An artificial cervical disc is a type of medical device used during disc replacement surgery to take the place of a natural disc in the neck. It is a new surgery that takes the place of a spinal disc that has been injured or become ill. These treatments will aid in removing disc degeneration-related discomfort while preserving mobility and functionality.

  • Artificial Cervical Disc Market Overview


People all across the world have been impacted by the pandemic, which has forced the closure of operational facilities everywhere. During the lockdown period, the healthcare sector experienced situations that were unprecedented. The closure of the manufacturing facilities had an impact on the creation of medical supplies and other equipment. Additionally, the supply chain for medical supplies was impacted, which increased the inventory of manufactured goods in warehouses. Additionally, the closing of the operating facility put a strain on the doctors and surgeons who ran their own clinics.

Consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic include the potential delay of disc replacement surgeries due to a number of factors, including the reallocation of hospital resources, such as nursing staff and ICU beds, to care for patients with the coronavirus and the cancellation of elective surgery to reduce the risk of disease spread.

By Product Type

Cervical disc: The segment of artificial cervical discs that makes up the cervical disc currently accounts for a sizeable portion of the market for artificial cervical discs, and it is anticipated that this trend will continue over the course of the forecast period due to the increasing prevalence of degenerative disc disease and the rising demand for minimally invasive procedures.

Lumbar disc: The demand for lumbar total disc replacement (LTDR) procedures will increase due to the rapidly expanding geriatric patient pool suffering from orthopaedic diseases and low back pain among the geriatric population and the rising prevalence of low back pain, which will boost the lumbar disc segment growth.

By Material

Metal-on-metal construction: During the projected period, a sizable amount of revenue is estimated to be generated by the artificial cervical disc market sector. A growing number of medical professionals, including doctors, surgeons, and clinicians, have shown a preference for metal implants. Tantalum, tantalum, zirconium alloys, cobalt-nickel-chromium-molybdenum, and chromium-cobalt-molybdenum are a few of the often-used metal implants in artificial cervical disc procedures. Because they have better corrosion resistance than metal-on-biopolymers and are significantly less expensive, metal-on-metal materials are favored.

Due to their benefits, such as higher biocompatibility, large degrees of rotation, and flexible movement of the spine and insertion, industry participants are concentrating on creating metal-on-biopolymer artificial discs. The market for artificial cervical discs will rise more quickly in the next years due to the increasing use of these cutting-edge artificial discs for the treatment of degenerative disc disorders.

By End User

Hospitals: The development of hospital infrastructure around the world is a major market driver for prosthetic cervical discs. Because of the superior care and knowledgeable medical staff, hospitals draw a large number of patients.

Ambulatory Surgical Clinics: As a result of the need for treatment right away, ambulatory surgical centers are in greater demand. The patient receives immediate care at these facilities, and they are then released the next day. Due to the fact that they do not require overnight or extended stays, such operations are efficient and cost-effective.


Some of the major key players are as follows: Alphatec Spine, Braun Melsungen AG, AxioMed, Centinel Spine, LLC, Aditus Medical, Globus Medical Inc, Johnson & Johnson, Orthofix Company, Medtronic PLC, Nuvasive Inc., Simplify Medical, Zimmer Biomet Holdings Inc.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of the good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to complete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports, we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach at a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brainstorming sessions to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research is as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through the readily available information. In this process we use various paid and unpaid databases which our team has access to and gather data through the same. This includes examining of listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling etc. Apart from this our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various university as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to the accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply side of the industry to make sure we land at an accurate judgement and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses and observation of on filed participants. The below mentioned chart should give a better understanding of the part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of primary research the data collected via secondary research and the part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews from individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence centre our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but not limited to getting rid of the any typos, duplication of numbers or missing of any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploaded on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
