In thumb arthritis, the cushion-like cartilage inside the CMC joint breaks down, causing the bones to rub against each other. Increasing prevalence of thumb arthritis, growing geriatric and obese population, and rising healthcare expenditure are some of the major factors estimated to drive the market growth during the forecast period. However, the high cost of the surgical therapeutics along with related complications is estimated to restrain the market growth during the forecast period.

The disease's few symptoms include pain in the thumb joint, swelling at the base of the thumb, an enlarged or bony-appearing joint there, a decrease in strength when squeezing or holding other items, among others. Degenerative arthritis, the second most prevalent type of arthritis, is caused by the cartilage wearing down as people age. Additionally, rheumatoid arthritis or lupus can damage joints.
