A power tool is a key instrument in the armamentarium of the operating room for many orthopedic surgeries. The adoption rates for orthopedic power tools vary in different regions, mainly due to price sensitivity. Globally, and driven by the orthopedic industry's continued innovation in cordless battery-powered systems as well as a better understanding of corded systems' downsides, the usage of pneumatic-powered tools has been declining in the past decade as surgeons adopt premium-priced electric and, more significantly, battery-powered systems. In contrast, in developing countries, electric- and pneumatic-powered tools currently represent highly valued equipment for orthopedic surgeons; moreover, this equipment should continue to remain important, especially in light of the developing countries' healthcare systems that cannot bear the substantial costs associated with capital equipment upgrades. Yet, a slow shift to battery-powered systems will still occur in these emerging economies, as players introduce the new-generation systems into these countries in the coming years and invest heavily in marketing and promotion.
The US is the largest market for orthopedic power tools in terms of both sales units and market revenue. There are multiple drivers that contribute to the current state of the US power tools market. The primary factor for growth in the sales units has been the rise in orthopedic and spinal procedures in the past few years. However, the lingering economic concerns in the US have significantly impacted hospital budgets and have resulted in delayed capital equipment purchases and an increased usage of reprocessed consumables, diminishing the growth in sales units to some extent.
