Millennium Research Group reports that Price Competition and Increased Use of Reprocessed and Refurbished Devices to Limit Growth in Us Arthroscopy Market (December 12, 2011):

While procedure volumes will increase, there will also be a significant downward pressure on selling prices of arthroscopic devices. The mature and commoditized arthroscopy market has seen little technical innovation in recent years. As a result, products are relatively undifferentiated and competition is largely on price. Additionally, increasing rates of reprocessing of single-use devices and refurbishing of reusable devices will exert further downward pressure on selling prices.
