Reportstack has announced a new market report on United Kingdom orthopaedic devices market outlook to 2020 – including arthroscopy, cranio maxillofacial fixation (CMF), hip reconstruction, knee reconstruction, spinal surgery, orthobiologics, trauma fixation and others.

Reportstack’s new market report provides company shares and distribution shares data for each market category, and global corporate-level profiles of the key market participants, pipeline products, and news and deals related to the orthopaedic devices market wherever available. The data in the report is derived from dynamic market forecast models. GlobalData uses epidemiology and capital equipment-based models to estimate and forecast the market size. The objective is to provide information that represents the most up-to-date data of the industry possible.

The epidemiology-based forecasting model makes use of epidemiology data gathered from research publications and primary interviews with physicians to establish the target patient population and treatment flow patterns for individual diseases and therapies. Using prevalence and incidence data and diagnosed and treated population, the epidemiology-based forecasting model arrives at the final numbers. Capital equipment-based forecasting models are done based on the installed base, replacements and new sales of a specific device/equipment in healthcare facilities such as hospitals, clinics and diagnostic centres. Data for average number of units per facility is used to arrive at the installed base of the capital equipment. Sales for a particular year are arrived at by calculating the replacement units and new units (additional and first-time purchases). Extensive interviews are conducted with key opinion leaders (KOLs), physicians and industry experts to validate the market size, company share and distribution share data and analysis.
