LONDON, March 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DescriptionDownload the full report: Report Contents - Market Analyses include: Unit Sales, ASPs, Market Value & Growth Trends - Market Drivers & Limiters for each chapter segment - Competitive Analysis for each chapter segment - Section on recent mergers & acquisitions By far, the fastest growing segment over the forecast period is represented by microfracture adjunct market. The procedure is complementary to microfracture which provides a very large market for implant sales to penetrate. No other segment is expected to grow as strongly. Microfracture procedures are the standard to which new products and procedures are compared. Their positive results and low cost creates barriers for new product entry, as new products and procedures on the market must surpass microfracture procedures in terms of cost or efficacy. Surgeons repairing cartilage damage are no doubt awaiting new technological developments which may likely involve stem cell products offered at more competitive prices. However, an implant that will truly impact the market by providing clinically backed, long-term cartilage repair at low cost remains years away. AbstractCartilage is a connective tissue that lines the ends of bones. It provides shock absorption within the joint and prevents abrasion from occurring to the articular surfaces of bone. Cartilage, in its various forms, is found in intervertebral discs, as the articular lining for joint surfaces and in the meniscal pads of the knees. All types of cartilage are poorly vascularized and, as proper healing requires adequate blood flow, are some of the slowest healing tissues of the body. Osteoarthritis is cumulative trauma that eventually wears away at cartilaginous surfaces, exposing the underlying bone to additional wear. There are few alternatives for osteobiologic cartilage repair. Damage to cartilage is difficult to treat because the tissue lacks blood supply and has limited capacity for self-repair.
