Research and Markets released its report, "US Procedure Numbers for Minimally Invasive Spinal Implants 2017."

Here are five observations:


1. The report notes a growing number of manufacturers are turning attention to spine as an attractive business opportunity for minimally invasive implants, as opposed to traditional orthopedics.


2. The physiological and surgical advantages of MIS procedures compared to open procedures will drive all segments of the U.S. MIS spine implant market.


3. Aging baby boomers will drive the market, as this age group undergoes the majority of MIS procedures.


4. The MIS learning curve will serve as a market barrier, as it is difficult to master the percutaneous techniques.


5. The MIS interbody market will continue trending toward oblique lateral interbody fusion and lateral lumbar interbody fusion devices and away from MI posterior lumbar interbody fusion and MI transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion devices.
