Artificial Tendons and Ligaments Market Size, Share & Forecast, 2021-2030

The Global Market for Artificial Tendons And Ligaments estimated at US$ 16.2 Mn in the year 2021, is projected to reach a revised size of US$ 34.7 Mn by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 16.8%. A ligament is a piece of fibrous tissue that connects a bone to another bone. The ligament, a fibrous band of connective tissues which keep the bones together at the joints and supports the internal organs. The two main varieties of ligament are the white ligament, which is abundant in collagenous fibres, and the yellow ligament, which is abundant in elastic fibres. A strengthening material called an artificial tendon is used to replace a torn tendon. Bio-compatible fibres, such as polypropylene, polyacrylonitrile, PET (polyethylene terephthalate) are used to make artificial tendons (sodium styrene sulfonate). A team of researchers from the University of Utah's biomedical department recently developed a method to 3D print human tissue, including tendons and ligaments.
