Chinese Market for Orthopedic Soft Tissue Repair & Sports Medicine 2012 – MedSuite


The Chinese market for orthopedic soft tissue repair and sports medicine includes shoulder repair (rotator cuff repair and labrum repair devices), anterior and posterior cruciate ligament (ACL/PCL) reconstruction and fixation products, meniscal repair devices and hyaluronic acid (HA) viscosupplementation.

Sports injury related markets focus on repairing torn tissue that would not readily heal under normal circumstances. Similarly, therapies focused on degeneration predominantly deal with cartilage, one of the slowest healing tissues in the human body. Moreover, HA viscosupplementation is used for the treatment of degeneration of the synovial fluid in the knee, which is mainly caused by osteoarthritis. Essentially, this market is driven by patients who are very active, more elderly or some combination of the two. It is not as dependent on the aging baby boomer population as observed in the arthroscopy market, but demographic trends will encourage the market to follow that direction as well. The fixation device market is mainly categorized into those that are resorbable and those that are non-resorbable.

The Chinese market for orthopedic soft tissue repair and sports medicine was valued at
$154 million in 2011.

The orthopedic soft tissue repair and sports medicine market includes shoulder repair
(rotator cuff and shoulder labrum repair), knee repair (anterior and posterior cruciate
ligament fixation products and meniscal repair devices) and hyaluronic acid
viscosupplementation. None of these segments were affected by the financial crisis of 2011
and are expected to grow rapidly, driven by the aging and active population and an increased
awareness of the sports medicine field. Due to the largely untapped demand for sports
medicine procedures in China, this market has a very high potential for growth.
