Key Trends and Analysis of the Collagen Meniscus Implant Market:

The collagen meniscal implant (CMI) (previously marketed as Menaflex) is derived from bovine collagen and is used to treat acute or chronic advanced meniscal loss or damage with the intent of relieving symptoms and preventing joint degeneration. According to the National Institute of Health Research 2017 report, meniscal replacement with CMI is indicated for patients with advanced loss of or damage to meniscal tissue that cannot be repaired. Moreover, the amount of damaged tissue must be over 25% of the total meniscus area and should extend at least into the red-white zone.

Increasing number of sports injuries and rising geriatric population are major factors that are expected to drive growth of the collagen meniscus implant market over the forecast period. According to the Journal of Athletic Training 2012 study, the risk of tearing a meniscus in the age group over 40 years was reported to be four times larger in comparison to age group below 20 years.

Manufacturers in the collagen meniscus implant market focus on developing new products and strategic mergers & acquisitions, in order to gain significant market share. For instance, in 2016, Stryker acquired New Jersey-based Ivy Sports Medicine, a company that develops minimally invasive meniscal repair solutions, for an undisclosed amount.
