Implant Industry in India

The Indian orthopaedics market has been on a rise owing to the rising number of arthritis patients and increasing awareness of joint replacements. Some of the key trends prevalent in the Indian orthopaedic implants market include the adoption of Customised Knee Replacement Surgery using 3D Printing, Robotic-Assisted Knee Arthroplasty Systems and Price Cap on Knee Implants in India.


The estimated current size of the Indian orthopaedic devices market is around USD 375 M (Rs. 2,400 crores) and it is expected to increase at around 20% every year for the next decade to reach USD 2.5 Bn (Rs. 16,000 crores) by 2030.

Emerging trends, which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the orthopaedic device industry, including the increasing demand for smart implants, the widening use of nanotechnologies, and the adoption of robotic surgery to increase mechanical performance and accuracy.


The Indian ortho market is at a pivotal point today. There is potential for accelerated and vast growth in the market, but it remains to be seen whether multinationals continue to capture significant share or if more domestic companies can transform themselves sufficiently to compete effectively. Changes in the market composition, policy and regulatory environments will alter the landscape in the near future. The domestic industry also needs to improve their R&D capability and collaborate with academic institutions to introduce innovative products that can expand the market.


The Government has noticed a lack of regulation in this market and has started taking steps to strengthen the regulatory and policy framework. With initiatives like “ Make in India”, there is a focus on supporting and increasing the quality of the local manufacturers. India will continue to be a very attractive market for device manufacturers; and with a supportive environment, India can also emerge as an export hub for medical devices in the Rest of the World markets.
