Cartilage Repair Market Analysis | Europe | 2017-2023 | MedCore
Articular cartilage is a connective tissue that lines the ends of bones in joints. 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 this tissue are poorly vascularized and, as proper healing requires adequate blood flow, cartilage is one 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 to osteobiologic cartilage repair. Damage to cartilage is difficult to treat because the tissue lacks blood supply and has limited capacity for self repair.

Due to stringent regulation and a lack of national reimbursement in most regions, several companies which were once active in the segment, such as TiGenix and Vericel, have either completely withdrawn from the market or shifted their focus to other regions in the world. Despite the uncertainty surrounding the EMA decision, the ACI market is expected to remain the largest segment in the total cartilage repair market over the forecast period.
