Global Cervical Retractors Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 - 2035

Cervical Retractors Market size is predicted to cross USD 218 Billion by the end of 2035, witnessing a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of cervical retractors was over USD 120 Billion.

There is increasing use of spinal devices such as cervical retractors for treating cervical disc herniation. An estimated 5 to 20 cervical disc herniation per 1000 adults occur each year, which contributes to neck pain in adults. The cervical retractor is used to separate the vertebrae and expose the herniated disc while allowing a surgeon to access the herniated disc and surgically remove it.

Manufacturers' wide availability of retractor sets has created a lucrative opportunity for the cervical retractors market. MEDFIX VISION cervical retractor set by Medfix International, LLC features locking technology that ensures blades are snugly connected to retractor bodies, and hinged arms that conform to patient anatomy during surgical procedures.

Global Cervical Retractors Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Prevalence of Age-Related Cervical Disorders - As people age, their muscles, ligaments, and discs in the neck become weaker and less flexible, leading to degenerative changes in the cervical spine. This results in an increased risk of cervical spondylosis. In 2021, 28% of all diagnosed spinal degenerative diseases were age-related. Age-related cervical disorders can be relieved and improved through the use of cervical retractors. The retractors are designed to slowly and gently stretch the neck muscles, allowing them to relax and loosen up, reducing pain and restoring the normal range of motion.
  • Rise in Instrumented Spinal Procedures will boost the cervical retractors market demand - There are over 1.60 million spinal surgeries performed every year. The cervical retractor system is designed to help surgeons carry out precise and safe spinal procedures. It provides a secure and stable platform for surgeons to perform surgery and facilitates implant placement accurately. It also allows for a minimally invasive approach to the cervical spine, which reduces complications risk.
  • Rising Availability of Medical Devices Worldwide - In recent years, increased access to medical products has resulted in a surge in demand for cervical retractors in surgical settings. There are now more than 7000 generic medical devices available on the world market, with more than 2 million different varieties.


  • Concern of tissue damage by self-retaining retractors - The self-retaining retractors have sharp edges which can lacerate or damage surrounding tissue when placed with too much tension, and this can lead to an infection or wound dehiscence. This can cause a delay in healing and lead to an increased risk of complications.
  • Lack of skilled labor and the presence of counterfeit products
  • Emergence of substitute products

Cervical Retractor Segmentation

Type (Transverse Retractors, Longitudinal Retractors)

By 2035, transverse retractor segment is poised to account for 53% of the market share. The transverse retractor system is designed to provide a secure engagement with minimal tissue trauma and improved visibility, while its low-profile design allows for easy access to the surgical site.

This allows surgeons to perform procedures with greater precision while reducing the risk of tissue damage. A Phantom CS Transverse Retractor by TeDan Surgical Innovations has been designed with Sure-Lock and Lever Lock technologies.

End-User (Hospitals, Clinics, Ambulatory Surgery Centers)

A significant share of 49% is predicted to be owned by the hospitals segment in the cervical retractors market by 2035. Hospitals are performing an increasing number of minimally invasive procedures to treat conditions such as hernias, spine ailments, and tumor removals. These procedures require the use of cervical retractors. In addition, hospitals are investing in advanced medical equipment and modernizing their infrastructure to improve patient outcomes.

Despite Inflation & Fearing Recession, Businesses Across the Globe Expected to Do Better in 2023:

In 2023, market players might incur losses due to huge gap in currency translation followed by contracting revenues, shrinking profit margins & cost pressure on logistics and supply chain.
Controlling Inflation has become the first priority for global economies from last quarter of 2022 and to be followed in 2023. With skewed economic situations, rise in interest rate by governments to control spending and inflation, spiked oil and gas prices, high inflation, geo-political issues including U.S. & China trade war, Russia-Ukraine conflict to intensify the global economic issues.
The interest rates in the U.S. may be less sensitive in 2023 as compared to 2022; sigh of relief for businesses. Positive business sentiments, healthy business balance sheets, growth in construction spending (private construction value in 2022 stood at $1,429.2 billion, 11.7 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $1,279.5 billion spent in 2021, Residential construction in 2022 was $899.1 billion, up by 13.3 percent (±2.1 percent) from $793.7 billion in 2021, non-residential construction touched $530.1 billion, 9.1 percent (±1.0 percent) above the $485.8 billion in 2021.) showcases minimal impact of recession in the country.
Similarly, spiked spending in the European and major Asia economics including, India, China & Japan to showcase less impact on the global demand.
