According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Soft Tissue Repair Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global soft tissue repair market reached a value of US$ 12.8 Billion in 2021. Soft tissue repair is a remedial intervention used to replace the damaged soft tissues, such as muscles, tendons, nerves, fascia, ligaments, synovial membrane, and blood vessels, with healthy tissues. This process consists of two parts, namely regeneration and repair. Some of the common causes of injury include sprain, trauma, contusion, tendonitis, bursitis, and overstress of muscles. Soft-tissue injuries can generate intense pain and restrict the movement, thereby leading to chronic discomfort. As a result, various treatment options are applied to repair soft tissues, including surgery, rapid healing products, and minimally invasive (MI) procedures. Amongst these, surgery entails operations that use grafts, anchors, sutures, and other devices made from biomaterials to restructure, rebuild, and repair injured tissues, thereby assisting in restoring functionality.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
Global Soft Tissue Repair Market Trends:
The global soft tissue repair market is primarily being driven by the increasing instances of soft tissue injuries due to increasing health consciousness and the rising participation in sports activities. Additionally, with rapid technological advancements, there has been an increase in the use of allografts and xenografts for various soft tissue augmentation procedures, including dural repair, chest wall construction, cardiovascular surgery, and pelvic organ prolapse repair. This is further supported by favorable reimbursement policies and the availability of abundant raw materials for its production, which is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. Moreover, manufacturers are continuously investing in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce innovative product variants, such as replacing traditional synthetic meshes with biological graft materials, to meet the rising need for speeding up the process of soft tissue injury repair. These products offer enhanced biocompatibility, strength, and aesthetics, which, in turn, is creating a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.8% during 2022-2027.
