Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) February 03, 2013
In 2011, the total Brazilian market for orthopedic trauma devices was valued at over $ 460 million. This market includes plates and screws, intramedullary nails, hip intramedullary nails, compression hip screws, cannulated screws and external fixation devices. All of these segments experienced positive growth in 2011, as the aging population and the high number of motor vehicle accidents in Brazil continued to drive demand. The overall market is largely divided in terms of pricing set by the public SUS system and prices influenced by private insurance companies. The ASPs of products purchased through public healthcare are stable; however, there has been a gradual decline in ASPs in the private healthcare sector. Overall, the strong positive growth in all segments will allow the entire market to grow rapidly over the 20112018 forecast period.
This report pertains to a forecast period of 10 years (2008 2018) for Brazil.
