However, there are some industry characteristics that might inhibit the company’s rapid growth. According to iData Research, the expected annual growth for the Orthobiologics market from 2014 to 2021 is only 3.4%, and for the spinal Fusion Hardware market the growth figure is even lower at just 0.7%. Thus it is not surprising that since its IPO on June 19, SeaSpine Holdings Corp (NASDAQ:SPNE)’s stock has fallen by about 15%. However, Broadfin Capital and Bridger Management’s latest move might suggest that this presents a great entry point, especially considering that the company currently only has 18% market share in the orthobiologics segment.
