Latin America Bone Graft and Substitutes Market

Latin America Bone Graft and Substitutes Market is Expected to be Flourished by Rising Number of Road Accidents and Trauma Cases

The bone graft and substitutes are medical procedures or products used to replace missing bone or support weakened or damaged bone. Bone grafts are often required to repair bone fractures that are difficult to heal, support fusions of bones, or fill large defects resulting from injuries, infections, or defects present from birth. Bone graft substitutes include allograft bone (from another person), synthetic bone graft extenders/substitutes, and bone morphogenetic proteins (BMP). Uses of bone grafts and substitutes include foot and ankle fusions, joint reconstruction and replacement, spinal and cranial defects. \

The Latin America bone graft and substitutes market is estimated to be valued at US$ 559.36 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics:
Rising incidence of road accidents and trauma cases requiring bone grafting procedures is a key driver estimated to propel growth of the Latin America bone graft and substitutes market over the forecast period. According to the World Health Organization, road traffic injuries are the eighth leading cause of death globally. Similarly, statistics from Pan American Health Organization reveal that in Latin America and Caribbean region, around 31,000 people die each year due to road traffic crashes. Bone injuries are common in such accidents requiring procedures such as spinal fusion, joint reconstruction, and even replacement, boosting demand for bone grafts and substitutes. Additionally, growing geriatric population vulnerable to bone conditions such as osteoporosis also contributes to market growth. For instance, as per WHO, the proportion of population over 60 years in Latin America will double from 11% in 2000 to 22% by 2050. Older individuals have increased risk of bone fractures that may require bone grafting surgeries.

Segment Analysis
Latin America Bone Graft and Substitutes Market can be segmented into Allografts, Bone Graft Substitutes, and Cell-based Matrices. Among these, Allografts dominated the market in 2019.
