U.S. orthopedic regenerative surgical products market size, by product, 2018 - 2028 (USD Billion)

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacted the market for orthopedic regenerative surgical products due to the cancellation of elective procedures, disruptions in clinical studies, and low demand and sales. Companies also had to face operational challenges due to business closures, supply chain disruptions, travel restrictions, stay-at-home protocols, employee illness or quarantines, and other extended periods of interruption. In the U.S. for instance, several public health bodies recommended postponing elective surgeries to prevent cross-infection and meet the demands of managing coronavirus patients. Patients, too, deferred elective surgeries to avoid the risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus.

Post-COVID and as movement restrictions ease, elective surgeries are expected to increase over time as the underlying causes remain unaffected. Several regulatory bodies have released guidelines to help resume elective surgeries in a safe manner. These include guidelines prescribed by the American Society of Anesthesiologists (ASA), American Hospital Association, American College of Surgeons, and Association of periOperative Registered Nurses.

Orthopedic conditions such as osteoarthritis are the primary cause of disability in the geriatric population and a key driver for the market. According to research published by the Lancet and funded by the National Natural Science Foundation Council of China, the prevalence of knee osteoarthritis across the globe was found to be 16%. The prevalence was found to be higher in individuals aged 40 and above and was estimated to be 22.9% or about 645.1 million people in 2020. The incidence is expected to increase over the forecast period due to sedentary lifestyles, obesity, and an aging population, thus propelling the market for orthopedic regenerative surgical products.


COVID-19 led dip in revenue over 4.0% in the orthopedic regenerative surgical products market

Pandemic Impact

Post COVID Outlook

The earlier projections depicting 3.6% YoY growth was countered by the pandemic resulting in the difference of USD ~460 million revenue in the earlier and recent estimations

Gradual market recovery is anticipated in 2021 with YOY growth of 18.4% from 2020 and a CAGR of over 4.0% (2022- 2028) owing to, resumption of elective surgeries, backlog,  and increased target population

European and Latin American markets experienced significant surgical restrictions due to the pandemic. While APAC experienced restrictions to a lesser degree.

The viscosupplement market continued its shift towards single injection products which is expected to propel the growth over the forecast period.


By 2021, many companies reported recovery in sales with positive projections for the future. For example: Vericel achieved growth of around 5% in 2021 from last year.


Technological advancements fueled by increasing R&D studies and the use of emerging technologies such as stem cells, viscosupplements, and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapies are factors anticipated to drive the market. According to a 2020 survey published in the International Journal of Complementary and Alternative Medicine, 70% of the respondents viewed regenerative medicine therapies positively in the treatment of musculoskeletal problems. The response was more positive in the case of participants with personal experience of regenerative medicine therapies.PRP- and stem cell-based therapies are at the forefront of regenerative medicine research for indications including repair and restoration of damaged tissues, osteoarthritis, and trauma repair. In November 2020, Amniox Medical released the results from a retrospective study, wherein amniotic membrane/umbilical cord particulate were found to significantly delay Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) in moderate to severe knee osteoarthritis patients.

Product Insights

The viscosupplements segment dominated the market for orthopedic regenerative surgical products and accounted for the largest revenue share of 42.7% in 2020. This growth is owing to rising incidence of knee pain and osteoarthritis. Factors such as aging, obesity, excessive exercise, external injury, and genetic predisposition, further contribute to knee osteoarthritis, thus driving the market for orthopedic regenerative surgical products. In December 2019, Fidia Pharma USA Inc. for instance, launched Hyaluronic Acid-based viscosupplement- Triluron, in the U.S. for treating pain in osteoarthritic patients. Seikagaku Corporation, on the other hand, launched an intra-articular viscosupplement injection- HyLink in March 2019, in Italy. The product is CE marked and provides pain relief for 26 weeks in knee osteoarthritis patients.

The allografts segment is expected to witness a CAGR of 3.7% over the forecast period. This is because of the increasing use of allografts including fresh-frozen meniscal allografts, osteochondral allografts, off-the-shelf cartilage, and soft tissue allografts in orthopedic surgeries. According to JRF Ortho an Allograft Company, allografts offer several benefits such as decreased surgical time, better bone healing, fewer complications, and a quicker recovery time. The company has distributed more than 20,000 fresh osteochondral allografts and focuses on the sport medicine market.

Application Insights

The joint reconstruction segment dominated the market for orthopedic regenerative surgical products and accounted for the largest revenue share of 35.0% in 2020. The key factors attributing to this share include increasing surgical procedures, adoption of regenerative solutions in joint reconstruction, and technological advancements.  Amniox Medical, Inc. for instance, offers its Clarix line of surgical allografts for use in orthopedic surgery in various procedures such as trauma and reconstruction, arthroplasty, and soft-tissue repair.

The cartilage and tendon repair segment is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 3.8% over the forecast period due to growing applications in sports medicine, geriatric patients, and the incidence of trauma cases.MACI by Vericel, for example, is indicated for cartilage defects that result from injury due to general wear and tear, overuse, and muscle weakness in the knee. The company registered MACI revenue of USD 94.4 million for the year ending December 2020, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

End-user Insights

The hospitals segment dominated the market for orthopedic regenerative surgical products and accounted for the largest revenue share of 50.4% in 2020. The factors contributing to the large share of the segment include a higher volume of orthopedic procedures performed in hospital settings. The Gelenk Klinik orthopedic hospital in Germany for example, performs around 2400 surgical procedures every year and treats over 24,000 orthopedic patients annually.

Global orthopedic regenerative surgical products market, by end user, 2020 (%)
