According to the latest study by iData Research, the U.S. sports medicine market was valued at $1.7 billion by 2020. The total market is highly limited by the relatively stable incidence rate of tendon and ligament injuries, which varies greatly among different anatomies and different population groups.

In spite of this trend, the level of innovation has been increasing within the US market and multiple companies have made strategic product launches to improve their market positioning in 2020.
