Revenue by geography and product line

2022 shows strong growth in all geographies, with the strongest growth rate in Europe, where revenue registered an increase of 17.6% on a constant currency basis to Euro 187.4 million. The growth was driven by customer acquisition, together with normalization of surgical activities.

Revenue in North America increased to Euro 136.8 million, or 11.5% on a constant currency basis, thanks to our customer acquisition, which was limited by the impact of Covid-19 and hospital staffing shortages especially in the first months of the year.

Asia Pacific grew by 11.2% on a constant currency basis to Euro 94.4 million, mainly driven by the attainment of new customers in Japan. Australia was limited by significant longer than expected COVID impact, with recovery only in the last months of the year.

RoW registered revenue for Euro 18.6 million, an increase of 38.7% on a constant currency basis, mainly thanks to increased purchases from stocking distributors in Latin America.
