The European Orthopedic Hip and Knee Implant Markets, 2003-2008

The European orthopedic implants and trauma products market consists of hip, knee, shoulder, and small joint reconstruction and replacements; fracture fixation and bone growth stimulation; bone graft substitutes and growth factors; and bone cements segments. "European Markets for Orthopedic Implants and Trauma Products", a report published in October 2004 by Windhover/Medtech Insight, surveys and forecasts these markets in France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK. Within these countries there is considerable potential for new and innovative technologies such as bone graft substitutes and the use of resorbable implants in trauma. However, medical-based evidence must show added value and improvement in a patient's quality of life before such innovations will be broadly accepted. Meeting health care regulatory authorities' compliance criteria while not burdening health care payers with dramatic increases in reimbursement budgets is viewed as a major driving factor within Europe.

In Device M&A, Happy Days are Here Again

After dropping markedly for two consecutive years, both the number of acquisitions in medical devices and the total dollar volume of those deals jumped significantly in 2003, reaching 71 and $9.17 billion, respectively. And if the dollar volumes and number of deals in 2003 weren't good news enough, an analysis of some of the trends behind the deal-making should give device executives even more cause to be happy. Thus, while a significant number of the total deals do fall within only two clinical categories, cardiovascular and orthopedics, the larger picture shows an M&A climate that is quite diversified. Similarly, the perception that deal-making is concentrated in the hands of a small group of large companies isn't borne out by the data. That said, new technology trends, most notably the convergence of drugs and devices, and new deal structures suggest, at least anecdotally, that device M&A may be changing.
