Carpal Tunnel Release Systems Market Growth, Trends and Forecasts 2019-2029 – Lower Procedure Costs and Improved Medical Reimbursement Coverage for CT Surgeries: FMI

Driven by the rising prevalence of carpal tunnel syndrome, global sales of carpal tunnel release systems surpassed a market value of US$ 490 Mn in 2018. Carpal tunnel release systems market is poised for a healthy growth outlook during 2019 – 2029. Growing availability of efficient carpal tunnel release surgery equipment is another strong factor that would continue to bolster the growth of carpal tunnel release systems.

M. Surgical, Inc. developed an endoscopic carpal tunnel release system, which allows a clear view of surgical field and structure of median nerve. Leading manufacturers are collaborating with contract manufacturing organizations for the development of efficient carpal tunnel release systems. In June 2018, A.M. Surgical Inc. entered into new comprehensive product development and manufacturing agreement with Medigus Ltd for an integrated visualization device.

Although endoscopic surgeries are cost intensive, advantages such as less incision, reduced recovery time, and favorable reimbursement policies are boosting their adoption rate

Efficient, Evolved Surgery Procedures Fuelling Carpal Tunnel Release Systems Adoption 

In the last few years, there has been an increase in carpal tunnel surgeries performed on out-patient surgeries owing to lower healthcare expenditure and better medical reimbursement coverage. This demand for carpal tunnel surgeries is attributable to the availability of effective and efficient products meant for CTR procedures. Key manufacturers of carpal tunnel release systems are collaborating with contract manufacturing organizations for developing efficient products according to treatment requirements.

In terms of surgery methods, although cost-effective open surgical procedure for carpal tunnel release was previously the most preferred, efficiency and less risk associated with endoscopic procedures has led to an increased investment in this method, with key players like Stryker Corporation and Arthrex launching their range of endoscopic carpal tunnel release systems. Evolution of CTR surgeries with endoscopic methods has boosted the overall growth of carpal tunnel release systems market.

“Risks associated with carpal tunnel release surgeries could inhibit the growth of CTR systems to some extent. Nerve injury is the major risk associated with open surgery. Moreover, both, open and endoscopic methods have technical limitations. The invasive nature of both these methods and emergence of alternatives which do not require any incision would result in sluggish adoption of carpal tunnel release systems in the coming years”, Analyst, Healthcare Industry, Future Market Insights
