156 Pages | 24 Exhibits | 2010 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2014 Product Family: Market Reports

This new report from Medtech Insight analyzes the market potential for tissue engineering products for musculoskeletal indications. The United States (U.S.) market for tissue engineering products for musculoskeletal applications is substantial, with many segments representing multibillion-dollar opportunities. In the U.S., the total potential market for these products is expected to exceed $39 billion in the year 2019.

Market segments covered by this report include products for the repair and replacement of bone, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and menisci. Product categories covered include three-dimensional matrices; autologous cultured chondrocytes; bone grafts and bone substitutes; bone morphogenetic proteins and other growth factors; cartilage regeneration implants; cell-mediated gene therapy; ligament, tendon, meniscal, and other soft tissue repair scaffolds; mesenchymal stem cells; recombinant signaling molecules; and other technology under development, such as radiofrequency and ultraviolet technology for cartilage regeneration.

Also provided are analyses of musculoskeletal tissue-engineered products and competitors and an overview of current biomaterial, cell transplantation, gene therapy, stem cell, and tissue regeneration technologies, along with disease incidence and prevalence figures, a review of existing therapies and treatments, and procedure volumes for the most prevalent musculoskeletal diseases/disorders.

This Medtech Insight report is the second in a series of reports covering U.S. tissue engineering markets. Upcoming reports in this series will provide analyses of U.S. markets for tissue-engineered products for neurologic, organ regeneration, skin replacement, and urologic applications. The first report in this series, #A421, "U.S. Markets for Cardiac and Vascular Tissue Engineering Products," was published in June 2010.
