Viscosupplementation Market to Leapfrog Amid Rising Cases of Osteoarthritis, to be Valued at US$ 4 Bn by 2030

Research firm Future Market Insights’ recent coverage on viscosupplementation market for the assessment period 2020-2030 concludes that a revenue share of US$ 4 Bn will be attained by 2030-end.Viscosupplementation can be performed using three primary injection types: single injection, three injections, and five injections. Applications of viscosupplementation injection include knee osteoarthritis, hip osteoarthritis, and hand osteoarthritis

Rising incidence of osteoarthritis is pinpointed as the primary determinant for the expansion of the viscosupplementation market. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, osteoarthritis affects nearly 30% of the total population in the United States alone, while 10 to 15% of the global population suffers from the disease. Eight out of ten people experience severe restrictions in mobility due to the extreme pain they experience while a quarter of them find it difficult to perform daily chores.

In the light of such alarming increase in the number of cases, the demand for non-surgical methods to treat the ailment is providing traction to viscosupplementation procedures. The market growth is also being driven by enhancements in clinical efficacies of hyaluronic acid-based therapies, as majority of the patients suffer from knee osteoarthritis. These injections provide considerable relief from the pain by reducing joint inflammation.

Market players are increasingly advancing their R&D development capabilities to develop an additional pipeline of anti-osteoarthritis drugs imbued with hyaluronic acid for expanding their foothold. However, the coronavirus outbreak has impeded short-term growth prospects as patients are delaying treatments in favor of providing more room for the eradication of the pandemic.
