Prosthetic disc nucleus is hydrogel-based spinal implant used as an adjunct treatment for patients with degenerative disc disorder and herniation, where surgical intervention is the only option. Prosthetic disc nucleus offers an alternative, cost-effective, and minimally invasive procedure to total disc replacement. In 1996, C.D. Ray introduced the first PDN device, which was the first nucleus replacement device designed to replace the functions of the disc that were lost through degeneration. The global prosthetic disc nucleus market is driven by rise in prevalence of spine disorders across globe, increase in global geriatric population, and high demand for minimally invasive surgeries across the globe.

High Prevalence and Rising Incidence of Spine Disorders to Drive Global Market

The increase in incidence of spinal disorders, such as degenerative disc diseases and spinal stenosis, has fueled the usage of spine implants. An estimated 266 million people are affected with lumbar degenerative spine disorder and low back pain each year. According to Hebrew SeniorLife Institute for Aging Research, around one-third of people aged between 40 and 59 are affected with moderate to severe degenerative disc disorder and around half of the population is affected with moderate to severe osteoarthritis. The prevalence of disc height narrowing and joint osteoarthritis increased by 2 to 4 times in people aged between 60 and 69 years and 70 and 89 years, respectively. Disorders of the spine are an important health and social issue, as these are major contributors to disability globally. Respondents often report a spine disorder as lower back pain, irrespective of the actual diagnosis or cause of the condition. Thus, high prevalence and rise in incidence rate of spine disorder across the globe is a prominent factor projected to boost the prosthetic disc nucleus market during the forecast period.
