Understanding market size can be crucial to evaluate opportunities and make informed decisions about market entry and exit. Medical device companies can identify attractive segments in respective markets as well as develop marketing strategies based on forecasts for those segments.

Bone cement helps restore functionality, provides elasticity to the zone between the prosthesis and the bone stock and maintains the mechanical stability of the prosthesis. Bone cement is composed of two components: PMMA (Polymethyl methacrylate) amorphous powder and MMA (methyl methacrylate) liquid stabilizer. This category includes both antibiotic and nonantibiotic bone cement. The use of antibiotic-loaded bone cements allows for high concentrations of antibiotics to be administered to the local areas surrounding the implant, protecting it from germs and preventing infection. Nonantibiotic bone cement is used to fixate artificial joints to the bone and fill non-union fractures.

The bone cement market in South Africa can expand or contract due to a variety of reasons including population demographics, disease incidence and prevalence, macroeconomic issues, and geopolitical considerations. Disruption to a market could be caused by a sudden, unexpected change in these factors, but it could also be driven by changes in clinical practice, leading to a change in diagnosis or treatment of patients, as part of a process to generally improve medical practice.
