2012-11-30 09:24:33 - Regenerative Medicines: Bone and Joint Applications - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
- Overall sales in the regenerative medicine products market were worth $1.1 billion in 2007, and remained flat into 2009. By 2014, sales are projected to increase to nearly $1.8 billion, for a 5-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.6%.- The largest segment in the market, bone replacement/grafting, was valued at $714 million in 2007. This also has increased only slightly into 2009 but is projected to reach $979 million in 2014, for a 5-year CAGR of 6.3%.- Sales in the bone growth stimulators product segment were worth $321 million in 2007, and were to increase slightly into 2009. By 2014, however, they are projected to increase to $578 million, for a 5-year CAGR of
Regenerative medicine is a relatively large and rapidly evolving segment of the healthcare business. The regenerative medicine industry has been in existence for nearly 25 years. Actual product sales, along with research and development (R&D) expenditures, are projected to amount to approximately $2 billion in economic activity in 2009. Bone and joint applications account for a little more than half of those revenues, or $1.2 billion. The rapid evolution of this business is evidenced by the industry consolidation that has occurred since 2003. In addition, intensive R&D efforts at universities and the National Institutes of Health that focus on cutting-edge technology underscore the importance of this industry.
The key objective of regenerative medicine is the utilization of living cells to repair or replace body tissue damaged by injury, disease, or the aging process. The most successful products have drawn upon multidisciplinary fields such as biology, medicine, engineering, and particularly biomedical engineering. The principal focus in this report is on bone and joint applications; however, other regenerative applications such as dental, neurologic, organ regeneration, cardiovascular, urologic, diabetes, and wound care are important. Stem-cell research is an important component of the sector as well. For example, the successful differentiation of embryonic stem cells into specific cell types is widely sought as a means to treat traumatic spinal-cord injury, as well as diseases such as diabetes, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, heart disease, and vision and hearing loss.
OBJECTIVES AND GOALS OF STUDY
This report focuses on the bone- and joint-related applications and markets for the various categories of regenerative medicine products currently available and projected to be introduced during the 5-year forecast period from 2009 to 2014. Market drivers discussed include an increase in diseases and disorders that will benefit from these products, primarily arthritis, osteoporosis, and various types of bone and joint trauma (e.g., hip fractures, knee injuries); increasing use of non-autograft products by physicians; and innovative devices that incorporate bone- and cartilage-growth-stimulating agents in a regenerative appliance. Products discussed include bone and cartilage grafting and regenerative products derived from autologous, allogeneic, and synthetic sources, as well as electrical stimulators for bone growth and regenerative cartilage products.
Profiles are provided of leading and emerging companies in the bone and joint regenerative medicine markets, along with analyses of the current and future positioning of their products and businesses in this active and rapidly changing market.
The aim of this report is to provide an overview of regenerative medicine products, both available and emerging, for the treatment of diseases and disorders of the bones and joints. The information and analysis presented are important assets in decision making for managers involved in business development, marketing, market research, product development, mergers and acquisitions, licensing, business management, investment banking, and deal creation, as well as to consultants to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. The study provides a comprehensive analysis of the current markets for regenerative medicine products for bones and joints, relevant applications, and the potential of products in development.
SCOPE OF REPORT
The U.S. has been the main regenerative medicine market both in terms of R&D innovation and product sales; hence, the scope of the study is mainly U.S., although worldwide developments are discussed where relevant. The Overview section provides a background of the demographics underlying the market for bone and joint products, a definition of regenerative medicine and the technologies involved, and a discussion of regenerative products in development for applications other than bones and joints. Various applications sections describe the leading bone and joint diseases and disorders applicable to regenerative technologies, including incidence and current methods of treatment.
The section on Products provides extensive descriptions and analyses (e.g., comparative analysis) of regenerative products used to treat bone and joint disorders, as well as a discussion of products in development.
The section on FDA clinical trials and newly approved products provides a discussion of regulatory issues affecting regenerative medicine products.
An extensive Company Profiles section provides a concise exploration of leading and emerging companies in the area of regenerative products for bones and joints, including product introductions, patents, and overall business strategies.&
