New Injectables For Knee OA Fuel US Joint Fluid Market

Although several factors have recently slowed growth in the US market for joint fluid replacement, it remains large and vastly underpenetrated with an estimated 15.8 million knee osteoarthritis patients who are hoping to delay the need for a total knee arthroplasty. With a growing number of products in the pipeline and increasing adoption of new single-injection products, the US joint fluid market is projected to increase from approximately $924.4 million in 2015 to more than $1.07 billion by 2019, a CAGR of 4%.

Knee OA: Growing Demand For Nonsurgical Options

The knee replacement market is posting flat growth across the board as more patients seek nonsurgical options to manage their pain. Although such treatments typically last only a few months, many patients willingly accept the durability tradeoff to avoid the cost and downtime associated with surgery.

BioPharmaceutical Medical Device

Flex Biomedical Inc.

Intra-articular injections of hyaluronic acid, which mimics the lubricating properties of natural synovial fluid and lessens friction and pain in the osteoarthritic knee joint, has become increasingly popular for treating osteoarthritis. However, of the seven formulations available in the US, none have been proven clinically superior and they have only limited long-term benefit to the patient. Flex Biomedical Inc. is working to address these concerns with a single-injection synthetic polymer alternative to HA.
