Osteoarthritis—the most common type of arthritis—is characterized by loss of function and degeneration of cartilage and tissues that cover the bones in a joint. Rising prevalence of osteoarthritis around the globe is fueling the demand for osteoarthritis therapeutic products, such as viscosupplementation. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 30 million people in the U.S. suffered from osteoarthritis and around 10% of people over 55 years suffered from knee pain in 2015.

According to National Center for Biotechnology Information, 10% of men and 13% women of aged 60 years and older are suffering from osteoarthritis in the U.S. The prevalence of osteoarthritis is high in females as compared to men, owing to menopause and hormonal imbalance. Other factors that may cause osteoarthritis are knee injury, overweight, obesity, muscle weakness, the repetitive unnatural strain on joints, loss of bone density, and joint laxity, among others. Therefore, the growing prevalence of osteoarthritis is projected to fuel the market growth of the overall viscosupplementation market.
