Growing prevalence of osteoarthritis, strong healthcare infrastructure and well established reimbursements are soaring the demand for viscosupplementation market. The Europe viscosupplementation market has been segmented by product type, end user and region.
Rising prevalence of knee osteoarthritis is fuelling demand for effective treatment therapies. Hyaluronic acid-based intra-articular injections have proved to be one of the most preferred choices of treatment for symptomatic knee osteoarthritis. Hyaluronic acid-based intra-articular injections restore normal viscoelastic properties of altered synovial fluid in the knee joint, delivering effective therapeutic effect. The ultimate goal of viscosupplementation is to increase the concentration of hyaluronate in the joints so to restore the altered synovial fluid present in the joints.
Future Market Insights (FMI) delivers key insights on the Europe viscosupplementation market in its upcoming report titled, “Viscosupplementation Market: Europe Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment, 2016-2026”. In terms of revenue, the Europe viscosupplementation market is projected to register a healthy CAGR of 5.1% during 2016-2026.
FMI’s report has segmented the market on the basis of product type, end user and region.
Based on product type, the market has been segmented into one injection viscosupplementation, three injection viscosupplementation and five injection viscosupplementation.
Single injection viscosupplementation product type segment is expected to emerge as the most popular segment over the forecast period, driven by better patient compliance as the treatment reduces the need for multiple hospital visits. The segment is expected to register the highest CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period.
Five injection viscosupplementation product type segment is expected to witness a decline in market share in terms of revenue from 29.0% in 2015 to 23.3% in 2026. This decline is attributed to more incidence of side effects and repeated patient visit requirements associated with five injection viscosupplementation. Reimbursement cutbacks and high injection costs are other factors that can curtail demand for five injection viscosupplementation.
By end-users, the market is segmented into hospitals, ambulatory surgical centres and orthopaedic clinics. Hospitals end-use segment is expected to witness significant demand for viscosupplementation, registering a CAGR of 4.3% over the forecast period. Better reimbursement options and increasing patient preference for single injection cycle for osteoarthritis treatment is expected to drive demand for one injection viscosupplementation in the orthopaedic clinics segment over the forecast period.
Europe Viscosupplementation Market Trends
Key trends in the viscosupplementation market are the use of single injection cycle for osteoarthritis treatment and introduction of new combination products in the market. For example, the product pipeline of major players in the viscosupplementation market involves combining corticosteroid injections, which help in relieving pain associated with osteoarthritis, with long-lasting effects of hyaluronic acid, which lasts for nearly six months. Further, regional competition within EU countries, especially in five injection cycle, is leading to entry of new market players. Europe is a mature market in terms of generic products and it is therefore relatively easier to obtain CE mark in Europe than it is to obtain the U.S. FDA approval.
Western Europe has been estimated to dominate the Europe viscosupplementation market in 2015, attributed to factors such as the presence of key regional players, strong distribution network and better healthcare infrastructure in the region.
