SAN FRANCISCO, October 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

The global knee implant market was valued at USD 8.8 billion in 2015 and is expected to reach a value of USD 12.4 billion by 2024. This growth is majorly attributed to growing elderly population and surging prevalence of chronic rheumatic conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and post-traumatic arthritis. Primary factors that lead to the occurrence of arthritis are aging, physical injuries, genetic inheritance factors, abnormal metabolism, infections, and immune system abnormalities.
