The hip and knee replacement markets are both expected to be primarily driven by the younger 45–65 year demographic going for early joint replacement in the future. Companies are increasingly targeting these individuals through advanced joint implants, new minimal invasive procedures and direct to customer marketing. Improved implant materials and innovative design are increasing the life of the implants, enabling younger patients to undergo treatment without worrying about implant failure later in life. Advancements in procedures have led to the emergence of minimal invasive techniques and partial joint replacements, which enable early recovery and greater range of movement. These incremental technological breakthroughs are enabling younger patients to safely undergo joint replacements. Direct to customer marketing is also helping create a positive perception about the surgery, promoting it as a lifestyle option in which individuals can remain more active into old age.

Zimmer Holdings Inc, Stryker Corp. and DePuy Inc., are the leading competitors in the US hip and knee replacement market, together accounting for 70% of market share in 2008. Other significant players are Smith & Nephew and Biomet. Zimmer is the market leader in both hip and knee replacement markets with a 29% and 26% market share respectively. Product differentiation; especially in the knee replacement market, such as gender solutions and a range of high-flex knees; has enabled Zimmer to maintain its dominance. Zimmer recently announced that it will start developing products aimed at meeting the specific needs of obese patients. However, in 2008, it lost some market share in the hip replacement market, due to product recall of Durom Acetabular component following reports of cup loosening and high revision rates.
Overall, the US hip and knee replacement market is expected to witness robust growth in 2008–2015 as a result of the increased number of younger patients going for surgery, and increased market penetration of existing technologies.
