Germany Meniscus Repair Systems Market Size, By Product Type, 2020 - 2030 (USD Million)

Increasing awareness about the availability of innovative products is urging hospitals to continuously upgrade their devices and services. In addition, reimbursement coverage of meniscus tears-related treatments has fueled the adoption of meniscus repair systems. Such factors allow customers to opt for advanced and high-prices devices, hence adding to the total sales generated. 

Geriatric population is one of the highest contributors to the demand for meniscus repair systems. This population is highly susceptible to torn meniscus as compared to athletes. The most common types of meniscal tears observed are majorly in the middle-aged to the elderly population and characterize degenerative tearing. Over a period of time, cartilage can be weakened and thin, making it prone to tearing in less-than-traumatic situations, such as when rising uneasily from a chair, or turning the leg on a step. 

Increasing awareness regarding the accessibility of innovative products is urging hospitals to continuously upgrade their devices and services. Additionally, reimbursement coverage of meniscus repair has surged the adoption of meniscus-related surgeries. Such factors allow patients to opt for advanced and high-prices devices, hence adding to the total revenue generated.

Furthermore, rise in the number of bone-related conditions, road accidents, and obesity is estimated to fuel the overall market growth. Obesity is one of the main causes of arthritis. As per the study published in the BMJ Journal in 2020, being obese or overweight raised the risk of knee osteoarthritis by 2.5 to 4.6 times as compared to of normal weight. Thus, a surge in the number of knee-related injuries and road accidents are major factors predicted to foster market growth. 

Product Type Insights

On the basis of product type, the market is segmented into an all-inside meniscal repair system, inside-out meniscal repair system, an outside-in meniscal repair system, and meniscal root repair system. Amongst them, all-inside meniscal repair system segment dominated the market share with more than 30% market share in 2022. All-inside meniscal repair systems reduce technical difficulty, surgical time, and risk to neuro-vascular structures. In addition, such systems offer avoidance of the risks associated with secondary incisions, reduced operative times, and the ease of use of implants. Hence, rising advantages related to all-inside meniscus repair systems along with surge in its adoption rate is estimated to enhance the segment expansion.

Global Meniscus Repair Systems Market Share, By Clinical Application, 2022 (%)

Inside-out meniscus repair systems segment captured considerable market share in 2022. Several advantages offered by inside-out meniscus repair systems include minimum implant cost, long-term results, flexibility to address most tear patterns, ability to deliver sutures with smaller needle diameters, leading to surge in adoption rate among healthcare professionals. Thus, the above-mentioned factors are anticipated to contribute to market growth.

Clinical Application Insights 

Based on application, the market is classified into radial tear, flap tear, horizontal tear, complex tear, and others. Radial tear is among the leading segment holding the largest market share in 2022. Radial meniscus tear has progressively become common, specifically in sports traumatology. For instance, as per Johns Hopkins Medicine, over 3.5 million children aged 14 and younger get hurt every year while participating in recreational activities or playing sports. Increasing developments of suture techniques in repairing radial meniscal tear is projected to augment the segment growth.

Horizontal tear segment witnessed around 5.3% CAGR during the forecast period. Repair can be recommended for all horizontal meniscus tears which can be repaired arthroscopically, thereby boosting the demand for meniscus repair systems. Horizontal tears may cause limited motion, pain, or sensation of knee locking or catching. In some circumstances, they can also cause stiffness and swelling in one’s knee. However, the patient can manage to walk with a horizontal meniscal tear, and several athletes can manage to play with a horizontal meniscal tear.

End-use Insights

Hospitals segment dominated the end-use segment in 2022. Hospitals account for a major share in the meniscal repair systems market, owing to growing number of hospital settings equipped with technologically advanced systems for conducting knee-related meniscal surgeries. The WHO data showed 73% of highly specialized hospitals performed more than 3000 surgeries annually in comparison with the 18% hospitals with low specialization. Moreover, increasing medical coverage for the patient population is expected to increase the volume of surgical procedures, thereby enhancing market growth.

Ambulatory surgical centers held more than 28% market share in 2022. Growing surgical interventions performed in the ASCs as compared to hospital settings due to easy access, low-cost surgeries, and convenience for the disabled and elder populations are the major factors anticipated to fuel the growth rate of ambulatory surgical centers over the forecast period.

Regional Insights

North America held the largest share of around 35% of the meniscus repair systems market. This can be attributed to rising cases of knee surgeries, along with growing healthcare expenditures are expected to drive the market in the U.S. Additionally, a rise in the number of meniscal-related surgeries owing to the availability of advanced diagnostic tools and a surge in the number of sports participations is one of the major factors augmenting the meniscus repair systems market across the region. 

Europe accounted to hold the second largest position in terms of market size and is anticipated at a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period. According to the European Commission, approximately, 19,800 people were killed in road crashes in 2021. With the rising number of surgical procedures, the need for meniscal repair systems is rising. The geriatric population base is also a major factor boosting the market in the region. The geriatric population is more susceptible to various types of orthopedic diseases, thus the need for surgical interventions, such as meniscal surgeries, is high.
