patient outcomes in symptom treatment, hospital stay, structural recovery, and long-term outcomes. Thus, the growing prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis is expected to drive the market during the forecast period.

Due to an increasing number of infected patients worldwide, several research institutes and leading organizations put an effort to develop efficient methods of COVID 19 treatment and ways to combat pandemic. Many companies manufacturing arthroscopy devices focused on responding emergencies by various strategies such as manufacturing PPEs to healthcare workers, distribution of pharmaceutical drugs and various other activities. For instance, in September 2020, Arthrex, a global leader in minimally invasive orthopedic technology, announced it is using its innovative production capabilities to manufacture and donate more than 6,000 protective face shields to school systems across the region.
According to World Health Organization (WHO). As the epidemic has become a global pandemic, many health authorities focused pandemic-related care and avoided human contact in reaction to growing transmission and strain on health-care resources by postponing elective surgeries, suspending outpatient clinics, and triaging employees involved in urgent care. For instance, as per the British Journal of Surgery published in May 2020 stated that orthopedic procedures would be affected most, with 6.3 million operations cancelled worldwide. Recent COVID-19 guidelines for pediatric orthopedic surgeons suggested focus on urgent care and triaging cases to postpone elective surgeries and clinic appointments, with transition to virtual-based care when appropriate.
Thus, the pandemic had a negative impact on the arthroscopy market in the region.
