Top 6 Vendors in the Global Anterior Cervical Fixation Devices Market from 2016 to 2020: Technavio

Technavio Research
Posted on: 21 Sep 16

Technavio has announced the top six leading vendors in their recentglobal anterior cervical fixation devices marketreport. This research report also lists 43 other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Anterior cervical fixation is performed surgically to treat damaged/herniated discs that cause compression of spinal cord or nerve root. The surgery stabilizes the corresponding vertebrae, and the pain is decompressed by fixing the anterior fixation system with essential anterior plating, screws, and implants.

The global anterior cervical fixation devices market is likely to grow at a slow pace during the forecast period as the major market share dominated by the Americas has reached its maturity level due to the adoption of the cervical disc replacement devices. The factors influencing the market growth include the demand for new surgical techniques that allow spine surgeries and the introduction of new products to the market; this will increase the global demand for anterior cervical fixation devices. However, the market in countries such as the US and the UK is reaching maturity. Though this factor will negatively affect the revenue of anterior cervical fixation related surgeries in these countries to a certain extent, the sales will not be much affected owing to the rising incidence of spinal disorders among all age groups, particularly among people aged 60 years and above.

Competitive vendor landscape

According to Jhansi Mary, a lead orthopedics and medical devices analyst from Technavio, “The competition in the global anterior cervical fixation devices market is intense, with the presence of many global and local players. The market entry of new companies will further increase the competition during the forecast period. To compete in the market and increase their shares, companies adopt various strategies.”

The vendors implement an outsourcing strategy to save time in manufacturing devices, which they can use to design and develop other types of spinal implants. The implementation of this strategy increases the companies' dependence on contract manufacturers that develop products or assemble associated components and deliver them to OEMs or the companies on time.
