Increasing cases of joint pain in developed & developing countries and rapid development of injections that allow the doctor to assess the root causes of pain can also help to alleviate pain quickly is expected to impact the growth of joint pain injections market. The injections given on the facet joint are filled partially with an anesthetic agent that makes the muscles, ligaments, and articular capsules numb. The increased demand for non-surgical care has been recognized as a vital factor in driving the production during the forecast period of facet joint injections. In addition, it is also expected to contribute significantly to the overall build-up of the facet joint injection in the appraisal period to improve the focus on effective pain relief. Major players approach towards enhancing the business through strategic mergers & acquisitions and new product launches is expected to boost the global market growth. In 2017, Bioventus, a global medical service provider received US FDA approval for its knee osteoarthritis pain injection "Durolane”.

The product is a single-injection hyaluronic acid product that has been a proven OA knee pain reliever for patients for more than 15 years. Factors such as stringent government regulations related to product approval and high cost of treatment along with the product are factors expected to hamper the growth of global joint pain injections market. In 2017, Sanofi Genzyme, a biotechnology company had to initiate a voluntary product recall for one lot of “Synvisc-One”, a brand of hyaluronic acid. The lot was found with the contamination that increased the side effects of the medication. In 2012, over 1 million total joint arthroplasties were performed in the US with the cost of US$ 18.8 bn. In 2010, each total knee arthroplasty revision surgery was associated with total costs of US$ 49,360. In addition, high unmet needs among patients are expected to challenge the growth of target market. There are currently inadequate treatment options as they focus primarily on the relief of symptoms and reduction of pain. No medications are available to cure reverse or prevent the progression of illness, such as arthritis. In addition, some patients cannot find relief with current medications and still experience pain, so in patients with joint pain, there are significant unmet needs. However, increasing investment by major players for R&D activities, high healthcare spending by the government of developing countries, and introduction of enhanced solutions are factors expected to create new opportunities for major players operating in the joint pain injections market over the forecast period.
