Pune, India, April 2019 /MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future published a half-cooked research report on the global market for soft tissue repair.
The Global Soft Tissue Repair Market is expected to grow at an approximate CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period, 2018–2023.
The rising cases of sports-related injuries and technological advancements are some of the key factors driving the soft tissue repair market. For instance, in 2016, Colorado Therapeutics received FDA approval for its xenograft implant. The xenograft implant is designed for the surgical repair of damaged or ruptured membranes.
Various other factors such as increasing awareness about orthopedic disorders and other related conditions, improvement in reimbursement policies, untapped emerging markets, and increasing healthcare expenditure are also expected to propel the growth of the market.
However, the high cost of advanced equipment and a shortage of physicians in emerging markets can hamper market growth over the forecast period.
The Americas dominated the global market for soft tissue repair owing to the increasing healthcare expenditure presence of major market players and rising geriatric population within the region. As per the data suggested by the United Census Bureau, by 2060, the US is projected to grow by 79 million people, from about 326 million today to 404 million. The population is projected to cross the 400-million threshold in 2058.
In 2017, it was estimated that Europe stood second in the global soft tissue repair market. Robust research and development (R&D) sector along with the availability of funding opportunities in research and innovation will support the market growth.
Asia-Pacific (APAC) is expected to represent the phenomenal market growth throughout the forecast period due to increasing demand for medical technology, growing health awareness, and growing aging population coupled with the rising prevalence of orthopedic diseases in India, Japan, and Australia. For instance, according to the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), in 2016, around 12.4% of the population in the region was 60 years or older and is projected to reach to more than 1.3 billion by 2050.
On the other hand, the Middle East and Africa held the least share in the global soft tissue repair market due to the low economic development, especially within the African region.
