Market Overview

The Global "Osteotomy Plates Market" is expected to grow at a high CAGR  during the forecasting period (2022-2029).

Osteotomy plates are used to perform a surgical bone operation called an osteotomy. The procedure is employed to lengthen or shorten the bone alignments to treat bone disorders like osteoarthritis, dysplasia, bone diseases, and bone injuries. The osteotomy plates eliminate the need for intraoperative contouring and reduce soft tissue irritation. They have tapered ends which allow submuscular plate insertion. Also, the locking screws create a fixed-angle construct that provides angular stability.


Market Dynamics

The global osteotomy plates market is driven by an increase in the incidence rate of bone-related disorders, the rising geriatric population susceptible to bone diseases, growing preferences for surgical procedures, and the increasing number of road accidents.

The increasing incidence rate of bone-related disorders is expected to boost the market. Bone disorders such as osteoporosis are one of the common causes of fractures. According to the recent statistics from the International Osteoporosis Foundation, worldwide, 1 in 3 women over the age of 50 years and 1 in 5 men will experience osteoporotic fractures in their lifetime. Currently, it has been estimated that more than 200 million people have osteoporosis. Thus, the increasing incidence of bone disorders is driving the market.

The rising geriatric population is expected to boost the market. The aged population is more prone to various physical and psychological changes leading to age-associated diseases of bone such as arthritis and osteoporosis.  As per the Department of Economic and Social Affairs Population Division of United Nations, 2017, the world's population who are 60 years old will double, and those of 80 years old will triple during the next 30 years. As per WHO, the number of people age 65 or older is expected to grow to around 1.5 billion in 2050, with most of the increase in the developing countries. Thus, the increasing geriatric population will upsurge the need for osteotomy procedures, thereby boosting the market growth for osteotomy plates.

The increasing number of road accidents is expected to boost the market. According to the Annual Global Road Crash Statistics, nearly 1.25 million people die in road crashes each year, on average, 3,287 deaths a day. Also, an additional 20-50 million are injured or disabled. Road crashes cost around USD 518 billion globally, costing individual countries 1-2% of their annual GDP. Unless action is taken, road traffic injuries are predicted to become the fifth leading cause of death by 2030. Thus, the increasing number of road accidents, leading to increased bone surgeries, are driving the market.

Also, the presence of recent advances in osteotomy plates is expected to boost the market. Nitinol is a nickel-titanium alloy with shape-memory properties, facilitating a continuous compressive force to fracture surfaces. The use of Nitinol staples for osteotomy procedures also ensures a good approximation of bone fragments, dynamic compression of fracture surfaces, and reduces incidences of nonunion. These advantages make Nitinol staples a valuable implant material, and several manufacturers are adding it to their portfolio. For instance, DynaNite® Nitinol Staple for Akin Osteotomy of Arthrex is one of a kind. Thus, the presence of recent advancements in osteotomy plates is driving the market.

However, the high cost of osteotomy procedures and complications associated with the osteotomy process are expected to hamper the market. Complications related to osteotomy procedures include nerve damage, bleeding, blood clots, infections, lack of full range motion, scar formation, development of arthritis, and reinjuries to the soft tissue or joint.

Market Segmentation

By material, the global osteotomy plates market is segmented into metal osteotomy plates and polymer osteotomy plates. The metal osteotomy plates are further segmented into titanium osteotomy plates and stainless steel osteotomy plates.

The metal osteotomy plates segment is expected to boost the market. This is owing to the presence of research activities and the available products in the market. The metal osteotomy plates are used to maintain the correct realignment achieved at surgery while the bone heals. For instance, the NHS Health Research Authority has started a REMATCH study in 2017, which aimed to compare two different plates named TomoFix and ActivMotion plating systems, currently used in high tibial osteotomy (HTO) surgery (knee realignment). The findings show that the ActivMotion plate design is smaller than the Tomofix and is therefore poteTheless like to cause the discomfort related to the plate. It is expected that second operations for plate removal will be less frequent than for the Tomofix plate. Thus, the presence of research activities about the metal osteotomy plates is driving the market.

The polymer osteotomy plates segment is expected to grow at a high rate over the forecast period. This is due to the rising prevalence of osteoporosis, the increasing geriatric population, and technological advancements in polymedueeotomy plates with reduced complications. Also, the high adoption of these plates and the application of marketing strategies to reduce posters the growth of the osteotomy plates market.

Traditional opening wedge HTO performed with the metal plates has several limitations, like obscuration of detail on magnetic resonance imaging, hardware irritation, and complexity of revision surgery. Recently, an all-polyetheretherketone (PEEK) HTO implant was launched, named Arthrex PEEKPower™ HTO Plate, in 2017. It is the first multi-directional angle stable HTO plate made of carbon-reinforced PEEK and provides an outstanding biomechanical property, excellent biocompatibility, and an anatomically adapted design. The radiolucent material properties of the plate ensure a clear view of the osteotomy. Also, the PEEKPower, HTO System supports the surgeons to gain a safe and successful operation to achieve an appropriate realignment and pain reduction for the patient. Thus, the growing number of product launches to meet the increasing demand for the rising incidence of bone-related diseases is driving the market.



The global osteotomy plates market is segmented into knee surgery, hip surgery, and other applications by application. TThement, based on technique, is further segmented into dome technique, chevron osteotomy, closed wedge by application technique, open wedge technique, and others.

The knee surgery segment is expected to boost the market, owing to the increased adoption of High tibial osteotomy procedures.  The increasing prevalence of orthopedic conditions driven by various factors like age, road accidents, and inheritance is the major driving factor for high tibial osteotomy (HTO) plates worldwide. 3D printing technology is rapidly growing as an attractive option for coupling with HTO to attain superior results post-surgery with an additional benefit of high accuracy. Thus, the increasing adoption of high tibial osteotomy procedures and the technological advancements in osteotomy drive the market.

The hip surgeries segment is expected to boost the market. This is due to the increasing prevalence of bone-related diseases and osteotomy procedures in hip surgeries. Abnormal development in the hip joint in adolescents and young adults is more common. The condition may lead to hip dysplasia and hip impingement and usually requires surgery to correct the problem. For instance, according to an article posted in Birmingham Medical News in 2018, periacetabular osteotomy for hip dysplasia is expected to prevent joint replacement. Thus, the increasing adoption of osteotomy in hip surgeries is driving the market.
