Viscosupplementation Industry Overview

The global viscosupplementation market size was valued at USD 3.76 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.37% from 2021 to 2028. 

The increasing demand for non-surgical treatments for osteoarthritis, the prevalence of lifestyle-induced disorders, and advancements in the development of hyaluronic acid-based therapies are some of the factors expected to drive the market. Viscosupplements available in the market have shown clinical efficacy and are proven to be the most effective treatment for knee osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a chronic painful degenerative joint disease and is the leading cause of chronic disability. The onset of the condition is mostly after 30 years of age, which may progress to develop into a disability after 10 years of diagnosis.

Estimates published by the WHO suggest that the global population aged 65 years and over is projected to increase from 7% in 2000 to 16% in 2050, which, in turn, will lead to a rise in the incidence of obesity and osteoarthritis. Thus, the global increase in the target population along with a growing preference for alternative treatment options for corticosteroid for joint pain management is expected to significantly propel the product demand during the forecast period.

The reimbursement scenario is likely to become favorable globally making treatment for osteoarthritis affordable. In the U.S., products, such as Orthovisc, Supartz Hyalgan, Synvisc, and others, are approved by the FDA as Class III medical devices to treat OA knee pain and are reimbursed by Medicaid, Medicare, and other state healthcare programs. France also has a well-defined reimbursement policy for viscosupplements. In France, out of the 13 products available for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis, 12 are reimbursed up to 65% by Social Security. Thus, favorable reimbursement policies with respect to the geriatric population are expected to offer growth opportunities to the key players.
