According to Allied Market Research, the global interbody fusion cage market was valued at $1,818 million in 2016, and is expected to reach $2,309 million by 2023 at a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period.
Rise in geriatric population and increase in incidences of spinal injuries and sports injuries drive the growth of the market. In addition, surge in demand for interbody fusion cage surgeries due to advantages that allow the surgeon to directly decompress nerves and reconstruct the spine further fuels the market growth. However, high costs associated with spinal fusion surgeries, lack of trained professionals as well as stringent rules & regulations to use these devices hamper the market growth. Moreover, the launch of novel interbody fusion cages with new compatible materials create more opportunities in the market.
Thes interbody fusion market according to the material is still dominated by PEEK but with a strong trend towards porous materials and especially titanium.
How many Devices compete in this market?
There are at least 32 different TLIF porous Cages. Please to know more visit:http://www.thespinemarketgroup.com/category/3d-ifc/
Today, we have selected 10 Porous Titanium PLIF/TLIF Devices that have been launched recently and probably are not as known as their deserve according to their features and benefits that they provide (in Alphabetical order):
1.- ARIES TC | OSSEUS
Aries™ interbody fusion devices feature a proprietary multi-axis mesh and optimized micro-surface topology, both of which are designed to facilitate fusion. The product’s lattice helps increase the implant’s porosity to 80%, which provides unparalleled in-situ radiovisibility compared with other titanium implants. The implant’s anatomic profile, anti-migrational teeth, and streamlined insertion are designed to increase procedural efficiencies.

3.- 3D Printed TLIF |Global Biomedica
This TLIF Cage has been manufactured in biocompatible titanium (Ti64ELI) with the latest 3D printing technology DMSL (Direct Metal Laser Sintering).
Internal and surface grid structure (Cube vertex centroid – lattice) with reinforced edges ensures not only high stability and resistance to deformation of the cage, or immersion in the vertebral body, but also bioactivity – potentiates the formation of bone in the area of contact surfaces and thus the formation of a strong connection between the cage and bone, the risk of developing nonunion ( pseudoarthrosis ) is thus minimized. This property is particularly outstanding when compared to the widely used PEEK implants (poly-ether-ether-ketone).
TLIF range includes 54 size types ( 9 different heights – 7 to 15mm, and two different angles of lordosis). Thus, a wide range of modern tools for simple and, if necessary, minimally invasive cage insertion was designed.

4.- Hexanium TLIF | SpineVision
The Hexanium TLIF cage is a 3D printed interbody system made of titanium. The titanium rough surface & optimized porosity of the cage enhance a strong primary integration & optimal bone in-growth. The Hexanium TLIF honeycomb structure provides a well shared resistance allowing a large vizualisation window & large bone graft chamber to reduce the risk of subsidence.

8.- TirboLOX-L | Captiva Spine
Captiva Spine’s TirboLOX (Titanium Reinforced Bone) titanium lumbar (TLIF and PLIF) interbody cages are created using an advanced 3D printing technology. This is an additive manufacturing process that enabled TirboLOX implants to have unique surface features and structures not possible with traditional machining. Purposely designed to potentially promote a strong interface between metal and bone (biologic fixation) TirboLOX incorporates:

10.- WOMBAT ST | SIGNUS
WOMBAT ST consists of a titanium grid structure that, with its defined pore design, imitates the architecture of natural bone. The interconnectivity of the pores ensures optimal oxygen and nutrient supply, creating an optimized basis for bony ingrowth. The implant also offers more room for fusion, with 70 % of WOMBAT ST consisting of pores. The roughness of the implant – in addition to its proven SIGNUS teeth design – optimizes the primary stability and counteracts migration of the implant. In addition, the lateral surfaces are embedded in a smooth frame in order to keep the amount of preparation needed low and to protect the nerval structures during implantation.
