Injuries, defects, and diseases affecting the head, neck, face, jaws, and hard and soft tissues of the cranial and maxillofacial region are treated during surgeries using CMF devices. The CMF devices market consists of implants, software, anatomic models, instruments, and surgical guides.

CMF (Craniomaxillofacial) Devices Market is estimated at $2.2 Bn (2022) growing at a CAGR of ~6.8%. The market growth is driven by growing volumes of CMF procedures and the rising adoption of patient specific implants.

High incidence of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) is driving the demand for CMF devices

One of the most frequent causes of death and disability in adults is head injuries. The Journal of Neurosurgery estimates that 69 million individuals across the globe are estimated to sustain a TBI each year. In the US, 2.8 million TBIs occur yearly (Source: CDC). Large number of TBIs and associated skull fractures are driving the demand for CMF devices.

Sports related injuries are propelling the volumes of CMF procedures

The market for CMF devices is anticipated to rise as the incidence of sports-related injuries rises. According to John Hopkins Medicine, over 3.5 million sports-related injuries are recorded each year in the U.S and almost one-third of all injuries suffered in childhood are sports-related injuries.

Growing demand for patient specific implants (PSIs)

The CMF (Craniomaxillofacial) devices market is dominated by standard/off-the-shelf implants. However, there is an increasing need for patient-specific implants. This is due to advances in imaging techniques that allow physicians to recreate a computerized model of the patient's anatomy and provide personalized solutions. Additionally, improvements in the CMF planning software have introduced tools that help surgeons make almost any measurement possible and align the bone segments in a perfectly symmetrical manner. This has enabled designing patient specific solutions with high accuracy.

Point of Care (POC) 3D Printing to offer growth opportunities in CMF (Craniomaxillofacial) Devices Market

In the upcoming years, point of care (POC) 3D printing is projected to gain more momentum. Hospitals are progressively looking for POC 3D printing solutions owing to its benefits like direct communication between engineer and the surgeon and accelerated delivery. Key players such as KLS Martin have already started concentrating on POC services. Charite hospital (Germany) recently entered into a public-private partnership with KLS Martin. They invested together in hospital printers, and KLS is printing implants for Charite.

North America leads the adoption of CMF (Craniomaxillofacial) Devices Market

Geographically speaking, North America has a major market share of global CMF devices revenues. This is mostly attributed to the large volumes of CMF procedures, high incidence of trauma injuries, relatively greater penetration and reimbursement of CMF products in the region.
