Soft Tissue Repair Market by Type and Application – Global Industry Analysis and Forecast to 2025

Soft Tissue Repair Market Overview:

Soft tissues are primary group of mesenchymal tissue that supports and protects human body and structures such as organs. Soft tissues include ligaments, tendons, blood vessel, fibrous tissues and fats. The major cells of soft tissues are mesodermal in origin and non-epithelial in nature. Soft tissues are characterized by complex mechanical behavior and its mechanical properties vary from one person to another. Human soft tissues are highly deformable and are layered structures. The mechanical property of soft tissues depends on age, topography, physical and chemical environmental factors and osmotic pressure and pH of the cells.

Soft tissues injuries are damages to muscles, tendons and other soft tissues resulting in pain and inflammation. Most of the time soft tissue injuries are result of sudden or unexpected movement such as rolling over ankle or repetitive motions of body parts. Bruises, sprains and muscle contusions are some of the common soft tissue injuries characterized by damage to blood vessels resulting in characteristic purple color and swelling. Treatment depends on severity of injury. In the early stages cold therapy is often used to reduce swelling followed by electrotherapy to repair damaged ligaments. Conditions like tendinitis and bursitis can be effectively treated with anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids injection and splinting. Fixation devices and surgical mesh are also used to repair soft tissue injuries.

Increasing geriatric population with high risk of soft tissue injuries resisting body movement and function is key factor responsible for the growth of the global market. According to report published by U.S. Census Bureau in 2015, around 617 million people were of aged 60 and above and this number is expected to double and reach 1.6 billion by 2050. Such increasingly elderly population will surge demand for soft tissue repair treatments. Furthermore, increasing participation in sports, rise in disposable income of people and continuous technological innovations in medical devices will propel growth of the market. However, dearth of skilled professionals and high cost of treatment will hamper growth of soft tissue repair market.
