"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
The global orthobiologics market size was valued at USD 8.36 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 8.77 billion in 2023 to USD 12.78 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period.
Orthobiologics and regenerative medicine are often made from substances that are naturally found in the body and used to help injuries heal more quickly. These products are used in orthopedic procedures to improve the healing of broken bones, injured muscles, ligaments, and tendons.
One of the most significant factors driving the use of orthobiologics is the increasing prevalence of several bone diseases, such as bone tumors (malignant and benign) and bone infections (osteomyelitis). Apart from these, several other incidents and medical conditions require the administration of biologics. These conditions include different types of traumas - complex and simple, bone lesions, and also bone fractures. In such conditions, orthopedic biologic products often act as an optimum treatment solution for the repair of bone defects, thereby, supporting the global market growth. Furthermore, the market is expected to grow during the forecast period owing to the increasing use of stem cell-based allografts in various orthopedic procedures.
COVID-19 Pandemic Decelerated Market Growth Due to Declining Number of Patient Visits
The COVID-19 pandemic hindered the sales of orthobiologic products due to decreased patient volume. Key players operating in the market recorded a significant decrease in their profit margins due to the pandemic. The reallocation of healthcare resources, declining number of patient visits to emergency care & outpatient settings, disruptions in supply chains, and other major factors affected the demand for orthobiologic products across the world, especially during the first half of 2020. In terms of revenue, the market witnessed a decline of 10.6% in 2020.
The market players witnessed a major decrease in their revenue generated during 2020. For instance, Orthofix Medical Inc. registered a drop of -11.6% in its total revenue generated in 2020 as compared to 2019. The biologics segment of the company witnessed a drop of -15.3% in the same year. However, during Q3-Q4 2020, the total patient volume started increasing as the regulations imposed by the U.S. government were relaxed. However, the increase in patient volume was still lower than in 2019. In 2021, the patient volume bounced back in the U.S. owing to the factors, such as higher vaccination coverage among the general population, implementation of strong guidelines & COVID-19 protocols in public places, and reduction in restrictions for travel. This led to an increase in the demand for orthobiologic products in 2021. Moreover, the total revenue generated by Orthofix Medical Inc. in 2021 increased by 14.2% compared to that of in 2020. Therefore, the resumption of services led to a significant recovery of the market in 2021.
Furthermore, in 2022, the resumption of orthopedic surgeries and patient visits to hospitals for the treatment of dental and sports injuries had enabled the full recovery of the market, thereby reaching to pre-pandemic levels. The market is also expected to record a steady CAGR during the forecast period. For example, Johnson & Johnson Services, Inc. recorded net sales of USD 94,943 million in 2022, which is an increase of 1.2% as compared to 2021. The growth was due to the increased sales of orthopedic products, including orthobiologics, which showed the market’s recovery to the pre-pandemic level in 2022.
Increasing Use of Viscosupplements for Delaying Total Knee Replacement Procedure to Boost Product Adoption
Viscosupplements are used for the treatment of osteoarthritis. They play an important role in recovering the rheological properties of the synovial fluid, improving function, achieving analgesia, and regenerating the joint cartilage articular.
The adoption of viscosupplements has increased over the past few years due to their high effectiveness in delaying total knee replacement procedures.
Moreover, an increasing number of patients suffering from osteoarthritis across the world is one of the major contributors to the increased demand for viscosupplements.

Growing Cases of Orthopedic Injuries to Boost Market Progress
A rapid rise in the incidence of orthopedic injuries and musculoskeletal diseases leading to agonizing physical pain and limited mobility is the primary factor likely to drive the demand for orthobiologic products during the forecast period.
Moreover, a substantial rise in the incidence of osteoporosis categorized by low bone-to-mass density ratio and physical weakening of bone tissues, is responsible for the increasing prevalence of hip and backbone fractures. This factor is anticipated to propel the market growth in the coming years.
Therefore, the rising incidence of osteoporosis and increasing sports injuries among the U.S. population is expected to drive the market growth.
Increasing Number of Product Launches to Enhance Market Growth
The growing incidence of bone disorders has augmented the demand for orthobiologics products across the globe. The high demand for these solutions has encouraged the market players to introduce various types of products, such as allograft, bone growth factors, and synthetic bone substitutes.
Moreover, some market players are focusing on the launch of antibiotic-eluting bone void fillers to treat bone diseases, thereby spurring the market growth. Furthermore, a strong pipeline of these products planned by market players is expected to contribute to the market growth in the long run.
Such a strong focus of companies on the introduction of new products for bone void filling is anticipated to drive the market growth over the analysis period.
Issues Associated With Bone Morphogenetic Proteins and Clinical Limitations of Several Orthobiologics to Limit Market Growth
Medtronic’s INFUSE is the only bone morphogenetic protein available in the market. This product gained significant popularity after it received the U.S. FDA approval in 2002 for its use in spinal fusion procedures.
However, several years after the approval of INFUSE, Medtronic has been facing increased scrutiny for its BMP. The reasons associated with this scrutiny are the off-label use of INFUSE and serious complications associated with the product.
Moreover, bone graft substitutes have some clinical limitations, such as adverse tissue reaction, incomplete or lack of bone formation, and infection of soft tissue & bone. These disadvantages are expected to limit the demand for orthobiologics products during the forecast period.
Viscosupplements Gained a Significant Traction Due to Growing Incidence of Orthopedic Disorders
Based on product, this market is divided into viscosupplements, bone growth factors, Demineralized Bone Matrix (DBM), synthetic bone substitutes, cellular allograft, allografts, and others.
The viscosupplements segment accounted for a dominant share of the global market in 2022. This is primarily due to the increasing prevalence of knee osteoarthritis and degenerative arthritis, specifically among the rising geriatric population. Enhancements in reimbursement policies regarding approvals on viscosupplements are supporting the growth of this segment. Recent market approvals and the entry of new manufacturers are some of the other factors supporting the dominance of the segment.
The synthetic bone substitutes segment is anticipated to register the highest growth rate during the forecast timeline. The segment’s high growth is due to the increasing adoption of synthetic bone grafts in developed geographies, such as the U.S. and Europe. Moreover, the gradual shift of healthcare professionals from traditional bone grafts to their synthetic substitutes and rising focus of manufacturers on the launch of new products is expected to further propel the segment’s growth.
