Changing European population demographics is the main driver of growth in the orthopedic soft tissue market. As the baby boomer generation reaches 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.
One major trend within the orthopedic soft tissue repair market is the shift towards all-suture anchors, also known as soft anchors. Suture anchors are used in many segments in the market and the emergence of this new segment has shifted the dynamic of some 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.
