Osteoarthritis is a common joint disease and a major cause of disability and chronic pain in the U.S and other developed countries.

According to United Nations’ World Population Ageing report, the number of people above the age of 60 years stood at 962 million in 2017, which is projected to reach 2.1 billion by 2050. Rise in geriatric population is anticipated to increase the number of individuals suffering from knee osteoarthritis, which is expected to drive the demand for medications & therapies used to manage these conditions.
Pharmaceutical companies launching new products launches to provide improved treatment options to people suffering from knee osteoarthritis. In March 2018, Bioventus, a leading global provider of orthobiologic solutions launched DUROLANE, a hyaluronic acid (HA) single-injection product deployed for joint lubrication.
