COVID-19 Impact on the Spinal Implants Market

The surge in SARS-CoV-2 infection has also boosted the apprehension with regard to reduced supply of essential medical devices that are used for treating not only the novel coronavirus but other disorders and ailments as well. The pandemic has weakened the demand for spine implants since treatments in this regard have been put on hold in favor of COVID patients, leading to slower market growth.

The pandemic and the resultant global lockdown have prompted companies to accelerate their manufacturing processes. However, the situation has been worsened by the lack of workforce as the social distancing practice has become the norm since the COVID-19 outbreak. Automation and robotics are the latest trends in the spinal implants market, as the adoption of these technologies is helping manufacturers to bridge the supply and demand gap.
