Opportunities of the industry in Ukraine and international expansion

Currently 5 largest Ortho producers (Stryker, DePuy / Synthes, Zimmer /Biomet, Smith & Nephew, Medtronic Spine) control the global market and they are the “trend setters” in the field of traumatology and orthopedics.

According to statistics, the following countries are the leading suppliers of the implants for osteosynthesis and equipment for implants insertion to Ukraine (TOP-5) within 2015-2018:

  • China (average share within four years – 39.9%);
  • Czech Republic (12.6%);
  • Switzerland (10.9%);
  • Poland (9.6%);
  • Netherlands (7.3%).

The cumulative share of the abovementioned countries was equal to more than 80% from the total volume of imports of products for osteosynthesis.
