Global Viscosupplementation Market Highlights Over 2022 - 2031

The global viscosupplementation market is estimated to garner around USD 4 billion in revenue by 2031 by growing at a CAGR of nearly 8% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 –  2031. The growth of the market can be attributed to the rising prevalence of osteoarthritis among the geriatric population, and the increasing demand for minimally invasive surgeries. For instance, according to the Global Health and Aging report by the World Health Organization (WHO), an estimated number of people, aged 65 and above, is projected to increase from 524 million in 2010 to nearly 1.5 billion in 2050. Additionally, increasing government initiatives, and rising investments by the key companies in viscosupplementation are expected to further boost the market growth in the upcoming years.


Global Viscosupplementation Market Trends & Growth Analysis




The COVID-19 pandemic had led to a decrease in the demand for viscosupplementation devices as government-imposed lockdowns led to a decrease in regular check-ups related to osteoarthritis. Further, various forms of procedures were temporarily stopped, as COVID-19 patients were given the utmost priority.

However, the high cost associated with the treatment, and lack of inefficiency and safety of the products are the key factors restraining the growth of the market.

The market is segmented by product into single injection, three injections, and five injections. Among these segments, the three-injection segment is anticipated to hold the major share over the forecast period on the back of the preference by medical practitioners referring patients to adopt three injection treatments to avoid total knee replacement surgery in case of osteoarthritis.

Global Viscosupplementation Market Regional Synopsis

Regionally, the global viscosupplementation market is segmented into five major regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa region.
