Soft Tissue Repair Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Rise in Geriatric Population - As per the WHO predictions, one in six individuals on the planet will be 60 years of age or older by 2030. At this point, there will be 1.4 billion people over the age of 60, up from 1 billion in 2020. When people age, their physical systems age as well, including the musculoskeletal system. One may notice a decline in general quickness and movement as well as weaker bones and less slender muscles. The possibility of falls and injuries is raised as a result of these changes. Although there are more than a hundred varieties of arthritis, osteoarthritis is the most prevalent one that affects the elderly.
  • Surge in Prevalence of Obesity - According to the WHO, around the globe, 650 million adults, 340 million teenagers, and 39 million children are obese, making up over 1 billion people. It is generally accepted that obesity produces abnormal body mechanics that negatively impact joint function due to the increased stress on the skeletal system. One of the main risk factors for the onset and progression of osteoarthritis in load-bearing joints, such as the knee but also the hip and ankle, is obesity. Changes in gait and higher joint stress are thought to be the primary biomechanical impacts of obesity on joints. This consequently results in greater strain on the articular cartilage and may also result in increased stress in the synovial fluid, subchondral bone, and ligamentous and capsular structures of the joint. Therefore, the market demand for soft tissue repair is surging.
  • Rising Prevalence of Tendinitis in Sports People  - As the fibrous tissue that joins muscles to bones, a tendon can become inflamed and develop tendinitis. For instance, sportsmen who execute the same motion repeatedly are at risk of developing tendinitis owing to overuse and repetitive motion. Moreover, there has been growing participation of athlete which is making scope for the growth of the market.


  • Unfavorable Reimbursement Policies - Large sums of money must be invested in the development of new soft tissue repair treatments, and it often takes longer for such products to be approved for sale. The FDA, for instance, has mandated that soft tissue repair product producers acquire premarket clearance (PMA) before releasing their goods onto the market. The product must provide appropriate clinical trial data in support of this, and this data must be provided with the PMA application. With very little possibility of approval, a product must incur significant costs and take a very long time to reach the clinical trial stage and then complete the trials.
  • Lack of Skilled Professional - Advanced biosurgery solutions are gradually replacing conventional wound closure items including staples and sutures. Even though these goods provide better results, their effective use requires qualified surgeons and doctors. The usage of soft tissue healing products is highly complex due to the various effects and contradictions associated with their use. For instance, patients may experience issues including anastomotic leakage as a result of incorrect application of these products. In light of these developments, soft tissue repair product applications and the technology landscape are evolving quickly. Due to this, doctors and other healthcare professionals need to understand how to use cutting-edge soft tissue repair materials including synthetic mesh, allograft, and xenograft. However, lack of skilled workers is set to restrain the growth of the market.
  • High Price of the Treatment

Soft Tissue Repair Segmentation

Product Type (Fixation Devices, Tissue Scaffold, Cell-Therapy Based)

Soft tissue repair market from the fixation devices segment to gather the highest share of over 50% during the coming years. Fixation devices serve as an alternative for the bone structure and are composed of synthetic materials. As the bones heal after surgery or an injury, they serve to stabilize and support them. A wide range of ailments, such as fractures and sports injuries, may be treated with fixation devices. Interference screws and suture anchors are a couple of the fixing tools. Suture anchors are frequently employed in arthroscopic surgery and sports medicine as essential instruments for fastening soft tissue to the bone.  Further, the interference screw is a direct tendon-to-bone interference fixing tool. By reaching out and compressing the graft with the screw threads, this common compression fixation tool fixes the graft. Thus, during the forecast period, the growing necessity for fixation devices in soft tissue repair will propel the segment's expansion.

End-User (Hospitals & Clinics, Ambulatory Surgical Centers [ASCs], Physician Office)

The hospitals & clinics segment in the soft tissue repair market is projected to capture the highest revenue of about 50% over the coming years. This could be on account of the rising number of hospitals. The number of hospitals globally as of 2021 was estimated to be approximately 164,000. Furthermore, there has been a surge in investment in the hospital sector. Therefore, medical technology and healthcare administration techniques have become more innovative as a result of the growing investments in the field. Hence, more people are driving for orthopedic treatment in hospitals. Furthermore, several significant medical industry companies are looking into inorganic expansion prospects. Additionally, this will likely end up resulting in more beds being added as a result of mergers and acquisitions. Therefore, this is estimated to boost the segment growth hence further influencing the market revenue.
