Orthobiologics used for accelerating musculoskeletal injuries have witnessed increased demand in the recent past due to rapid developments in the market. Orthobiologics market is expanding globally due to introduction of newer products based on platelet rich plasma and stem cell technology. Orthobiologics utilize regenerative potential of the body and assist in quick recovery of patients. These products are widely used in orthopedic procedures for bone injury, soft tissue damage, spinal procedures, caranio maxillofacial procedures and others. With introduction of platelet rich plasma and stem cell therapy orthobiologics market has witnessed swift growth in other disease areas. Quicker adoption of viscosupplementation products, bone marrow concentrate and specific growth factors are other drivers for the market.
Currently autograft are most popular considering compatibility and lesser side effects. However, physicians often face dilemma in using autograft and allograft. Advantages of allograft include quick surgery time, and reduced donor site morbidity; however serious side effects disease transmission and rare availability subvert these merits. Body may also launch an immune response against the allograft which may lead to serious complications and may even lead to replacement of the allograft. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) has gained focus due to its increased acceptance in sports medicine. Therapeutic applications of PRP include chronic tendon injuries, ligament and muscle injuries, tissue healing in chronic injuries, and arthritis. However unapproved application of PRP in orthopedic procedures has raised serious concerns. Regulatory interference on use of PRP, and approvals of fewer products may encourage companies to invest more in PRP therapy.
