Industry Insights

[211+ Pages Report] According to Facts and Factors, the global artificial tendons and ligaments market size was worth around USD 19.09 million in 2021 and is predicted to grow to around USD 56.61 million by 2028 with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of roughly 16.80% between 2022 and 2028. The report analyzes the global artificial tendons and ligaments market’s drivers, restraints/challenges, and the effect they have on the demands during the projection period. In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the artificial tendons and ligaments market.

logoMarket Overview

A ligament is a section of connective tissue that holds two bones together. The ligament is a fibrous band of connective fibers that supports the internal organs and holds the bones together at the joints. The white ligament, which is rich in collagenous fibers, and the yellow ligament, which is rich in elastic fibers, are the two main types of ligament. A damaged tendon is replaced with an artificial tendon, a strengthening substance. Artificial tendons are made from bio-compatible materials such PET (polyethylene terephthalate), polypropylene, and polyacrylonitrile (sodium styrene sulfonate). A technique to 3D print human tissue, including tendons and ligaments, was recently created by a team of researchers from the biomedical department at the University of Utah.

The frequency of sports injuries, the rise in interest in minimally invasive surgery, the prevalence of sports injuries, the advantages of artificial tendons and ligaments, and the issues with the usage of orthobiologics are all elements that are fostering the market's expansion.

Rising sports injury rates, growing government initiatives to increase public awareness of artificial tendons and ligaments, and rising R&D investment in artificial ligaments and tendons are some of the factors propelling the growth of the global artificial tendons and ligaments market. The aging population and growing need for minimally invasive operations both contribute to tendon and ligament degeneration difficulties, which will cause the market for artificial tendons and ligaments to grow. Healthcare providers' reluctance to use artificial tendons and ligaments, the high cost of therapy, and subpar reimbursement rules are the main obstacles to the growth of the artificial tendons and ligament market.

logo Growth Drivers

  • Increasing incidence of sports injuries is the key factor driving the market.

The majority of sports-related injuries are brought on by mishaps, bad technique, inadequate warm-up & stretching, and a lack of conditioning. Ankle sprain, groyne pull, hamstring strain, ACL tear, and tennis elbow are among the most prevalent types of sports injuries found among players. 

Additionally, a sizable portion of people is ignorant of the safety precautions that apply to sports, which can lead to a variety of mild to severe injuries. A&E departments in England treated an estimated 165,000 cases of sports-related injuries in 2016, according to Accident & Emergency (A&E) figures released by the U.K. Parliament.

logo Restraints

  • High procedure cost to restrict the market growth

On the other hand, it is anticipated that the procedure's high cost and the negative reimbursement condition will restrain market expansion. In the forecast period of 2022–2028, the artificial tendons and ligaments market is expected to face challenges from healthcare providers who are reluctant to utilize artificial tendons and ligaments and from a lack of clinical evidence demonstrating their effectiveness.

logo Opportunities

  • Advancements in surgical procedures to provide growth opportunities

The problems with tendon and ligament tissue engineering may be resolved with the use of advanced composite materials. These methods still have drawbacks, such as the requirement for larger-scale animal models to facilitate future clinical translation and thorough evaluation of tissue response following implantation.

logoSegmentation Analysis

The global Artificial Tendons and Ligaments market is segmented based on application, end user, and region.

Based on application the market is segmented into knee injuries, shoulder injuries, foot & ankle injuries, spine injuries, hip injuries, and others. Due to a variety of factors, including an increase in sports participation, an increase in the frequency of knee injuries, discomfort at the harvest site as a result of conventional surgical treatment methods using autografts and allografts, and the advantages of artificial tendons and ligaments over autografts and allografts, the knee injuries segment dominated the global artificial tendons and ligaments market.

The other uses category includes conditions such as hip dislocation, elbow injuries, and spinal injuries. The segment is anticipated to expand rapidly as a result of the rise in entire femoral tumor removals and prosthetic replacement surgeries, both of which have high success rates. Among the significant products in this area are Cousin Biotech's NAJA and IntraSpine, LARS, and InternalBrace.

By end user, the market is divided into hospitals, specialty clinics, ambulatory surgery centers, and others. Due to a high risk of postoperative problems and high patient turnover, the hospitals segment led the global artificial tendons and ligaments market. Supportive infrastructure, which assists in efficient operations, will also encourage the adoption of these grafts in hospitals and clinics' end-user facilities.

logoRecent Developments:

  • In June 2018, a team of Swiss researchers developed a microplate system for printing engineered muscle and tendon tissue. This system may help as a therapeutic application to treat a variety of muscle disorders.
  • In January 2018, a team of scientists from the University of Colorado Boulder engineered a humanlike artificial muscle that is cheap, flexible, and strong.
