Introduction to Thoracolumbar Stabilization Devices

Thoracolumbar is the joint between thoracic spine and the lumbar spine. It consists of one part of vertebral column which is also known as the backbone. It helps in providing support to the spine when it is flexed by developing fascial tension. In case of any injury in the thoracic and lumbar vertebrae thoracolumbar stabilization device is used. The stabilization device is used to strengthen the muscles, reduce or eliminate the instability around the junction and prevent back pain.

Market Size and Forecast

The thoracolumbar stabilization devices market is anticipated to record a significant CAGR over the forecast period, i.e., 2020-2028 on the back of increasing number of cases with spinal and back injuries. According to National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Centre (NSCISC), USA records nearly 17,700 new spinal cord injury cases every year. Spinal injuries and back pains are among the most prevalent health issue conditions which is anticipated to be one of the major factors that is contributing to the growth of global thoracolumbar stabilization devices market in the forecast period.

The device type segment is further sub-segmented into anterior stabilization, posterior stabilization and retractors. Posterior stabilization devices segment is anticipated to grow at the highest rate in terms of revenue in the thoracolumbar stabilization devices market on account of usage of posterior stabilization in most of the primary implant cases. Moreover, in the material segment, titanium stabilization devices segment holds a strong presence in the market owing to the popularity it gained from its light weight and dynamic nature. Such factors are anticipated to boost the growth of posterior stabilization segment in the global thoracolumbar stabilization devices market. 


Growth Drivers

Increasing Cases of Spinal Injuries

According to National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC), the total number of people living in the USA with spinal cord injury rose to approximately 288,000 in 2018 from 285,000 in 2017.

Spinal injury is a major concern amongst individuals of varied age groups worldwide. It is caused due to bad posture habits or at times due to internal injury. People having spinal injury can obtain thoracolumbar stabilization process to stabilize their spinal injury. The increasing incidences of spinal cord injury around the world is further anticipated to drive the growth of the global thoracolumbar stabilization devices market.

Improving Healthcare Facilities 

As per World Bank data, per capita spending on healthcare by governments across the globe in 2016 was 940.61$. A lot more focus is now given on healthcare by the governments of countries all over the world owing to the increasing concern for health diseases that is growing parallel worldwide. Medical facilities are also working constantly on improving the standard and quality of stabilization devices. These combined efforts by government and medical fraternity will aid the growth of the thoracolumbar stabilization device market. 

Importance of Vertebral Health in Improving Quality of Life 

Per capita disposable income across the globe is on a rise leading to a change in the standard of living. Also people are getting conscious about vertebral health. It is considered as an important factor in improving the quality of life. This factor has given a rise in the demand for stabilizing devices.


High Initial Investment of Devices to Hamper Market Growth

The initial cost linked with these devices is very high which makes it difficult for commoners to afford it. Penetrating the markets of developing countries where per capita income is low, imposes a stiff challenge in the growth of thoracolumbar stabilization device market.

Lack of Required Equipment and Device Manufacturers to Hamper the Market Growth

Despite the improving healthcare infrastructure, there is a shortage of necessary equipment in order to meet the growing global demand. Not only this, there is a lack of skilled labour in the research and development area as well which may lead to some resistance in the growth of thoracolumbar stabilization devices market in the future.
