Regenerative Medicines: Bone and Joint Applications
The U.S. market for regenerative medicine products used in bone and joint applications is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.8% from $2.9 billion in 2015 to nearly $4.1 billion in 2020.
This report provides:
An overview of the market for regenerative medicines in bone and joint applications, whose key objectives are the utilization of living cells to repair or replace body tissue damaged by injury, disease, or the aging process.
Analyses of market trends, with data from 2014, estimates for 2015, and projections of CAGRs through 2020.
Coverage of other regenerative applications, such as dental, neurologic, organ regeneration, cardiovascular, urologic, diabetes, and wound care, as well as stem cell research.
Identification of market drivers, including an increase in diseases and disorders that will benefit from these products, primarily arthritis, osteoporosis, and various types of bone and joint trauma (e.g., hip fractures, knee injuries); increasing use of nonautograft products by physicians; and innovative devices that incorporate bone- and cartilage-growth-stimulating agents in a regenerative appliance.
Descriptions of products, such as bone and cartilage grafting and regenerative products derived from autologous, allogeneic, and synthetic sources, as well as electrical stimulators for bone growth and regenerative cartilage products.
STUDY SCOPE AND FORMAT
The U.S. has been the main regenerative medicine market in terms of R&D innovation, patents and product sales often accounting for as much as half of the market depending on the product niche; hence, the scope of the study is mainly the U.S., although worldwide developments are discussed and measurements provided where relevant. The Overview section provides a background of the demographics underlying the market for bone and joint products, a definition of regenerative medicine and the technologies involved, and a discussion of regenerative products in development for applications other than bones and joints. Various application sections describe the leading bone and joint diseases and disorders applicable to regenerative technologies, including incidence and current methods of treatment.
The section on Products provides extensive descriptions and analyses (e.g., comparative analysis) of regenerative products used to treat bone and joint disorders, as well as a discussion of products in development.
The section on FDA clinical trials and newly approved products provides a discussion of regulatory issues affecting regenerative medicine products.
An extensive Company Profiles section provides estimates for the revenues of the leading companies and a concise description of leading and emerging companies in the area of regenerative products for bones and joints, including product introductions, patents and overall business strategies.
