Meniscus repair systems are used in the surgical repair of torn meniscus. Meniscus is a fibrous cartilage present in the knee joint, which act as a shock absorber and provide stability to the knee joint. Torn or damaged meniscus causes pain and limits mobility of the knee joint. Meniscus repair systems help in restoring the anatomical structure and function of the knee joint.
Market key trends:
The rising incidence of sports-related injuries such as anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears and meniscal tears is a major factor driving the growth of the market. According to data from National Safety Council, around 2.8 million people suffer sports injuries annually in the United States. Additionally, rising awareness about meniscal repair procedures and their advantages over meniscectomy is further fueling the adoption of meniscus repair systems. Moreover, technological advancements in arthroscopic surgical procedures have facilitated lesser invasive repairs, resulting in quicker recovery time and reduced post-surgical complications, thus propelling the market growth.
The global Meniscus Repair Systems Market Share is estimated to be valued at US$ 858.7 Million in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 8.7% over the forecast period 2023 – 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
