The market research analysis categorizes the global soft tissue repair market into three major product segments. They are:

  • Cell therapy market
  • Tissue scaffold market
  • Soft tissue fixation devices and accessories

Global cell therapy market

Cell therapy is a process in which living cells are injected into the body, which helps in restoring the function of a diseased or a damaged organ. Injury in bone and cornea can be treated with cell therapy by grafting or implanting tissue. Many types of somatic and stem cells can be used in cell therapy, which includes embryonic stem cells, adult stem cells and progenitor stem cells, hematopoietic stem cells, and mesenchymal stem cells. These cells are used for therapeutic treatments in dermatology, ophthalmology, and orthopedics. Companies such as Organogenesis and Acelity are developing cell therapy products.

Global tissue scaffold market

The human body has limited regenerative capacity; therefore, tissue engineering is considered as a primary approach to repair the damages in tissues and organs. Biological materials like cells are combined, and tissue scaffolds are developed through tissue regeneration methods. The scaffolds are tissue engineered to provide support for cell adhesion, proliferation, and differentiation that helps in self-healing. Tissue scaffolds are transplanted into a human body for tissue repair or recovery of damaged tissue.

Global soft tissue fixation devices and accessories

Soft tissue fixation devices and accessories include mesh, screws, anchors, soft tissue clinch, and suture devices. These accessories are used for orthopedic, dental, dermatology, and other applications.

Companies such as Zimmer Biomet and NORAKER are developing bioabsorbable soft tissue screws. Manufacturers are also focusing on developing mesh with biological products, which can work as a substitute for human allograft. For instance, Mölnlycke Health Care developed EZ Derm, which is used as a dressing for wound therapy. Pins and wires are used independently or in conjunction with other internal fixation devices like meshes. These internal fixation devices are used for trauma and reconstructive products such as hip replacement and spine surgeries.

“The increase in patient population will increase the use of the procedure which will lead to the growth of the market. The soft tissue fixation devices and accessories market is dominated by Medtronic, Zimmer Biomet, and Smith & Nephew,” says Srinivas.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s healthcare and life sciences market research analysts in this report are:

  • Acelity
  • Arthrex
  • Ethicon
  • Medtronic
