Craniomaxillofacial devices are used to treat injuries of the mouth, skull, face, jaws, and related structures. Any CMF surgery results in a deficiency of natural soft tissue and bone. Thus, this will need an implant or a graft for wound closure and optimal healing. Blow to the head is the most common injury. Annually 7 million head injuries occur in the U.S. Nearly half of all head injuries are due to motor vehicle accidents. Another common type of head and facial injury is sport injury. CMF injuries range from a minor damage to the scalp (including abrasions and lacerations) to serious brain injury.
Rise in number of craniomaxillofacial surgeries, rapidly aging population as it is more prone to fractures, increasing adoption of advanced products, and growing demand for minimal invasive procedures are set to drive the global market for craniomaxillofacial devices. Growing number of sports-related injuries and advent of new technologies with proven clinical outcomes will further stimulate the growth of the market. However, the CMF surgery is associated with a risk of major complications which will hamper the market growth. Moreover, high cost of surgery and multiple surgery requirements are set to further challenge the growth of craniomaxillofacial devices market.
Elderly population is highly susceptible to CMF injuries due to falling. For instance, in the U.S., the number of older people (aged 65 and older) is expected to reach 98 million by 2060 from 46 million in 2016 (Source: The Population Reference Bureau Report on “Aging in the United States”). Moreover, increased life expectancy will further contribute to the market growth. The average life expectancy in the U.S. increased to 79 years in 2013 from 68 years in 1950. Thus, the rapidly aging population will accelerate the demand for CMF devices in near future. Such high target population will bring in ample growth opportunities for the development of advanced CMF products.
Though CMF surgeries are complex in nature, advanced surgical techniques have helped orthopedic surgeons to repair soft tissue injuries and severe deformities related to the face and cranium. This is primarily due to innovative implants and grafting materials that provide high potential for the patients to recover from such complex injuries. 3D printing will further revolutionize the CMF surgery. As two different patients cannot have same skull, the companies are developing patient specific 3D printed CMF implants (such as LaserImplants). These are designed directly based on the patient CT data needing only 10 days, provides accurate positioning and fixation, which makes it ideal for both simple and complex surgeries. Therefore, innovation in CMF surgery due to 3D printing will bring in ample growth opportunities for the manufacturers.
Major players operating in this market are W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc, Medtronic plc., Johnson & Johnson, Stryker Corporation, KLS Martin L.P., Zimmer-Biomet Inc., TMJ Concepts, Medartis AG, Integra LifeSciences, and OsteoMed L.P. These companies are aggressively marketing the CMF devices to expand and strengthen their customer base, thus increasing their global market share.

Market Modeling and Forecasting
We use epidemiology and capital equipment-based models to forecast market size of different segments at country and regional level.
- Epidemiology-based Forecasting Model: This method uses epidemiology data gathered through various publications and from physicians to estimate population of patients, flow of treatment of individual disease and therapies. The data collected through this method includes statics on incidence of disease, population suffering from disease, and treatment population. This method is used to understand:
- Number of patients for particular device or medical procedure and
- Repeated use of particular device depending on health and condition of patient
- Capital-based Forecasting Model: This method of forecasting is based on number of replacements, installed-based and new sales of capital equipment used in various healthcare and diagnostic centers. These three parameters are calculated and forecast is developed. Installation base is calculated as average number of units per facility; while sales for particular year is calculated from number of new and replace units. Secondary data is collected through various supply chain intermediaries and opinion leaders to arrive at installation and sales rate. These techniques help our analysts in validating market and developed market estimates and forecast.
We do forecast on basis of several parameters such as market drivers, market opportunities, industry trends government regulations, raw materials supply and trade dynamics to ensure relevance of forecast with market scenario. With increasing need to granulized information, we used bottom-up methodology for forecasting where we evaluate each regional segment differently and combined all forecast to develop final market forecast.
We believe primary research is a very important tool in analyzing and forecasting different markets. In order to make sure accuracy of our findings, our team conducts primary interviews at every stage of research to gain deep insights into current business environment and future trends and key developments in market. This includes use of various methods such as telephonic interviews, focus groups, face to face interviews and questionnaires to validate our research from all aspects. We validate our data through primary research from key industry leaders such as CEO, product managers, marketing managers, suppliers, distributors, and consumers are frequently interviewed. These interviews provide valuable insights which help us to have better market understanding besides validating our estimates and forecast.
