DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “Global Extremities Market with Focus on Shoulder Implants: Industry Analysis & Outlook (2017-2021)” report to their offering.

The global extremity market is expected to grow in the future due to the increasing ageing population and obese population, rise in health expenditure and rising diabetic prevalence. Key trends of this market include adoption of minimally invasive surgeries & pre-operative/intra-operative planning software, rising demand of reverse shoulder implants and low reimbursement pressure. However, there are some factors which can hinder the market growth including post-surgery complications and shortage of trained surgeons.

The U.S. was a major contributor in the global extremity market, supported by a rise in sports injuries among young people and increasing cases of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. The U.S. is likely to experience upcoming growth of the extremity market with technological innovations and rising procedural volume growth in the shoulder extremity segment.
