The global osteoarthritis market is poised to capture a CAGR of approximately 6.8% over the forecast period of 2017-2023, proclaims Market Research Future (MRFR) in a minutely analysed research report. The market is growing persistently on account of growing global geriatric population as it accounts for more disability among the elderly population than any other disease. Elderly patients have been reported to experience radiographic osteoarthritis which increases as patients age. Rising populace of obesity is also considered to be the driving factor in the growth of the global osteoarthritis market since obesity has also been identified as a risk factor for osteoarthritis. Obesity reduces the skeletal-weight-to-body-mass which results in compressive forces to joints.

 

Although the treatment market for osteoarthritis is not robust, increased prevalence of the disease has resulted in increased R&D activities which are expected to bring new treatment options to the market. Moreover, raising awareness about the disease may induce demand for medications and boost market growth. Low access to healthcare and the side effects of the treatment procedures are the most significant hurdles to the growth of the global osteoarthritis market. Stem cells treatments have been demonstrated as a possible treatment for osteoarthritis which is expected to provide growth opportunities to the global osteoarthritis market size.
