The scope of the orthopedic cell therapy market in this report covers platelet-rich plasma and concentrated bone marrow aspirate.The platelet and bone marrow concentration market consists of centrifuge equipment that separates and concentrates platelets and cells based on their various densities.

There has been much greater interest in bone marrow concentration for use in spinal fusions compared to platelet-rich plasma. The platelet-rich plasma market, on the other hand, is expanding into soft tissue indications. While bone graft substitutes can be soaked in PRP or bone marrow concentrate as an application, the most rapidly growing application, especially for platelet-rich plasma, is for injectables. Such products are directly injected into the site, for example, in a ligament repair or wound operation.
Competition over price is the reason the market values for these segments are not growing as quickly as might be expected. Arthrex significantly brought down the ASP for the market when they introduced their ACP® platelet concentration system, but prices have now largely stabilized in the PRP segment. Test-tube-based products allow for concentration of smaller volumes; these systems reduce ASP further as customers can shift away from higher ASP disposable bucket products.
