Artificial Disc Market Size (2020 to 2025)

The global artificial disc market size was estimated at USD 2.20 billion in 2019. This value is expected to reach USD 3.94 billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of about 19% between 2020 and 2025.

The disc refers to a flexible cushioning structure made of cartilage-like tissue located between the individual bones of the spine. An artificial disc, commonly called a spinal replacement device or disc prosthesis, is a device implanted in the spine to emulate the functions of a healthy disc. These compressible discs, which are made primarily of metal or biopolymer, or a combination of both, help maintain movement and flexibility. The artificial disc is a rapidly growing segment in the spinal implant market.

Artificial disc replacement is an emerging procedure that replaces the function of a damaged or diseased spinal disc. It is an alternative to spinal fusion for the surgical treatment of severe disc problems. A herniated disc, bone spurs, spondylosis, or radiculopathy should relieve pinched nerves, causing pain that has not been relieved by conservative measures. The spines are replaced by artificial devices in the lumbar (lower) or cervical (upper) spine. During the process, the damaged disc is removed, and the area surrounding the bone is cleaned of any debris. The bone is also deposited to make room for the artificial disc, and the disk is inserted into space. Once secured and the soft tissues of the neck in place, the incision is closed. The procedure is used to treat chronic low back pain and neck pain due to degenerative disc disease.


The artificial disc is used to treat chronic pain, severe back pain, and neck pain. An artificial disc is used to treat pain that has not been sufficiently reduced by non-surgical care such as injections, physical therapy, medications, etc. Replacing the artificial disc is more advantageous because it allows a faster return to activities than traditional surgical fusion. Based on the global burden of the disease, low back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide, affecting approximately 540 million people at any time. Additionally, low back pain was responsible for about 60.1 million disability-adjusted life years in 2015, an increase of 54% since 1990, with the most substantial increase observed in low- and low-income countries. It is anticipated to driving the demand in the global artificial disc market.

The low reoperation rate associated with artificial discs, coupled with better clinical trial results than fusion techniques, is expected to stimulate growth in the industry. Product innovation and technological innovation, combined with an increase in research activity for artificial discs on several levels, is estimated to boost the market growth.


The high cost of the device, strict regulatory guidelines, and the lack of uniform reimbursement policies for disc replacements are supposed to slow the growth of the artificial disc market.

This research report on the global artificial disc market has been segmented and sub-segmented into the following categories:

Artificial Disc Market – By Type:

  • Lumbar Artificial Disc
  • Cervical Artificial Disc

Depending on the type, the world market for artificial discs is segmented into an artificial lumbar disc and artificial cervical disc. The cervical artificial disc segment is expected to have a significant share of the global market. Cervical disc replacement is a surgical procedure in which a damaged or degenerated disc is removed and replaced with an artificial disc. These discs are the cushions between the bones (vertebrae) of the neck (cervical spine). According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the prevalence of low back pain for life is estimated at 60% -70% in industrialized countries (the one-year prevalence rate is 15% -45%, in adults, the incidence rate of low back pain is 5% annually) and the prevalence rate in children and adolescents is lower than that of adults, but it increases.

Artificial Disc Market – By Material:

  • Metal-On-Biopolymer
  • Metal-On-Metal

As for materials, the world industry is divided into the metal on biopolymer and metal on metal. Both the materials are supposed to contribute similarly to the world market in the coming years.

Artificial Disc Market – By Region:

  • North America
  • Europe
  • Asia Pacific
  • Latin America
  • The Middle East and Africa

Geographically, North America is the largest market for artificial discs, followed by Europe and Asia-Pacific. Asia-Pacific is expected to experience the fastest growth due to rapidly developing medical infrastructure, increased spending on preventive care, and increased medical tourism in developing countries like China, Japan, and India in this region. The growth of artificial discs is significantly high in the United States. Compared to other countries due to technology for rapid progression of the disease, USA and Mexico, higher prevalence, better health care infrastructure, good economic growth, payments'high insurance, development and spending of the private health sector, and increased awareness among people due to their training. The United States is foreseen to dominate the artificial disc market until 2025. Germany represented more than 20% of the European market in 2018 and should record a notable growth rate.


The artificial disc market is moderately competitive and consists of several major players. In terms of market share, few of the leading players currently dominate the market. Some of the companies that currently dominate the market are Globus Medical, Zimmer Biomet, B. Braun Melsungen, Centinel Spine, LLC, Medtronic Plc, AxioMed LLC, NuVasive Inc, Orthofix Medical Inc, K2M, Inc, RTI Surgical Holdings, Inc and Synergy Disc Replacement Inc.


  • In September 2016, Globus Medical Inc. acquired the international operations and distribution channels of Alphatec Holdings, a leading company in the field of medical devices. The acquisition was aimed at expanding the geographic scope and customer base of the business.
  • In February 2016, K2M Inc. received CE marking approval for its new generation Rin Cervical Disc System to treat degenerative disc disease. This approval has helped the company strengthen its existing product portfolio and generate more revenue.
