Global Sports Medicine Industry Trends

Overall, the global sports medicine market is projected to experience modest growth over the forecast period, largely limited by the longer durations of some of the procedures. Although arthroscopy offers many benefits when compared to open or mini-open surgeries, the operating time for arthroscopy is much longer. This limiting factor can be solved by innovations in products, such as knotless suture anchors.

The shift towards all-suture anchors, also known as soft anchors, is a major trend in the global sports medicine market. Suture anchors are used in many segments in the market and the emergence of this new segment has shifted the dynamic of some of the segments. All-suture anchors are smaller than the conventional suture anchors, being 1.8 mm in diameter as opposed to 3.0 mm in diameter. Requiring a smaller drill hole allows for difficult procedures to be performed with less damage to the bone during drilling. All-sutures have been gaining market share in both the rotator cuff repair and shoulder labrum repair markets. As a result, many competitors have introduced their own all-suture anchor products.

Changing population demographics is also a prominent driver of growth in the global sports medicine market. As the baby boomer generations reach retirement, their need for soft tissue arthroscopic surgery increases. Soft tissue repair is required for wear and tear of tendons, ligaments, and cartilage. This combined with the popularization of active lifestyles has made the need for orthopedic soft tissue repair increase. Arthroscopic surgery is becoming the preferable procedure as it is less invasive and reduces recovery time. Overall, the U.S. sports medicine market is projected to experience modest growth over the forecast period, which is, however, largely limited by the longer durations of some of the procedures.

Global Sports Medicine Market Share Insights

While Arthrex is the clear leading competitor in the United States, in the European region they trail behind Smith & Nephew by a significant margin. Arthrex has maintained its position as market leader by establishing its presence in the shoulder market while continuing to grow its presence in the knee and hip arthroscopy markets. Arthrex was the market leader in the rotator cuff, shoulder labrum, and biceps tenodesis markets with their extensive line of biocomposite suture anchors and screws.

For the knee market, Arthrex is trying to grow its shares with products in ACL/PCL fixation, cartilage repair, and meniscal repair. Arthrex has a small market lead in the ACL/PCL fixation market due to their dominance of the interference screw market with their BioComposite™ interference screw and their ACL TightRope®. In addition, Arthrex is able to pick up on trends towards new technologies, creating the FiberTak™ all-suture product line in response to the growing all-suture market.

The leading competitor in Europe is Smith & Nephew, with a strong position in almost all of the market segments. The company has a wide coverage of products across the shoulder, knee, and hip
segments. Smith & Nephew exhibited the strongest performance in the meniscal repair and hip arthroscopy markets and also had a notable position in the rotator cuff repair and shoulder album repair market. The company’s shoulder portfolio has a number of suture anchors like their BIORAPTOR™, OSTEORAPTOR™, HEALICOIL™, SPEEDLOCK™, SUTUREFIX™, and Q-FIX™.

Global Sports Medicine Statistics and Procedure Trends

Rotator cuff repairs are the second most common procedure performed in the United States with over 400,000 rotator cuff repairs done annually. The number of rotator cuff repairs should grow at a CAGR in the mid-to-low single digits, to nearly 600,000 by 2023. Rotator cuff repairs involve repairing tears in the rotator cuff tendon using suture anchors. These repairs are divided into single row and double row repairs, with double-row repairs being used for larger tears. Single row repairs consist of two to three suture anchors while double rows range from four to eight suture anchors per procedure. Single row repairs were the preferred technique in the past but double row procedures have since become the majority of the rotator cuff repair procedures done.

In Europe, rotator cuff repairs are just over half that of the United States, and a significantly greater portion of them performed using the Single Row method. Single row procedures are forecast to grow significantly over the forecast period, while double-row rotator cuff repairs will remain flat.
