Publisher's MediPoint: Spinal Non-fusion - Global Analysis and Market Forecast report provides analysis of the spinal non-fusion treatment space across the 10 major markets of the US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Japan, Brazil, China and India, including annualized market data from 2014 and forecast until 2021. 

Cervical Total Disc Replacement (C-TDR) is the fastest-growing segment in the spinal care market, as it has shifted from being considered an investigational surgery to a viable alternative to Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF). In general, using C-TDR in the right patients has been shown to reduce the rate of reoperations, deliver higher rates of clinical success, and reduce costs as compared to ACDF. Other growth drivers for C-TDR include improving reimbursement for the procedures in most major markets and an aging patient population that is more well-informed and demanding of motion preservation than ever before. 

Over the past decade, the number of C-TDR devices has proliferated and such products are now available in various shapes, materials, and biomechanical concepts. 

 Key questions answered in this report:

 -Future growth in the spinal non-fusion market lies in the C-TDR segment. How will the C-TDR segment drive the market revenue growth in the upcoming years? What are the current utilization patterns of one-level and double-level C-TDR procedures in different geographies?

-Most of the spine surgeons Publisher interviewed indicated that the actual clinical effectiveness of lumbar TDR (L-TDR) is still unclear. Has this impacted the procedure volume growth of L-TDR procedures? How will this market evolve in the next five years?

-Moving forward, while IPD devices are expected to continue to generate traction in the spine community, the growth in the procedure number of IPD surgeries is likely to slow down. What are the current adoption trends of IPD devices?

-Market leading companies, such as DePuy Synthes and Medtronic, entered the non-fusion market initially through acquisitions. Since then, a league of small- to medium-sized companies have internally developed and marketed their artificial discs or other non-fusion technologies.. Who are the major players in the spinal non-fusion market in different regions?
