Orthopedic devices are used to treat the disorders and injuries of the musculoskeletal system of human body. Orthobiologics are biomaterials used in orthopedic surgery as an adjunct to faster fusion and healing of the bone. Cartilage Repair procedures aim to regenerate, restore or replace articular cartilage to reduce joint pain and to prevent the development of arthritis.

Understanding market size can be crucial to evaluate opportunities and make informed decisions about market entry and exit. Medical device companies can identify attractive segments in respective markets as well as develop marketing strategies based on forecasts for those segments.

Cartilage Repair interventions can occur early in the spectrum of joint damage and offer an opportunity for patients to delay or altogether avoid needing total joint replacement surgery. Articular cartilage damage generally occurs via two main routes, sports-related and traumatic injury as well as through inflammatory arthropathies. There are several approaches employed to treat chondral lesions (cartilage damage) in the joints. The subsegments covered are Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection, Extracellular Matrix Implants, Intact Tissue Implants, and Marrow Stimulation (Microfracture). Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injection devices are able to draw a patient's own blood and process it into platelet-rich plasma through centrifugation and collection of the platelet-rich component. Extracellular Matrix Implants are decellularized implants that match or mimic the 3D structure of cartilage. Intact Tissue Implants are covered into three general categories: Osteochondral Autografts, Osteochondral Allografts, and Meniscal Allografts. Marrow Stimulation (Microfracture) procedures involve creating small holes in subchondral bone to produce a bleeding effect.

The cartilage repair market in Italy can expand or contract due to a variety of reasons including population demographics, disease incidence and prevalence, macroeconomic issues, and geopolitical considerations. Disruption to a market could be caused by a sudden, unexpected change in these factors, but it could also be driven by changes in clinical practice, leading to a change in diagnosis or treatment of patients, as part of a process to generally improve medical practice.
