Report : Middle East & Africa Arthroscopy Devices Market Forecast to 2028 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis – by Product (Arthroscopic Implants, Arthroscopes, Fluid Management Systems, Radiofrequency Systems, Visualization Systems, Powered Shavers Systems, and Other Arthroscopy Instruments) and Application (Knee Arthroscopy, Hip Arthroscopy, Spine Arthroscopy, Foot and Ankle Arthroscopy, Shoulder and Elbow Arthroscopy, and Others)

At 7.4% CAGR, the MEA Arthroscopy Devices Market is speculated to be worth US$ 626.71 million by 2028, says Business Market Insights         

According to Business Market Insights’ research, the MEA arthroscopy devices market was valued at US$ 379.01 million in 2021 and is expected to reach US$ 626.71 million by 2028, registering an annual growth rate of 7.4% from 2021 to 2028. Rise in number of product launches and approvals and increasing prevalence of obesity are the critical factors attributed to the market expansion.                    

Obesity is currently an epidemic known as "globesity," affecting millions across the region. Obesity has a considerable effect on the musculoskeletal system, resulting in the degeneration of bones, cartilage, and ligaments. According to the study published by the WHO, in 2020, the frequency of obesity among the regional population has tripled since 1975. Furthermore, according to the same study, 38 million children below 5 years of age were overweight in 2019. This massive prevalence of obesity is likely to accelerate due to unhealthy habits such as consumption of junk food, sedentary lifestyle, genetic conditions, and deprivation of mental health.  Obesity is a major risk factor for OA development and progression. Obesity is associated with OA, a chronic, chronic joint condition caused by increased force across the joint and other pro-inflammatory factors such as inflammation throughout the body. Body mass index (BMI) values enhance joint pain symptoms and severity. Furthermore, for every 11 pounds gained, the risk of having OA increases by 36%. Compared to leaner individuals, women with obesity have roughly four times the risk of knee OA, while men with obesity have five times the risk.  Obesity is linked to an increased chance of developing rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Given the recent rapid rise in the prevalence of obesity, this risk factor appears to have a major impact on the incidence of RA. It may account for a significant percentage of the recent increase in RA among women. Being overweight can exacerbate the symptoms of RA, lead to serious other health issues, and make some arthritis medications less effective. Hence, the increased prevalence of obesity is anticipated to drive the market during the forecast period.        

On the contrary, high cost of arthroscopy devices hurdles the growth of MEA arthroscopy devices market.
